UPDATED: AUG 9, 2006 The best seasonal beer Iíve ever had. It reminded me of Blue Moon but with a stronger flavor of corriander. Distinctive, suprisingly decent body, sweet aromas. And the name just makes you want another!

A very fruity tropical beer. The wheat and the malt are dominate in this one and while American wheat are a bit more fruity, this one really shines out.

Not bad, has a bit of a fruit loop flavor to it, with some interesting orange ctirus rind and corriander flavors. A bit of that wheaty yeasty flavor, but that is mostly in the background and unrecognizable.

This aroma and taste are fruity with malt. The appearance is interesting. The palate is thin but ok. I like this beer even though itís a tad thin.

Sweet orange aroma. Spicey, sweet orange taste. A nice change for a hot summer day.

Bottle. A very strange beer. Strong fruit like peach aroma almost like a fuzzy navel. I think if I had been blindfolded I might not have guessed that it was a beer. Tasted more like a wine cooler. All the same it was at least drinkable as a beverage, although not a good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Kane County Cougars game. Spice in the nose like corriander or allspice. Cloudy, brownish orange from what I could tell looking through a plastic cup. Off-white head. Tastes like it smells; spices. Some dough in the finish. Not bad. Better than Leinieís hefe. Not quite sweet enough. There is some flavor aspect I donít like. Buddy says it tastes like fruit loops. My second time having it out of a bottle was a noticeably better experience. Banana notes with some sweetness. A good summer quencher with flavor.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2006 Leinenkugels Sunset Wheat
12 oz bottle
Recent bottling, sipped on 07/30
Medium pour in a tulip glass
Poured a cloudy golden outer edge with a denser orange copper middle with a disappointingly fast dissapating 1/4 inch head.
Smelt of candied oranges, like orange gummi bears.
Taste a pleasant ascent into candied oranges, reminescent of orange gummy candy, followed by a hint of spicy flowery wheat and settling into a short sourness. A bit short and timid though. Mouthfell was light and effervescent.
Overall, a surprisingly tasty refrehing summer wheat lacking only complexity and length.

medium yellow with a nice white head. Nose is sweet citrus. Flavor is also a sweet citrus blend. maybe a little too sweet. Reminsicent of the green or orange froot loops. Not a good thing in a beer. Body was a bit thin. Cloying sweetness lingered far too long.
