If you've ever experienced a Northwoods sunset, you know it's a moment unlike any other. So instead of putting it into words, we captured the Northwoods' finest moment in every batch of our all-new Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat. Brewed with malted wheat, Cluster hops and natural coriander, Sunset Wheat has a soothing taste that will leave you speechless. It's like your very own sunset in a bottle.

Very citrusy smell, pours cloudy with a medum head. Taste was kind of blah, but had citrus and wheat notes. Very carbonate. Finish wasn’t terribly pleasent. Not one of my favorite wheat beers.

Bottle. Poured cloudy orange color with an average creamy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate orange citrus wheat aroma. Medium body with sticky texture. Medium orange sweet flavor with a sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable soft brew.

From a 12 oz. twist cap long neck brown bottle with no freshness date. Made a decent appearance, poured a cloudy yellowish golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin fizzy lacing, soda-like carbonation. Had a lemon and orange zesty nose with spices, pepper and sweet malts at the edges. A crisp, carbonated smooth medium bodied mouth feel, average drinkability. Taste like a strange combination of lemon and orange pop (soda), the sour lemoniness balanced by a sweet orange, I’m guessing the orange flavor is from the coriander, very mild peppery, and buried sweet maltiness that only adds to overall sweetness of the taste. This was just too soda-like for my taste, fizzy and sweet, in my opinion, not a very good summer beer. If you let this sit for a little bit, it finishes like a flat soda.

I am tasting so many elements, like anise and citrus, but overall I have to say: it tastes like bug spray smells. I won’t buy it again.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2007 Pours a light hazy gold with a great big white head. Aroma is orange, dry cereal. Not getting any spice in the aroma. Just like the description states..... The soothing taste will leave you speechless. Ummm..............................................

Very solid, though sweet, brew here. I liken it to a nice after dinner stogie. Perfect for those hazy summer evenings on the patio. Consumed out of bottle

This looks good enough and could pass for a good wheat beer. It has substantially more wheat than the honey weiss; but is a little thinner. The aroma has a lot of citrus and so does the flavor. But there is also a strange sweet flavor and just makes this beer not work. It is sour, and even more so with the citrus, but it is trying to run the middle ground between hefeweizen, wit, and crappy American wheat and the result is a beer that nearly works, but not quite.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a normal sized head. Nose is licorice and citrus. Flavors continue with spice and anise flavors with citrus/lemon and a dash of banana. I was completely very pleasently suprised by this one and was sorry to see the pint end. Very interesting merger of flavors. Creamy, refreshing, delicious; I’d definately have this one again. Thanks to jhammerly for the bottle.

Leinenkugels attempt at a belgian style wheat beer. Flavor is a little to fruity for my tastes, I much prefer a blue moon or a Point wit bier. Carbonation and appearance are good and the aroma smells slightly of oranges. People who dont usually drink beer would probably like this one.
