COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Pale, light straw yella, hazed appearance, with a snowy white head that drifts down to a slight sheet, then a faint ring. Aroma, bright lemon and orange zest, with light spices on the side. Immediately feels just right for a witbier nose. Clean, zippy, fruity, creamy citrus with commanding coriander. Big lemon on the tongue, meringue pie, creamy and fruity, but without much substance below. Fills the mouth, but without much beyond lemon, then softly slips away. Way too much lemon in this, not even enough orange, and the spice has disappeared in the flavor. Apes the wit in aroma and looks, but chokes when it comes to the actual taste of it. too thin in body in the end, just a vapor of character. Finish diminishes behind a whisper of lemon. Drinkability misses, too, bases on the too- pointed presence of lemon, against anything else. I guess I’d drink it if I had to, but they could have done better, could have tried harder.

Nice, sweet, fruity taste. Very similar to Blue Moon, but somewhat more robust. Good beer for a hot day.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 24, 2006
In the bottle from MacDoogles in Pineville AR. Pours an orange-gold color with a chunky white head and huge carbonation bubbles. Aroma is awesome of passion fruit! The taste is citrus, much like a shandy. Lemon-lime. Has a medium sweetness. This is surprisingly a good beer. The body is thin like all Leine’s, but tasty.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Bottle... Hazy, pear-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Fruity nose... tropical fruits mostly. Not your typical hefeweizen. Odd nose, even for an American wheat, but very nice. No banana or spice. The flavor is tangy, but even more sweet. Fruity, breadsy, perfumey. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes crisp and lightly tart. Thanks go out to MilkmanDan for bringing the bottle down from Minnesota!

patrick767 (3727) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2006
bottle - Pours cloudy orange with a thin head. This one has a very assertive citrus aroma. The carbonation is light and the body medium, combining for a pleasant mouthfeel. The flavor is sweet with strong citrus notes and tastey spices. Sunset Wheat is an interesting and refreshing wheat beer. I enjoyed it.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Pale with small head. Aroma is of chemical apricots and not too pleasant.Starts watery and bland, gives way to an apricoty middle with lightly bitter hoppy tones and a slightly sour finish. Not good.
