1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 Holy lemonheads batman! Big lemon lime candy nose on this one! Also,a spicy, doughy lemon pie, and even a blueberry muffin, note. Not much up front, rather it fades quickly into a moderate bitter hop finish, but a lingering spicy coriander manages to surfaces after the hop finish. Still, lemon candy throughout. Weird. Resamples features a weird blueberry note that when mixed with the lemon, it smells and tastes like fruity pebbles. Pretty awful.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Looks good, a hazy straw body with a decent sized head, but the aroma smelled way too artificial, like orange and lemon candy with soapy yeast. The flavor was an improvement, starting with soft wheat and a smattering of barley malt, but then the faux orange and lemon surged forward again, leaving a finish like I’d just finished sucking on chaep hard candy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy orange with lingering white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, lemon and orange. Flavor is strong wheat upfront but finishes nicely with orange and lemon. Bit of a mild lemon zest and orange rhine aftertaste. Will be one of my top summer brews.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours cloudy golden with a short white foamy head that stayed pretty well. Aromas of yeast, wheat, and lemon. Flavor was a little bit of wheat but mostly orange and lemon. A touch of spice on the back of the sip too. Palate is light and carbonated pretty well. On a warm day this is o.k. but nothing great.

Nice - light summer beer with a short lasting white head. Orangy smell with a touch of lemon, very citrusy taste. I’ve never had a beer quite like this one. It’s basically "lemonade on steroids" or "oberon light"...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is a BLAST of lemony coriander and sweet candy. WAY over the top on the coriander. I might detect the faintest hint of malt. Color is a hazy orange-yellow, a bit dark for a wit (assuming that is what it is really sort of intended to be, though bastardized). The head was big on the pour, and a small head sticks around for the whole session. The flavor is of lemony, orangey coriander, with some pepper, and a tad of grainy malt in the finish. Very sweet in the mouth but very dry in the finish. The pepper spiciness and coriander flavors stick around in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium-full. This ain’t a wit, and it ain’t even a good example of an American wheat. It is far too overdone. No hop bitterness to balance the sickly sweetness. This beer may please the girlie masses, but it doesn’t please me.

My roommate brought a case of these home, so I had to steal one. Sweet and citrusy smell. Taste very similair to the auroma. Doubt I could drink a lot of thse because of the taste, but one is good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours to a very unfiltered straw colored body with a dense but thin lasting white head. The aroma is white bread, light bubblegum, lightly tart wheat. The flavor is white bread, light bubblegum, subtle spices. Some tartness exists on the palate. Well carbonated, chewy but not gritty. Medium bodied. Very serviceable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2006 Leinie’s Sunset Wheat is a great alternative to the fine coriander taste of Blue Moon. Sunset Wheat is a thinnish lager that pours nicely into a pint glass but loses its head rather quickly. I tasted orange/coriander bursts throughout this enjoyable brew, but was very taken by a strong impression of blueberries. My cousin and his girlfriend insisted that they tasted no blueberry, but I am quite sure I wasn’t too tipsy after only one beer! Anyway, this beer will make a great addition to the Leinenkugel year-round stable, and is heartily recommended for anyone looking for something a little different for their next cookout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy straw color w/ a whispy white head. Palate is well carbonated ok coating. Aroma is a light lemon zest hop some grain notes a light carmel malt is notable. Flavor is light & very easy to drink smooth lightly sweet hints of wheat w/ a dry lemon zest finish. This would be really good on a hot day.
