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.

Bottled. Millerís answer to Blue Moon, I suppose. Pours cloudy, a surprise in itself. A sure enough big wheaty head with some lacing, that sticks around to the end. I get an Orange Shasta smell, and since I like the smell of orange pop, I call that okay. Some of the wit-type coriander does come up, too. Taste matches the smell pretty well. A rather nice, orangey glow that by rights should put this into a fruit beer category. Any spice and hops just blend well into the overall impression. Another very serviceable lawnmower beer.

Pours light cloudy yellow with a citrusy smell. The flavor has an orange spice with lunchmeat flavor. Lasting citus flavor. Actually this is pretty refreshing when you concentrate on the citrus, but nasty if you pickup on the lunchmeat spiciness.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2006
Bottled. Poured a hazy dull golden with a short-lived white head. Nose was powerfully sweet... candy-like with orange, lemon, and spices. Sweetness became out of hand in the flavor and palate departments... Lemonheads come to mind, backed by an orange and coriander assault. Lighter-bodied. Some sour citrus highlights and a little grainy. It would be hard to drink more than one of these at a sitting.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2006
Cloudy straw color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was fairly spicy and citrusy,kind of nice actually and surprising from a macro brewer,didnít think they could do that.The taste is a little disappointing though.starts off as sort of cerealish in the beginning with a decent spice showing and some grainieness.Then is switches to a spicy lemon thing and the after taste lingers on and on and on.Itís hard to say if this is good or not but i guess from just the idea of would i drink this in volume,then no.It has plenty of flavor but just seems a little unbalanced in some way.Kind of a macro trying to look like micro by masking one of there cheap pilsners with some clouds,spice and fruit.Nice try but iím not fooled by this one.

Light and refreshing. Easy to drink and bubbly. Hints of wheat and then sweet sour citrus candy. Grainy malt finish. After a couple the bitterness lingers on the palate and becomes annoying. Still not a bad beer, I will be enjoying this over the course of the summer.

PhillyBeer2112 (2523) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2006
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.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2006
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 Iíd just finished sucking on chaep hard candy.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2006
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.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2006
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. Iíve never had a beer quite like this one. Itís basically "lemonade on steroids" or "oberon light"...
