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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2006 Leinieís 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 wasnít 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.

MIBRomeo (2493) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2006
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.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2006
Pours a cloudy yellow. Citrussy smell. Nice tartness and very refreshing. This will be a very popular beer in the hot summer! Not nearly as fruity as Blue Moon. This is not a flavored beer by any means. Fairly high carbonation and very little bitterness. This is a very nice brew from a mainstream brewery.

vyvvy (3612) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 15, 2006
Pours hazy yellow with pillowy white head that goes away quickly. Aroma is strong lemony citrus - slight wheat under it, but the citrus is strong. This doesnít even taste like beer - lots of citrus upfront, mainly lemon, but some orange aspects as well. Finish has the citrus and a bit of a blueberry taste. Not what I was expecting at all. Further down the glass a bit of spice becomes apparent on the finish. Very crisp and refeshing - great summer beer.

Metalhead (623) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2006
UPDATED: APR 23, 2006 Hazy golden glow,minimal head. Citrus/orange peel aroma and taste. Light on the wheat with a hint of perfume. Definite carbonation. Makes ya belch for sure.Good summer beer and one of the better ones by them Iíve had. The more I drink this beer the better I like it. Just canít drink more than a few.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Cloudy straw color with a creamy, small white head. Blueberries, coriander, and mild orange peel in the aroma. A touch to perfumy in my book. Lightly acidic with a touch of wit. Quite fizzy, but appropriately quenching. A cross between an american wheat and a wit. A bit sweet and fruity for me. A wit version of the Berry Weiss IMO.
