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.

The Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat beer has a pleasant wheat aroma. It has a golden appearance with finger thick head that disappears within 3-4 minutes. The beer has a strong but not overpowering wheat taste and a pleasant wheat and kinda fruity aftertaste. Personally I like this beer and think of it as one of Leinenkugel’s best. A good buy for wheat beer lovers that do not want to spend huge bucks will buy again.

Draft pours a hazy orange with very little head. Mild aroma, mostly wheat. The taste is smooth and mostly orange, wheat aswell. Not too bad of a wheat ale.

FlyersFan (14) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle poured into chilled glass: hazy, light amber color with medium white head that dissolves in 30 seconds. Lace is present. Strong blackberry and wheat aroma. Tastes like wheat and slightly of berries, and leaves a weak orange aftertaste that quickly turns into a not-so-good aftertaste. I will NOT have this again. Maybe it’s an acquired taste...

hfdsap Hazy cloudy orange. Full head diminishing to soapy. Creamy and slightly sweet. Wheat and orange. Underrated beer!

Pours a slightly hazy Holden amber. Little to no head and no lacing. Aroma do flowers and grass. Some wheatiness to it. Light bodied. Tastes like a wheat beer with kool aid poured in it. Somewhat refreshing. But not really beer.

Don't know where everyone gets fruit loops from but I only taste orange at the finish with a slight bitterness. If you're an IPA drinker you won't like it but I like switching back and forth when I get too hopped out.... it's a summer flavor that goes well into fall as well.

I was disappointed. How a person would want to drop an orange slice into this beer baffles my imagination. I can picture two days during the summer that I would actually like this beer. Each day would be extremely hot and I would have been in the sun. Yes to having one Leine’s Sunset Wheat. Two would be too many.
