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.

A very enjoyable wheat beer from one of my favorite breweries. Fruity taste that is especially good during the spring and summer. However, this is a year-round brew for Leinie.

Leinenkugelís beers fill some niche slots on my go-to lists. (Think Inexpensive and Commonly Available.) Hey, sometimes you need some backup options. Sunset Wheat may not be the go-to in the Wheat Ale category, but it could be a runner-up in the right circumstances. Appearance is nice. Iím a sucker for heady wheat ales and Sunset Wheat isnít do too bad. Aroma is faint but has a nice bread note. Flavor reveals subtle spiciness, honey sweetness, and smooth malt. Mouthfeel is relatively thirst-quenching yet on the thin side. While Blue Moon is still my go-to Wheat that can be found anywhere, there may be times Iíd be willing to swap the Sun(set) for the Moon.

A good summer beer. The color is a cloudy orange. It is very good but like the summer Shandy is very fruity. I would still recommend it as a light summer beer.

AtronSeige (917) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 17, 2015
Aroma: Medium-high orange zest. medium apricot. Appearance: Hazy, burnt gold body. Small, white head, fair retention. Flavour: Medium floral, fruity, peachy, apricots. Medium crispness. Sherbet. Dry finish with lingering sherbet. Medium sweetness, low bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: Tastes like sherbet sweets. The sweetness makes it hard to want to have another one. Not meeting the spicy requirements of a wit. 330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Danie! 16A. Witbier

Leinenhugels are always too fruity and sweet for me and this is no different. 'Beer with natural flavors' = wine cooler to me. Not a bad drink but it is a bad beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I give this an across the board average rating. I used to think it was above average, but the more I try it as well as other witbiers I have to rate it middle of the road. Fruity-citrus flavor, but not as citrusy as Blue Moon, and a bit lighter and thinner. Pours a pale golden-yellow versus a yellow-orange like Blue Moon. Has a little bit of head. A decent daytime beer if looking for something on the lighter side.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Bowl of fruity pebbles on the nose. Bowl of fruity pebbles on the palate with a wheat and corn aftertaste. Fairly refreshing although a little too sweet.

TBone (13816) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle at San Juan. Hazy orange color, medium-sized off-white head. Aroma has sweet fruits, coriander and bread. Light bodied, watery palate. Flavor has sweetish wheaty fruityness, light coriander. Kind of witbier. Not anything I like so much, but my first Leinenkugels after 13200 ratings!
