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.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2007
Bottled. An unclear orange beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma is very spicy with notes of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg as well as strong notes of wheat. The flavor is sweet and very wheaty and very spicy again cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg are present, leading to a dry spicy and wheaty end. The body is thin.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Degarth. Hazy, golden with an off-white head. Very spicy accents in the nose - slightly gingery. Thin and somewhat watery body, sweetish, spicy and almost soapy. Dy finish. But a decent summer quencher. 200507

madmitch76 (17158) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2010
17th September 2008. Another weak ’lager like’ wheat from this brewery. This at least goes down a little easier. Flavoured with a little orange. Not great but didn’t have to force it down.

Draught at Freaking Frog, Las Vegas
Cloudy blond color. Some wheat aroma, cookies too, milky; strange. The aroma is not bad, unfortunately the flavor is bad: weak, empty, dry, with an unpleasant aftertaste, a bit herbal.

yngwie (14773) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2013
On tap. It’s an unclear orange colored beer with a white head. The aroma is very orangey, in a very artificial way. Some spice notes and a malty touch. The flavor is pretty much the same, the artificial orange dominates, leaving little room for the malts and spices. Medium body. Sure drinkable, but way too artificial. 130808

TBone (13637) - 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!

Oakes (13185) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 23, 2008
Opaque tan. Spicy, brash nose - not refined but full of spice, orange. Creamy with orange and pear. Sweet and sour, like a candy. Quenching, wheat note in the finish.

rlgk (12521) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2008
(Draught at Miller Brewhouse, Newark Airport, New Jersey). Cloudy yellow, white head. Fruity, artificial aroma. Spicy lime flavor, again with that artificial feeling.
