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.

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 (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!

This beer has a great overall flavor that of a bowl of blueberries or a bowl fruity pebbles

Pretty good summer beer in the vain of fruity wheat beers a la Blue Moon. This has a richer flavor and worth your time if your other choices are exclusively Miller, Coors, Bud.

DialSquare (3191) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2015
12oz bottle from Kroger, Grandview. Yellow gold pour. Aroma of lemon, lime, wheat, light sour. Tastes are sweet wheat, lemon, berry. Light palate. Can see why the uninitiated would like this - goes down easy enough.

VAYankee (334) - Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Hazy orange amber with a small white head. Sweet orange and lemon aroma on top of a bit of wheat. Flavor is sweet and softly citrusy, with a light graininess. Palate has a medium to light body and soft carbonation.

rondphoto (2634) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 22, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy medium orange amber, persistent 1" egg-white head, wavy bands of lace. Bright aroma of fresh orange. Taste is malt and orange citrus that moves easily through the palate, becoming tart on the swallow, then taking on an unusual (but not bad) sweet malty orange to finish. Actually, a reasonable, thirst quenching, but also bloating brew. Jury’s still out...enjoy the orange.

loubar (144) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Light nose with some pleasant sweetness, ginger and orange peel overtones. Unbalanced taste seems artificial and candy like with no discernible malt or hops background. Thin body. Weak overall, with a slight sourness. Otherwise pretty much like a soda pop.
