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.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2013 12oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium amber with a small (less than 1 finger) white soapy head that receded down to a thin scattered film with poor lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt and a sweaty yeast with notes of wheat, citrus (orange) and a bit of coriander. The taste was about the same as the aroma with just a little orange zest and a hint of spice at the end. The flavor lasted an average time with a yeasty citrus taste left behind. Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery and slightly creamy texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this was an average Wheat Ale with a nice tasty and refreshing drinkability. Would be good on a hot summer’s day when you felt like having more than just a couple...

Excellent wheat, fruit, and lemonade flavors, which come through when you smell it. Great to drink on a warm summer day.

Bottle at friends house, didn’t cup this one. Golden color I think; aroma of fruity citrus and some wheat. Taste is pretty much the aroma with more lemon/orange notes and wheat malt sweetness. Light body, moderate-heavy carbonation, sweet with faint coriander spice on finish. Seems like something to pour and add a orange wedge too, nice light flavored wheat ale.

DocJitsu (826) - Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours a light golden color with a one-finger white head. Vegetable matter dispersed throughout on a vigorous pour. Banana-lemon taffy nose. Full body with some fine burn from carbonation. Taste approximates the nose. Last third gets somewhat bitter, but the finish yields a banana sweetness.

12 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet fruits, oranges, some berry character (?), pale malts, light coriander spice, this is a strange brew that I will likely not sample again.

TXBadger (1222) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Pours a cloudy dark orange color with white head. Coriander, cloves, and some raw wheat notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, and a little chewy. Easy drinking and not too sweet.

decent head, little lacing, pleasant aroma - a bit fruity. Nice citrus taste but not overbearing like their Shandy’s. Very refreshing. A nice summer evening on-the-deck beer.
