Pours a cloudy orange with a good off white head. Smells like Fruit Loops, and unfortunately tastes a little like it as well. I canít understand this beer. It is flat on the palate and tastes rather artificial. I donít know what they were thinking with this beer, but I donít like it. Strangely though I have a friend who really does like it. But then again, he really likes Fruit Loops.

Hazy, orange-yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has a lot of orange juice with some light lemon. It has a light body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet and refreshing.

Pours a very cloudy orange. About one finger head. Lots of little floaties in there. Not a lot of lacing.

Smells very fruity, like rock candy. There might be a touch of spiciness in there.

Flavor is very sweet. Again, rock candy or Fruity Pebbles, and its very nice. Iím sure itís chock full of artificial ingredients, but it works great. There is a little spicy citrus in it, must be the coriander. It also has some wheat bread flavor. But its buried in there. I only noticed it after it warmed up a bit.

Mouthfeel is medium. Itís unfiltered so it has some texture to it, but it works well with the flavor. Itís very sweet and slightly spicy. Itís fruity. It makes it extremely drinkable. You could pass this off as juice or kool aid or something. Its super refreshing.

Overall, I enjoyed this a lot. Iím not a super fan of flavored beers, because they usually fall short of expectations. This never mentioned fruit flavor on the label so it was surprising. But this is good, better than expected. Iím a little ashamed that I like it as much as I do. I would certainly have it again, but I probably wouldnít commit to a 6 pack.

라이넨쿠겔 브루 - 선셋 위트 4.9% ABV 잔에 따르니 잘게 다이스된 조각들이 떠다녀 한모금 마셔보니 코리엔더 씨앗, 오렌지 껍질 맛에 치중한 윗비어. 씁쓸한 껍질까지 신선한 테일에 잘 살아있다. 네추럴. 사실 윗 비어는 2013년 남독일 바이에른의 아우스부르그&# 도시에서 우연히 마신 로컬 밀매주가 최강이었는데 잔에 따를때 병 바닥의 효모가 긴 포물선을 그리며 소이탄 떨어지듯 잔으로 서서히 추락하는 모습이 아직도 기억난다. 이후로 밀맥주는 반드시 잔에 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

Carlisle (282) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Draft at Miller Valley. Somewhat opaque copper color with off-white head and substantial lacing. Spice, licorice, and pepper aroma. Citrus and string coriander upfront follows by grass and wheat with licorice. Substantial mouthfeel. Long, drying finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dacrza (693) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Date: June 3, 2015... Glassware: Weihenstephan wheat... Occasion: pre-Fourth of July prep (mostly) done... Appearance: hazy, golden, glowing--an unfiltered look; the head is snow white and thick, leaving solar flares as it descends from a three-finger head to a quarter-inch cream... Aroma: surprisingly fruity hits early--coriander, yes, but bubblegum, malty wheat, and some woody hints; fragrant wheat esters complete an alluring start... Palate: smooth, slightly astringent sip; surprisingly creamy and medium-bodied; some effervescence late; some intrusion from pulpy, woody textures...Taste: the coriander suggests orange peel, with some odd bitterness and band-aid astringency; probably could use a garnish to amplify the flavor profile; otherwise, pretty limited .Overall: not quite the sunset promised by the label; the hops addition makes for a strong start, but the most important aspect of the experience--the taste--is a bit off...the beer is refreshing but not enjoyable as a stand-alone; crisp but uneven...

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.
