12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden color. There's slightly less than a finger worth of white-colored head; it's nicely creamy yet underwhelming in retention. Only a thin ring of lacing is left behind.

S: Does anyone know how Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat smells like Fruity Pebbles? Well to me, this hits a note closer to actual blueberries, but there is a slight presence of that great Fred Flinstone-backed cereal. There are also vague touches of wheat, but this mostly shows off the fruit foremost. Genuinely not bad at all.

T: The first flavor that hits the tongue is the sensation of tart blueberries. It's not that sugary, thankfully. I'll give it some more credit - the blueberries seem natural instead of artificial (suck it Leinie's!) That and a wheaty finish are just about all the flavor profile offers. I can't give it a high score due to that, but it still does its job (being a warm weather refresher) admirably.

M: Creamy yet well carbonated, with a surprisingly neutral (not too sweet or dry) finish. It's just dry enough to be refreshing, and just sugary enough to hit that sweet tooth nicely. Very well carbonated, too. Only complaint is that it could be a touch less slimy on the palate.

O: It is what it is. It's a dead simple yet refreshing fruit beer that's panacea during 100 degree weather. I like how it isn't as cloying as certain fruit beers, also. Not great, but it'll still find a place in my fridge during the summer months.

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a 1” white head that recedes rapidly with light lacing. Color is light golden and clear with a few carbonation bubbles streaming.
Aroma: blueberries are the dominate smell. Can’t really detect anything other than that, maybe a little grassy aroma.
Mouthfeel: light, watery, refreshing with a mostly dry finish.
Flavor: a very mild hop bitterness lingers at the end. Other than that there is some sweet bready malt flavors and a grassy wheat taste. If you like blueberries, you will enjoy this beer. It truly has blueberry flavor without being cloyingly sweet.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a bright yellow. Lots and lots of bubbles. small 1/2 finger head that is pretty bubbly. Less than average retention

S - Smells very sweet. The blueberry is present and rules the beer. Smells like a blueberry pie

T - Not nearly as sweet as the smell would indicate. The blueberry is present but balanced nicely by the malts. Another good note is the blueberry tastes like real blueberries and not a fake addititive

M - very light and bubbly in the mouth. Easy to drink and smooth as can be

O - This would be a good summertime poolside beer. I wouldnt want to drink it all the time but its a nice change every once in a while
