Leinenkugels Sunset Wheat pours a very cloudy amber blond from a 12oz dark brown glass bottle with a twist off cap. Head went to about two fingers then went down to a broken carpet of foam islands with a full ring.
Nose is a wonderful lemon grapefruit citrus. Palate... is a citrus something... grapefruit peal, coriander, and the bight of carbonation. Missing are the banana and clove that I was expecting to find.
This brew could pass for a Belgium White, except for the color, good tasting... but just a bit off style in my humble opinion

Again, Leinenkugel continues to wow me in many different ways, providing me with memorable flavors in numerous different varieties. If we're referring to it as a "macrobrew," then it's currently my favorite macrobrew, for few other breweries I've had churn out more and more delicious products with extreme consistency.
Sunset Wheat is, by far, the brewery's most underrated offering to date. We don't carry it at my specific store, but I feel it compliments the summer season beautifully, and just as well as their equally impressive line of shandies. The beer, a lot like Bell's Oberon, bears a taste eerily similar to the smell and intoxication one gets from the archetypal summer night, and to that I don't complain. It's a taste that combines the succulent aroma of aromatic hops combined with a taste that's equal parts fruity and absorbing as it is slightly bitter, but nowhere near the offputting equivalent of a pale ale.
All and all, another great beer from a terrific brewery. Here's to officially earning it.
