I have this thing where i like beer. ALL beer. I like ale, lager, Belgian, German, English, dark, light, hoppy, malty, sweet, bitter, sour, spicy, whatever. I've had good examples of darn near every style of beer on earth.
Which is why i'm so surprised that i hated this beer so much. HATED it. This is literally only the second beer i've ever tasted that i could not finish because it was so bad it had to be poured down the drain. The other? Cave Creek Chili Beer, which we all know is a joke beer not even meant to be consumed except by poor college frat pledges being hazed.
It was not skunked nor oxidized nor infected. Rather, it tasted like someone took Widmer Hefeweizen and soaked a bowl of Fruit Loops in it for about a day. Some sort of sick alcopop kind of thing going on here, with cheap imitation fruit flavors. Poorly imitated fruit flavors.
Just gross and i will never touch it again. I'm gettin the shakes just thinking about my experience with this beer.

Pours a murky brownish yellow color, smells of wheat citric coriander and blueberry. It really does taste like fruity pebbles, with a wheat kick at the end.
This is one of those beers that serves a purpose, it's a great fruity beer for summer time. I would never drink it otherwise, but it makes a perfect campfire beer.

Love this beer. I'm a big fan of all of Leinenkugel's seasonals though. When smelling and tasting the sunset wheat, it resembles fruit loops in my opinion. I could easily drink a six pack of this in a short period of time, and I have. Definitely give this a try if you like fruity tasting beers.
