A: Golden. Looks like most witbiers, though the particulate is a bit chunkier than most.
S: Lemony, with a hint of blueberries.
T: Citrusy, with an aftertaste of blueberries. I can't say that I'm digging this blueberry thing. I think "Wild Blue" ruined it for me.
M: A bit lacking in carbonation.
D: I can see this being a very drinkable beer, if you take a liking to it. I didn't, but I think it's more of a matter of personal preference than it is a case of a bad beer.

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.
