Drank out of a bottle at a state park in South Dakota. Color seemed to be light golden or light orange, but a bit cloudy. Head and film/lacing - N/A.
Smelled citrusy, mainly lemon, lime and orange. Also some wheat in there. Good smell. Pretty explosive.
First taste was cloudy, but then exactly like Fruity Pebbles. Lots of fruit flavors blended together.
Refreshing, crisp and perfect for the summer. Stayed good throughout.
Enjoyed this beer overall. Felt a bit like a girl for liking it, but I would definitely have it again.

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.
