2/5 rDev -40.5%
look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 3
A - Average looking but soapy head. The beer is a cloudy light amber similar to the look of blue moon. Hardly any lacing to speak of.
S - Orange Juice, and Fruity pebbles. I would try to be more serious with this response, but I am being truthful in that is what I am smelling. I just really don't like fruity pebbles.
T - Not much to it, fairly sweet and very fruity but watery.
M - Not much here either, watery, with a bit of a soda like zing from the carbonation.
D - I made this a 3 because I am not arguing that the beer is not drinkable, it is drinkable the same way that bud light is drinkable it's just not enjoyable for me to drink because I am turned off by the smell and taste.
I can see how some would like this brew, and a friend of mine really hyped it up before I tried it. I was disappointed, but you may like it, so give it a whirl. Everyone deserves a chance.

Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat 6pk bottles $8.99(OH)
12 oz brown bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. Freshness date painted just below bottle neck.
Pours a Orange, burnt gold color. Looks like a witbier. A two finger bright white head that goes away pretty quick, Leaving some lines of lacing running down.
The aroma is a nice bright orange smell, with a few spices. Wheat and coriander. Smells a lot like blue moon but the coriander is much more subtle.
Taste follows the nose. An excellent balance of oranges, wheats, and spices. Tastes a lot like blue moon, but in my opinion much better. The coriander is more subtle, and lets the wheaty orange shine through. There is a slight taste of blueberries in the finish.
Mouth feel is good. No complaints. Good carbonation. You never want to over carbonate a wheat beer. Smooth crisp and clean from start to finish.
Overall In my opinion this is what blue moon should be. An almost perfect balance of wheat oranges and spices. Blue moon is strong on the coriander. This is a nice witbier. One of my favorite from leinie's. I will buy it over blue moon anyday, but witbiers aren't my favorite style.

3.21/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
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.
