An ok beer for sure, but not one that I will be rushing out to get again. The pour was nice with a good frothy white head and a nice cloudy golden color. The smell was a bit too sweet for me, it smelt like fresh blueberries with a hint of lime in there. The taste was ok with a bitter citrus flavor up front, followed by a pretty dry aftertaste of blueberries once again. The mouthfeel did not impress me either, it was too frothy. Anyways, try it if you are looking for something new, but there are many better witbier's our there for sure.

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.
