Purchased as a variety pack from Beer Zoo in Harrisburg, PA.
A-clear and appealing
T- it had a fruity pebble taste to it. They made it work though.
D-This is one of those beers that you have once and awhile because of the taste (see above). I could never just sit and drink this as a six pack or case.
Overall i like the beer just not the fruity raste.

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.

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.
