Poured from amber bottle to a pint glass. Cloudy honey color with little white head that quickly disappears with no lacing observed.
Had an apricot jam yesterday and this smells like an apricot jam. Grassy smell as well.
Taste develops in layers that begin with apricot taste and sweetness that develops into a lemony tart taste and a slow finish with a lingering bitterness.
Fresh taste with lots of carbonation that sizzles on the tongue. Creamy texture.
Overall an interesting taste and a local beer that I would drink again but not frequently. I will look for this on tap. Shout out and best regards to the Leinenkugel family and their brewers.

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.
