12 once bottle poured in pint.
2 1/2 fingers of head sat on top of a hazy almost light orange beer that reminded me of unfiltered apple juice in color. the head receded quickly to thin layer with very little lacing. Not bad over all.
Smelled of citrus and coriander with a hint of biscuit dough. Light and crisp couldn't wait to drink.
Tasted much the same as it smelled though a bit more subdued. Orange rind with a hint of lemon, coriander and a bite of spice that I can't quite identify. the hops are mild, very.
This beer finishes crisp and clean and is very easy to drink. would be great on a hot day.

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.
