Cloudy yellow with a thin head of tiny white boubles. Aroma is strange but not altogether offputting mix of lemon zest and peptobismal. This beer is light bodied and very high in astringincy with a thin and artifical citrus flavor that is seriously like drinking the yellow Fruit Loops. Honestly I'm kinda into this, but it is very funky, and near the bottom of my list for the style and the brewery. Refreshing though.

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.

Love this beer. I'm a big fan of all of Leinenkugel's seasonals though. When smelling and tasting the sunset wheat, it resembles fruit loops in my opinion. I could easily drink a six pack of this in a short period of time, and I have. Definitely give this a try if you like fruity tasting beers.
