A - Murky and bubbly. Not what I expected but pretty good for the price.
S - Very strange herbal smell, with a light hop and maltiness
T - The herbal note returns and is a bit strong, an orange slice lightens the taste and rounds it out
M - Little too much carbonation, bit thin for a witbier
D - The strong herbal notes make it hard to drink fast or more than one. Interesting for any advocate to try.
Overall, good but probably wont buy again. I'd spend the extra to get that cleaner taste.

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.
