In the past, I've always been impressed with these beers. Really good.
The foam was wheat almost white in color, thick, 1 finger length, smooth and lacey. The color was a very hazy honey with light amber highlights - looked like honey in a glass. The smell was sweet, aromatic, honey highlights, hints of orange and wheat and a nice ginger/almond undertone. The first main taste was of orange and ginger with wheat and an undertone of sharp vanilla. Mouthfeel - medium-bodied and spicey. Drinkability - has a wonderfull complex aroma. Had a good time with this beer.

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.
