Picked this up in mixed of spring issue Witbiers - have to say I'm sorry that I included this one.
Poured from a bottle into a standard US pint. Pours a hazy gold with a think head and no lacing at all.
Smell is a little citrus and a heavy malt presence.
Taste is just odd, and not at all on point for the style. Some citrus and a heavy malt hits you right in the face with a blueberry aftertaste. Odd and to me, not pleasant.
Mouthfeel is ok, a little oily on the finish and not crisp at all.
Drinkability for me is non existent, I had my hands full getting through just the one.

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.
