From bottle to mug.
Cloudy, dark yellow, different.
Fruity, berry hint, nice.
Blueberry, that's it. Like having a beer with a blueberry muffin.
Smooth, nice drinkability.
A suprise when had, pleasant though, may consider again in the future.
May your beer be cold and your women hot.

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.
