A - Translucent, cloudy yellowish-amber sunburst color. Highly carbonated. Produced two finger head . Very attractive.
S - Pleasenty overpowering. Citrus and floral came out of the bottle swinging the second the cap was removed.
T - Lienkugels is definatly in a class all of it's own. Honestly, I find it very sweet. This, of course, is a double edged sword as far as I'm concerned. Sometimes I enjoy it, and sometimes I don't. It is an odd beer; one that doesn't really fit in anywhere, leaving it very hard to compare with anything else I've tried. With that said, I consider the taste, especially it's citrus character, of this beer appealing.
M - Lingering. Though, the mouthfeel of this beer has an odd charima about it.
D - Once again, dependent on my mood. All in all, I couldn't see drinking more than a couple of these at one siting. However, if I am in the mood for it, the experience is always positive.
Lienkugels is a very odd beer. After years of drinking it, I still don't know exactly where I stand with it. Though, as far as witbiers are concerned, I would choose this beer over many. It strange, I have a definate love/hate relationship with this beer that is rather inexplicable. All in all, if you have never tried this beer before, you must. I don't often say that, but its the truth.

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.
