Pours almost neon yellow, a little unsettling and fake-looking actually. No head, no lacing. Starting to seem typical of Leinenkugel's beers.
Smell.. Overpowering blueberry, nothing else. Like fruity pebbles. Very, very fake smelling. Not at all enticing, almost gross. Beer shouldn't smell like this.
Taste is a bit better, some lemon, cilantro, a touch of grapefruit. Very sweet, no real wheat taste here to speak of. This beer unsettles me partly due to Leinenkugel's reputation, but also because of it's peculiar aroma.
The carbonation is somewhat laid back compared to the other brews of theirs that I've tried, and it's far more drinkable.
This won't be one that I try again. This is more of a malt beverage than anything else, almost a soft drink.

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.
