look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance - Poured a hazy yellow brown color with an inch of white foam. Head dissipated quickly and left a small amount of watery lacing. Little to no carbonation
Smell - Very sweet and fruity. Lemon/blueberry scent with a distinct aroma that reminds me of Fruity Pebbles breakfast cereal.
Taste - Initial bite of blueberry citrus and wheat, but transitioned into a fruity flavor (again, I can't help but thinking Fruity Pebbles cereal). Extremely crisp and bubbly for a witbier. Definitely different than most witbiers I've tried.
Mouthfeel - Medium to light body with a crisp tangy feeling on the palate.
Overall - Very unique flavored witbier that is light and crisp with a lot of ester flavors. Too fruity for me to drink regularly, but definitely a change of pace. Very drinkable. An above average witbier.

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.
