A - One and a half inch head is off white, leaves no lacing or any retention to speak of. Pour is a nice cloudy honey with mild effervescence.
S - Very fragrant, you can smell this beer as soon as you start pouring. Strong citrus, pineapple, mild yeast, and some pomegranate.
T - Fresh oranges, pineapple, hints of passion fruit, some light sweet malts, and a small flowery hop presence. Aftertaste is brief and fruity.
M - Subdued carbonation gives it a decent weight. Kind of like drinking carbonated fruit nectar.
D - Very crisp and pleasing, this beer tastes like the tropics.

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.
