aw, man... this was disappointing for me. I like some of the other Leine's Brews... like the Honey Weiss, but this one let me down.
I hate to say something bad about a beer, but...
Anyway, the appearance was average for a wheat beer...good golden cloudy color. The smell was very nice, it smelled of citrus..and something else (some of you guys are saying coriander). The taste just doesn't do it for me, at all. It is overly seasoned with whatever else is in here. The mouthfeel is good as the brew feels smooth (regardless of taste). Drinkability...Sorry. This has to be the lowest I have ever rated a beer on drinkability. I am having a hard time finishing the one I just poured. And to think I bought a "sixer".
Not to slam this beer, but overall I was not overly impressed.

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.
