A- Dark hazy straw, small white head.
A- Very fruit smell (blueberries?), slight hint of citrus.
T- Very similar to the aroma. Very fruity taste. Leaves an orange citrus after
M- Light body. Very smooth/creamy. High carbonation.
D- Incredibly refreshing. I remember my first experience with this beer, I loved it. I couldn't put my finger on the fruit at first. I later heard someone refer to it as dryhopping fruity pebbles. That ruined my image of this beer, though I'm sure it was meant to be more of a blueberry taste than of fruity pebbles. If you like more fruit tasting beers give this a try or any other Leinenkugel offering.

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.
