3.65/5 rDev +9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Appearance: 12oz screw top bottle pours a cloudy golden yellow color. 1 finger of white head that dies down quickly.
Smell: Sweet citrus and wheat notes, with slight hops as well. This beer smells just like a white gummy fruit.
Taste: Orange, tangerine and lemon notes at first. Wheat and very slight hop flavors after that. Subtle orange aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Carbonated water feel in the mouth. Leaves the mouth feeling very clean.
Drinkability: This is a very drinkable beer, and a great summer beer. I prefer this beer to others I have tried in the category, because I feel it is smoother all around.

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.
