This beer is quite unique from all of the other beers that I have had. Upon drinking this beer the first thing I thought about was Trix Cereal. The beer didn't taste like beer in trix, but the acutal beer tasted like Trix. It was really fruity. So after drinking this I recommended that my friends get a keg of it for everyone to drink. This was great because even the girls at the party could easily drink it.
I really recommend this beer if you want to try something different and fruity.

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.
