A- Cloudy yellow with no head after it was placed in front of me.
S- Very tart citrus, like grapefruit, with lemon and coriander. I have smelled this before in diet soft drink. Fresca anyone.
T&M- Grainy wheat but doesn't coat the palate. Very sweat and fizzy. Grapefruit with lemon and spicy coriander. Very juicy and not very beery. Very slick. This is more Fresca than beer.
D- I could barely finish this one. I love wheat ales but this just about killed me. My mom would love this.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
