3.88/5  rDev +15.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Doesn't look like a strong wheat beer...cloudy, but not as much as Blue Moon and definitely not like Hacker-Pschorr. More of a dark yellow than anything. There's a good bit of foam and a lot of nice lacing.

Smell: Sunset Wheat emits a pleasant fruity aroma and comes across like a wheat beer here. Very little spice.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Easy to drink. Initially tastes a bit lemony and kind of flowery and then...it arrives...Fruity Pebbles! Like no other beer! I like it. Nice and smooth.

Drinkability: No problems drinking this...not nearly as strong and fruity as Berry Weiss can be for some people.

Overall: Nothing wrong with this beer. It's decent-looking. It smells fine. It tastes good and drinks well. Not bad in the autumn if you ask me.

Serving type: bottle
