Beer Review: Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat

Today a beer my friend Craig describes as “mysterious.”

Beer: Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat
Brewer: The Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company
Source: 12 oz. bottle
Rating: ** (6.3 of 10)

Comments:  I first encountered Leinenkugel’s at Miller Field (ironically) in Milwaukee.  I enjoyed being able to have a decent beer for a reasonable price at a ballpark (reasonable being a relative thing).  Opening the bottle is the worst part of this beer because I am greeted with a sickly-sweet aroma.  The beer pours out a rich, cloudy amber. Luckily it doesn’t taste as sweet as it smells, it’s actually a bit bitter once it reaches the back of the tongue, but it’s still rather fruity.    Overall it is an okay but not great beer, but perhaps you’ll find some mystery in it.

  1. Picked up my first 6 of these and I am impressed. I’m just 21 and really I can’t stand drinking the average Budweisers and the like (only unless I’m “out” with the boys)… I had tried Blue Moon and this kinda reminded me of that, only it’s about 10 times better. Much more of a smooth and clean taste. Not hard to drink at all… I could probably drink one after the other if I wasn’t a cheap college student.
