Thanks rabeb25!

It cost about $8.00 a sixer at P&C but it's worth it. Also, I called a local distributor and he's checking to see if he can get it in kegs and he can sell it for $23.00 a case ( Sayre PA.)


Biscuits, what town do you live in? I was just at Alligers eating nucular wings last week. My GF plays softball in Waverly every now and then ....

Not an awful beer, but not one I'd sit down and drink in mass consumption either. One is enough. Kinda tastes like one of those fruity malt beverages that smirnoff or bartles-n-james put out.

I had this the other night. The waiter described it as tasting like fruity pebbles as well. I thought he was wrong. Fruity yes..yummy yes.

I read somewhere on here that it tasted like Fruity Pebbles, and the guy was 110% right. Try it again and think about it, it tastes just like them.

I tried doing a clone of it but used Belgian Wit yeast and it wasn't even close...


Haha I was sitting at a bar in Wisconsin and said the same damn thing, my very first thought was, hmm Fruit Pebbles! As a kid I loved fruity pebbles, so in turn I love this beer, nothing complex about, just a great fruity, easy drinking beer.

I think I was the guy who said it before, and I still think the same: it tastes exactly like Fruity Pebbles. I hate to say it, but this is one of only a handful of beers in the last several years that I poured out rather than finishing.

Everyone's tastes are different, but to me, this beer sucks (and I like fruit beers). :/

Someone brought this to our beer tasting last Wednesday. First comment right off the bad was "smells like fruity pebbles". And everyone agreed 100%. The aftertaste is was too much corriander in my opinion. I won't be buying this beer anytime soon.

Leinenkugel was one of my favorite beers when I lived in Upper Michigan. Especially Leinenkuel Red (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/cool.gif) So when I saw this in my local Kroger here in GA I had to give it a shot... BLUEBERRY!!!!! It took me well over a month to finish the six pack I bought of this wine cooler/beer. I would bet a lot of money that they use a blueberry extract in this beer. It doesn't taste natural at all.

"The major brewers generally avoid using the parent company's name on the labels for their craft beers. Anheuser-Busch Cos., for example, lists Green Valley Brewing Co. as the maker of its Wild Hop Lager, an organic beer. Sunset Wheat from Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co., is owned by SABMiller PLC. Blue Moon Brewing Co. is a 100%-owned subsidiary of Molson Coors Brewing Co., but the parent company isn't mentioned on its beer labels.

Through the first eight months of this year, retail sales of craft beers made by those companies or their affiliates grew at nearly three times the rate of independent craft brews, according to market-research firm Nielsen Co."

Just picked up 2 six packs of Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat and heck yeah, it's good! Is it sold in kegs?
Anyone have a recipe that comes close to this fine brew? Thanks!

I had one with dinner tonight (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

I dont think I ever had more than one or two at a time but I do like them and will try the recipe.

I did a Honey Weizen thinking it would be somewhat on that order but didnt realize that the Weihenstephan Weizen (Wyeast Labs #3068) would make that big a difference. It is really yeastie smelling/tasting maybe even a little sour but I guess thats what a Weizen is supposed to taste like.

I suppose you could mash with Fruity Pebbles. I wonder what the extract potential would be and what's the SRM of light purple?

I have only had it on tap and really liked it. Yes it is fruity, but it falls right in line with Blue Moon. A real easy drinking bar beer.
