Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat ....

Tonight I will have a Sunset Wheat from Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company.  4.9% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.

Sunset Wheat poured with a thin, off white head.  Beer color is an orange-ish yellow, and very hazy.  The aroma has citrus, fruit, wheat and floral.  The taste is more of the same, starting out with a real fruity/floral note that is sweet, then fading to malts, wheat and a little spice.  Fairly high carbonation.  Dry finish.  The aftertaste leaves your mouth a little dry, with some spice and fruit.  The overall fruit/floral quality is almost overpowering (distracting?), as if something was added to the beer, but I can't see on the web site where anything was added besides coriander.  Interesting, but not really to my taste.
