Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat.

Tried it about two years ago, couldn't even finish the bottle, which is kind of rare for me. And it wasn't skunked. My friend described it..."take bud light, throw in some fruit loops, and strain it out"...there's your sunset wheat. Everyone thought it was disgusting. I black-listed Leinenkugel for over a year until I decided to give them another shot and had their amber, which wasn't bad. One thing's for sure, I'll always remember the Sunset Wheat.

I guess its all a matter of taste....I enjoy the Sunset Wheat on a hot summer night...although it is definitely not a beer that you can drink several bottles of...at least not for me. After about two, the sweetness is too much for me. My wife loves Sunset and summer Shandy (I'm not a fan of the Shandy at all).

there was actually a wide array of tastes that night at my place...from hardcore IPA drinkers (i used to be one) to casual drinkers with good taste to "girls"...all thought it was nasty crap haha...

obviously there are people who like it because i see it everywhere...and my friend's friend just got a kegerator and filled it with sunset wheat lol

I don't mind it for a hot summer day. It's not your thing if you preffer IPA's and such. But definetly way better then budweiser.

I actually dig this beer on tap, but I've never had it in the bottle. The ladies LOVE this beer for whatever reason.

That's a subjective statement and I respect your thoughts. That said it's not my favorite Lienie's. Creamy Dark and Big Butt Dopple Bock are great - their Red is pretty good to, but more than four bottles in an evening and I've got a headache the next day.

Well, Dick Leinenkugel just withdrew his bid for Senate in Wisconsin, so he'll have more time to work on his beer.
