United Flight 252 – COS to Dallas

Leinenliugel’s Sunshine Wheat (as the can says “the pride of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin Since 1867”)

OK, since you know this monk by now, I could not drink a Miller or Miller genuine draft, so the Leinenliugel’s was the best I could get on a United flight and it was the only one on board the plane (seriously?). Therfore, Pappa J took a chance and jumped on the only beverage a self honored monk could possibly stand.

To my surprise, the Leinenliugel’s was actually a tasty beverage! It was a lot like a Heifewiezen, citrusy smell and flavor, but not bad overall in taste. I am not sure I would have had more than a couple because it was a little fruity for me (you really cannot drink just one of any beer ∗∗∗ you need at least two to get a real flavor for the taste and character.

Overall, I would rate United a 1 out of 5 for only having one worthy beer and for that matter only one of that one worthy beverage. As for Leinenliugel’s, I cannot say I would purchase it at a store, but for a flight, it is a good beer to enjoy on a short flight.

May your next brew give you a frothy mustache!

    I recommended it on digg. The only thing that it’s missing is a bit of speed, the pictures are appearing slowly. Nevertheless thank you for this information.
