They should have honored Caitlyn by putting her portrait on the first can of the beer, that's all we're sayin'.

If you can't make fun of the obvious in this day and age, then you can just move to Washington and commit legal, well you know.....

+1.  I didn't see it as political anyway, just a silly pop culture reference.

I only meant it as a pop culture reference as well. I mean, as an 8 year old child I would have never expected Bruce to turn into Caitlyn. That was all I was saying. It is completely strange looking back through that child's eyes. I meant no political implications nor was I making any reference regarding anyone's personal gender choices.

Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat is essentially liquid Fruity Pebbles, so this isn't too big of a jump. Certainly can't taste much worse...

Agreed. it probably tastes just fine...just a weird brand leap IMO. 

Can't you see the kid who eats Wheaties seeing this beer and saying, "mom look. Wheaties in a can! Can we get some?? Please please please please...."

Ken nailed it. The odd thing is the co-branding. I don't get it. I'm sure the anti-alcohol organizations will argue that it is marketed towards children.

Some folks have been offended and this could be considered political in nature (which is against forum policy) so I apologize since I started it but I appreciate if we took the talk in a different direction. Thanks.
I don't think anyone intended to offend and I'm not easily offended. Rather than get political I would just say this is a good opportunity to think about how we say things on this forum. Here's how I think of it: there are thousands of people reading this forum so although we might think we're in a room full of white straight guys odds are there are some who read this forum who are gay, trans, people of color and of course we know there are a few women. So I don't say anything that could be hurtful to a group of people even if the intention is not to harm. I know some would say that's PC but I think that line is something people hide behind, to me its just treating people how I like to be treated: with respect and dignity.
That being said I'm not sure that beer deserves any respect or dignity but I would love to take a sip and see.
