Found this beer here in Michigan in May. Don't recall seeing it before but because I've had Other point beers in the past and enjoyed them overall, especially since the point beers are not expensive. Nude Beach has been my go to beer this summer. It reminds me of German Weissbiers and is very drinkable. It's a bit cloudy with a good head and smells very fresh. Not bitter with a nice full mouth experience. Can't say enough good about this beer. Just hope they keep making it and don't change a thing.

Bought this as a single bottle at the Liquor Barn in Florence NJ . Pours great , poured into a pint glass.

This beer pours a cloudy pale orange color. The head is an inch and a half in height, and recedes slowly into a quarter inch cap of white foam. The aroma is lemon zest, tangy wheat, and a hint of clove. It is a lot more aromatic than more American style wheat beers, and I like that. The taste is just as strong as the aroma. There is lots of lemon, lots of wheat, and again a hint of clove. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied with fairly high carbonation which is alright for the style. Overall, this is a very nice surprise from Stevens Point Brewery. Nice to see a good micro come out of Wisconsin

A: Cloudy, golden orange with a decent finger of white head that recedes quickly.

S: Definite yeast and zesty lemon. Some wheat grain and sweet malts.

T&M: Wheaty, lemony flavor. Crisp and smooth with a mildly sweet malty taste that gives an overall complex flavor. Light bodied.

For a summer wheat, this is really great. Very drinkable.

A: Poured into tulip glass, aggressive pour produced big puffy head, laid down to about a 1/4 inch after a few minutes. Cloudy, pale gold.

S: Big wheat, spice, malty.

T: Wow. I like this style, but, there is something different here. Big time wheat, lemon/lime, spices, apples. Strong malt presence also. Kinda, umm, "complex" for a summer wheat beer. I like it!!

M/D: Perfect. Great carbonation, extremly refreshing, clean, tasty. What more can you ask. I tried it very cold, about 35 deg, and again at about 45-50 deg. Both times, it worked. Obviously, the warmer temp opened up the flavors a bit, but, I preferred it cold. It works great. Cheers to the guys at Point, the Maibock, Nude Beach, and Horizon have been very good!

I was given a bottle of this brew in a 12 beer exchange with a housemate from college during our recent 10 year reunion.

I am pouring at cellar temp into a weizen glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden hue with some streams of carbonation rising to the surface. A bleached white head foams up .5 cm and fades rapidly to a thin edge layer.
Aroma is grainy malt with some spicy yeast notes maybe cloves and definitely some lemony hints.
Appealing nose very mild but appealing nonetheless.
First sip reveals a very fizzy and tingly carbonation. Body is light but doesnt have a watery texture to it which is nice.
Carbonation leaves a strong tingle on my tongue after each sip.
the flavor is fairly mild overall, but I do detect grainy malt, some doughy yeast, a bit of that wheat twang, and again a hint of lemon. The finish is fairly sweet and crisp. This would be a great beer on a hot day. I am enjoying it and the drinkability is high with no ABV hints and light body.
Nice beer.

Presentation: It was poured into from a 12oz can into a Weizen glass. The can offers no freshness date, abv or disruption.

Appearance: The body is hazy and has a nice orange/yellow glow in the glass. On top it keeps a small cap of white foam till the end which started off as a three finger tall covering. Lacing is slick and slides right down the glass as I drink.

Smell: In the nose I pick up notes of the wheat malt with some nice citrus and spicy earth yeast.

Taste/Palate: On the tongue I get hints of the classic banana and clove with some nice semi-sweet wheat and lemony citrus. The palate is right on with a nice average medium body and active carbonation.

Notes: This is a very solid American made German Hefeweizen.

Nose is a bit of lemon, citrus....perhaps a hint of orange. It's pretty good.

Appearance is much as you'd expect...blonde, cloudy. Standard for a wheat.

The taste is interesting. The upfront and body of the beer is of lemon for the most part. This is the predominant taste. However, on the finish, a honey-like sweetness creeps over the tongue ...which, in my opinion, is an interesting but delicious finish to the beer. After the swallow, a fair amount of wheat becomes noticeable as well.

All in all, it's a great quaffable brew. As far as summer beers go, I think this is on the mark and I enjoyed it.

Chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and used a pilsner glass. Pours a hazy orange/yellow with a very small white head that doesn't last long at all, but leaves some lacing when sipped. The aroma is of sweet grains with a hint of caramel and vanilla. Very nice. The taste is of sweet wheat with a touch of honey and caramel. Reminds me a little of the "Paradise Beach Ale" that is ONLY served at "Cheeseburger in Paradise". Very smooth with a very slight dry finish on the end. Overall really like this one.
