Pours a beautiful golden color. Fairly murky. Thick, frothy head. Lots of carbonation in the beer. There isn't a lot of nose to this beer. There's some of the wheat aroma to it, but it's muted. The beer tastes like a standard wheat beer. The banana fee is present. You get some of the carbonation in the feel also. Delicious wheat beer, and I'd gladly have my friend get more the next time he's in the UP.

12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Two fingers of froth slowly drops to some sticky lacing. Spicy wheat, earthy hops, nutty yeast, and bready malt make for a pleasing aroma. Deep crispness, smooth medium body. Fluffy maltiness, slightly chewy with rustic bready overtones. Ample hopping with a very well balanced bitterness. Some spicy woody hop flavor and nutty yeast flavors in the middle. Refreshing finish that makes me want to quaff it again and again.

Had the Bum's Beach Wheat off the taproom tap into a fluted tulip

A- Light golden orange hue with an amber heart, a 1/2 finger sea foam head that settled to a sticky lacing.

S- Apricot, oranges, moms fresh baked bread

T- A tangerine wheat creamsicle with a nice slight hop finish to keep it crisp.

M- Perfect carbonation with a creamy pleasant balance.

O- Get ready for spring, this beer gives you every reason to enjoy the sun
