12 oz bottle poured into a Miller Lite pint glass.

Appearance- An orangish and yellowish haze. I'm loving the haziness of this beer. Who needs to put an orange in a beer when you have the nice sediment flowing throughout.

Smell- Tons of orange with straw wheat wafting into the nostrils.

Taste- I'm getting lots of nice pale wheat that is offset with a citrus.The wheat and the seemingly whole oranges in the beer balance very well.

Mouthfeel- From the sediment of fruit you get a chewy mouthfeel with a nice light balance in the carbonation.

Overall- This is a perfect summer beer. It has the look, the taste and the lightness that compliments a hot summer day to a tee.

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.

Thanks to korguy123 for this bottle. Poured in to Founders tulip.

A - cloudy pale straw yellow with a golden glow around the edges. A small amount of white head formed on the pour.

S - Belgian yeast, cloves, citrus and bready malts.

T - Fairly light and easy-drinking overall. Some sweet bready malts, Belgian yeast and lighter clove and citrus flavours. Druy with a slight bitterness.

M - Light body with some chew. moderate carbonation.

I had one or two other Points that were worthwhile - the 6 hop IPA - but this is another disappointmment. It is not hoppy enough and it is too sweet.

There is a slightly funky aroma (and I knwo these are fresh). It looks good in the glass. The taste is just OK, and the aftertaste is actually a little better, with some nice nuance coming through.

There is something not quite right here. This brew would benefit from a piece of fruit in it. Enough said.

Poured from can into pint glass. Got a little less than a finger of fizzy white head. The body is an opaque dull gold color, with some bubbles and lots of sediment. Head quickly died, left me nothing and no lacing.

Apple, wheat and light tangerine are my first impressions. Light malt and faint hops make their way into the nose quickly.

Weak malt and slightly funky wheat begin the flavor profile. This is complimented by the taste of apples that have just gone over and ought to be thrown out and some light hops.
