COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Arcadia Whitsun is a modern interpretation of a mid-19th century English spring and summer festival ale. It is light golden in color with a rich, creamy head, full bodied and has a lightly toasted caramel flavor. The addition of Michigan star thistle honey contributes a uniquely smooth drinkability to this unfiltered wheat ale.

Hazy dark golden liquid. Cream colored dense head with some nice lace. Sweet wheat and mild orange aroma. Nearly too clean and soft on the nose. Crisp lagerlike start, which is quickly taken back by a yeast, orange and dry spice. Really quick change of pace there. Dry honey finish. An interesting cross between an american wheat and a belgian wit. A touch lighter on the palate and this is a great summer brew.

light aroma a bit on the sour side. Deep golden color is inviting, bitter aftertaste hangs on a little to long.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Great aroma of sweet wheat and sour hops with all the spice backing it up. Head is tremendous with great lacing. One of the darkest wheats I’ve seen with a light amber color and a near pale ale mystic to the flavor that is more in the hops than in the malt. It goes down very smooth with a clean crisp palate. Lemon, corriander and butterscotch with light candy sugar but nothing overbearing. A well crafted beverage.

hershiser2 (1208) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Medium hazy golden-orange, with a soft head. Smells wheaty and apricotty. Extra bitter bite- snazzy - slight fruit with a lot of wheat. A decent brew, but nothing mindblowing.

jtw (1085) - farmington, Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2004
tiny head on a hazy light amber body. citrusy spicy and hoppy nose, and a surprisingly hoppy flavor for an american wheat. yeasty and malty too, but not much complexity, and a clean short finish. nothing too special but definitely drinkable!

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2004
Poured clear amber with a weak white head. Grapefruit in the nose. Some carbonation in its watery body. Decent but unremarkable flavor. Some at the tasting put it on a par with or superior to Bells Oberon. I do not agree. Bells is much better.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2004
Fairly nice wheat ale with a sweet and yeasty aroma. Flavor is light and a bit vague. Surprisingly, the head retention is poor. If i lived in Battle Creek, i could be happy with Arcadia.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2004
Light gold with a slight orange influence in the color. Creamy white head and nice lacing. The aroma contains a sweet malt smell that hints of a rich taste. The flavor was somewhat tangy with a little bit of bitterness.
