COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of a mid-19th century English Festival Ale, this unfiltered wheat beer displays a translucent orange color topped with a creamy, white head. Wheat enhances the mouthfeel of the beer and produces pleasant bread-like notes while Michigan honey provides a caramelized sweetness in the flavor profile. This beer is spiced with orange peel and coriander and small amounts of three hop varieties pleasantly counterbalances the sweetness.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2008 Lots of bready, toasted malts in the nose. The body is crisp and refreshing, hinting on dough, caramel, apricot and vanilla bean. The finish is drawn out, dry and fuity. Yet another good brew from Aracadia.

A solid orange color, under a fine, whitish head, with numerous micro, and some not so-micro-scopic "floaties" zipping about...yikes! Aroma: odd. fruity, peach and nectarine, apricot, but it feels a touch plastic, rubbery...caramelly...reminds me of certain NW hops, but put to strange use... something ill-fitting in this nose. Enough, letís taste... That plastic/rubber thing I canít put my finger on is there again, in the taste...might be the yeast they use, but it dominates the texture of this brew. Full-bodied, big -time fruit, mucho maltiness, not much from hops, an easy traveller over the esophagus...but lacks something...drinks easy, for sure, but misses ...I donít know...character? Thatís what Iíll call it... not bad, actually, just needs some ZING! to make me, or anyone with taste, stand up and salute. As it is, it ainít happeniní...

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - APR 24, 2005
Tap: dark cloudy orange with big white head. Very spicy yeast aroma and flavor. A little honey and orange, but mostly pepper. Finishes spicy sweet. Little surprised by the score. This has always been about as good as their competitorsí summer wheat, just doesnít have the same following.

jaymobrown (1708) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2005
Lacy off white head. Light, airy, grapefruit, bit oí spice nose. Orange, lemon flavors -- really subtle, delicate. More of a Belgian wit. Some hops, but no noticable caramel, malt, or wheat flavors.

Pailhead (5330) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is rather sweet with lots of wheat, spices, and light citrus. Pours a very cloudy dark orange with a white head that diminishes somewhat quickly. Sweet up front with light honey and citrus and a pretty big spicey finish.

argo0 (11856) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 31, 2005
(I suspect this is an old bottle, but there is no date on it) Small off white head atop hazed amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, toffee, light orange. Taste is moderately sweet, toffee, some earthy, orange, light lemon. Medium body, some acidity. Not bad, but certainly not what I was expecting from an American Wheat.

super orangey with hints of lemon and yeast in the aroma, hazy gold, nice wheaty body with slight yeastiness and lots of orange flavors

Ok, so Iíve been on a wheat kick as of late. This is a nice one, not as flavorful as Iíve had recently, but still damn good.

sfontain (830) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2004
My first rating of a beer drunk from my new snifter... Orange with nearly no head. Immediately following the pour there are hints of banana and cloves; after sitting, there is mostly citrus and wheat. Flavor is sugary sweet, quite wheaty, with a lightly bitter finish. A bit syrupy.

SLight citrus aroma, good citrus flavor throughout. Ever so slight bite at the end. Quite an enjoyable wheat.
