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.

Bif (1418) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 21, 2014
On tap. Served a hazy copper color with a decent head with some lacing. Aroma of orange and citrus with grainin the background. Taste of citrus and bit of malt sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, with a crisp and clean feel. Refreshing beer that is good for a couple.

fattybladdy (537) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle. A nice looking beer, orangey amber in color, bright white head. The nose is wheat, yeast and citrus. Taste of wheat and orange, canít say Iím a fan.

rumproasts (2863) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2013
bottle. Light amber with one finger head. Tastes like an Oberon knockoff. Wheat and a little bit of spice. As wheat beers go, this isnít bad.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear orangish amber body with a very fast disappearing off-white head. The nose is quite sweet with a distinct honey note and a minimal coriander spicing. The flavor is quite sweet as well, lots of honey, caramel, some dark wheat. The coriander is pretty well restrained, but comes out a bit on the finish after the sweetness lets up. Rather heavy and a bit sticky with moderate fizzy carbonation. Kind of a weird beer, itís not a Wit, itís not an American Wheat, itís nothing in particular.

bigtaster (551) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Light orange color, white head. Nose has mostly spices some yeast. A lot of carbonation, light on the palate, sweet with some orange and other spices. Refreshing beer, great once and a while.

Great lawower beer. Slight grassy. Rated this with another app and BeerBuddy unfortunately won't let me import comments.

chanfoli (15) - Kentucky, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Pours a moderately cloudy orange-yellow. A low to medium creamy white head is formed and fades quickly to a thin and sparse film of foam. Aroma is light yeast, orange and wheat malt. In the flavor I get tart, spicy orange peel with some sweetness as the bite of full carbonation sinks its teeth into my tongue and cheeks. The body is medium but the suspended particles which make this a hazy to cloudy brew also coat the tongue and make it seem fuller. The higher carbonation counters this nicely. I am getting some mineral or sulfur thing immediately after swallowing that I donít really like. Overall it seems kind of bold and brazen with the flavors, and heavy carbonation which donít quite come together for me as there are too many strong influences and the subtleties, like wheat and coriander donít really shine, for me, for you, who knows right? So it is worth a try if any of this sounds good to you.

jcos (1525) - Maryland, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle on July 18th, 2013.

Appearance: Pours an orange cloud, looks like some yeast floating around inside.
Aroma: Aroma of orange, faint wheat.
Taste: Light wheat, orange, hint of sourness(not intended).
Palate:Light.

Summary: Nothing real exciting, does a solid job for a wheat ale but prefer other options. Had no idea it was 6.8%.

drdisque (520) - Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2013
From a can poured in a tulip. Orange cloudy pour. Flavor is wheatey citrus with moderate hoppiness and creaminess. An obvious oberon imitator but probably a bit creamier and more "Belgian" in flavor. Not bad.

Fredis23 (481) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Muddy Dark Orange, Foamy Head, Decent Lacing. As it warms up, faint banana and clove aroma comes out. Taste is wheat, yeast. Just average brew, just OK for me.
