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.

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.

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 don’t really like. Overall it seems kind of bold and brazen with the flavors, and heavy carbonation which don’t quite come together for me as there are too many strong influences and the subtleties, like wheat and coriander don’t really shine, for me, for you, who knows right? So it is worth a try if any of this sounds good to you.

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%.

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.

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.

This pours a dirty amber color with a short-lived fizzy white head. Nothing left; not the most attractive appearance. The aroma is wheaty, with light grain, and citrus. Lots of wheat flavor here as well, with cardboard, a little sweet citrus, and coriander spice on the back end. Slightly dry finish but also a tad empty. I wasn’t much of a fan at first, but this grew on me some.

Tasted from can into a tulip, thanks Carter! It poured an orange-amber colour, some haze but not as cloudy as most unfiltered wheat ales, with big but short-lived white foam, a little lace. I’ve been hearing a lot about all these new unfiltered, unpasteurized, live-conditioned craft beers in a can. I can get behind the concept, and I had high hopes for this one. Sadly, it tasted metallic and mass-produced, with an unpleasant sticky caramel sweetness, like Budweiser but better, noticeable orange peel and coriander, but not even as good as Blue Moon. Non-descript bitterness, medium body and carbonation, fusel alcohols and an aftertaste that won’t go away but I wish it would. Too bad.

The color of this beer is a hazy golden orange color with a medium white head that retains a small layer of white on top of the liquid, and the aroma is subtle and reminiscent of wheat and oranges. The taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, and an abrupt finish.

Bottle @ home via trade with barak316. Thanks Bill! Pours a cloudy, fairly dark orange with a cream colored head. Spicy herbal honey, a bit citrusy, somewhat grassy aroma. Somewhat tangy, sweet honey wheat, fairly dry, tangerine, somewhat bready flavor. Ok.
