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.

minimal head, white foam, cloudy, amber, orange appearance. Bread, floral, citrus, dough, earthy aromas. medium sweetness, lightly bitter taste. medium body, oily feel, creamy, average carbonation, long finish. Had this one out of a can! Not a bad beer. Arcadia’s version of Oberon (yes yes I know they are different). Almost a pop art feel.

Bottle. Pour is true to the style, golden orange, unfiltered but with a fast fading head. Smell is orange and spice with some dankness to it. Like overripe bananas maybe. Taste has that same funkiness to it, like something's slightly off. I get the orange and the wheat but thus other flavor that I can't identify dominates.

Unfortuneately extremely generic wheat ale, not really a witbier, i guess in the league of a brooklyn summer but not as nice.

Whitsun pours a mostly cloudy with a sunset orange yellow color with creamy off-white head that lasts decently. The aroma is somewhat faint, but there's a roasty caramel and orange with honey. The flavor is caramel with honey and toasted bread. Overall this is a fairly average beer, but it's not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy light brown/orange with a small white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is mostly coriander with some orange. Flavor is a smooth blend of sweet orange, coriander, and wheat. This does have a light body feel, but it is also crisp and refreshing. I thought this was a rather tasty beer that I would gladly pick up again.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2014
$4 bottle from Buffalo Wild Wings in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. Appearance: Orange sort of color with a nice two finger head on it. I don’t recall the clarity on it, since I wasn’t paying too much attention. Decent lacing. Pours pretty nicely. Smell: Refreshing. Quite a bit of citrus, with some slight hoppiness. Taste/feel: Also refreshing, with plenty of citrus and grain. Reasonably high carbonation to help with that, yes, I’m using the word again, refreshing flavor/feel. There’s a solid amount of orange and orange peel sort of oil/bitterness in this brew, but yet it never becomes overwhelming. Surprised the alcohol is 6.2%, as it feels like an even 5%, but what’s an extra percent? Anyway, I’d gladly have another.

Pretty average beer but it has to be said that it is pretty refreshing. Nice on a hot day.

Had a glass on tap as part of a flight at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor. Delicious, refreshing but with some body.

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.

Bottle. A nice looking beer, orangey amber in color, bright white head. The nose is wheat, yeast and citrus. Taste of wheat and orange, can’t say I’m a fan.
