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.

Patrickctenchi (4604) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Can: Pours clear gold, frothy white head. Wheat malt, orange aroma. Tart, soft and dusty orange flavour... Taste is OK...but a little weak.

malrubius (2038) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle from Save On. Pale coudy caramel color with small head. Caramel/toffee/honey bready aroma. Medium sweet caramel apple with mild fruity wheat tang and slick oily caramel finish. Medium body. THis is probably the worst style of beer IMHO. Give me a well-made pale lager over this any time.

shrubber85 (8755) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Can. Orange, coriander, and wheat malt aroma. Golden yellow with nice head. Sweet orange, coriander, wheat malt and light herbal flavor. A good summer beer.

Orange aroma, similar to Oberon. Very mild but tasty. Very good. Citrus taste but not overpowering. Delicious.

Its got a great golden color. Light bodied and smooth. Some citrus and orange notes. Refreshing wheat ale for the summer.

DuffMan (7622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
on tap @ Bluebeard -- cloudy medium gold, wheaty and orange aroma, a little soapy, wheat and orange peel flavours, low bitterness, medium sweetness. Not getting the honey.

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.

warhawk91 (302) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2014
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.

crossovert (8852) - Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
Unfortuneately extremely generic wheat ale, not really a witbier, i guess in the league of a brooklyn summer but not as nice.

TheBear11D (361) - Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2014
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
