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.

A wheat brew that is average. Not the greatest, but not the worst either. Smooth with a golden color. Distinctive citrus flavor.

czar (4261) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
pours hazy if not cloudy golden orange with a nice orange cap, some retention and lacing. doughy caramel, sweetish spicy cereals, phenols, fruitiness - oranges, wheat spiciness, bitter herbs and other spices - dill upfront, shy coriander in this miscellaneous spicy concoction, very lightly tart small fruits. moderately low carbonation, light body, slightly astringent and assertive herbal-grassy-very peppery but also citrusy finish.

EithCubes (4813) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle. Nose is extremely sweet and candyish, honeyed, orange, citric; pours cloudy golden with extremely heavy carbonation and a fizzy cola head. Taste is actually not all that sweet, even off-dry; some earthy and anise-leaning character (I’d say it’s a phenol) with some strong-starting alcohol, orange jam, strong honey. Wheat, minerals, spice, very light caramel. Medium-full body, sting of tartness and light burn on the tongue, everywhere an assault. I like the bready bit toward the end, but that’s also washed out a bit by the phenols. Actually really much more fun to drink than I’ve let on, has some rich spirit undertones and stands up against other foods and drinks.

Light. Refreshing. Smooth. Sweet. Slightly wheaty with a bit of citrus. A malty finish.

Draft. Pours an orange color. Aroma and taste are citrus and wheat. Light bodied and quite refreshing.

ARH (369) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
On tap poured into a shaker. Aromas of orange, cereal and wheat, and a light bit of clove. The appearance is a cloudy orange body with a very thin white ring that doesn’t leave any lace. The beer is a medium sweet with a light bitter. It has a flat, light, creamy carbonation with a medium body and a light, slick texture. A strong spicy (clove) note comes through in the finish with a bit of an orange peel. The aftertaste is a dry spicy note. I’m a bit suspicious that they may have poured me a Blue Moon, but I have no proof.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Copper pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is almost like a honey mead. flavor is mostly honey with some orange peel and other citrus notes. Some light spice towards the finish honey fades quickly. Interesting take on the style.

ectuohy27 (570) - ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2014
High-quality, dense, and nicely layered, but too much hops (and too little of the "lightly toasted caramel"), to say the least.

Can shared. Pours a medium almost unfiltered orange color with white head. Nice wheat and malt aroma with a touch of citrus. The flavor is wheat and orange. Decent flavor and body. Overall pretty decent. Great summer beer.

MadRobin (1882) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Poured from 12 oz. bottle in Manistique, VA. Clear, bright amber-orange with a small ivory head and very good lacing. Aroma of caramel, orange, wheat, coriander, yeast and lemon. Taste of coriander, orange, wheat, caramel, mild floral hops and yeast with a lemony finish. Medium/light body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
