COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Point Nude Beach is the perfect summer pleasure. Available only during the warm months of summer, this lively and unfiltered wheat ale is well balanced using "au naturel" raw and red wheat, then delicately finished with Yakima hops. With a refreshing light flavor, Point Nude Beach is perfect while enjoying summer activities or just hanging out with friends. Clothing optional.

Hbuck72 (177) - Chickasha, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy golden color... not the best wheat beer that I have had, but not close to the worst. Aroma is of wheat and citrus. A little to light on the grain bill, and too strong on the citrus, but it would be refreshing on a hot summer day.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Typical for a wheat. Light refreshing character for both aroma and flavor. Notes of wheat, yeast, fruity citrus esters and yeast again. Nice on a hot summer day.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 28, 2009
In the bottle from HyVee CB. Pours a lightly cloudy maize gold with a medium thick white head that lasts a long time. Mixed aroma of part vegetable and part corn and part wheat. Light body and flavor with a splash of lemon tartness and a grainy husky bite to the finish. Not for me. Why not go ahead and put nude art on the label?

Drake (8779) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a pale hazy yellow with a thin head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is acrid bready malts and citrus. Taste is citrus, bread and caramel. Medium bodied.

jstraw (1936) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Hazy gold with light, fizzy white head / Nose of sour malt and lemon / Light to medium body, good malt and hop balance, with fair finish / Fresh, bright flavors of lemon, sour malt, and wheat / Very nice effort by Point, usually a cut above the main stream brewers.

flyingshoes (100) - USA - JUN 12, 2009
Sample at beer tasting. Had a light yellow appearance not too different from a pale lager. Smells of grain and a hint of hops. Taste is really pretty dull; bready, but in a cheap rather than enjoyable way. This is a small notch above standard American macro brews; I could see it being drinkable in the summer if nothing else was available, but that’s really the only time anyone would ever need it.

BeerBunker (725) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2009
$1.19 for a single at Orland Park Binnys. Pours murky orange with a fluffy white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is of malt, wheat, hops, and caramel. Taste is of light hops with notes of citrus and wheat. Not nearly as earthy as I had anticipated. Has an almost unrecognizable caramel malt backbone that is very faint in each sip. Lingering wheat flavor. Mouthfeel is way over carbonated, coming of almost like a soda. Inoffensive to the pallate, but not overly enjoyable. Dissapointing.

fidelis83 (2000) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Pours a milky light gold with a 1-2 finger creamy white head that has pretty poor retention, but seems to hold at a thin skim. Aroma is wheat, sourdough, lemon peel, hints of planty and citrus hops. Flavor is heavy on yeasty bread dough, a little pepper, lemon and orange zests, a touch of lime and some spices. Finish is bread and spices. Palate is thin and dusty with a good amount of carbonation. Just your average wheat ale, though a little hoppier than many, which is nice but not really enough to save it.

Cornfield (5521) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Single bottle buy from the Binny’s in Orland Park, IL: It poured a hazy pale straw body with a short head. The aroma was bready with a touch of Wheaties. It had an added touch of tart citrus in the flavor with a touch of zest at the end. Okay, but there’s lots of better Summer drinks... and they don’t have stupid names.

RSRIZZO (1870) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2009
(Bottle courtesy of Headbanger) - Color is a hazy yellow with a touch of orange. Carbonation is good with a thin tight head. Aroma of grain and honey. Taste is creamy and sweet. Starting with a light body it goes down easy with a creamy feel. Finish is sweet with flavors of bread, honey, a touch of citrus and hint of coriander. After taste is clean leaving you with a fresh feel. Overall this is a good wheat, nice flavor, well balanced and refreshing. This one is much better then there Horizon Wheat.
