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.

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.

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 thatís really the only time anyone would ever need it.

BeerBunker (709) - 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 (1932) - 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 (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Single bottle buy from the Binnyís 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 thereís lots of better Summer drinks... and they donít have stupid names.

RSRIZZO (1852) - 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.

Point Nude Beach is a middle of the road wheat Ale. There is nothing to make it stand out. I have had much better and much worse. Would drink again, but will not go out of my way to get it.

hopscotch (9047) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2009
Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Grainy, biscuity nose with dabs of honey and cornmeal. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and bristly carbonation. Almost perfectly-balanced, but bland and boring - practically nondescript. Short, crisp, watery finish. Thanks go out to headbanger for shipping this bottle to me!

Headbanger (3276) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2009 12oz bottle-(Binnyís Naperville)-Pours a slightly cloudy orangish yellow with a small white covering for a head. Aroma of orange, yeast, and a little hops. Taste of orange and citrus with a dry finish. This light bodied brew is really light and goes down fairly easy. Why do you need two wheat beers as well as a Belgian Wit? Get a new summer seasonal and drinking this will get no ones clothes off.
