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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
$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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
