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.

Nude Beach is described as being a wheat bear made with raw red wheat and yakima hops. It delivered on that description, with a strong wheat flavor and a moderate to high amount of body. There is a citrus note, but it is mild compared to many other wheat beers. The flavor added by the hops was interesting, but there was basically no hop bitterness nor hop aroma. This isnít a negative for the style, just a statement. It poured a beautiful golden color with a moderate white head and aroma was very subtle. A tiny bit more hop bitterness would be nice to help balance it, but this is a great summer beer.

This was better than I thought it would be. Something that seems so obvioulsy a marketing scheme seemed a little un trustworthy. Never the less, this beer is a-ok The beer poured a light orange with a small head. The aroma was more of grassy hops than most hefe-types. The flavor was crisp with a tiny bit of citrus and some nice spicy hops. The palate is smooth. This is pretty good for hot weather.

I didnít have high hopes for this after reading some of the other ratings, but Iím here to tell ya that I was very impressed with this brew. From a bottle, it poured a hazy yellow-orange with sizable white head. Decent lacing. Fairly subtle aroma of wheat bread and maybe a touch of mown grass. Wheaty initial taste--and wheaty all the way through. Minor hopping in the fiinish. Probably the smoothest wheat beer Iíve ever had; more body than I was expecting too. Less sharp than Capitalís Island Wheat, with more moderate carbonation as well. Very nice, and a bargain to boot.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle thanks to 17th floor. Hazy orange with small white head. Wheaty and dried-out orange aroma with some spice that is very faint. Very dry malt creaminess, orange, spice, and a little hop spice. Creamy medium body that is a little chalky. Not a poorly made beer but just nothing very exciting.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Pours a cloudy light orange with some white froth on top. Aroma is heavy on the wheat and malt with some spicy notes that come through. Flavor is heavy on the malt and with very little hop flavor to match. Sweet orange notes in the finish. Light bodied and not much that stands out in this beer. If I were going for a wheat ale this wouldnít be my first choice, but resfreshing nonetheless.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Pours a hazy dark yellow with a big fluffy white foam on top. Aroma of wheat and heavily spiced, lots of clove and orange peel. Thicker fuller mouthful, lightly carbonated, not exactly crisp but rather dull. Milky. Lots of cereal flavor and orange peel. Not terribly sweet either. Too much cereal really weighs it down, could be lighter for a summer beer.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2008
An unfiltered pour with a very short lived head and nice carbonation. Thin aroma of wheat and very weak lemon. Flavor is also wheat with some citrus and hop. Some clove finally shows up half way through the glass. There just isnít a lot going on here. Fun name, though. Fizzy mouth feel.

thegreenrooster (3154) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 26, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2008 Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a decent amount of citrus. Flavor is weaker than the aroma with some cirtus zest but not much else. Nothing really great but is does have a cool label.

Found this one bottled at the Binnyís in St. Charles, Illinois. Cloudy, medium yellow pour with a very thick white head, nice orange and lime nose, sweet and cerealy taste with some citrus. Fruity, almost artificial finish. Not bad, tastes somewhere in between the Leinieís Summer Wheat and Blue Moon.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat and mild citrus. Taste is pretty blah with some orange and lemon and a touch of wheat. The most exciting this about this brew is the name.
