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.

(bottle shared by Skyview) Poured gold with a white head. Aroma was really weird and smelled like lemon was mixed with stale grain. The taste was lightly sweet, but that was about it. This subdued flavor yielded to grain finish.

incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Nice clean crisp taste. Not much in the way of wheat though. A little grassiness, but leaned more towards a slightly amped up lager. Not sure how this differs from a hefe, as some of the bananna/clove aspects where there, same as a hefe would be. Tasty summer bump for sure.

EithCubes (4818) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Bottle. Zesty wheat nose with pepper and a bit of stale funk. Green-tinged yellow body with a creamy white head. Sweetish taste is lightly wheaty and bright, the dry wheat becomes much more pronounced in the aftertaste. A nice touch of indeterminate exotic fruit, either mango or guava or kiwi. Medium creamy body with just enough effervescence. I warmed to this after a bit.

Pick up a six pack at the brewery gift shop in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Pours a semi hazy golden pale brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film. Aroma of creamed corn with some wheat character and some grassy hops. Taste is light to medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of corn and wheat malt, some grassy hops and a touch of banana. Finish is semi-sweet with a corn and banana aftertaste. It’s an okay beer for the summer.

vyvvy (3951) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Pours hazy orange with a large light beige head. The aroma has wheat with a citrus twang, minor spice and a hint of bananas. Medium / thin body with a papery feel and underscored fizzy carbonation. The flavor starts off bland for a wheat and is quite dry as well. The finish has lots of phenolic spice and some lemony citrus. This is not bad at all, but nothing I’ll feel the need to revisit.

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 isn’t 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.
