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.

Presentation: It was poured into from a 12oz can into a Weizen glass. The can offers no freshness date, abv or disruption. Appearance: The body is hazy and has a nice orange/yellow glow in the glass. On top it keeps a small cap of white foam till the end which started off as a three finger tall covering. Lacing is slick and slides right down the glass as I drink. Smell: In the nose I pick up notes of the wheat malt with some nice citrus and spicy earth yeast. Taste/Palate: On the tongue I get hints of the classic banana and clove with some nice semi-sweet wheat and lemony citrus. The palate is right on with a nice average medium body and active carbonation. Notes: This is a very solid American Wheat Ale/German Hefeweizen.

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.

Point Nude Beach has a medium, cream-colored head and a very cloudy orange-gold color. Aroma is slight, but I think I picked up some orange smell. The taste is very nice, with a good barley-hop balance; the hops come through on the back end of the sip. Some citrus is definitely present. Mouth-feel is light and watery. Nude Beach finishes wet and thirst-quenching. Overall, this is an outstanding summer wheat ale. RJt

Very nice slightly murky yellow color. Some lemony citrus aroma. Tastes light and sort of lemony. The aftertaste is, what else, lemony and flavorful that lingers for a little while. This is a pleasant beer that will go down easy and refreshing during the summer months, but not as heavy as some of the other seasonals.

Bottle to pint. Summery nose and appearance. Nice mouthfeel. Some sweetness and wheat in the taste. Clean finish. Good opening beer to a night out.

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.

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.

Clear golden amber color. Light one-finger head that has good retention but minimal lacing. Wheat. Spice. Popcorn. Phenols. Slight sweet citrus notes. Tangy wheat notes and a nice level of malt. Slight sour citrus flavors. Sweet bread notes. Light and creamy in the mouth. Refreshing. A very drinkable, very satisfying summer brew.
