COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of a mid-19th century English Festival Ale, this unfiltered wheat beer displays a translucent orange color topped with a creamy, white head. Wheat enhances the mouthfeel of the beer and produces pleasant bread-like notes while Michigan honey provides a caramelized sweetness in the flavor profile. This beer is spiced with orange peel and coriander and small amounts of three hop varieties pleasantly counterbalances the sweetness.

A very under rated beer in my opinion. It is a great summer time beer, especially in a can!

Sometimes, I just disagree with ratebeer and critics in general. I would drink one of these or an Oberon everyday of the summer, and for me because I don’t drink beer super often if I would turn to this regularly that matters. The flavor and aromas are just really pleasant. It’s a really nice beer for me.

Simpely the best summer beer brewed in Michigan at this moment, to bad it's all gone till next spring. I still have a couple bottles to get me thru. Had it at the brewery in June and the hops,color,aroma and finish blew me away!!

Orange aroma, similar to Oberon. Very mild but tasty. Very good. Citrus taste but not overpowering. Delicious.

Here in Michigan, we are blessed with two fine summer beers. Bell's Oberon and Arcadia's Whitsun. This beer is flat out, good. There is a light citrus taste with malt sweetness to it. It is unlike any wheat I've had before. There are hops, but they are there for balance, not for show. A very easy to drink beer and due to that I am giving it a '5' in the 'Mouthfeel' category as it just feels and tastes right. While Oberon is one of my all-time favorites and a great summer beer, I can honestly say Whitsun ranks right up there. A great summer beer.

One of the first really warm and sunny days this spring in Michigan make me reach for the Whitsun. Whitsun is gold to copper in color and hazy. Peaches and wheat aromas are present along with a faint honey sweetness. Honey wheat and a light citrusy sweet taste. This one goes down so easy, it is very refreshing and highly drinakable. Low carbonation with a medium body. A great seasonal that I love to enjoy with some barbecued chicken in the summer.

One of the better summer wheats I’ve had. Orange amber pour. Fruity wheat nose and taste. Rated 8/31/08
