Nude Beach Summer Wheat
(Stevens Point Brewery)

As summer seems begins to wind down I thought I'd take advantage while I still CAN and review this seasonal release. Nude Beach Summer Wheat is a brand new canned release from the folks at Stevens Point Brewery hitting the shelves at the beginning of the summer.

From the Stevens Point Brewing site:


"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."


Here we go...


Pour - soft golden straw-color with a wispy head on top. A little cloudy at first but this one settles clean and clear, even if it is unfiltered.


Aroma - grainy, lemony, some sweet orange peel and a little fresh cut grass. Not a whole lot of aroma but that is par for the style.


Taste - light and tangy. This has a great citrusy bite to it and a nice malt profile. Its nothing complex but I think that is it's strong point. Goes down way too easy. Put a cooler of these near me on a warm day and I'd be all set.


Overall - ridiculously easy to drink! I had my hesitations but Nude Beach surprised me. This was a solid brew with great flavor and a stand out for the style in my opinion.


Would I buy more of it? - I really dig this beer. It's very easy drinking and a great canned alternative to other light summer wheat beers (a la Sam Adams Summer).


Availability - May-July


Note - Stevens Point Brewery also canned summer-release beers for Schlafly Brewing and O'Fallon Brewing in neighboring Illinois this year.
