COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hazy and golden in color, this brew is a fresh twist on the popular Hefeweizen style. Eureka and Lisbon lemons, from three growing regions in California, balance out the wheat malt character, resulting in a crisp and refreshing wheat ale with subtle lemon flavor. Cheers!

Wife let me sample some of hers. Bottle into a pint glass. Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus and yeast. Taste is light and refreshing, not much character though. Easy drinking for warmer weather.

12 oz. bottle thanks to Dan, I think... or whoever left this in my fridge. Pours a dark, straw color, with a medium, off-white head. The aroma is hay, oranges, light bubblegum, lemon juice, and coriander. Citrusy sweetness, a touch of bready yeast, and a light, lemony tartness. Light body, chewy, and lightly acidic. Overall, this is a fair wheat beer. Hits most of the key points of the style, but the flavor is weak, and the mouthfeel is lacking.

Pours a hazy golden color with light white head. Citrus, wheat, and come lemon on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a wheaty sweetness to it.

bottle. Golden with small head. Wheat beer with light lemony tartness. Unexciting, but fairly refreshing.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a slightly hazy copper/yellow body that has a small white head that appears for just a minute and slowly dies to a carbonated looking layer coating the top of the beer. The lacing is spotty and leaves some rings. There isn’t any carbonation seen rising. The smell had some citrus and some bread. I definitely smell the yeast, in fact, the yeast almost comes out overpowering. The taste did not seem to be balanced as the yeast comes out overpowering again. The wheat tries to come out and play but pretty much stays in the background. A certain blandness comes out in the taste that makes me wanna question what was Boston Beer Company thinking. The palate was extremely watery and the carbonation stays where it should - basically balanced, sessionable. Overall, decent for the style, but I couldn’t get into this one.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 Coastal Wheat is bizarre. The lemon character is strong and strangely sweet. While the citrus notes have settled into the aroma, they are less apparent in the taste. In fact, the lemons give the beer an oddly sweet taste that reminds me of corn. This isn’t a bad wheat ale, but it’s highly unusual. For many, that will be off-putting.

I had this at home. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Taste wheat and citrus. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rated 10-24-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a small off-white head with a short retention, cloudy body, spotty amounts of lacing, and no visible carbonation. The Aroma is wheat, hints of bananas, lemons, malt, and some spice. The Taste mimics the Aromas. The Palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. In conclusion, this beer falls short for the way it taste.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear gold in color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, lemon and creamy wheat. Creamy wheat flavor with lemon character before a semi-dry and creamy finish.

Bottle pour clear yellow. Nose supposed to smell like lemon and wheat, but to me smelled like a urinal. Taste had chemically tart lemon and slight chlorine finish. Had to drain pour this one
