Sweet wheat aroma with hints of lemon. Cloudy golden color with a medium white head. Mild sweet cardboard flavor with a sticky palate. Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Poured from a bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass.
Ah, it’s been too long since I’ve had a Sam Adams... I wound up getting a Brewmaster Variety Pack. This was included with Irish Red and Latitude 48 IPA -- the latter of which I’ve already had.
Appearance: There’s next to no head on this beer... none at all. It’s very thing and wispy. As for the lacing, there’s none of that to speak of. The color of the beer is nice... a hazy yellow color that reminds me of Mountain Dew when I put it up to the light.
Smell: Very wheat-heavy, with traces of citrus in there as well. Pleasant, but nothing overpowering or too exciting.
Taste: Above average, but nothing that’ll make your pupils dilate. I feel like this could well be Samuel Adam’s summer beer because it’s really easy to drink. Clean, wheaty, citrusy... tasty.
Mouthfeel: Watery, with mild carbonation, but smooth as it foams up a bit on your tongue. Pretty average.
Overall, I really like Coastal Wheat. Far from my favorite Sam Adams beer, but I’ll have no problem drinking the other that’s in the six-pack. Another good offering from S.A. Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2013
12oz bottle. Hazy yellow appearance, decent-size head. Yeasty aromas with a bit of spice. I didn’t get too much of the lemon taste, but it definitely has "wheat-y" roots. It’s not bad, but I’d rather drink a real hefeweizen, or a witbier - not this. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow orange body with a one finger fizzy white head that left a little sticky lacing. The nose on this one just does’t do it for me. It smells like a box of lemonheads dissolved in instant lemonade powder with just a light bit of yeast and wheat. The flavor is thankfully a little bit more toned down in the lemon than the aroma up front, but it does finish a bit like lemon Pledge. There’s a yeast slurry flavor that permeates throughout, but it seems to just add a bit of weirdness to the whole mix of things. Light bodied with a slightly creamy texture and soft fizzy carbonation. This one was a pretty big flop for me. If I wanted to drink instant lemonade, I wouldn’t have opened a beer.

bottle. Poured straw coloured with a thin white head. Light malt aroma. Thin mouthfeel, tight carbonation, slightly dry finish. Taste is lightly lemony with pale malt.

This pale wheat ale pours a light golden yellow and has the delicate taste of wheat and lemons. A great summer beer as it drinks lightly and tastes great. Another great beer from Sam Adams. airrick2003 (872) - Louisiana, USA - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 Appearance: hazy golden color, smaller white head, Aroma: lemon, fruity, faint Taste: lemon, some wheat, Palate: bit of froth, if anything a bit of lemon finish Overall: not very complex, not bad or great, easy drinking would be a good session beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a large white head. Lemon, wheat and yeast aromas with a light hint of spice. Lemon flavor with wheat and yeast notes. Light hints of tart fruit and spices. Thin and light throughout. Similar finish with some added floral hop notes and a touch more spice.

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. Judes (29) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2012
