Just got this as part of a trade from sendbeer and opened it on a day in the low 80s where summer is trying to hang on for a few more days.
Poured into a goblet this beer has a nice hazy light hay appearance. A big foamy white head quickly dissipated leaving only a light film on the top of the beer, but lots of lacing stuck on the glass.
Smell on this one is good. Wheat, grainy smell isn't as prominent as some others in the style. I'm getting more of a citrus dominated wheat. Some orange peel and lemon zest.
Taste is better than aroma. Really liking this. Lemongrass, clementines, fried plantain chips, little bit of orange marmalade. A little bite of white pepper for some zing.
Mouthfeel works. Lively carbonation, with more of a moderate body delivers the taste well.
Overall this is one of the better wheat beers I've had. I'm not a huge fan of the style in general but I'd seek this out again in hot weather if it was available. Thanks Sendbeer!

Served from bottle into a COAST Willi (proper!). Poured a hazy pale golden yellow with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount very quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, fruit, plantain, and subtle spices. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, fruit, and plantain. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. I really like the refreshing aspect going on here. Also based on a style that is not known for being overly complex, this one still manages to deliver the goods. I really wish it would have had quite a bit more head retention though to make this a very solid brew. Another nice brew from the guys (and Jamie) at COAST.

Growler from CBX
Pours a cloudy golden-yellow with a fluffy white head that fades to a slight cap, leaving a nice ring of haze clinging to the glass.
Crisp and fresh, with a solid amount of citrusy American hops, wheat, and light malt. Nice and approachable. Taste is similarly refreshing, with more citrus peel and cut-grass hops, wheat, and lightly kilned malt. Nothing extravagant, just a well-crafted Summertime brew. Mouthfeel is adequately crisp, with a medium-thin body and good carbonation. Another solid COAST beer, the growler will disappear quickly!

A: Poured from a bottle to a weizen glass. Had a pale yellow color and a hazy texture. There was a big, fluffy, fairly long-lasting head. Very good lacing.
S: A surprisingly sweet aroma of hops, wheat, and a citrus element.
T: Tasted of wheat (not as much as I would have thought), hops (a moderate amount), and citrus (lemon). An extremely light, lively and enjoyable flavor.
M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.
O: Not a super-complex beer, but definitely a nice lightweight brew for summer. Drinkable.

Appearance: Pours a hazy straw color with a nice foamy cap that leaves a bit of lacing
Smell: Bready, but with a nice citrusy aspect
Taste: Bready, at first, but it doesn't take long for the hops to make an impression, bringing a refreshing citrusy bitterness that lasts throughout
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: You knew this would not be just another Wheat beer coming from COAST and it certainly is not - well done

3.4/5 rDev -15.4%
Poured from a 64 oz brown growler into a Shaker pint. Growler purchased at The Lodge (Hilton Head Island, SC) for $Vvb16.
A: Hazy pale yellow with a 1-finger white head with decent retention and reasonably admirable lace for a wheat beer.
S: Very tangy wheat with lemon rind as the main hop features. There is a bit of eart hyu murkiness, but not much else to report.
T: The hops seem like light Amarillo that never quite get over the hump. The wheat and pilsner malt contribtuion are lost.
M: The feel is light with low carbonation.
O: There is nothing terribly wrong with this beer, but there is also nothing really too right either.

A: Very nice lemon color with a a subtle haze to it. The head is massive and creamy white.
S: A little sweetness, a little alcohol, lemon, a little wheat, orange. It's very light but very under control. Hops come through nicely.
T: Very light with hints of lemon and orange. Not a lot of wheat coming through here but that's fine. It's a great execution.
M: After pouring this I thought it was going to be light but this is a creamy beer with a great body and perfect carbonation.
Overall this is an amazing beer. The creamy mouthfeel compliments the lighter subtle flavors of this beer all of which hit perfectly and are very precise. The only reason for the 4.5 instead of 5 is it's a little on the light side. A must have.
