Coastal wheat is hazy and orange in appearance, very cloudy throughout entire beer. White foam sticks around for a while considering this is brewed with lemon peels. Usually the citrus flavor wards off the foam very quickly. Immediately I smell coriander and citrus flavors although other malty biscuit characters can be vaguely processed.

At first spices such as coriander and orange pound the palette and sit there until they become sour. Then on the way down the lemon comes through in full force and gives a lemon citrus after taste with some mild biscuit notes thrown in the mix too.

This beer is medium in feel and is really wet. It can hit the spot though if your craving a wheat so don't count it out completely. It does the job for me, but it's not amazing.
