AMERICAN WHEAT

Samuel Adams Coastal Wheat

Some feel compelled to add lemon to a wheat beer, but there's no need to add the citrusy fruit to this American Hefeweizen from the Boston Beer Company. A pronounced lemon flavor and aroma comes through, thanks to the addition of the zest of California-grown Eureka and Lisbon varieties of lemon. The result is a balance of citrus tartness and sweetness, which is further offset by the spiciness of Hallertau Mittelfrueh and Spalt Spalter Noble hops. A real thirst quencher, this brew is a crisp and refreshing treat for a hot summer day. An ideal pairing is marrying this beer's citrus character with a tangy Caesar salad to bring out its peppery bite.

Price: $1.40 (12 oz.)
