Entry No. 2 of Craft Beer Expo. I was pleasantly surprised by this offering. Notes are from my rating scale and manual I carried with me while I was there. There's not much to this description as I was chatting it up with some girls at the tasting table. What I've jotted is all I got.

Serving style : 6 oz taster glass

Appearance (3.75) : Hazy orange glow. Around 70% opacity.

Aroma (3.5) : Strong wheat and orange fruit. Bouquet, while simple, is medium to strong.

Flavor (4) : Pleasantly hoppy, lots of malt too. Barley, orange rind, pine, and a lightly woody character.

Mouthfeel (3.5) : Light bodied, creamy, wet, ending semi-dry.

Overall (3.81) : "Good wheat character with a hop bite, refreshing and sessionable." Would Buy - Yes; Would Try Again - Yes.

Pours a smooth golden color, two fingers wide head at the top, poured into a wheat beer glass. Smells strongly of wheat and citrus. More lemony smell than any other wheat beer I've had. Mouthfeel is pretty light, feels like a wheat beer. Tasting of lots of lemon, just like the smell. Goes down smooth, you can definitely taste the wheat behind the citrus. Lemon aftertaste, but not sour. My favorite wheat beer.

Had this one a few times before since it is just made 15 miles from the house! Last sampled on 10/28/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a straw-yellow in color with a very thin white head. Leaves some spotty lacing when sipped. The aroma is of course mostly wheat grain with a hint of citrus. The taste is of wheat right up front with a sweet light corn flavor. Very easy to drink with the right amount of carbonation. Well balanced and a great wheat beer that is made locally.

Heartland Wheat pours a hazyish straw color, with a small lacing head. Their is a wheat like aroma, with hints of citrus. The taste has a nice easy wheat grain taste, with a nice lemon note, and just a small bit of hoppy bitterness. So easy to drink, and very full flavors. Overall one of the better wheat beers I have had.
