Hazy yellow beer with nice hints of amber and a sea-foamy shock white head on top. Nice retentive sheet on top. Fresh and citrusy on the nose, big notes of wheat that combine with the citrus to make for a nice nose. Even something a little funky in there, a hint of that farmhousey yeast that goes with Belgian wheat beers. Not bad.

Nice and soft body from the wheat that lets the flavors come out pretty nicely. Pleasant notes of citrus and wheat with a touch of toasty bread notes from the barley. The citrus comes in on the back side, partly from the very mild bitterness from the hops. These hops seem to have imparted more of their flavor than the bitterness, giving out a nice lemony citrus in the back end that brings the beer around into a big refreshing circle. A hint of that yeast comes through, imparting a slight bit of funk to the citrus and wheat flavors. It is a welcome taste. Great with the smooth mouthfeel and easy going nature. Clean and crisp mouthfeel that puts a bow on it.

Nice little hints of complexities with this beer, but it is better enjoyed as an easy going sipper on a hot summer day that you could drink while barbecuing.

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.
