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.

Heartland wheat pours a clear golden-yellow color with minimal foam. The aroma is a mixture of wheat and malt with some sourness peaking through. Not sure what the source of the sourness is, but it is a little too much. This continues on the palate where citric acidity is balances some light malt. The body is wheat all the way. I would prefer a little less sourness, but overall a drinkable summer brew for a hot summer day.

this is a bit unconventional, and my first nebraska brew! pours a moderately hazy pale pale straw color with a jovial white head. smells very lemony, rind and juice, almost from concentrate smell. also nice fresh wheat malt that imparts a nice bready aroma, and a clever yeast with a touch of spice. the flavor is very lemon forward, tart and crisp, perfect for summer. the yeast ties it all together in a fruity flavorful ribbon, and it totally works. super easy drinking with a light body and intense carbonation. i was impressed with this and will have to visit the brewery next time through. solid summer drink.
