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.

Into a pint glass:

A: mostly clear somewhat hazy, but still steady streams of carbonation are seen rising and feeding a one finger white foamy head that dies within a minute, some nice decent slightly foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass

S: wheat up front, slightly sweet maltiness, light corn

T: mainly sweet through the wheat and corn, slightly bready, definite bready aftertaste, dry finish

M: light to medium, fairly sessionable, carbonation was on par for the style and good for me

O: may not get the best reviews here, but I came from the wasteland of this style, if anyone thinks this is bad, try finding this style done well from New England and then you'll find this isn't as bad you think, I'd have this again

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.

Cloudy gold, just a finger of dying white head on mine.

A previous description of old pretzels is apt for the nose - like those that may have been at the bar for a few weeks.

Led by a predominant yeasty sourness, do we really need to go further? The wheat is there, but comes through dry, like have to separate the grain from the chaff with your tongue - this isn't fun.

The taste being as it is, the carbonation doesn't matter much, though it overly pops the tongue.

Parched in the desert? This is ok. Otherwise? Look elsewhere.
