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.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a hazy yellow/golden color with a two finger white head. The head fades in a moderate amount of time to leave a lighter amount of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of wheat bread and lemon citrus. Mixed with these aromas are some lighter notes of a grassy smell as well as a light yeasty smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a good grainy wheat flavor. It is relatively on the more sweet side. Flavors of a light lemon citrus hop flavor accompany the wheat in the start. As the flavor advances, some bitter flavors intensify while the beer dries out a bit. In the end some flavors of yeast and pepper combined with the rest to leave a crisp wheat flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the lighter to medium side with the carbonation level being very average.

Overall – The beer had a great wheat flavor and was quite easy to drink. Quite grainy but very nice overall.

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.

A: Pale, cloudy yellow hue with a huge frothy head; lacing is good

S: Grainy with a big dose of citrus; lemon rind, lemon, pepper, coriander, very grassy and grainy--this smells pretty good though maybe a touch one dimensional

T: Simple but tasty; quite grainy; lots of the wheat along with grass but also lots of lemon and lemon rind--really pretty refreshing

F: Well carbonated; medium body; a touch thin on the back end

O: This is a summer session beer; really drinkable; it's simple and I"m not always a huge fan of the style but this is pretty good nonetheless

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.

My coworker is signed to a beer of the month club and was kind enough to share this with me.
This pour hazy yellow with a rock white head.

There is a crispy kind of sharpness with soft wheat and citrus hops aroma at first in the with moderat sulfar note that diminishes after a couple of minutes.

Moderate wheat flavor with a moderate hop bitterness both lasting into the crisp finish. There is a medium-low citrus hops flavor in there as well

This has a medium light body with a medium-high level of carbonation.

This is an easy to drink refreshing beer. It's too bad the nose is off for the first couple of minutes but the flavor is just fine.

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.
