COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lucky Bucket Heartland Wheat is a light, refreshing and most importantly tasty ale! Brewed with the same high quality water, yeast, hops, and barley as our other beers, this beer also includes a special fifth ingredient, golden wheat from the American Heartland. Adding wheat creates a soft-bodied beer that pairs perfectly with the citrus variety hops that we add during the brewing process. The result is a tasty beer with a fresh finish. Enjoy!

ABV - 4.8%

IBU - 16

Grains - White Wheat, 2-Row barley, and Munich malt

Hops - Willamette, and Cascade

Transfer from BA review on 8-5-12 - 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.

Reviewed from notes. Driving through Nebraska this past summer, stopped in Lincoln and was able to pick this up. The appearance is 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. The smell has wheat up front, slightly sweet maltiness, light corn The taste is mainly sweet through the wheat and corn, slightly bready, definite bready aftertaste, dry finish. On the palate, she sits about a light to medium, comes across fairly sessionable. Carbonation was on par for the style and good for me. Overall, this 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.

Lucky Bucket’s wheat ale makes a very nice first impression. It’s smooth, refreshing and... okay, so there’s not a lot of flavor but the wheat tones with a touch of citrus are totally acceptable. Problem is, this beer’s thin body becomes a problem right away. After being taken from the cold and exposed to the air, this beer begins to develop a less-than-appetizing metallic flavor in very little time. Drink it fast, or better yet, pass and get a better wheat beer.
