Glouglouburp (5934) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2012
In short: Honeyed sun dried hay in a bottle with a farmhouse and fruity edge. Very good
How: Tap at Šnekutis Užupis, Vilnius, Lithuania. Super-fresh PET 500ml bottles directly at the brewery. Bottle a few days later at the hotel.
The look: Clear blonde body topped by a small white head (tap). Only a ring of white foam from the bottles
In long: Nose is grainy toasted malts and sun dried hay and a light farmhouse character (henhouse-ish). Taste is very clean, surprisingly clean in fact considering brewery uses open fermentation. Expressive cereals with a sun dried hay and husky characater, also light notes of honey, timid notes of tropical fruits. A light herbaceous hops presence and a low sweetness sensation. Not one of my favorites but nonetheless a good example of what the Lithuanian countryside farmhouse beers have to offer. This beer is somewhat similar but a bit more restrained than the superior Davra Daujotu. Once again I found the tap version superior to the bottle version, PET bottling process need some work in Lithuania. My score is for the tap version, 0.3 lower for the PET bottle. Not only was this beer very good, but the pub was out of this word, let me also tell you that drinking beer at Šnekutis Užupis is almost as much fun was watching a midget couple try to fold a set of king size bed sheets.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 5, 2012
From a lagering vessel or from 1L bottle (Juolda Brewery)
Bread and butter - smooth and malty. Hops low. Simple and clean. A touch of heller-bockiness in that there’s something a little plastic about it, but it’s a very drinkable lager.

TaktikMTL (5628) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2012
En fût. Pinte dégustée chez Šnekutis Užupis (Vilnius, Lituanie). Arôme: Odeur de céréales avec une pointe fruitée. Apparence: La couleur est blonde pâle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de céréales et de fruité avec une pointe de pommes. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #4178)

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 My Bottom Line:
This highly polished Lithuanian Šviesus delivers honeyed malts, hay and light fruitiness in a silky mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam (on tap; barely a ring from the bottle) decorates the clear pale blond.
-Light toasted malt character is found, but not nearly as intense as Davra Daujotu’s, or Butautu Dvaro Šviesus, for example.
-Carbonation was much different on tap vs. bottles. Something tells me the highly creamy carbonation we had at Šnekutis Užupis was not the usual since most Lithuanian brews I’ve had on tap and bottles were only very lightly carbonated.
-Whispering herbal hops add character.
-The bottled version resembles a very malty English Golden Ale, to give you an example.

On tap at Šnekutis Užupis (4.1) and from many bottles (3.5), including at the brewery itself.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 27, 2010
Draught. My first but far from the last beer at Snekutis. Quite hazy golden, colour with a medium white head. Mild fruity and malty bit sweet (honey) aroma. The flavour has a good fruity hoppiness with a pleasant sweetness and a mild maltiness finishing off with a pleasant well lasting bitterness.

omhper (19185) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2009
Draught at Šnekutis , Šv. Stepano, Vilnius. Hazy golden, small head. Grassy honey nose. Very dry with clean and crisp, yet rounded mouthfeel. Mildly spicy, quite hoppy with hay and honey. A crisp, refreshing, yet rustic beer, much in the same line as zoigl in Oberpfalz.
