COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tradicinė kolekcija
Švyturys White (5%) is a wheat Hefeweizen beer, member of the traditional Švyturys collection. It is defined by a refreshing taste and flavour that resembles a bouquet of cloves, bananas, plums, orange peel and exotic fruit. This non-filtered, cloudy beer with its peculiar taste and exceptional flavour should be served with a slice of lemon in a special pre-chilled glass. A wheat beer glass quite sharply flared at the top to look a bit like an hourglass, designed so as to perfectly reveal the flavour of this exclusive beer. Beer White perfectly complements fish, seafood, soft cheese, and light fruit desserts.

Bottle 500 ml
Appearance : br>Faintly hazed bright gold with medium sparkly top..
Nose :Strong aroma of what beer yeasty, grainy with gentle hint of spice and tropical fruit.
Flavour/Palate : Medium bodied but with gentle compextion. Citric tartness with silky yeast, herbal tea middle, freshly rolled dough. This brew reminds me a lot of Edelweiss from Austria yet not as rich as its western brother. Quiet good.

yespr (36095) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow and with a huge chalk white head. Aroma is wheaty, with a minor metallic note and a classic wheat-bubblegum note too. Flavour is rather smooth and starts out much like a Belgian wit with a mellow and nice set of spices. After this a classic German hefeweizen flavour takes over, which sadly also introduces bubblegum flavours. Sweet and citric towards a bitter and wheaty finish. Nice

Eructoblaster (3397) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle - 500ml. Pale gold cloudy body with a thick but fading white frothy head. Decent malty hoppy aroma with strong yeasty hints. Taste is well balanced, but it lacks strength and complexity. It ends with a short and rather weak bittersweet finish. Underaverage Hefeweizen.

Slipstream (2241) - USA - OCT 10, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2007 OK label, light head, pleasant aroma. I guess I am supposed to say I smell bananas, like a lot of other ratebeer mavens do - except that I have never really smelled bananas in a beer. This is nicely carbonated - wheaty and sweet, with touches of herbs and grass. Too sweet, actually - it tastes like it was mixed with lemon soda pop. Not a great hefeweizen, and not the best from this brewer, but drinkable when it is cold.

hotstuff (4413) - Indiana, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle. The appearance was a large sized head as white as snow that mostly diminished, minimal amount of lacing, transparent, visible carbonation, and a yellow golden hue. The nose was malty, swet, banana, spicy, and clove. Ditto for the flavor along with some tartness and it tasted sour as this beer warmed. Fairly smooth mouthfeel and light body. Quaffable and decent tasting; however, there are much better tasting beers of this style that I much prefer over this one.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours a hazy pale golden with a large white pillowy head. Aroma of spices and bananas. The flavor is sugar, bananas, wheat, and spice. Good body, not a premium Hefe.

thedm (5163) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 5, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a slightly hazy typically carbonated light yellow-orange colored body. The aroma was malty bready wheat and mild astringency. The semi-thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt and wheat. An OK brew just nothing special.

shrubber85 (9140) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle. Apple cider, banana, and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy tan yellow color with a big head. Sweet banana and sour wheat malt flavor. Full bodied. A very solid Hefe - stands up to its German brothers.

Bottled Hazy pale yellow colour. Big cottony head. Light sourish aroma with lemony and banana esters plus clove. Bit dry in mouthfeel with clove dominating. Medium-Big on Co2. Pretty solid weizen without phenols. Medium bodied. Long finish.

easily one of the cloudiest pours i’ve seen. looks like grapefruit juice with a large creamy white head. aroma of banana, grapefruit, lemons. flavors of lemon, bubblegum, clove, banana. high carbonation. medium bodied. a little underrated. i enjoyed this.
