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.

imdownthepub (13032) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2009
Bottled, 500ml from Tesco, Banbury. Clouded yellow gold with white head. initially pleasant enough, banana, esthery, reasonably spicy, but within a short space of time the effect becomes cloying and artificial. It lacked some oomph to keep the interest, but still a pretty decent effort and certainly not dislikeable.

hazy gold pour, small white head, some lace. nose of grain. lemon peel, banana. banana dominates the flavor, touch of lemon grass, hint of hoppy bitterenss, spicy wheatness on the tongue. medium bodied, sweet banana finish. i don’t like wheat beer and this onr didn’t disappoint. single bottle from binny’s beverage depot orland park.

LordGnome (16) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 15, 2009
500ml bottle from Lithuanian delicatessen in Essex. There’s definitely a banana and citrus flavour to this wheat beer. Perhaps not as complex as the best German wheat beers but not a bad example of the style by any stretch of the imagination. When initially poured, the yeast remained at the bottom of the bottle and required agitation before it could be added to the rest of the beer. It tastes much better with the yeast present. Definitely something that I would drink again.

rosenbergh (10188) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2009
500 ml bottle. From Cardiff, Wales. Pale golden colour with medium white head. Wheat, banana and citrus in aroma. Quite sweet. Slightly artificial flavour with banana, some spices and wheat. Not bad but not Hefeweizen at its best.

Unclear medium yellow color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, wheaty, paper, rubber. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [20090122]

rauchbier (3786) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2009
Bottle, from Tesco Cleethorpes. Hazy lemon gold thin but lasting white head and good condition. Pleasant estery banana fruitiness and gentle lemon citrus in the nose, soft and dry in the mouth with some clove spiciness and a gentle ester note developing, becoming more banana like as it warms, slight chalky bitterness in the finish with more restrained esters lingering.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 I’d have expected a beer with wheat in it brewed in Lithuania to kill me, but i’m still here and dig this wheat beer.I dunno what the other tasters were drinking.Very wheaty and then citrusy..a stream of boozy banana esters are there...full body.Some tart notes in the back. Good shit.

500ml bottle (Estonia) - gift from SaintMatty - thanks!
Rich cloudy orange, healthy tight head. Classic german hefeweizen aroma, a touch of orange and coriander. Soft palate, decent carbonation. Sweet and morish. Very easy drinker, leaves a biscuity and slightly hoppy finish. As good as many german hefe’s.
