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. Vilnius Lithuania. A most refreshing beer that pours very cloudy and tastes both citrusy and spicy, with an aroma of yeast and wheat. Very good.

(Bottle) Pours cloudy golden, with lots of creamy white head. Notes of grapefruit and bananas. Quite a good hefewiizen indeed..

Difficult beer to rate, I really mean it, because the taste and flavor are fantastic without a single doubt, but the appearance was, in my case, one of the worst that I had ever seen. If it’s just about quantity for you, it is perfect, but if you like having a beer well served with head, in the right glass, etc. - take this ONLY for the taste.

FrankJohansen (3602) - Sabro, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2006
Cloudy yellow colour with a medium mostly lasting head. Aroma and taste of citrus and yeast. Not the best hefeweizen around.

Muddy light yellow color with great head. Sweet yeasty flavor, a good hefeweizen.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2006
Pours a near-opaque golden/wheat topped with a small, white cap. Despite its opacity, I can detect a boatload of carbonation streaming upwards. Yeasty aroma finds dough and banana with apple and tomato adding acidity... and a whiff of armpit to keep you from getting too excited (although, knowing some of you, armpit aromas will be exciting). Spritzy astringence accompanies initial sour/metallic fruitiness. The metal fades as the palate becomes buttery with a sour banana flavor dominating and lingering after. This was OK, but will fall in the lower third of my rated Hefes.

NOTE: In reading the Commercial Description, I’ve noticed what may be an error: You probably do not want to "shake the bottle before opening". I would suggest gently swirling the bottle after most has been poured into your Weizen glass in order to stir up the bottom yeasts for inclusion in your tasting.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2006
I was really looking forward to this but ended up being completely disappointed. It’s a light,flavorless, boring weissebier. Still, it’s better than the mass produced skunky lagers, imported or domestic.

sunevdj (3152) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2006
Pours a murky yellow with a white head. Sweet and quite dry. Malt, wheat, banana and citrusy aromas. Sweet finish. Quite full... too wheatish.

saxo (13851) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2006
50 cl bottle. Nice aroma. Beautiful head that lasts. A refreshing beer with a hint of citrus - the way it is supposed to and not overdone.

NosirIwont (1954) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is grassy with lots of plastic at first, but this dies down a bit as it warms, giving way for fruity and yeasty notes. The plastic is still there, though. Flavour is sweetish and yeasty with more plastic. Slight notes of apple in the finish, as well as… plastic. I suspect I might find a piece of Lego in the bottom. 12-01-06.
