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 with our kid. Cloudy orangey colour with thin head. Smells odd. Fishy and cheesy, like cheese topped fish. My vocabulary and writing ability astounds me at times. Little citrus. Average and not great for the style.

The bottle looks good. The beer in the glass is very turbid. Yeasty and fruity aroma. Tastes also very fruity, very much like peach. Yeasty finish. Not bad!

DSG (10579) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 9, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow with a medium white head. Nice aroma of banana, some bubblegum hints and a bit of spiciness. Sweetish-sourish flavor with decent fruity esters, citrus, wheat, bready hints and light spiciness. Medium-bodied. A quaffable pleasant Weizen.

Quack-Duck (9079) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2008
bottle, Tesco Honiton. Cloudy pale yellow, big white head. Aroma of banana. Full-bodied, yeasty and wheaty with lovely intensive flavours of banana and a touch of peach. Very pleasant carbonation supporting the banana-yeasty-wheaty flavours. A really really good Hefeweizen of the German style.

scotty (1131) - SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle from Tesco. An average wheat beer on all counts. No distinguishing features. Dont think I’ll be buying it again.

HonkeyBra (3983) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Fizzy, weak wheat beer from Svyturys. A bit of banana and clove somewhere in there, mostly covered by water and metal. This is not, by any means, a good beer.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2008
A Mes rate: Bottle thanks to our Weasel.
Very cloudy light orange brown with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat and cheese and some lemon cream. Flavour is card and wheat. Dry and lemony. A dull lager like weisse. Bet the punters lap this up at JDWs up and down the country and think they are sophisticated. Saying that they probably are compared to the shite most drink in ’Spoons.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2008
Yellowish hazy beer with a white head. Strong banana aroma. Taste is slightly sour with cloves and graininess. A little dryness towards the end. Lots of fizz. Acceptable beverage on a hot day.

This is a very good German style wheat beer. It does not compare to Weihenstephaner, but few do. It is rather clovy, and use a bit more of the banana flavor. It is the best of the baltic wheats I tried.

(Draught on 2008-06-20) Orange. Cloudy. Big white head. Banana and some hops in nose. Lot of carbonation in medium palate. Banana, hops and tiny amount of malts in taste. Tiny hint of smokiness. Some metallic flavour, too.
