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 (13418) - 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.

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 (10707) - 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.
