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.

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

Ungstrup (34715) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2005
An unclear orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is dusty combined with notes of coriander and wheat. The flavor is sweet with notes of wheat and spices. The body is light, but it has a powerful aftertaste.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy, pale golden with a delicious, creamy and very white head. Fruity, fresh nose. Soft and smooth mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of delicate, fruity wheat esters - banana, citrus etc. Actually this is one of the most wheaty wheat beers I’ve had for a long time. Nice surprise. 170905

Warning! Early amateur rating! A light and frothy wheat beer with just a hint of citrus. Slightly dry finish, very mild bitter note.

Bottle at home ... Tesco Drinks winner ... Yellow with a light haze ... decdent banana wheat nose ... quite sweet but otherwise very typical wheat tones ... lots of fruityness... this deserves better than it 2.96 average... quite tasty.
