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.

Nische (1643) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2016
Bottle from lithuanian friends. Pours hazy, bright yellow with white head. Aroma of banana, cloves, slight caramel and yeast. Maybe a touch of rubber. Taste is on the sweeter side with caramel, banana, wheat and slight lemon and white pepper. Quite decent weizen without anything special or memorable.

Garrold (3648) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2016
Bottle. Mitchell’s Wines, Sheffield. A quid. Cloudy, pale orange. Quite dense, lasting, thick, white head. Aroma is yeasty, herby sweet. Some clove. Light spice. Taste is soft sweet. Some lemon pith bitterness. Thin body. Has an artificial sweetener thing going on. Bit of an aspirin thing, too. Curious bittersweet finish. Smells ok, but I didn’t like this much overall. Even at a quid a pop.

Kiedy byłem na Litwie kilka lat temu uznałem to piwo za jedne z najlepszych pszeniczniaków w Europie! Pora była zweryfikować tą opinię, kupując butelkę w markecie... Kolor ciemnosłomkowy, mętne, piana z początku obfita, następnie dość szybko opada. W aromacie banany - dobrze wyczuwalne. W smaku... hmm - pszeniczny standard, jest banan (nienachalny), trochę kwasowości. Goryczka niska. Czasem wrażenie lekkiej wodnistości. Piwo niewątpliwie niezłe, niemniej piłem już lepsze weizeny, więc widać jak się człowiekowi smak rozwija ;)

1/24/16 Chicago (500 ml bottle poured in two phases into tulip glass). Golden cloudy pour, with generous foamy white head, heavy carbonation and generous lacing. Sweat fruity wheat yeast aroma, with hints of citrus and plums. Pleasant tastes include citrus wheat, very crisp and clean, solid carbonation felt, though somewhat smooth going down. Nice, enjoyable Hefe, and I look forward to my next bottle.
