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.

Fatehunter (1948) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Into a weizen glass. Two fingers of head, nice retention. Lots of bubbles in the hazy, dark straw colored body. Great smell of lemon, orange zest, banana and grapefruit. Nice fizzy texture, a dry and mild bitter taste. Pleasant and simple. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation. An excellent wit.

dukeandduke (182) - Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2016
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.

stoigniew (96) - Łęczna, POLAND - DEC 9, 2015
Aromat polny, trawiasty, kwiatowy, wiosenny bananowy, wyczuwalne drożdże z odrobiną kwasowości. W smaku wytrawne, delikatnie ziołowe, korzenne ze średnią, pozostająca goryczką. W wyglądzie i smaku bardzo poprawne i pomimo że dawno waizenów już nie piłem to bardzo mi smakuje - no może piana troche szybko opadła ale generalnie jest dobrze. Polecam.

Wow what a big surprise! The best hefeweizen ever brewed outside of Germany. A perfect brew with complete balance between distinguished banana flavors, yeast aroma and crispy hops.

Can (56,8 cl) from a work mate. Some typical wheat beer aromas, foam banana and so on, I also got some oranges. Similar taste but it’s a bit rough and has a metallic note to it.
