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 (2121) - 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.

Gehbe (41) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUN 13, 2016
Thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma quite weak, fruity (mostly banana, a bit citrussy), some clove and a hint of smokiness. Tastes fairly sour, fruity (lemony), some smokiness on finish. Overcarbonated. A fairly drinkable beer, but no magic.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Hazed light tan/golden liquid. Tall, stable white head. A touch of malt o meal in the aroma. Hints of slightly stale yeast. Somehow an old milking parlor comes to mind, with grains and hints of barnyard. Not necessarily bad, but not overly fresh smelling, at least beer-wise. Lots of sweet flavors from the start with wheat and grains. Lightly sharp, to not quite dull yeast and spice. Quite sharp in the finish with a lemon acidity. An average weisse with what seems to be a little age. 3/10

Tranquillity (1743) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2016
Draft at Beirut restaurant in Warsaw. Really even hazy yellow body, huge white head. The aroma and flavors are weak but I like he finishing touches of sweet herbs and honey, some nuts.

Ciekawe litewskie piwo pszeniczne z osadem. Butelka raczej skromna. Barwa bursztynowa, ciemnozłota. Piana ładna, obfita. Klasycznie w aromacie i smaku banany, kwiaty, cytrusy. Do powtórnego napitku.

Nische (1753) - 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.
