Holmen1 (5474) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2017
0,2 glass fra fat (planke) på Alaus Biblioteka, Vilnius: uklar brunfarge med svært kort skum. Brød, malt og blomster i en interessant smakskombinasjon og med svært lav bitterhet - minner om norsk hesjeøl. Iflg den entusiastiske bartenderen brygget av Litauens 70 år gamle "queen of Lithuanian farmhouse ales". Nokså flat men en spesiell ettersmak som varer. Uvanlig og spennende smaksopplevelse.

Bottle. Appearance is reddish with off white head. Aroma is nothing spectacular: malt, nuts, and hops. Taste is moderately sweet. Medium bodied. First Lithuanian beer for me.

dnicolaescu (2388) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 30, 2016
ON TAP at Snekutis. Rustic aroma of cooked apples, oatmeal and a touch of vanilla. A little tart/fermenting. The taste is light sweet and nutty, light spicy phenolics resembling spicy goat cheeses. Unique and good.

teddybeer (3688) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 9, 2016
Murky brown color with a white head, medium retention. Aroma has yeasty notes, slightly caramel with some herbal hints. Flavor is mild acidic, herbal notes with some ginger in the final.

pivnizub (10399) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle(as Jovaru Šnekutis/@ Litauen Spezial, Alles Gärbar Bochum): Hazy, golden, no head to speak of; Aroma is very hard to describe, maybe fruity-cellary, traces of sour dough, traces of burnt malt; moderate sweet-sourish flavour, thinnish MF; short fruity and goughy finish. Not my cup of tea...

mzaar (3153) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2016
Fat @ Snekutis (Sv Stepono). Oklar mörkorange vätska med ett minimalt vitt skum. Dofter av mogen frukt, örter och gräs. Smakinslag av örter, citrus, krusbär och gräs. Torr munkänsla, syrlig eftersmak och avslutning. Mycket trevlig.

subgrade (11) - LATVIA - JAN 17, 2016
1.0 liter PET bottle.Dominated by yeast in both aroma and taste, with some sweet-sour malts, hints of nuts and potato. Small off-white head, traces of lacing. Medium body, low carbonation. Greyish-brownish colour, murky, looks exactly like drawn from a muddy puddle. A rather typical Baltic countryside farmhouse ale, not terrible, but also not something I’d look forward to have.

lokis333 (454) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JAN 3, 2016
Cloudy unfiltered dark honey color with minimal white foam. Aromas on the weak side and smells like this Lithuanian candy that I can not remember but I know it! Which means aromas are somewhat sweet? Other than that smells of malt, straw, grapes and rasins. Palate, medium/full body, with heavy sweet thickish texture (could be bit thicker), and leaves rye bread, typical Lithuanian farm house ale finish that is somewhat sweet and really nice! Taste,Sweet of rasins, sunflower seeds, malty, nice and simple.Overall, nice simple, easy going and good fit for Lithuanian farmhouse ale style category, just bit on light side. I really did enjoy it but I had some other Lithuanian farmhouse ales and they did have nicer thicker texture and feel heavier in the mouth, but still very good and highly recomendable ale to try!
