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.

Cloudy gold appearance with a large white head and a fair amount of lacing. Restrained aroma of soft fruit, spice and yeast. Flavors follow the traditional hefe style, with the wheat, banana and spice being prominent. Very smooth, decently carbonated, medium bodied mouthfeel. A peppery touch in the aftertaste of the average length finish.

Very watery wheatish lager. Nose is spicy grass. Taste is orange malt. Rated 8/13/08

Rating: Svyturys Baltas Kvietinis Alus 5,0%. Nicely fermented aroma followed by a beautiful, hazy, yellow liquid when poured up. The taste was a little too bitter, but the overall impression is thumbs up.

Yes, a big odd shaped bottle, I think its about 16 oz. Pours like a very good hefe, gunk on the bottom and all makes for a delicious looking swirling hypnotizing wheat beer. Flavor is very good, a fine example of german hefe. Bubble gum bananas and other mild spices none of which are overwelming. Much better than most american hefe attempts, not rudely ale like in any way, very pleasing to the palate. A very good example of what hefe should be like, almost comes across as friendly as a wit beir. Good bubbly CO2 is rather pleasant. Overall nice beer experience, you’d think this stuff came from Germany. No bitterness on the finish what so ever, simply lovely!

Good small, yeasted. Hazy white color of liquid and white head on it. Test is sourish, I think find in this beer the banan, but found dry banan. On finish is wheaten test. Soft carbonation. Good, but I don’t like wheat beer. And it’s more similar with belgium white beer.

Certainly quite drinkable, however it lacks the cloudy haze that I expect from a beer in this style. Almost golden lager colored. Faint yeasty spiciness in the aroma and flavor, but not enough to make me stand up and take notice. Certainly drinkable, and not off-putting, but not complex enough to make me excited about it.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2009
..had this a few years back. It poured a murky light orange, with lots of sediment, and a white puffy that held nicely with lacing. The nose I remember was different than normal wheat beers, had some distinct notes. Flavors were very wheaty, with lemon and citrus notes. Creamy from what I remember, and went down well. I will definitely have to look for this again, I thought it was interesting and good, hmm, A lithuanian wheatbeer. Worth a try.

This is an unexpectedly delightful conconction. Pours a cloudy peach color with a full head. Olfactory senses are tickled by an effervescent yeastiness with crisp, clean phenolics and a tart wheatiness. Zesty and refreshing. The flavor is a full, tart wheatiness with light banana phenolic undertones. This brew seems to emerge in some penumbra shareds by a German Wheat, Belgian Witt, and Berliner Weisse, as it masterfully. seems to straddle all three style. Refreshing, satisfying, and delicious.

thegreenrooster (4396) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma has that clove and banana thing going on which is a good thing. Flavor is some banana and clove but not as strong as the aroma. After the swallow some wheat hits the tounge but kind watery in the end. Still, this is not as bad as some ratings on here. There are more than enough positive things going on with this beer to make it to the decent category.
