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.

0.5-litre bottle. Pours a very lightly yellow-ish thick head. Aroma is funky, I think there’s the yeast they’ve used, some fruitiness and citrus. The taste has some hints of this citrus as well. Yeast is also present. Overall, pretty basic hefeweizen.

Bottle from my better half, thanks. Sparse head, light yellow colour, hazy. Aroma: banana, grain, cloves. Lightly sweet taste with a short bitter aftertaste, light body, lively. Not bad at all, refreshing, I like it.

Out of the four Švyturys beers I sampled this was by far the best one. Eastern European breweries can make a good Hefe. This is no exception.

Pours very nicely. Rich golden hue. Good taste! So the gentleman tripping on acid just ate a piece of his jeans and then coughed it up. This is now quite a memorable beer!

Little over carbonated but a nice wheat beer with an intense taste of yeast and a hinge of banana! One of the best Carlsberg beers!

Gehbe (411) - 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.

From a bottle into a Brother Thelonious chalace. Pours cloudy peach gold with head and lace. Aroma of light malt, straw, banana. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grains, minerals, light malt, banana, citrus zest. Overall flavorful, decent.
