L: Pours hazy straw gold under a 1” white foam cap that quickly collapses to a thin film that produces very little lace. S: clove on the nose with some banana T: The palate could be a sign of age with thin, muted wheat flavors, stale bread, some lemon, banana and clove with hints of wet cardboard and a tart finish. F: Creamy, medium light body, above average fizzy carbonation. O: This beer gives me a headache.

Look; pours cloudy golden colour, head is good stocks around shortly though. Plenty of carbonation, loads of bubbles rising from the bottom.

Smell ; lovely distinct yeasty Smell of Weizen with a light fresh note of citrus.

Taste ; a lot more crisp and fresh than a usual Weizen I've drank, plesent refreshing, great on a summer day, light citrus notes

Feel ; thick and tasteful, really nice, goes down smooth with a crisp aftertaste, sits heavy in the gut though.

Overall really impressed by this lituania beer, I will be buying more!

3.44/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a hazy, dull orange with a white head that fizzes away almost as quickly as it's poured, leaving behind a thin, broken layer of suds and a thin ring around the edge. Small, spotty lacing with poor stick.

Smell - Yeasty bubblegum and banana with hints of clove.

Taste - Follows the nose. Yeasty character that hits on predominant banana and bubblegum flavors. Faint clove spice.

Mouthfeel - Light, watery body with low carbonation. Smooth and drinkable in the least, but easily the weakest aspect of this brew.

Overall - The label might say White, but this is a classic hefeweizen through and through, and a fair one at that.

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.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy dark golden color with white hues and a 1 inch head. Smell is very spicy, some citrus. Taste is citrus up front, considerable corriander is in there, good flavor. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer.

A - Very pale and cloudy
S - Fruity smell
T - Tastes fruity, just like the smell
M - In the mouth has a milky texture, not very сarbonated.
O - I guess Hefeweizens are not my favorite style of beer, I prefer blacks stronger ones, but this one was ok.

Poured into a 0.5 ltr glass. A light straw yellow color, very cloudy with sediment at the bottom. A very foamy 4 finger head. Lemon and coriander stood out the most. On the sweet side but still one of my favorites.

A: The beer is quite hazy light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with an eighth of a finger high bright white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of bananas are present in the nose along with notes of wheat and hints of orange peels and lemon citrus.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of bananas and has notes of wheat plus slight bits of sweetness. Only faint bits of spices are perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: To me, this beer seems to me more like it's a hefeweizen compared to a witbier. I wouldn't consider this to be refreshing, but it's quite easy to drink.

Beautiful, cream and blonde with a sparkling merengue-like head that leaves sheets of lace on the glass. Coriander and sour orange with over ripe banana and lemon zest. Surprisingly delicious example of the style, spicy clove and nutmeg with a lemon curd and crackery dry quality. Medium light bodied with sharp carbonation. I admit that Wit is not my favorite style but this is a textbook example of what the best of the style has to offer.

I have to say that I am kind of anxious to try this one. I like the price point on the Svyturys line of bottles and this is one of the last that I have not reviewed.

I rolled the bottle around on the countertop to put anything that may have settled back into suspension and it worked, but I had to pour very gently as it produced a massive two-plus fingers of dense, bone-white foam with excellent retention. Color was a mighty cloudy golden-yellow, kind of like freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Nose was very spicy initially, underlain with banana esters. Mouthfeel was slightly thin with a metallic tang accompanying the spice and banana on the tongue. Finish was semi-dry with the spiciness taking hold, but I could not shake that metallic taste that was also very present. It may have been a case of I got what I paid for. Oh well. I have had better from this company, so I do not want to put you off of trying others of their beers, but not this one.

This is a phenomenal wheat beer. My amateur palate ranks it with any single fermentation Reinheitsgebot wheat beer. Unfiltered, it may not contain the same sediment as a Weinstephan or Franziskan, but it's up there. Great flavor, heavy palate, nose, cloudy light. Flavor is a bit sweet, but tolerable.

Cloudy orange coloucir. Beaautiful big head with great retention. Very carbonated.

Bready yeast aroma. Orange and spices also make themselves know. Actually reminds me of a Belgian tripel in aroma!

The tasteof this wheat beer is very impressive. Bready yeastiness udnerpins orange zest and herbal spiciness. Very full flavoured with a very vibrant mouthfeel cleansing the palate after each sip.

Overall, a surprisingly tasty wheat beer. I will have to compare this to Weihenstephaner hefe which I haven't had in while. From my memeory this is every bit as good!

Color: light yellow, straw, cloudy. Foam slightly yellowish, quite sizable. Aroma: soaked wheat, damp basement, honey or overripe bananas, a little bit of coriander. Taste: Well, unfortunately too sweet. It is clear wheat, lemon, orange and lots of honey sweetness. Again, as in the odor gently coriander. Gentian very delicate, but at the finish. Saturation average. Alcohol is not perceptible.
