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.

This beer is from Lithuania. As a Lithuanian i strongly can say this beer is not that good, but it's average. The brewerie which makes this beer is the biggest and most massive brewery in Lithuania. They don't really pay attention to the beer quality anymore. There are their new small brewerie which makes experimental beer (thank god) and their wheat beer is really amazing. I will review it later.

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.

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.

Svyturys.

Soft hazy yellow color with a rigorous visible carbonation. Head, meager but retained at a short height.

Musty and wheaty with a tang and light citrus. A little stanky with age, as the malt composition is thinner and falling apart.

Harshly wheaty with a papery tang. Lemon is very light and probably has been reduced. Light caramel syrup taints the crispness. Not much left.

Crackling medium carbonation. Medium-light body with no real fascination.

Boo-hoo to this poor showing. Not after two delicious wittes already tonight.
