From Combini. In Bavaria glass. After dinner. High carbonation, zesty and a bit soapy, funk and metallic. Pleasant still. May not be the best hefe but its fine.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy amber with a moderate head that lasts a while. Yeast and banana in the nose. The mouth revels in the banana bread flavor. Yum.

1/24/16 Chicago (500 ml bottle poured in two phases into tulip glass). Golden cloudy pour, with generous foamy white head, heavy carbonation and generous lacing. Sweat fruity wheat yeast aroma, with hints of citrus and plums. Pleasant tastes include citrus wheat, very crisp and clean, solid carbonation felt, though somewhat smooth going down. Nice, enjoyable Hefe, and I look forward to my next bottle.

If someone took three-fours of a pint glass and filled it with a decent hefe, then filled the remainder of said glass with a sweeter / tarter, (like something from Lindemans or even a New Glarus Raspberry Tart) the resulting combination would probably taste similar to this beer. Better than average, though definitely not amazing, I would certainly order one of these during the summer time if I came across it. This is probably my first time sampling any brew from the eastern European country of Lithuania, and I'm glad I picked it up.

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.

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!

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!

84/100
