Svyturys Baltas

This is a 5.0% ABV baltas kvietinis alus, or white unfiltered wheat ale. It is from Svyturys of Lithuania. The beers pours a hazy golden and peach in color. There is a tall head of tight and thick white foam. It is reminiscent of the foam of shaken egg whites. The aroma is fruity and yeasty over toasted wheat. The taste is spicy, lots of clove, toasted wheat and tangy yeast. It is highly and finely carbonated. It is worth trying if you like white ales. However, I am not sure it stands up to the better Belgian and American white ales.
