COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly called ’t IJ Scharrel IJwit A full-bodied, Amsterdam wheat beer that is dangerously ‘moreish’. Slightly cloudy, it has a beautiful golden colour and a soft, foamy head. When we brew IJwit, we use wheat malt as well as barley malt, which is also how the beer gets its name. The wheat malt gives the beer a delightful, fresh flavour, and the addition of coriander and lemon during the brewing process produces a rich aroma of banana, citrus and spices. Topped off by a fine, slightly sweet aftertaste, IJwit is a delicious thirst-quencher.

Hazy yellow colour, small head that fades soon,. leaving some lace. Smell is very faint, some tones of spices, banana, coriander. Medium to full palate. Taste has a noticeable citric tone that is not present in the smell. Spices, banana, coriander, clove. Good.

Lilja (2130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2015
Smak och doft av humle, vete, koriander i mängder, örter med toner av banan, citrus och citron. En aning kvalmig av för mycket koriander. Fin sötma och beska.

Schöne goldene Farbe, die typischen Weissbiernoten Nelke und Banane werden nur zart angehaucht, dafür stärkere Zitrusnote. Feines Witbier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

freretoc (1136) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUN 14, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, couleur blanche, mousse et effervescence moyenne. Une bière avec une attaque sur le blé, le pain blanc et la levure. Une blanche basique mais agréable !
