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.

Piana bardzo intensywna, średnio-pęcherzykowa, gęsta i plastyczna. Właściwie w całości oblepia szkło.Barwa pomarańczowa, piwo jest wyraźnie mętne. W zapachu dominują nuty przyprawowe, kolendra i delikatne pszeniczne kojarzące się z hefewaizenem (banany). W tle ostre nuty drożdżowe, a po ogrzaniu czuć lekki alkohol. W aromacie możemy wyczuć także, delikatnie kwaśne nuty owocowe (jabłka) i octowe. Mam nadzieję, że nie jest to wynik zepsucia. Piwo jest pełne i lekko oleiste. Początek to słodka zbożowość pokrywana pieprzowymi i ziołowymi posmakami i wyraźną goryczką, lekko alkoholową. Finisz drożdżowy i lekko rozgrzewający.

Echt een lekker witbier wat heel gemakkelijk weg drinkt. Volgens de beschrijving zit er koriander in maar die proef ik gelukkig niet ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 ml bottle
Clear straw yellow beer with white head. Murky with sediment. Aroma has coriander, pineapple, vanilla and Belgian yeast. Flavor has yeast and coriander. Palate is medium full with quite heavy carbonation. Finish has quite mild bitterness. Aftertaste has coriander, citrus, fruits and yeast. A witbier on the heavier side. I would like it to be more refreshing, even if it meant less body. Still pretty good.

0,33 l bottle. Pours a orange yellow coloured beer. Taste is sour with some banaan sweet and a hint of bitter. Fine white beer for your average summer day.

kappldav123 (5336) - GERMANY - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts strong, malty, light sourish notes of lemon, modest salty. Finish a bit alcoholic. Okay.

obe83 (75) - Livorno, ITALY - NOV 25, 2014
blanche in pieno stile di un giallo pallido torbo con una bellissima schiuma alta persistente. Al naso la speziatura con il coriandolo esplode perfettamente ottimamente bilanciata con sentori agrumati. Solo nel finale un eccesso di lievito sciupa un filo il buonissimo aroma. In bocca si ritrovano gli stessi sapori annusati ma stavolta prevale il sentore citrico sulla speziatura che la rendono fresca e di una facilità di beva entusiasmante. Corpo di giusta presenza e i 6,5% vol nemmeno sentiti. Strabuona!
