If you did not know what you were tasting but knew a little about beer you would immediately recognize this coming from t IJ. Another winner, plain and simple. At the Noord Hollands Bierfestival in Alkmaar.

PotjeBier (1419) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2013
33 cl bottle from De Bierkoning. Golden color, hazy. Dense, rocky, white head with good retention. Aromas: typical IJ yeastiness, aroma (wet/fresh?) hops, fruity, some malty sweetness. Flavor is medium bitter with a light malty sweet backbone. Body is medium. Finishes yeasty and with a nice bitterness. Seems t IJ is back on track.

MrHangover (2140) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle @ de paas. Pours a slight cloudy blonde beer with a small white head. Aroma very yeasty, floral and has definitely some malty notes. Flavor has touches of yeast, the IJ flavors are present, as well as a very flowery, spring feeling flavor. Quite nice, could have used some more body, but it is ok like this as well.

goozen (2721) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2013

supermeniscus (39) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2013
UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Re-rated. Bottle bought at Schiphol airport (sort of impulse buy) I?ve tried a few of the IJ beers and this one was probably the most enjoyable. Has a yeasty floral smell. I love hazy appearance so this one?s looking good. Taste is dough upfront then fruit and vegatable followed by a short-lived hoppy aftertaste. Finishes surprisingly clean and refreshing. Therefore I drank this one in no time at all!This is a well made beer and I reccommend trying it
