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.

Thuis geschonken uit 33cl fles. Schenkt een ietwat troebel lichtgeel bier. Geuren van gist, koriander, tarwe, banaan en citroen. Dit komt ook in de smaak terug, een kruising tussen een Belgisch en Duits witbier. Smaakvol, maar witbier blijft niet mijn ding.

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.
