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.

Bosskie (603) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2015
Beautiful golden hay colour, lightly opaque and with lots of column bubblies on the surface. Smell is lightly citric with cereals, white pepper and a touch of coriander. Some very subtle alcoholic fruitiness. Taste is bitter sweet. Citric with a light cherry sweetness. Very refreshing with a nice fizz. Finish is astringent but fruity. Well balanced. Slight sourness, typical of ’t Ij.

pete4999 (1265) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle from somewhere in Amsterdam. Was a great beer on a hot summer day, light yellow pour. Sweet, little bit of lemon, certainly some sort of citrus but still the classic banana flavor you’d expect. Surprisingly high alcohol content. I liked it.

Lilja (2185) - 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.
