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.

Bottle as a gift. Hazy yellow, white foam. Sweet nose of banana, citrus and coriander. Bitter hoppy finish. Good witbier but this is not my favourite beer style.

N10 (3) - SLOVENIA - JAN 5, 2016 does not count
Aroma: plenty (too much for me) of coriander, citrus, herbs, spices Appearance: golden, hazy, though not as white as some other witbiers, no head whatsoever, little sparkling Taste: citrus and coriander upfront, not too sweet Palate: medium body, average carbonation (wish it had more), long citrusy finish Overall: Nice wit, although the coriander was too upfront for me, average IMO

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A hazy pale golden beer with a spicy lemon and vanilla flavour followed by a sweet, creamy fruity, yeasty finish. Nice.

apickles (377) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Light golden and hazy in the glass. Tiny cream head around the edge of the glass. Wheaty and sour on the nose, intensely wheaty flavour with some bacon. No wheaty aftertaste but overall very tasty.

Hamirubi (405) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2015
Sample from a 33cl bottle (26 IX 2015), shared with De Meetjeslandse Bierproevers. This golden to orange coloured strong ale comes with a white collar on top of the hazy brew. The malt flavours hay and lemon, yet the yeast has some unpleasant dirt and dust notes. Maybe some stable too: The typical ’t IJ aroma. This fits the wheat beer identity just fine. It is medium sweet and medium bitter, which is quite well balanced. The taste outsprints the aroma, with lots of wheat or cereal grain in the mouthfeel. This is a quite strange ’t IJ wheat beer, yet a must try.
