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 at home. Yellow, slightly cloudy. Nose citrus/lemon mostly. Taste citrus, hint of banana and yeast, and the typical coriander seeds. Bit more hoppy than most white beers. Very nice and fresh.

330ml bottle, thanks ShivanDragon! Hazy peach colored with one finger white head fading rather quickly. Aroma is discrete with fresh wheat tones, some fruitiness, light yeast and maybe a hint of banana. Taste is wheat, light yeast, light spiciness and maybe a light touch of citrus in the finish. The carbonation is medium and so is the mouthfeel with a distinct dryness to it.

Geel, redelijk helder bier. Aroma vsn citroen komt goed door, verder gist, mout. Licht zoet, behoorlijk waterig. Niet veel bijzonders.

ZodiacM (297) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2015
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.
