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.

ALIBALI (224) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2016
Tolles Wit. Sehr kräftig im Geruch und auch im Trunk. Kräuter spielen ein Rolle. Klar. Nicht zu trocken ein bisschen Süße ist auch vorhanden. Und das Beste, der Nachtrunk ist schön lang und geschmacksintensiv. LÄGGER. Flasche direkt von der Brauerei in Amsterdam, 2 Euro.

anstei (890) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle. Very malty wit, almost killing it. Lots of spices, quite bitter. ABV is noticeable, but not in a particularly good way. Unbalanced.

SinH4 (2080) - Garching, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2016
Golden color with white head. Aroma is biscuity, citrusy, spicy. Taste is spices, coriander, biscuits. Foamy carbonation. Wit? Well it has the spices, but the malt base is too close to a golden ale imo.

tap at the brewery - Pours a lightly hazy straw color with a lingering white head. It has an aroma of spicy yeast and lemon. The flavor is light and sweet with citrus, banana, and spicy yeast. It’s refreshing with lively carbonation. Good wit.

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.
