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.

Pours a hazy golden color, topped with decent white head. The aroma is mild but you can easily point some wheat, some yeasty smell and some spices. The taste is sweet and spicy, with some yeasty addition as well. Not my favourite.

Bottle order from Beautiful Beers online. Drunk at home on a hot Saturday evening. The strength of this beer is 7%, not 6.5%. Gorgeous gold, cloudy, with a medium-sized white head. There it the normal witbier clove/herb on the nose, but also caramel/toast malt, as well as a gorgeous yeasty note. Lovely taste as well: a warming spicy sweetness with a hint of bitterness in the finish. You can certainly taste the alcohol. This is a lovely beer from a cool brewery.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 Mooi witbier. Kleine witte schuimkraag en een zeer troebel bier. Een mild zachte smaak met tonen van deeg en op de achtergrond wat citroenschil.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ the Marqt supermarket, Den Haag. Slightly hazy golden yellow with a white head. Wheaty citrus aroma with some banana. It still is a Belgian white but leans also towards a hefe-weizen. Nice beer.

@ Röhällavägen. Bottle (330 ml) from Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Fruity and quite spicy with wheaty and yeasty notes, some acidic notes as well, a bit too fizzy, medium body and an oily texture. The finish is dry and bitter with wheaty and yeasty notes. A really nice Witbier.

mooi en toepasselijk wit etiket. gouden, schuimig witte kraag en oogt licht wazig, aroma is enkel wat tarwe, citrus en zoetigheid. smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig bitter, tarwe, citus, maar de stevige tarwe/zoete combinatie licht romig in de mond. Ben eigenlijk niet zo’n liefhebber van de witbieren stijl, maar deze is goed te doen.

A hazy golden beer with a bubbly white head. Nose is quite spicy as expected. Taste is clove, citrus, mostly spicy. Decent but not outstanding witbier.

Tasty beer, especially for the style. Yeasty body of barley and wheat, combined with a spicy and fruity flavor. Good.

Heldere citroengele kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig, zoetig, mout. Smaakt, fruitig, hop. Iets bitter.
