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.

Bijl (151) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2016
Amsterdamse Witbier kleur is Goud iets donker geel, troebel met een redelijk schuimkraag die wel snel inzakt. Aroma van Tarwemout, citrus, gras. Smaak: Tarwemouten, citroen, een lichte prikkeling van de koriander en een licht zuurtje. Redelijke nabitter... niet zoet. Body en koolzuur zijn medium mondgevoel is romig. Mooi zomers Witbier..... smaakt naar meer.

Ysok02 (850) - MOns, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2016
Robe blonde, trouble, mousse peu abondante. Nez typé sur des notes de céréales, de coriandre, fine note de citron, pointe levurée. Belle attaque explosive, une très belle bulle et une finale raffraîchissante et équilibrée. De nouveau une belle blanche de soif, plus complexe que les précédentes.
