COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A beautiful hazy gold color and a head that seems to climb to the top of the glass on the sides. Lemony and citrusy with a nice dryness in the end. This stuff is silky, incredibly balanced and smooth. Had it fresh on tap from the brewery – what a taste sensation!

Excellent beer allthough not a classic white. Has a softer heavier but pleasant flavor. Less grainy taste that belgina whites.

Nugget (30) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2006
This is the best witbier I’ve ever had. The alcohol adds a lot of body which most witbiers lack. The aroma and flavor are phenomenal, very candy-like (reminds me of grape Jolly Ranchers). I’m usually afraid of the massive amounts of sediment in ’t IJ beers but I dumped everything in my glass this time and it was a very rewarding experience. Definitely worth seeking this one out.

Pours a beautiful cloudy yellow with a tall strong white head. Nose is so floral, juicy orange citrus nose with a strong corriander note. Flavor is light and refreshing, crisp in the finish with a wonderful citrus and corriander flavor. Nice little hop bit keeps it slightly bitter and refreshing. Has a slight sourness and a bit of brett taste to it.

What an awesome Belgian white. This beer was amazing. It had it all. Light yellow pour with a gorgeous haze. The aroma was full of wheat. The flavor was a heavily carbonated wheat that tickled the nose. Very good. Just overall a great witbier.

Bottle. The underdog of the night, no doubt about it. Pour has some deiment, huey yellow somewhat dark. Citrus, wheat, mild tart flavors. Incredible balance here. Nose is sharp coriander. Reminds me of Jolly Pumpkin Cala in regards to the nose. Nice alc too. Overall, Probably the best Wit I have ever tasted.

A solid wheat from Brouwerij ’t IJ. Pours golden with a decent head. Tastes dominated by wheat but there is evidence of citrus and perhaps some spice. Tried at the brewery with Erol and Paul in October, 2011.

Fruity almost blonde beer. Tastes like bananas and citrus, but very very light. Has a full feel in the mouth and tingles a tiny bit. Very very fresh and light, not very bitter. Great beer

Frothy very long lasting head, and a mild nutmeg/citrus aroma accompany the smooth and light citric flavour from this great beer. A true classic.

Átláthatatlan, sűrű, sötét sárga színe van, habja fehér, tömör, dús, igen élő és kitartó. Illata intenzíven gyümölcsös, fűszeres, belga élesztős, enyhén nedves szalmás. Ízében ott a sok fűszer, korianderes, malátás, élesztős, édeskés és mellette kellemesen fanyar és citrusos. Közepesen testes és pezsgőszerűen tele van apró kis buborékokkal, igen élő. Utóíze gyümölcsös, fűszeres, keserédes és enyhén fanyar. Nagyszerű a kategóriájában, igen üdítő, az egyik favoritom lett ebben a "témában".
