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.

Lilja (2124) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2015
Smak och doft av humle, vete, koriander i mängder, örter med toner av banan, citrus och citron. En aning kvalmig av för mycket koriander. Fin sötma och beska.

Geiserich (3696) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle from saveur-biere: Aroma is a bit shy with fruitiness, spices, some banana. Very hazy, pale yellow color, small white head. Well balanced flavor with oranges, banana, spices, pepper, coriander, herbal hops. More hopped the common witbeers, quite nice.

Bottle. Cloudy off white pour with a thin fizzy white head. Aroma of biscuits, yeast, lemongrass, bananas, cloves and bread. Light to medium body with a slightly sweet finish. Very drinkable, good but not great.

Schöne goldene Farbe, die typischen Weissbiernoten Nelke und Banane werden nur zart angehaucht, dafür stärkere Zitrusnote. Feines Witbier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33 cl bottle @ home. Hazy yellow beer, white head. Strong, fruity aroma, citrus and lemon. Taste is likewise, with some spices. Rather dry palate.

freretoc (1128) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUN 14, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, couleur blanche, mousse et effervescence moyenne. Une bière avec une attaque sur le blé, le pain blanc et la levure. Une blanche basique mais agréable !

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Tipico color dorado turbio ligeramente ocre, con menos espuma de lo habitual del estilo. Aroma fresco y citrico. Muy buen sabor, algo más dulce que la media, pero muy equilibrado y con cierta complejidad: limon, especias, malta. Carbonatacion media alta y buena textura. Buen final. Alcohol perfectamente camuflado. Refrescante y bebible. Notable.

Vells (1000) - Riga, LATVIA - JUN 5, 2015
Very well balanced wit, quite standard but bold. Nice fruitiness, banana mixed with orange and lemon, coriander. Moderate sweetness with light bitterness. Nothing complex here, but great hq thirst quencher
