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.

Cloudy pale straw color with a white head. Tons of coriander on the aroma along with some citrus peel, a nice bread sweetness, and some yeast. A touch of lemon in there as well. The flavor is a bit more bread/malt forward. Some nice coriander spice flavor, a light orange peel flavor and bitterness, some straw, and yeast. Quite sweet, actually.

Draft at the source. Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of spice, citrus, wheat, and possibly lemon. Taste is fruit, spice, wheat, banana notes. Almost too much spice. Okay.

Like a standard wheat beer on steroids. Slightly sweeter than most but the alcohol still remains somewhere in the background despite its strength. Nice enough but I’m not sure it’s my thing.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2016 Romige bubbel schuimkraag. Kruidig aroma dat lekker luchtig is. Enorm zacht en kruidig in de smaak. Erg aangenaam met een mooi rond geheel. Lekker verfrissend net een tikje anders dan het standaard witbier.

Ein schönes Witbier, welches in der leuchtend gelben Farbe und im Geruch als klassischer Vertreter seiner Sorte durchgehen könnte. Nach dem ersten Schluck zeigt sich, dass dieses Wit etwas aus der Rolle fällt. Die pfeffrigen Noten, und der wärmende alkoholische Körper gehen etwas Richtung klassisches belgisches blondes Triple, wenn auch die eher Witbier-typischen Aromen dominieren: Zitrus, Koriander, würzig, Banane, leicht säuerlich. Gutes Witbier aus den Niederlanden!
