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.

brokensail (15468) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
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.

toscanoigor (82) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - JUN 14, 2016
Cerveja de um amarelo vívido, atípico para o estilo. Muita formação de espuma, que rapidamente se ajeita em uma fina camada. Aroma de trigo, levedura, um toque cítrico, coentro. O paladar segue o aroma, sem muitas surpresas. É uma cerveja refrescante, boa de beber, mas longe de ser fantástica.

Een heel behoorlijk witbier. Duidelijke tonen van Citroen, zacht in koolzuur en makkelijk drinkbaar. Lekker smaakje, niet te slap.

Gangstergafje (593) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2016
The beer looks nice. The color of the brew is golden yellow, a bit pale. The beer has a slight cloudiness. The beer has a pale, almost white glow. On top of the beer, there is a small layer of soft white foam. The bulk collapses, to leave only a thin drape of foam. The smell of the beer is nice. It is a typical witbier smell. I smell lovely citrus aromas, lemon zest and lemon with aromas of coriander. I also smell some almonds and alcohol. Its a lovely smell, better than most witbieren. It has a lot more aromas, more depth and more its more distinguished. It’s lovely. Sweet, with a nice bitter and fresh sour twist. The taste of the beer is nice aswel. The taste also has delicious flavors of coriander, lemon zest, citrus fruits and almonds. The balance is perfect. Sweet and sour citrus fruits with a slight bitterness, spicy coriander, some bitter hops. It’s lovely, one of the better witbieren around. The beer has a nice carboxylation. Its just perfect.

Zlotta (1585) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2016
0.33 l bottle at ’Café Lux’, best before March 2017. Hazy, golden yellow with a white head. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy aroma of clove, some licorice root, a bit of banana and hints of vanilla and citrus. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy taste of clove, some banana, bit of vanilla, citrus and licorice root, followed by a short, slightly bitter, yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Okay, but I do not really like the spiced beers from ’t IJ.

Bijl (119) - 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.
