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.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Bottle @ Fico Urban Italian, Utrecht. Citrus, freshness and actually some thickness make this witbier a really good one

Slightly hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is of yeasts, malts, spices like coriander and cloves and some ripe bananas. Medium sweet and a nice mild bitter linger. Body is medium, fuller than I'm used to with this style, nice!!!

Fris, fruitig en fraai biertje. Helder bier waar de zon mooi doorheen straalt. IJ like! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lupulus13 (42) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2017
Bottle from Ekoplaza. Cloudy straw yellow with brief white head. Mild carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Citrus and coriander with bitter notes on aftertaste. Quite nice

nathanvc (766) - Brugge, BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle from an Albert Heijn in Ghent. Pours clear pale yellow with a small, frothy, white head. The aroma contains wheat, barley, bread, lemon, banana, spices, even honey or sugar, and hops. It tastes light to medium bitter, light to medium sweet and very light sour; long spicy finish. Medium body, slick/oily texture, fizzy carbonation. Rather unusual.

GvanGool (121) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2017
This beer has nice golden colour with solid and dense head. The aroma is nice, litle citrus. Taste is little on the sweet side. Quite low on carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
