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.

nathanvc (640) - 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.

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

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 Lekker fris en zacht van smaak. De koriandersmaak die sommigen aangeven te proeven, haal ik er niet uit.

MartR (356) - Aespa, ESTONIA - AUG 17, 2017
Excellent looks! Pours up with a bright golden color and a thick creamy white head. Distinctive sweet wheat beer taste adding spices and esters in the finish. Perfectly balanced, medium bodied with a full round palate. Not too much attention put to the esters, a very clean beer with no sharp edges. A lot sweeter than most wit´s, but again as I said- very well balanced. A good beer for sure.
