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.

.33l botte in Best. Hazy yellow beer woth frothy white head. Nose is grain and hop. Taste is a surprising combination between fresh and bitter. Palate is medium thick. Carbonation is medium. Fine beer.

Gedronken tijdens fietstocht bij de brouwerij zelf op een heel druk terras. Voor een wit bier, niet verfrissend genoeg. Bleek ook iets te zwaar in alcohol. Voor een andere gelegenheid misschien geschikter, nu niet het juiste bier.

Jmkraan (1) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2017 does not count
I find it to bitter for a white beer. Not something for a warm sunny day. The appearance is good, it is available in a lot of supermarkets today.

330 ml bottle. Pours a yellow gold with moderate head. Aromas of lemon, coriander and wheat. Flavors same though a bit waxy and earthy. Nice enough.

Bottle at home, hazy white, medium head. Aroma is wheat, citrus, spice, yeast. Taste is the same, little bit of sour. not bad.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2017 Tap @ Café ’t Molentje. Licht geurend maar gelukkig geen overheersende citroen lucht. Mooie licht troubel kleurtje. Fris met vrij subtiele smaak van citroen. Je proeft bitterheid en heel beetje zuur met koriander in een verrassend volle nasmaak. Een van de betere witbieren maar wel met een iets hoger alchohol percentage. Hou daar rekening mee als je op een heet terras in de zon drinkt ;-)

Gedronken met Peter, typisch witbier, licht van alcohol, tikje kruidig en duidelijke citroensmaak, koriander, heeft ver iets weg van Karmeliet

Ferris (15248) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2017
