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.

Thanks Fran for sharing! Misty yellow-golden body. Aroma.. lime, coriander, soft. Light taste, fresh, coriander and lime, perfumey, ends slightly yeasty. This is definitely a quality Belgian Wit, no doubts about it, even if my description is vague.

Espuma blanca y compacta que se mantiene cremosa, color amarillo con tonos dorados, se aprecia bastante el brotar constante de las burbujas, aroma cítrico y fresco en nariz, sabor también fresco, se aprecia la carbonatación y finaliza con un regusto dulzón.

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.
