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.

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.

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
