On tap at t'IJ brewery, Amsterdam.
Hazy dirty wheat with crusty white froth.
Waxy lemon skin with some flowers on the nose.
Sour grain, lemon cough drop plus a big yeasty hit.
Grapefruit peel finish and drying bitter linger.
More chew than expected, lt-med, round.
Lots of hops, lots of yeast. Because the malts are lighter than other t'IJ beers, this actually comes across as among their most bitter. Hopping is Waimea, Cascade and Chinook; not sure I'd have guessed a NZ, all its potential nuance is lost under big IBUs. And the yeast hit is heavy enough that this works more like a wit than an English blonde (as a scale).
Nevertheless, does what it says on the tin.
Serving type: on-tap
