BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Netherlands

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Hazy yellow colour, small head that fades soon,. leaving some lace. Smell is very faint, some tones of spices, banana, coriander. Medium to full palate. Taste has a noticeable citric tone that is not present in the smell. Spices, banana, coriander, clove. Good.
