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.

Alcohol percentage: 6,5%
Drinking temperature: 6 – 8 graden

  1. tasted this one as part of the tasting board in the original brewery in amsterdam.
    it’s got to be one of the best beers i have ever tasted.
    should’ve bought a few bottles to carry home with me.

    I found this beer on my last day in Amsterdam, the best beer I’ve ever tasted. Shame it’s so difficult to get over here in the Uk. Hopefully I will be tasting this again soon when back in the Dam

  3. I’m a local from Amsterdam. I love beer, and I can say this with a hand on my heart and swear that this is far out the best wheat beer I’ve ever had.

        I would have the same comment. I tasted the beer and live in the US and would love to order some. Perhaps time to reconsider?

        I tasted the beer as well and live in the US. I would love to order some. Please reconsider your shipping policy!

  5. I also am from the US and loved this beer. I wish it was able to be shipped overseas. 🙁

    • Same here. So sad, I’ve been looking for months trying to figure out how to order some. But now I found these comments and I’m very disappointed.

  6. I discovered this beer on my first trip to Amsterdam a few years back and it is now the only beer I want to drink…ever! Hands down the the best beer I have ever tasted. Please consider shipping overseas, you’d make a fortune!

  7. Yes please ship to US! I drank this all over Amsterdam!

  8. Currently finished my 2nd bottle while at the Five Flies restaurant. Quite excellent beer all around. I’m a wit fan and agree with previous posts that this would be an excellent export. Cheers to your brewery!
