Texels claim that their Skuumkoppe (literally scum or foam top) is "the first top-fermented dark wheat [Donker Wit] craft beer brewed in the Netherlands." The brewer uses malted barley and wheat grown on Texel, hops, roasted malted barley and dune-filtered water. No herbs or spices are added.

Skuumkoppe is unfiltered and bottle-fermented so expect a small amount of yeast sediment in the bottle. The beer will gain additional creaminess if you gently roll the bottle horizontally in your hands to mix proteins and yeast before opening it.
