After the ‘Zatte’, this is the oldest beer from Brouwerij ‘t IJ. Natte is classed as a ‘dubbel’, a Belgian category of smooth, dark beers. Because we partly use dark malt, Natte has a reddish-brown colour and a smooth, roasted flavour with earthy tones of brown sugar, nuts and plums. Completed with slightly bitter hops, this is a nicely balanced beer and one of the brewery’s classics.

330 ml. bottle @ home. Purchased @ Albert Heijn. BBF 02/2016. Dark hazy red amber, small beige head. Nose is thick cough syrup, caramel malts, herbal, light fish guts umami, sticky, thick, herbal, estery,… Taste is metallic, fish guts, herbal, umami, honey, light bitter herbs, caramel, raisin, taste is a bit hollow, too much fish guts, umami, estery, herbal flavors for me,… Herbal, metallic bitter. Body feel rather thin & metallic. The kind of BE style brewing that I am not a fan of, it lacks a chewy malt body to balance it all, it would have worked better with a solid brown sugar / malty base.

Ik kan helaas niks over dit biertje schrijven omdat ik het in Nederland heb gedronken en geen info heb opgeschreven. Wat ik wel heb gedaan is een cijfer gegeven. Ik hoop dat ik hierdoor genoeg info voor mezelf heb creëert.

Alengrin (2872) - BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2015
Apparently the first beer from this renowned Dutch brewery, cloudy bronze with thick, yellowish white, moussy head and aroma of dried fruits, raisins, fondant, yoghurt, caramel, toasted bread, brown sugar; restrained fruity taste, sweetish with a distinct, saison-like, ’low’ sourishness, maybe the result of mild infection; malty, with dry finish of herbal hops, continuing sourishness and a faint hint of roasted bitterness. Unusual for a dubbel.

Bruinig, weinig geur. Dun schuim. Beetje licht en niet heel smaakvol. Mag niet raten van suus

Niet helemaal wat ik er van had verwacht. Wel prima bier met redelijk wat graan er in. Wel gebalanceerd maar daardoor ook niet echt spannend. @home ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
