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.

Light brown colour, tan head. Aroma has red fruits. Flavour has malts, red fruits and some candy. Weak.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Pours a fogged brown. Nose is just like pineapple juice right out of the can. Slight funky cherry wood there as well. Reminds me of a flanders…hmmm…and maybe that is what this is. I am writing this before checking the style. Flavor is that woody cherry character. The wood stays very prominent and leaves a lasting impression on the palate. Feel has a lot of carbonation, but not overly done. Liquid is well bodied. Very drinkable, but again with this brewery: worth the price? Seems a bit high to me. Could be just where I bought it though.

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2008
Thanks to SoLan! An orangish/ruby body, craggy yellow-tan head. Nose is pie cherry funk, light citrus, toasty malt. Flavor is lighter cherry pie, medium toasty malt, light wheat, some caramel. Finish is too thin, empty.

TrefwoordPunk (864) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2007
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clousy amber with a medium tan head and a smell of citrus and grapes. Taste is complex, spice, caramel, citrus, coffee, roasted malts, sweet malts and yeast. Nice finish. Very atypical, sour and spicey, for a dubbel, but really drinkable

ukoolaid (578) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle @ ABC Upstairs. Pours a dark amber with tan head. Aroma is sweet with fruit floral notes. Flavor is fairly bitter and sour for a dubble. Different, but I like it.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle. Very acidic nose, light cherry. Cloudy light brown with minimal head. Flavor is nothing like the nose. Only a touch of acidity, more sweetness, can‘t nail down the fruit. Palate is full bodied but very smooth.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2007
[Sampled in 2005, present from den Blå Øl.] Not as good as told. Should be better than Westmalle dubbel, Jens said, but I found it very highcarbonated and somewhat harsh and woody. But maybe it was a bad bottle.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Pours a bubbly amber color with a thick, creamy light tan head. Smells of some sweet malts, mild candy sugar and some yeast. The taste is slightly sweet, some nice spice comes out in the flavor too. Definitely malty, but not syrupy at all. Pretty crisp and clean. A little candy sugar and dark fruits are detectable as well. Not incredibly interesting, but very drinkable.

clear dark amber. nice tan head, sweet fig aroma, great big body, rich malt flavor, lots of ripe fruit character, very low bitterness in the finish, the yeast swirl adds some very nicy spicy character,
