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.

hazy brown with strong tan head. to call it a dubble is questionable, tastes more like a flemish sour with a sour nose with a mild malty flavor with some sourness to finish off, an enjoyable if not extraordinary beer

Bottle into L’Abbaye du Val-Dieu Trappist glass. This cellared bottle was from Sept. 2002. A geyser upon opening. Pours a customary for the style cloudy yet rich orange-brown with a rocky, dusty tan head. Slight thick lacing as glass empties. The aroma was sweet and spicy. Very pleasant and a nice start. Initial flavors are punchy: some sweet with the cherries mentioned by some, plus a definite high note of sour. Not precisely sour, but quite an unexpected taste for the style. Overall, a thin sweetness spars with the sours and tarts and brett, etc. mentioned by others. I have a feeling this has aged with some authority and attitude. I’d be eager to try it fresh, so to speak. This was a challenging drink. Not because it wasn’t interesting, but because so much conflict of flavor and off the rails for the style action was taking place.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Draught @ ’t Ij, Amsterdam. Hazy brown. Dried fruits and caramelised malts with mild brambly hops and light tart yeastiness. Pleasantly drinkable.

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy deep orange to brown with a lacing white head. Again an almost gushing opening. Orange fruity and light brett-ish aroma. Fruity flavour with a distinct dry almost woody brett note. Sweet caramel malt flavour. Smooth yeasty note into the finish where the brett flavour seem to let go.

daniellerose7 (119) - new york, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Notes of fruit, woody toffee. A slightly displeasing palate... This isn’t what I expected at all... I kept thinking that maybe I had gottena bad bottle until I read other reviews. It isn’t by any means "bad," but I had high hopes. Not worth the $7.50.

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 (958) - 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
