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 brewerys classics.

Wonderful on tap in the windmill brewery: Malty with raisons and also hoppy aroma and flavor. Nice amber body with hints of orange and a diminishing head. Fizzy carbonation, fullmouth and crisp. Weeh, balanced, this beer hits the spot!

Darker in color than the other t IJ beers, but this lacks the sweet, syrupiness of the delicious t IJ Struis. A touch of sourness adds complexity. Good, but short of great.

Strange bitter-sweet flavour, i got heaps of citrus in there, also a bit tart and acidic, i liked it, but had a slightly off flavour.

Very good double ale. I liked the thick head on the beer. It tastes like raisins and vanilla. Very malt-like aftertaste. Excellent brew.

Strange brew. A lot of different flovors going on. Kettle corn with a twist... Sweet, butter, citrus. Some do not blend well.

Medium-dark cloudy brown with good, lasting, creamy light tan foam. Not much aroma. Some sourness and fruit suggesting grapefruit, some malt sweetness. Im not getting any Brett. A mild soft hop finish. Vielen dank to Pivo.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2003 20-04-2003 re-rate: Although still a very good beer I discovered a lot of other flavors. The iron was gone and instead prune was all over it. The flemish brown like flavors were gone as well. It's sweeter and better hopped. 03-03-2002, 4: Iron, light tart aroma. Clear, brown, light brown frothy lasting head, good lacing. Sweet, moderate full, hops, light iron taste. Bit horseblanket in the finish as well as light bitterness, but longlasting. Tastes like a flemish brown (red) to me.

Brown, cloudy color is inviting. Im getting buttered popcorn in the nose, with a little sugar. A full malty taste has hints of chocolate. Not for the weak at heart. I should mention that I sampled this at the t Ij brewery and it was delicious. (Be sure to get there early enough to grad a table. TIP: take the #10 tram there).

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 19, 2002
Murky dark copper with suspended yeast and chunks on the bottom. Thinnish light tan head. Light but steady carbonation. Aroma of oranges, caramel rice cakes and what appears to smell like an empty fish tank (moldy fish smell). Initial impression - A dark Saison. Wacky burnt steak flavor, some tartness and savory herbiness. Yeast pour is dark (just sits on the top). Fairly mellow, lightly bubbly. Thick maltiness emerges as does a roasted aroma. Farmy and yeasty though. Sourish lip smacking sweetness. Finishes chalky and hoppy, with an edge of sweetness. Strange.
