COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is a ok Belgian Strong Ale. Sweet, fruity, and sour. Crisp, clean, and smooth finish.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2003
Brown coloured. Slightly fruity and sweet brew. Rather watery texture. The finish is too short and thin.

TheBeerGod (5342) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Pours a nice reddish brown with a creamy medium tan head. Nose is spice with fruit. The taste has some light citrus notes along with caramel, cinnamon, and chocolate. The aftertaste lingers a bit with some bitter fruit notes. Good beer, though.

madsberg (10459) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2003
Bottled: Clear dark amber coloured. Huge light beige head. Malt, spices, citrus in the aroma. Caramel, spices and malt in the flavour, that has some fruity accents as well. Last medium long on the palate

argo0 (11653) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Minimal beige head over a murky brown body. Aroma is strange: very sweet, floral, herbal, light mint, fruity, metallic. Taste is molasses sweet, light chocolate, some fruity. Finishes herbal with mild bitterness. Medium-full watery body.

pilsnerrogge (2537) - Finspång, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2003
Dark amber, very cloudy. Rich head. Fruity chocolate aroma. Well-balanced fruity flavour that turns into an yeast-dry, somewhat sourish finish. Nice beer.

MarkR (68) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2003 Bottle Pours a vibrant, reddish-orange with little clarity. A light tan head starts out small and stays that way. Nice retention and lacing. Really strange aroma of grape and an acidic, sour note that reminds me of Orval...watered down Orval, that is. Some horse blanket and farmhouse notes. Lots of acidic sourness, along with a small dose of fruit. It tries to balance itself with a hop bitterness, but falls short. Comes across as a watered down Orval, with a big dose of weirdness thrown in. Ends with a really faint smokey flavor. Thin in flavor. A bit watery on the palate with a soft, round mouthfeel. Finishes a bit on the dry side. It's Belgian in character, but that doesn't neccessarily make for a good beer. I'm not sure what the brewer was going for here... On the other hand, this is from Amsterdamn, and they smoke a lot of interesting stuff there... Since this bottle is just past the recommended date, I would say it's age has diminished it, but I'd bet this stuff is just as bad (and strange) when fresh.

haukur (1344) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 16, 2003
well, nothing special going on here, looked very nice when poured into the T ij glas, nice dark ruby color, and a big head. Taste was very watery and lacked all complexity ...

skortila (4625) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2003
Good aroma, malty, sweet and fruity. Looks are great; Cloudy, brown coloured, lasting, creamy offwhite head. Taste is initially malty and fruity, beacomes more bitter and metallic in the end. Pitty!

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2003
The aroma is sweet rich in fruit notes where plum dominates. The color is an unclear brown/orange and it has an OK but disappearing head. The flavor is of plums, black currant, and other fruits combined with a dryness. It ends on a woody note. It has an OK palate.
