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.

Amber in color with an off-white head. Sweet bread and toffee malt notes with a fair amount of brown sugar. There’s a mild clove spiciness and a bit of vanilla. Some mild chocolate on the flavor to go along with the toffee and toasted bread. A decent amount of banana, mild dark fruit notes, and some spice and yeast flavors as well.

0,33l fles in Amsterdam bij ene avondwinkel vandaan. Kastanje bruin met een crème kraag. Smaak heeft wat notigs en ijzer, verder wat vlak. Geen hoogvlieger.

Bottle at home from Jumbo supermarket. Had it before but apparently never rated. Near clear dark brown pour with thin bubbly offwhite head. Smells yeasty and sweet. Sweet toasted caramel and choco malts. Fudge, brown sugar caramel, dades, banana, butterscotch, IJ yeast. Over medium sweet, light bitter. Medium body, soft carbonation. Smooth body with a light chalky grain in the texture. Finish is long and bittersweet, butterscotch.

Had my first Natte about 30 years ago, shortly after the brewery’s opening. I didn’t have this in my RB life though, until now. 33 cl bottle @ De Waaghals, A’dam. Mostly clear ruby brown. Light beige head, dense, with good retention. Aroma’s: sweet, fruit, yeasty, a bit banana. Flavor is moderate sweet with light bitterness. Medium bodied. Finishes yeasty, moderate bitter. Still quite nice, but of course I liked it a lot more 30 years ago.
