The first beer to come out of our vats, back in 1985, making it the classic beer of Brouwerij ‘t IJ. It is a ‘tripel’, the category reserved for the stronger, blonde beers in Belgian tradition. Zatte more than lives up to expectations in this respect. It is a full-bodied, golden beer with a scent of fresh fruit mingled here and there with a hint of grain. The flavour is slightly sweet, ending with a fine, dry aftertaste. A delicious beer that can be enjoyed in all seasons.

@ Nedre Mölla 9/7-14. Fruity and yeasty with some spicy notes, light barnyard notes, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and fruity.

markschiedon (207) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2014
Drinking from a 33cl bottle. A hoppy, friety aroma. Perfume also. The unclear orange beer has a medium white head. A full bodied fruity taste. Medium carbonated.

Licht troebel bier met een kleine schuimkraag. Smaken van gedroogd fruit. Ruikt licht naar abrikozen. Drinkt heel erg lekker weg.

massingasetta (244) - München, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2014
Dark brown heavy beer that is astoundingly drinkable. Best drunk in a beer glass resembling a wine glass.

mutz (598) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2014
Troebelgoud, kraag verdwijnt tot een laagje op het bier. Ruikt naar gist, abrikoos. Smaakt idem, best fruitig, redelijk vol in de mond, wat zoetige afdronk. Goed te teren.

MarcoDL (2186) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2014
Tripel with a fruity and full body of yeast. The yeast itself is fruity as well. Has a candisugar sweetness, but also a slight dryness. Good.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle at Chriso. Bit of a gusher. It pours golden with a small white head. The nose is doughy, sweet, green apple, pear drops, lemon sherbet and hay. The taste is crisp, doughy, sherbet, green apple, melon, pear, earth, hay, spice and warming alcohol with a dry, sweetish finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.So-so.

On tap @ ’t IJ. Slightly hazy golden with a small ring of white foam and little lacing. Aroma is spicy (mostly cloves) with Belgian yeast, fruity notes, banana and cereals. Taste is slightly sweet and moderately spicy (again, mostly cloves) with breadied malt, fruits and grassy finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel with a spicy finish, a tad weird. Interesting take on a Tripel, but the cloves take a tad too much place and hinder the balance/drinkability. It’s still tasty though.
