COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle from Secret Santa or Local Swap. I do not remember, sorry! But thanks to you anyway. Almost clear yellow colour, short lasting white head. Aroma slightly cheesy, applish spicy trippely. Light honeyish. Taste is well balanced and surprisingly drinkable. Mostly spicy flavours, but not overwhelming. Clove, coriander. Green apple. Very good.

mariuspoenari (1311) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2016
33cl bottle. Pale yellow, with a thin white head. Smells like bitter herbs, spices, yeast. The taste follows the same note, with bitter herbal hops, spicy yeast and a (too) sweet malty backbone.

gildnerk (198) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2016
Nice beer. Bottle. Pours a medium-golden tone with an off-white head. Aromas of banana and cereal with some floral notes thrown in. Mostly hoppy-dry in taste with a bit of sweetness coming through. Extra appearance point for that wonderful ’t IJ branding.

Used to be really good and one of my favorite beers. Formally turbid which contributed to the taste. I think they changed the brewingproces or time since the brewery grew bigger and more commercial.

patrick767 (3951) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Pours a hazy yellow-orange and has a very yeasty aroma. It has a sweet, spicy flavor that’s very characteristic of the style. There’s a touch of mild hops bitterness. Dry finish. Very good example of a tripel.
