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.

Draught at the Belgian Beer Café Olivier (Leiden, The Netherlands). This is a true recap of the 1985 classic. A recommandation by the man behind the tap - and a good one for sure! Fruit flavours - yet no hoppy aroma’s - with some citrus tones, which made me think of a whitebeer. The nose, though very subtle, has bread and grains too. The taste has some very appreciated honey hints. The finish is sweet and reminds of the yeasts and the added spices. The mouth is rather dry. A very lovely tripel from Amsterdam.

Lekker citroenachtig geel biertje, tripel van hoge gisting en dat is te proeven..hooi? Ik ruik het niet, citroen achtig wel en een zweem van banaan.

TtV (267) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Hazy yellow golden colour with a small white head that lasts somewhat. Aroma reminds me of weizen beers, but I can sense citrus fruits and hops too. The taste starts dry and develops into a mild sweetness with a bitter undertone. The aftertaste is dry and bitter. Very nice!

Bijzondere tripel van ’t IJ. Hij ruikt wat vreemd, een geur die ik niet kan omschrijven. Maar de smaak is heerlijk. Lichte citrustonen, gist, brood en hooi. Een combinatie die in het glas prachtig werkt. Een heerlijke Amsterdamse tripel. En laat je niet op het verkeerde been zetten door wat je ruikt.

Lyst og uklart med høyt skum. Lukter frukt og brøddeig. Smaken er fruktig med hint av karamell, nøtter og vanilje. Fin og fyldig avslutning.
