Bottle @ Ysbreeker.
Amsterdam’s own Brouwerij ’t IJ brewery used to be a bit infamous as it’s founders come from the Amsterdam alternative scene. In 1983 it was founded in a squatter’s house on ’t IJ, the water body just north of Amsterdam’s Central Station. Presently they are based in the old bath house on Funenkade 7, near the windmill ’De Gooyer’. The IJ-lads are true followers of the slow beer movement, producing 10 biological, unfiltered, unpasteurized beers in a fairly limited amount. Most of which can be found in the bars in Amsterdam.
On this occasion I’m having ’t IJ ZATTE, their first brew. It’s a 8% triple, with a golden-yellow colour. Be careful pouring it as the beer ferments in the bottle and some deposits may flow along in the glass. Don’t worry, yeast is good for you!, but it might influence the taste a little bit. As usual with ’t IJ beers it’s turbid. The flavour is rich and full, but quite smooth at the same time. It starts of with a light sour taste, some malt with tones of wheat and liquorice in the middle and a bitter after taste. Despite being a fairly strong beer, it reminds me of German style weißen as it’s still quite fresh and easy to drink. Perfect for a nice day outside on the terraces, but be careful getting up!

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33l bottle @ Schipol Airport. This is a dark cloudy copper colored one with a nice big and lasting off-white head. The aroma is light metallic, malty with some traces of sour-grass (with out being sour) Not horrible. Oh, quite nice flavors! It’s at first malty and a bit sweet - almost some traces of chocolate and nuts, before it gets mild fruity and light alcoholic in the finish. Surprised me a bit this one! Really tasty! 03.06.2012

Draft at In De Wildeman in Amsterdam. Pale, hazed green-yellow with crisp foamy head. Tart sweet sugar and yeast on nose, smells like a fresh baked sugar cookie. Really lovely ginger, yeast body, cold and sweet, but balanced with yeast and bitterness. Softly coating, nice hopped tripel

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well made and typical. A bit softer than other tripels and lacked a hop punch that might have overcome the soft character. Aroma and taste otherwise typical. Almost creamy.
