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.

77ships (5178) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2015
330 ml. bottle drank @ De Gollem. Hazy dark sparkling orange with a big white head & nice lacing. Totally murky brown once I added the yeast. Nose is some sweetish grapefruit with a big quite BE ester profile, grain alcohol pear. Taste is weird grainy very sweet esters, alcoholic pear, grain genever, alcohol, huge esters, huge floral bitter esters, alcoholic ester pear, Boozy & effervescent body. Harsh & too BE in all the wrong way, huge harsh unpleasant boozy esters, little else to say.

Bottle. Honey color, modest foam head. Aroma: Pilsener, lemon, hint of seaweed, hint of fresh grains. It starts to shine in the taste, which borders ipa sweetness without the exotic fruit. Leans more towards orange, orange zest, apple juice, white wine. Sour lacing, sweet aftertaste. Ok.

weordie (245) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Pours a cloudy golden colour with no head. A banana bread and orange aroma. A strong wheat taste that quickly gives way to a bitter, strong alcohol taste.

Sigmund (5691) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. Pale golden colour, moderate white head. Spicy and yeasty aroma, not unpleasant, but not your typical tripel. Dry flavour, okay but not very interesting,mild spicy notes, but again: not your typical tripel.

Fra flaske p rbhd-samlinnga feb-15: klar lys gylden med hvitt skum. Aroma av grnne epler med en sidearoma av sure appelsiner. Litt blomster, gress og honning i smaken, som desverre ikke overbeviser.
