The first beer to come out of our vats, back in 1985, making it the classic beer of Brouwerij Ďt IJ. It is a Ďtripelí, 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.

KimJohansen (10419) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2008
Cloudy golden with large white head. Slightly sour aroma with notes of wood, barnyard and grapefruit. Sweet flavor with sour notes, wood, yeast and a dry finish. Reminds me of a mild geuze strangely enoughÖ

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle courtesy of sonah. Pours amber with a nice white head. Smells of sweet malt, sugar, citrus, some tarte undertones. Tastes of dry malt with some nice orange undertones, pepper, apples, lots of malt character. Mouthfeel is thick and full bodied. Finish yields some hints of straw and hay. I really enjoy this one.

2nd Brewery 07-08 Beer Road Trip with Bikesandbeer, 12/31/07 @ The Brewery with Alan Sprints. Alan was nice enough to give Kevin, Kevinís Girlfriend Jessi a private tour and tasting on New Yearís Eve 07. Bottle form Alanís Personal Cellar after Kevin was talking about living in the Netherlands Alan went around back and rooted out a 1996 vintage of this brew and damn it was tastey. Pours yellow bubbly with a 1 finger bubbly head. Nose had a huge yeast character. Taste was alsmost Greg like sweet, yeasty, light and all in all a damn fine Tripel.

Huge thanks to SoLan who sent this as a bonus in a trade. Cloudy orangey/yellow, white head. Nose is lemon pineapple bretty goodness. Reminds me of a candy I used to like that was called Tart & Tinyís. Awesome malt & yeast notes. Flavor is more of that tart & tiny, pineapple, yeast & light spicing (none of which I can zero in on.) A bit more yeast and breadiness in the finish. Extremely smooth body. Nice!

TrefwoordPunk (958) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2007
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy golden with a medium white head and a smell of citrus. Taste is mainly grass citrus with a spice I canít exactly point out. Nice lasting finish makes this an original beer, I like it.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2007
A bigger tíIj beer than many of the others. Has a winter-warming quality. Malty and a tad on the sweet side. Good balance of flavors though. Creamy and soft.
