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.

Hazy yellow of color with a white head. An aroma of dust, apples and oak. A flavor of wood, spice and dry notes.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Draught at brewpub. Nose is yeast, citrus (lemon), and mild spice. Very cloudy, nearly opaque pale orange. Unimpressive color with an impressive foamy head. Nice lacing. Clean citrus flavor, opens sour and finishes sweet. Full bodied and satisfying mouthfeel.

Bottle @ Gollem, Amsterdam. Cloudy, murky blonde tripel. Yeasty, floral, tripel like spiciness with slightly sour & funky finish.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2007
[Sampled in 2005.] Another nice brew from Holland. Notes of flowers, some sourness, stickyness, yeast, spices and alcohol. Okay brew!

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Pours a bubbly light golden color with a big, foamy off white head. Spicy citrus notes are evident, sweet malts, and candy sugar also show up in the nose. The taste is a little sour, a little funky, with tons of spice flavors. The candy sugar sweetness is apparent, but moreso in the background as the spices tend to mask it somewhat. The finish is crisp and sweet. Funky aftertaste leaves you interested. Solid little brew.

Maria (10215) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2007
Dark golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of yeast, spice, barnyard and malt. The flavour is sweetish with notes of yeast, barnyard and malt. There isn’t really any bitterness, but the finish is rather dry.

Apologies, but I can not remember who opened this at the Cellars tasting. Thanks, though! Gold color with a thin head. Both the aroma and the flavor are packed with sugary malt. No real hop bitterness, no spices, no yeastiness... Just sugary malt. Tasty enough for me!

Skyview (5464) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Sampled from 12-oz bottle at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a hazy brownish amber brew witha thin off-white head that quickly dissolves to a fine film and just barely any lacing. Aroma of sour malt, yeast, some coriander and earthy herbs. Taste is medium bodied, well carbonated with a dry sour character. Flavors include, sour oranges, yeast, some caramel malt and alcohol. Finish has a slight alcohol warmth and a spiced yeast aftertaste.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Pours a deep murky yellow-gold with 1.5 inches of white head and opaque speckled sediment on the glass. Enticing lace. Smells of spiced pie, mandarin oranges, and barnyard sour yeast. Tastes are reminiscent of Fantome with barnyard Brettanomyces, coriander, creamy rice goulash, and dark green herbs. Zesty spice finish follows the slightly acidic sour-apple finish. Medium-full carbonation and lighter body for a tripel. Still, good.
