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.

Zlotta (1850) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2015
0.33 l bottle at De Balie, Amsterdam. Hazy, golden yellow with a creamy, white head. Fruity-yeasty aroma of grains, vanilla and honey. Sweetish, fruity-spicy taste of citrus, vanilla, honey and clove. Short, slightly sourish, light bitter and yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice.

Deze tripel heeft niet veel aroma. De smaak kenmerkt graan, een beetje hop en koriander. Droog. Weinig schuim. Geen heel bijzonder bier.

Bottle at home, from the regular supermarket. It pours a cloudy golden beer with a creamy white head, fine carbonation. The dominant smell for me is of sweet malt, some floral esters ( is that banana I get there...?), young strawberry, white pepper, touch of honey and some bitter hops. In the taste I find the sweet malt also dominant, with the peppery warmth of the alcohol, touches of citrus fruit, with a medium dry, silty edged ending. A nice tripel, definitively not one of the boring ones, although other beers from t IJ were able to raise more excitement in me. Anyway its a good tripel youd like to drink again, well balanced. I for one will drink this again!

Aroma: Malt, hop, yeast, clove, coriander, fruit. Appearance: Gold/yellow beer with a slight white head. Taste/Palate: Weak beginning, gets more interesting and ends in a blend of everything mentioned in the aroma.

Bottle. Poured a light golden yellow, definitely a tripel as advertised. Belgian spice and yeast prevails, definitely not as boozy as expected. Smooth.

On tap. Sweet, light bubblegum medicinal aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Light cherry, pepto bismol, lemon, light woody resin, white bread. Has a nice crispness to it which is nice, not too sweet. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
