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.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy, somewhat murky, amber with a thine white head. Sweet grassy aroma. Fruity boozy taste with some cabbage like offtaste. quite sharp aftertaste. Not my kind of tripel to be honest.

Maarten1993 (274) - - NOV 28, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2014 Smells watery, sweet and like honey. Looks foggy, light golden, but not ?full?. A small amount of foam. Tastes weird, like a combination of sweetness and sourness. Medium carbonation. Too bad it?s also a bit watery and has a too low viscosity. Drank again with Thijs during the tasting 24-05-2014. Rated slightly higher. Liked the balance taste.

Very nice triple beer. Not much aroma, perhaps something grassy. Appearance is quite cloudy, good foam. Taste: pretty much the standard triple, bitter and sweet in a good balance. Next to that there is something grassy. Texture is quite thin. It is everything you expect from a organic triple form appearance to overall taste: the grassy, watery taste can get a little dominant but this is just good stuff.

JulienHuxley (2947) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2013
On tap at Spuyt. Hazy gold pour with receding frothy white head. Very spicy aroma, tons of banana and clove, light bready malt notes. Taste is sweet, spicy, a bit aggressive on the clove. Palate is well carbed, medium body, a bit too sweet.

tricksta_p (917) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2013
Pours a very hazy murky orange with a white head. Aroma of fruits, yeast, orange peel, some spices. This is remarkably drinkable tripel and I very much enjoyed it. It has encouraged me to seek out more from this brewery.

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 20, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy golden orange with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a light fruit note with a touch of clove and a grain/bread backbone. Flavor has sweet grains and sweet fruits with a bread backing.

Decent tripel from this Netherlands microbrew. Hints of fruit. Soft mouthfeel, not a lot of hops. Good but second to Belgians.

Rating from 2010: Mild-süßlicher Geruch, Scharf-fruchtiger AT. Der HT ist vollmundig, leicht bananig und angenehm mild, dabei aber trotzdem alkoholisch-scharf. Der NG ist leicht säuerlich, alkoholisch-scharf & fruchtig (gelbe Grüchte) weich! --> 10/9/10/9
