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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle from Mr hangover. Thank you ! This one is a crazy copy of the Berliner weisse coming from kindl. Strange aroma of German sauerkraut and chicken broth. Really tough to deal with. Worst Dutch beer of my life so far.

Bottle from MrHangover - thank you! To be honest, Im quite puzzled by the description of this beer here and what I got, maybe it was infected? Well, it pours out in a light cloudy light yellow colour with low steady head and thin body. Nose of Berliner Weisse and old sauerkraut juice. Very unpleasant taste of sour vegetable broth, acid and bread juice. Awful thin and watery, made me a little bit sick.

Warme smaak die nooit misstaat. Lekker vol en rond. Veelzijdig en gaat niet vervelen. Hele bier met genoegen gedronken.
