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.

0.33l bottle. Slightly hazy golden body, white head. Aroma of bread, almond, earthy hops, honey and lemon zest. Taste of bread, honey, orange zest, almond and floral hops. Sweeter than the average tripel. I like it.

The beer has a rather nice look. The color of the beer is a nice rather light yellow. The beer has an almost white glow to it. The beer is quite cloudy. On top of the beer a nice layer of white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses, to leave a thin drape of foam. The looks are almost that of a weizener, the pale color and the cloudiness. But its a tripel. The beer has quite a nice smell. There are some raisin aromas of the yeasts. I also smell some bananaís, dough, almondy alcohol and some other things I canít put my finger on. The balance is good. There are some nice sweets and hoppy bitters, with a tiny little sourness. Itís nice. The taste is great to. There is a nice alcohol flavor, containing hints of almonds. This is really tripel like. There is also some sweetness in it, some raisins and banana. The balance is again very nice. The taste is that of a true tripel, but it has a bit more sweetness. Itís quite nice. Good.

Bright golden beer with a small white cup, low carbonation. Tastes simple for a triple, malty, fruity. Dry finish but with nice hop aroma.

Clear golden, small white head. Fruity, malty aroma with light notes if spice and yeast. Yeasty flavour, some malt and hints of citrus. Bittersweet, slightly chewy. Ok.

Bottle from Secret Santa or Local Swap. I do not remember, sorry! But thanks to you anyway. Almost clear yellow colour, short lasting white head. Aroma slightly cheesy, applish spicy trippely. Light honeyish. Taste is well balanced and surprisingly drinkable. Mostly spicy flavours, but not overwhelming. Clove, coriander. Green apple. Very good.

33cl bottle. Pale yellow, with a thin white head. Smells like bitter herbs, spices, yeast. The taste follows the same note, with bitter herbal hops, spicy yeast and a (too) sweet malty backbone.
