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.

W aromacie brzoskwinia, lekki cytrus, przyprawy, porządny. W smaku zaskakuje owocowością i świeżym smakiem zboża, dominuje połączenie cytrusów i brzoskwini, lekka przyprawowość, świetnie ukryty alkohol, goryczka niska. Super solidny!

Vom Fass. Helle gelbe Farbe, wie alle Biere hier mit sehr flüchtigem Schaum. Es duftet süsslich nach Hopfen und etwas Honig und roten Beeren. Kräuterige Hopfenaromen im Antrunk. Danach leider etwas flach.

Kolor: ?ó?to pomaranczowy, lekk? zm?tniony, z dro?d?owymi drobinkami. Piana bia?a, niezbyt wysoka, ?rednio trwa?a. Aromat: s?odowy, owocowy gdzie pierwsze skrzypce gra pomarancza, lekka korzenno??. Smak: owocowy, ponownie s?odka pomara?cza i kandyzowana skórka pomara?czowa, kolendra, korzenno?? i jeszcze nuty dro?d?owe. Goryczka niezbyt wysoka, lekko zio?owa i trawiasta. Wysycenie wysokie, odpowiednie. Alkohol: no niestety jest jak nó? wbity w plecy, kompletnie nie czu? a kopie. Uwagi: Zatte jest do?? pe?ne, "grube" a przy tym lekkie i wysoce pijalne.

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.

Gangstergafje (612) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2016
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 banana’s, dough, almondy alcohol and some other things I can’t put my finger on. The balance is good. There are some nice sweets and hoppy bitters, with a tiny little sourness. It’s 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. It’s 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.
