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.

The best from A’dam’s best microbrewery. A trippel in the same league as many of the top tier in Belgium. Yeasty, floral aroma. Medium body. Sweet and caramelly taste with fruit finish. (7/10/2010)

Zatte, dutch slang for pissed, as used by the English to describe one's self as inebriated ,is an excellent name for a beer that warns you of what you'll be after drinking it. Golden in color, Zatte pours with a wonderful white head, boasting tiny white bubbles that invite you to come and play. I liken the flavor of this beer to a liquid nutter butter cookie with a finish that keeps your lips coming back to the edge of the glass for more.

33cl. BB 03/06. Pours a muddy, yeasty sunset color with a good, fine bead and a very awesome frothy, lacey head. Aroma is complete allure! Tropical fruits including pineapple, citrus, throw in some pear maybe, slight banna...fruit galore! French vanilla too...incredible aroma. Brings me back to Amsterdam...there’s maybe this faint red liquorice in it too...man its complex. The drink is completely lush, just like the aroma...silken sweetish fruit with a certain balancing tartness...something lemon like, merrange maybe....creamy sweet tart citrus. I think this is absolutely tremendous...a bit funky, a bit acidic, but the fruit is wonderous...and there is some malt there too!

ekstedt (5391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2008
Bottled (33 cl) at het Amsterdamertje, Göteborg, Sweden. Hazy golden with medium white head. Fruity aroma with notes of wild strawberries, spicy & earthy notes. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Very well balanced with a light initial sweetness followed by a firm dryness. A great saison-like beer.

Bottled: Clear light amber coloured. Huge white frothy head. Yeast, malt, spices and slight notes of cocoa in the nose. Sweet, yeasty and cocoa flavour. Notes of hops. Very smooth and pleasant. Has a faint bitterness in the end. Good dry lasting on the palate. Very good beer.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2005 Many aromas and they are all good. Nutmeg, yeast, wheat, pears, and apples. Cloudy orange with a huge Duvel-like head. Flavor is complex like the aroma. Citrus, wheat, more pears, and nutmeg. Light spices I can’t identify. Delicate. Smooth but not very full body. Think Tripel Karmeliet but slightly lighter.

Bottle 330ml. Great beer. Aromas of butter, apple, hint of citrus. Taste is sweet, with balancing bitterness, and a touch of sourness; very long lasting. Palate is creamy, with a medium body. Orange, with a frothy white head.

12 oz bottle. date is 3/06 not sure what that means i don’t think it could mean its a 5 year old brew though, it was out of the fridge at the store. It pours a deep god with a slight bit of hase, the head is big, foamy, and white and recedes quickly, then slowly, leaving only spots of lacing. The smell is awesome. Think if someone dropped a banana in a glass of Orval. It has a bright citrusy funk alongside ripe banana. There is some earth and spiciness and a hint of grain as well. hint of strawberry. The taste doesn’t evoke as much funk. It is fruity, slightly musty, slightly earthy, with a dryness like Orval. It has a nice fruity tang, some slight alcohol, and some grain. Holy fuck, is this orval junior or what? Caught me off guard. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-26-2010 00:03:00

Had a draught Zatte which has a slightly tart sensation to it. It is very yeasty and has a clouded colour. It is fresh, a taste of bitter, and spicy. Very nice beer. I like the typical IJ glass, unlike any other beerglass.
