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 brewpub. Pours hazy golden, topped with medium creamy white head. Yeasty nose with quite noticeable citrusy notes. Taste is yeasty with quite spicy presence that flows into aftertaste. Medium body.

From a bottle. No head to speak of, it instantly disappeared. I don’t know while people call this sweet...no taste at all, just bitter bitter bitter in the end. No pleasent to drink at all, very thin. Dirty dishwater. Yuk.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of malt and Belgian yeast with some spice. Mostly sweet taste and finish. Nice enough.

Bottle from Jumbo. pours amber-gold with a very thin haze and a thin head. Delicious aromas of pears, alcohol and bread, plus a little sherbet, beeswax and orange. Rich and dry-malty-sweet. more fresh fruity notes, light toffee, touches of spice, honeycomb and vanilla. Excellent.

Een lekker tripel, gedronken uit fles. Warme kleur, ruikt lekker en goede smaak. Zoetig.

Mooie schuimkraag. Het is een honinggeel troubel kleurig biertje. Smaakt beetje fruitig maar vooral zoet en bloemig. Rijk van smaak met een mooie zachte afdronk en een subtiel bittertje op het eind. Het glijd als ware gewoon zelf naar binnen. Je wordt er ieder geval nooit zat van om er nog eentje te bestellen al zal je er uiteindelijk toch echt zat van worden. De naam kon dan ook niet toepasselijker gekozen worden. Maar op het laatste heeft de brouwerij wel meer patent op.

Droge tripel. Niet veel smaak. Niet slecht maar er is beter te krijgen. Schuimkraag verwijst snel.

Somewhat drier, but also slightly less interesting of a tripel. Well-balanced. OK.

Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso si indirizza su orzo e fruttato. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una buona tenuta e termina col bicchiere che si contorna di pizzo. La grandezza delle bollicine è medio-fine. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono fini. La carbonazione è nella norma. La carbonazione è persistente. Il colore è giallo dorato brillante. Il corpo è strutturato. L’amaro è deciso. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di birra leggermente beverina. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. Al palato arrivano sensazioni di miele, resina e frutta secca.
