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.

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

labeerinthum (829) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 18, 2017
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.

Really, really nice triple. Everything you would expect from a triple, but the fruity tones make this triple special

SimonBlok (535) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2017
33cl bottle at home. Appearance: hazy yellowish golden with medium white head. Aroma: sweet malts, yeast, some orange/orange zest. Taste: farily high sweetness and medium bitterness. Notes of spices, grains and orange zest. Palate: medium bodied, oily texture and lively texture. Balance is a little on the sweet side. Pretty good.

ForlornHope (511) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2017
Bottle at home. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma of bready yeast and spice. Sweet start with some bitterness to balance. Flavours of caramel, nut, fruit, vanilla and more yeast. Lively carbonation but I found the body a bit thin. Pretty good.

Ferris (14997) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2017
Draft - Sweet and fruity with dirty yeast notes. Clear yellow gold with a decent white head. Sweet, fruity and again that yeast strain I just don’t like.

The_Osprey (7881) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2017
Keg at Brewdog Shepherd’s Bush as ’t IJ Zatte, 8%. Golden orange, translucent and still, foamy dense white head. Aroma is chlorine pool water, green apple, stones. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is a little thin, stones, thin apple, some booze, finishes a bit thin with some more pool water. Some candi sugar sweetness. Ok

3.2
Heidbummer (602) - SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2017
Taster Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours amber with big foamy white head. Big banana aroma. It’s really sweet. Masses of caramel. Not my bag really. Too much sugar and banana. Nice in (very) small quantities.

3.4
mzaar (3380) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2017
Fat @ Brewpub. Klar guldfärgad med ett vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av frukt, säd och örter. I smaken tillkommer tall. Något stickig beska.
