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.

Une « mokum triple » de derrière les fagots, pardon derrière les canaux … Niveau abv de 8 %, non filtrée, non pasteurisée (joli jeu de mots pour la Hollande !!). Couleur doré moyen brillant, avec un peu de levure en suspension. Mousse blanche crémeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, froment sur pied en plein cagnard d’été, levure, pointe d’amandes fines. 1ère bouche très soyeuse, à la belle entrée sur malt dense, épices, fleurs des prés. Arrière-bouche avec du volume, bien maltée, et très jolie amertume fleurie. 2èem à l’équilibre général malt/houblon/épices. Arrière-bouche longue, complexe, harmonieuse, avec des fleurs blanches. 3ème où la texture s’étoffe encore. Bouche de malt et herbes (normal à Amsterdam). Arrière-bouche qui donne des notes savoureuses de noisettes, coings confits. Longueur avec de nouvelles notes, fruits blancs, bois blanc, petit blanc (je veux dire vin blanc sec..., à ne pas confondre avec blanc bec …). Jambes denses et fines. Levure assez fine, mais trop légère pour une triple. Alcool correct et bien progressif. Il fait son travail honnêtement (ce n’est déjà pas si mal …). Finale dont j’aurais attendu un peu plus. Elle est belle, mais un peu en-dessous de l’ensemble. CONCLUSION : une triple méritoire, qui est très bien construite, d’autant plus que c’était la première bière de cette brasserie. Elle manque de peu la timbale, ce qui lui aurait très bien convenu puisque, comme chacun sait, timbale à A’dam ne claque pas des dents !!

Reddish amber. Rapidly vanishing ivory head. Intense aromas of white flowers, bakery, citrus rind, coriander... Full body encompassing a good mixture of bitter and sour. Powerful, savoury, persistent. Strong, complex and nice.

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 (6580) - 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.

madsberg (11613) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2003
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.

JK (5946) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2005
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.
