After the ‘Zatte’, this is the oldest beer from Brouwerij ‘t IJ. Natte is classed as a ‘dubbel’, a Belgian category of smooth, dark beers. Because we partly use dark malt, Natte has a reddish-brown colour and a smooth, roasted flavour with earthy tones of brown sugar, nuts and plums. Completed with slightly bitter hops, this is a nicely balanced beer and one of the brewery’s classics.

Not so good as the others. Tastes like a homebrew, mild off flavors, nothing to love here but not terrible.

A – Good and dark tea like colouration with a baby finger of tight foam that leaves very little lacing in the glass. Zero evidence of carbonation,

S – Malt notes very apparent along with toffee and biscuit. Good hop smells; apple and plum notes.

T – Good hop and malt balance up front. Some mild toffee sweetness balanced by apple, plum and some rhubarb flavours. Some tea like flavouring in the after taste.

MF – Great body in the mouth and medium linger. There are some boozy notes and nice coating on the tongue.

O – Very well balanced and extremely drinkable. This is a pretty good Dubble with plenty of flavour without too much solvent taste. The malt flavours in here are pretty nice but to be honest they are not the best I have ever come across. However this is good enough for the style.
