Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / 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.

My first Brouweij't IJ beer. Very tasty, as Belgians are, but not extraordinary. I would drink again.

Light orange haze with an average head of foam. Lots of clove in the smell with some malt, yeast and orange notes. The taste is also quite clovey at first, but develops as the beer warms up. It's actually quite herby and spicy after a while. It's quite dry, and it even tastes umami to me, which also gives this beer's taste some mushroom characteristics, probably due to the yeast flavour. Mouth feel is medium to full bodied and gentle. I'm giving this beer some extra points overall, as i liked it originality. Might not be everyone's cup of tea though.

Full-bodied, caramel/liquorice hint, low carbon, bit too sweet, but overall balanced tripel.

Color: yellow-orange, slightly hazy with yeast particles. White foam, not too high, on average lasted.
Aroma: Malt, where fruit is mainly oranges, slightly spicy.
Taste: fruity, again sweet orange and candied orange peel, coriander, spicy and even notes of yeast.
Gentian not very high, slightly herbal and grassy. High saturation, appropriate.
