BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brouwerij 't IJ
Netherlands

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.

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.

Drank in Café Kale.

A: The body is pure crystal yellow, no bubbling, with a white head that has no retention but has some lacing. For a tripel, this looks good but the minor head appears to be a constant in this brewery.
S: Yeasty and malty. The aroma is really great.
T: The taste is mostly yeasty and malty, but this time with a great addition of something I can't really recall what it is. This tripel feels like a bit more licquor-y and that's great.
M: For a 9% ABV, this is great. The alcohol provides a more dense and licquor-y feel, it's great.
O: Now this a good a good tripel. I'll have more of this in the future.

33cl bottle. Pale yellow, with a thin white head. Smells like bitter herbs, spices, yeast. The taste follows the same note, with bitter herbal hops, spicy yeast and a (too) sweet malty backbone.
