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.

This is a very good tasting beer. The people of Amsterdam are very proud of this beer, and should be. If you ever get a chance to try this do not pass on it.

330ml Bottle at Café De Raedt, Amsterdam (€4.50):
This one proved to be quite a good first beer in Amsterdam, a very nice tripel that could easily rank alongside some of the Belgian offerings of the style that I've tried. Zatte had an excellent balance & a light, fruity taste that went down easy with very little of the alcohol showing. A solid effort & one I wouldn't mind trying again, I just hope some 't IJ beers start making it to the UK sometime soon.
