This was the first beer to come out of our vats, back in 1985, making it the Brouwerij ‘t IJ classic beer. It is a ‘tripel’, the category reserved for the stronger blonde beers crafted in the Belgian tradition, and Zatte more than lives up to expectations. It’s 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 classic to be enjoyed in all seasons.

    Amazing stuff

  2. I think this is the best tripel that I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a lot of them from all over the world) – can’t wait to visit later today.

  3. Spent a few days in Amsterdam before leaving on a cruise up the Rhine. This is a terrific tripel, and yes possibly one of or the best I’ve had. I picked up some before our trip and have been sharing with others who also have really enjoyed this fine beer.

    Drank this on our visit to Amsterdam last week and was so impressed by it didn’t try anything else all week. Simply the best beer I have ever had. Wish I could buy it on the UK.

    Had this at a restaurant in Amsterdam while on holiday and this beer has been on my mind non-stop since! Loved it! I wish I could get it in Germany but no luck so far, hopefully my next visit I can stock up and bring some home!?

    Even though in Netherlands you could try a great selection of Dutch and Belgian beers, this one is really special. It simply tastes good, strong enough and gives you such an amazing aftertaste. If you haven’t tried this yet — don’t wait any longer, you will love it!
