Note #1 - Received @ 12:13 PM PT (for Amsterdam, Netherlands +9 hours):
this beer has a wheat taste with a dry mouthfeel. it was barely cold when I bought it from the store and it only got warmer in the hotel room (there was no fridge or ice bucket); it stood at room temperature for about an hour before I got to it.

Note #2 - Received 5:08 PM PT (for Amsterdam, Netherlands +9 hours):
last sip. in the end, I dont like the blonde and/or wheat taste of this beer - it's flowery (I generally don't like this flowery taste in beers).

ZATTE

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.
