Ondineke is a classic tripel, brewed in the ancient way, again with exclusive natural ingredients: artesian water, malt (barley), hops, yeast and liquid candy sugar. As in the Saison no spices are added. Ondineke is an unfiltered top fermenting beer. It is soft, creamy, and of golden color. It is double hopped with the last real hops available from the region of Aalst (The variety is Hallertau Mittelfrüh). Ondineke has a positive taste evolution and the bottles are best kept standing in a cool, dark place. It is best before two years after the bottling date. 8.5 % alc.vol. makes this a beer to be savoured. Preferably Ondineke is to be served at a temperature between 6 to 10° C. Moreover Ondineke is at its best when served in the originally designed Glazen Toren glass.

rdb84 (125) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown golden color. Typical Glazen Toren aroma: Ementhaler cheese, yeast, hint of orange juice. Taste starts with a slightly sour fruitiness (-dried- oranges), grass/hay, does not turn too bitter which suits this beer well. Ideal for ending warm summer nights. Aftertaste is ripened cheese. Not bad (not at all), however, the their Saison d’Erpe beer is more robust in terms of aroma and palate, and tastes better in my opinion.

Benzai (8924) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
Sampled from bottle @ Van Moll Brewpub. Clear orange color, medium sized off-white head. Pretty sweet aroma with some candy in there as well. Taste malts, some wood somehow, sweetness. Good balance. Quite nice actually.

hawthorne00 (2543) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle. Gold with a huge white head. High bead. Aroma of hay, oranges, glacé ginger, herbs, pepper. Mouthfeel is not as highly carbonated as it looks like it’s going to be and is quite creamy and soft. Very sweet with loads of candi sugar, peach, light oranges, vanilla. Subtle floral bitterness with some spices. Quite light bodied with just a breath of alcohol at the end to suggest its strength. Dries out, but only a little bit - and it means it’s overall a bit too sweet for me. But I guess without it the spiciness might have been a bit harsh.

Idiosynkrasie (4090) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 26, 2014
750ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, firm, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity, yeasty, and sweetish bready malty aroma, hints of peach and apricot, some yeasty spiciness. Taste is slightly dry, minimally tart, slightly sweet, grainy, fruity, hints of peach and apricot, minmally peppery, spicy yeasty overtones; soft palate, smooth carbonation. Superbly balanced, bridled sweetness - very good!

nathanvc (65) - Brugge, BELGIUM - APR 12, 2014
A light smell. Hoppy character with hints of raisin and fruit. Nice red appearance and foamy head. Bittersweet. Fresh, short finish. Very enjoyable and special.

Koelschtrinker (11048) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
Fruchtig herber Antrunk, milde Kräuternoten. Der Alkohol ist erkennbar, stört aber nicht. Hell getreidig, die Fruchtigkeit sinkt. Milder und trocken herber Abgang. OK. 11/10/9/8/8/9

dfearnley (1075) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle to pint glass Yeast right off the top, then orange, and lemon, and finally some caramel and pepper. It’s a cloudy amber with tons of particulates and a 1/2 creamy and 1/2 frothy mottled off white to tan head. Yikes...not looking to great. Taste is orange, and yeast, lots of malts with late peppery hops. The mouthfeel is very creamy and a bit chalky with a slight alcohol burn at the end. Quite good, but the appearance and chalkiness really hurt this one.

patricks110 (1758) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
Pours a bright ruby tinted orange with a thick, bubbly white head. The nose is zesty and citrusy with light peppery esters and mild grassy hops. Mild toasted malts, caramel and a soft creamy palate. Quite sweet and savoury with a crisp, fruity with a zesty, somewhat bitter finish. As good as the other Glazen Toren brews.
