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.

tom10101 (4524) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle (750 ml). Split 2-ways.

Appearance: Slightly hazy bright golden with a huge creamy white head, very good retention and some lacing.

Aroma: There’s the Glazen Toren yeast signature with peppery notes, herbal presence, noble hops, biscuity malts and light citrusy/fruity notes.

Taste: Quite yeasty as well with some candi sweetness, peppery notes, herbal presence, biscuity malts, light fruitiness and a touch of alcohol.

Palate: Medium to full body. Medium to medium-high carbonation. Ample and fluffy mouthfeel. Yeasty finish. A bit of caramel.

Overall: Very good classic Tripel. Not too boozy and quite easily drinking for the style. Well balanced despite being quite yeasty. Tasty stuff.

Ambro206 (293) - ITALY - MAY 2, 2015
Assaggio da 100 ml allo Zythos Festival 2015: Birra bionda cristallina. Aromi penetranti di miele, fiori, profumo e limone. Nel complesso discretamente amara ma ben equilibrata dalla dolcezza dei malti. Finale nella norma. Corpo decisamente assente.

Mooi uitzicht en schuimkraag, maar veel te zoet. Van de glazen toren had ik dat niet verwacht..

Poured a very nice murky orange with a lively head. Very slight spice in the mouth with alcohol well hidden.

Fashawn (514) - Montesarchio, ITALY - FEB 26, 2015
Standard stuff, birra normale con corpo esile, dolcezza dei malti, tessitura acquosa ed un pò di pepe ed altre spezie. Non la migliore bevuta del lotto.

Un très beau ptttccchhh! m’accueille en ouvrant la bouteille. Au nez c’est très sucré... Un peu épeurant pour moi qui préfère les bières sèches. On reconnait assez facilement que c’est une tripel. Le corps est bien rond. C’est poivré. Le sucre est bien présent mais pas si désagréable que ça finalement... Me fait penser un peu à une Fin Du Monde d’Unibroue.

Good pour, white head. Sweet up front. Honeyed notes, wheat bready flavors, belgian yeast. Pretty ok.

Shared with wim at his home. Clear goldblond colored beer with small white head and lots of carbonation. Hopped fruited aroma. Full creamy sparkling palate. Finish is bitter sweet with some fruity hints.
