COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Split a 750ml bottle. Poured a golden yellow color, fluffy white head, plenty of carbonation. Aroma was hops, fruity notes, citrus notes, yeast notes. Flavor was yeast, hops, fruits. Wish it was a little more smooth. Plenty of candy sugars.

Theydon_Bois (8710) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2013
Tap at Ma Che, Roma, 22/06/13. Hazed golden with a decent white head that retains well. Nose carries woody notes, malt, cereals, fruits, booze. Taste comprises yeast esters, sour notes, candied sugars, dark fruits, toffee, bread dough, light spice. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation. Ok tripel but the booze stood out a little too much in a slightly harsh/unrefined way.

Piero1987 (681) - Iglesias, ITALY - JUN 26, 2013
Intense golden with white head. Light aroma of spicy and honey. Light sweet and light bitter, so dry and drinkable.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 24, 2013
E’ più amara delle tripel a cui ero abituato, ma l’ho trovata fiacca, come se non fosse al massimo di freschezza.

joskevermeulen (15) - liedekerke, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2013
Zwaarder bier maar zeer zacht, romig en een heel frisse smaak. Ik vind de omwikkelde flessen wel iets hebben, heeft iets verboden. Drink het uit hun mooie aparte glazen.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
750ml tissue-wrapped bottle that’s been under the stairs since October 2010, split with missus and Sarah at The Penguin. Slim-lidded, fully hazed pale orange. Aroma of lime, jasmine, botanicals, pale malt, shrubby hop. Slick, flowered, mellow hoppy flavour with more jasmine and lime-like impressions. Almond, peanut and toast in the finish. Mellow balanced effort without a sniff of booze.

This bottle that I’m drinking says that it’s best before Dec 31, 2010 so my rating might be different if the beer were fresher. It pours a cloudy light golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is of weak citrus, lemon and hops follow, with some cloves and yeast. Flavor is a little soured. Yeast, coriander, clove, spice, expired malt, and some earthiness. Bubbly palate. Leaves a sour clove and yeast finish.

750ml bottle shared with Steve,Even though this was poured quite cold to say that it was lively would be like saying that the Titanic is a little damp!Gusher it was.Citrus,lemon and hops immediately filled the room,surrounding area,house and complimented the appearance of a hazy golden beer with a huge white head.Lemon featured in the taste too with other citrus notes and apple along with floral and herb flavours too.Crisp,well balanced,refreshing and tasty if a tad lively beer.
