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.

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

Fashawn (255) - 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.

Yves (2413) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2014
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.

Vignale (2281) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Ca 2 år gammal. Varmt Gyllenfärgad, disig med högt vitt krämigt bestående skum. Krämig och lite småbubblig munkänsla. Söt doft- och smakbild med mycket honung, söta äpplen, gula russin men spritsig och med tydlig beska från både jäst och humle skapar bra balans. En riktigt fin trippel som funkade riktigt bra på julbordet.

2014.12 - fles 75cl - mooi wit schuim, beetje troebel oranjekleurig bier - lekkere neus - voor liefhebbers van Boon’s Kapellekensbaan alsmede ook voor anderen.

mkel07 (3878) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle from Wine Emporium 181114. Subtle sweetness and not so subtle fruitiness. Hazy when poured into the glass. Hides the alcohol well. Smooth and creamy in the mouth.

Sample. Golden color with a little white head. Spicy and slightly bready taste. Doesn’t taste like a 8+% beer. Very nice.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2014
Tripel from Aalst, the city of the late author Louis Paul Boon, one of the greatest authors in the Dutch language, creator of De Kapellekensbaan - the main character of which this tripel is named after. Yellowish white, thick, creamy, very stable head, warm golden blonde colour, clear but becoming cloudy as the 75 cl bottle is emptied in the glass. Pleasant fruity aroma of apple, mandarin, pineapple; malt sweetness, herbal hops, honey, caramel, white rhum, walnuts and some faint solvents, but nothing disturbing. Rounded, creamy palate, apple and orange fruitiness, mellow with honeyish background, finish soft spicy with mild Hallertau hoppiness. Very well balanced. I’m really beginning to like this brewery, founded by one of Belgium’s most notorious beer authors.
