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.

bottle, pours a light but hazy golden color, with big fluffy white head. aroma is of apples and citrus. flavor is very light. apples, citrus, some spice. very simple with a clean finnish. not a great beer, but definatly good. would be a lot better on a hot sunny day. not 50 and raining like it is today in Maine.

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 (9996) - 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 (762) - 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 (1582) - 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.

Garrold (733) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Hazy, pale gold. Thick, bubbly, lasting, white head. Sultanas. Ripe orange. Light almond. Light caramel. Some grassiness. Taste is sweet. Then light dry. Fairly full bodied, kept in check by the prickly, liveliness. Yeasty, lightly tart, light bitter finish.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2013
75 cl. bottle split with Kogymo @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske in Antwerp. Bottled on June 2013. Slightly hazy orange with a creamy off-white head that lasts for a long time. Smells of candy sugar, malts & grains, fruits, light herbs & dried citrus peel. Taste is grains, alternative malts, candy sugar, touch banana, very iron-rich water, spices, toffee, dried fruit peel, touch warming. Touch higher carb. Solid tripel but misses some oomph for me but I am not the biggest fan of abbey tripel’s.

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 (6994) - 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 (569) - Sottochiesa, ITALY - JUN 26, 2013
Intense golden with white head. Light aroma of spicy and honey. Light sweet and light bitter, so dry and drinkable.
