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.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2008
A pretty standard tripel, solid without too much alcohol, a medium weight on the palate, aromas of melons and darker fruits with plenty of sweetness and slightly spicy/bitter end, aftertaste mostly dry and herbal.

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

Alengrin (2065) - 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.

Een tripel zoals een goede tripel hoort te zijn, met een goeie smaak eraan.
