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) - Pennsylvania, 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.

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2015
Welch eine angenehme Überraschung ! So ein feinsinnges, süffiges Bier mit einer erstaunlichen Leichtigkeit, dabei jedoch so ausgefüllt mit Hopfen, etwas Vanille, dazu leicht im Getreide und einer so einfach Trinkbarkeit, die nur schwer zu erreichen ist. Top.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a hazy golden-strawy colour with a steady head and smooth body. Aroma of malt, yeast, bread, caramel, straw and flowers. Mild yeasty finish. Nice one, very delicious.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Nez fruité, pêche, ananas. En bouche, belle corpulence. Bel équilibre amertume/alcool. Longue en bouche.

mathieuc (2480) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 23, 2015
Pours a pretty clear golden with a lot of fine particle floating and a high white head that leaves intense lacing. Nose is of peppery alcohol and that is about it. Taste is lightly sweet with some bitter alcohol but never not. Belgian sugar and fruits. Body is medium and so is carbonation. Light peppery finish. Overall a pretty good tripel but not a mindblowing one, more like a classic of some kind. Good.

freretoc (1284) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 22, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 75cl à la maison, couleur blonde, belle mousse et belle effervescence. Nez sur la pêche blanche. Attaque en bouche sur la pêche le sucre candy avec un côté assez piquant même si ronde en fin de bouche avec une continuité sur les fruits blancs et jaunes.

Banana, lemon meringue nose, lemongrass and grapefruit also detected. Cloudy amber, thick head. Bready pear and honey, apricots at midpalate, grass finish. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Delightful.

Boxereddy (260) - BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2015
Licht wazig gouden bier met flinke witte schuimkraag. Kruiden en fruit in de neus met peperige toets. Flink wat koolzuur, licht mondgevoel, duidelijke alcohol. Korte, droge afdronk.

tfredvik (1501) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2015
Hazy golden body with a rather small, white, long-lived head. Quite strong aroma of spices, Belgian yeast and fruity hints. Moderate flavour that follows the aroma, with additional notes of citrus, peach and alcohol. Moderate sweet taste, with a light to moderate bitter long-lasting finish. Mid-bodied and dry. Another solid brew form Glazen Toren.
[75 cl bottle, shared with Svensenga smak & behag]
