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 Mittelfrh). 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.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Unusually dry. Great tripel taste with a bit of spicyness. Not nearly a textbook tripel, but it has a lot of very likable characteristics.

Sammy (11968) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2008
Musty slightly funky yeasty aroma. Great creamy head pour. Light colour. In a word, creamy yeasty milk taste with hop bitterness in the finish. Nicely drinkable, with food. Not for everybody, and not everyones idea of the triple.

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.

On tap-Poured a cloudy golden color w/a white foamy head. Light, fruity, spiced aroma. Flavors of yeast, cane sugar, roasted malt, dark fruits, figs, & spices. Spices give it a lot of kick, good after dinner warmer. long spicy finish.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle, GBBF, August 2006. Hazy orange colour. Slightly yeasty fruit aroma. Light zesty orange notes on the palate. So far so good, but there was too much of a candy and bubblegum presence for my liking. That also gave rise to a rather sweet overall feel.

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2007
Bottle: poured a deep cloudy (non-filtered) golden color ale with a super huge white foamy head with great retention and some perfect lacing. Aroma of light sweet peach with some fruity yeasty ester is really intriguing and refreshing. Taste is a well balance mix between some peach, some sweet malt with a well balance dry hops finish and some fruity ester from the yeast. Full body with minimal filtering and some great carbonation. I have to admit to being really impressed by that one.

vyvvy (6354) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Pours hazy amber / orange with a large ivory white head. The has spices up front followed by fleshy nectar fruits, white grapes and lots of yeast. Medium / light body thats very crisp and refreshing and has sharp & frothy carbonation. The flavor begins with spices, white grapes, lots of sugar and light sweetness. The finish has much of the same. A good tripel, but not as interesting and complex as expected.

rederic (3335) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2007
Hazy honey gold hue, with a rocky white head, leaving laces, yeasty, fruity nose, of ripe apple, pear and citrus fruitiness with a hint of bready dough, with a shy floral hop note, and a faint honeyed aroma folows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity, honeyish pale malt character, with a candyish fruity apple and pear accent, with a mild cheesy note, leading towards a sweet malty, hop bittering finish.
