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.

Hey! It’s a volcano. I had scramble to find a glass quick after I popped the top. It pours a hazy copper orange with plenty of floaties. The nice fluffy white head likes to stick around. The mild nose smells of bubble gum, orange peel, and cotton candy. Smooth, round, and lighter on the palate for a tripel. Flavor-wise, it gives the impressions of sweetness but is slightly sour and definitely dry. It tastes of orange, sour apricot, a hint of barnyard, with hops and wood in the finish. This is a nice subtle tripel without a lot of depth. It tastes like it’s been aged for a few years. Nice and mellow, very enjoyable. Okay, this is ridiculous. I went back to the kitchen to pour more beer, appx. 5 mins. after I left it there. It’s foaming over again, even with 1/3 of the beer removed!?

Almost clear golden in color with a small head. If you look at the beer it’s not that tempting but don’t let it fool you. The aroma is very sweet and malty. Has typical Belgian ale sweet alchohol flavor. Great balance with hops, malt and yeast in the taste.

Colore dorato leggermente torbida, schiuma media poco persistente, carbonazione fine abbondante, aroma tenue e sfuggente di lievito e frutta. Al palato limone, miele. corpo rotondo, birra dolce con finale secco. Una tripel ben equilibrata dove l’alcohol è ben mascherato e dalla facile bevuta.

Poured into goblet. Hazy dark yellow almost orangish color with a minuscule head. Smells slightly sour with hints of grass and pear. Floral flavors with light grassiness and a sour fruitiness. Not overly complex. Very carbonated with a sour dry finish. Westmalle Tripel is preferred, but this really isn't my style of beer. --- Cheers

Pours or rather explodes in a volcanolike fashion a slightly cloudy amber/golden brown with a foamy white head. Very sweet aroma, lots of caramel malts, honey sweet, almost a sickeningly sweet at first. This is not a bad thing though, the taste is pretty interesting for a tripel. Mild on doughy yeast notes, very sweet, and a nice rich without being overpowering maltiness. Very creamy body. I like it.

Golden color with creamy head which disappears quickly. Aroma of hop, floral, citrus. Sweet taste with light bitterness. Actually quit heavy for its smell, but a typical triple. Aftertaste could be better. Comes in nice paper wrapped bottle. Also nice as a gift.

On tap at 33 Wine Bar - big white head on top of a cloudy yellow appearance. Smells like most belgian beers, but unlike others, I found it very easy to drink which is a welcome change for me. Lots of carbonation, and very refreshing. Does not taste like an 8.5% beer.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2008 75cl bottle. A tripel like a tripel should be! :-p
Great head. Great golden color. Great taste.

Mooi uitzicht en schuimkraag, maar veel te zoet. Van de glazen toren had ik dat niet verwacht..
