Description

Ondineke, subtitle Oilsjtersen Tripel (Tripel from Aalst) was the second beer of De Glazen Toren introduced under its own label.

Ondineke derives its name from the main character of the most famous novel of the most renowned author of Aalst ( De Kapellekensbaan by Louis Paul Boon, translated into English in the early seventies as "Chapel Road"). A statue of Ondineke can be found at the entrance of the City Hall of Aalst.

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).

Just like the Saison, Ondineke is bottled in 25.4 oz. bottles. The self-designed wrapper is white, yellow and red (the city colours of Aalst).

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.
