Tongerlo Prior is a full-bodied beer with fruity notes that develop into a spicy and slightly flowery bitterness of hops. An authentic abbey ale, the age-old tradition of the White Canons of Tongerlo lives on in this officially recognised Belgian abbey ale. Re-fermentation in the bottle gives this beer a more intense taste and aroma as well as a longer shelf life. Tongerlo Prior was chosen as the best European blond abbey/trappist ale in the 2011 World Beer Awards.

Colour: Dark gold. Thin white head. Nose: Vanilla, citrus, grassy, bread. Hints of toffee and caramel. Sweet. Flavours: Spices and herbs at first. Then some sweet notes (licorice, sugary). Finish: Medium sweet, alcoholic. Ends a bit on an off-note. Verdict: Very drinkable, easy, but avarage Tripel.
