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.

Yellow/orange with a nice creamy white head. Aroma is sweet, alcoholic, fruity yeast. Taste is very sweet, fruity, high alcohol finish, highly carbonated. Full bodied, smooth (almost syrupy). Ok tripel, but a bit sweet imo.

Westkyoto77 (565) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle. Poured a deep amber with a solid white head. Boozy nose of cherries, liquor and a touch of citrus. Body nice and sticky, reasonably high carbonation. Tastes of dark fruit and caramel, with golden syrup in there too. A touch too sweet for mine, but solid stuff overall.

Panzerfaust (657) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 9, 2013
Bottled from Jumbo, Santiago. Pours a hazy amber-orange color with a big white and long lasting head. Aroma is fruity, malty and yeasty. Orange peel, coriander, pears, peaches and some vanilla. Mild spices and some concealed phenols. Taste is very sweet and fruity (pears) with some spiciness. Unfortunately its blemished by strong phenolic notes, especially in the harsh alcoholic finish. Big bodied and heavy. Could be better but it’s still a heavy hitter Tripel.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours clear golden in color with a foamy white head. Sweet sugary notes, peppery spicyness, honey and garden fruityness in aroma. Slightly biting spicy notes, fruity sweetness, cantaloupe juicyness and bit of earthy bitterness in taste. Nice, quite balanced and tasty tripel.
