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.

Very well balanced Tripel with lots of sweet malts, subtle bitter hops and that sweet corn flavor backed up by a packed punch. Quite yeasty

r464 (2257) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Hazy golden color with a foamy whitish color head. Crisp, yeasty, a bit tart. Hints of banana, citrus zest, peppery spice. Full and long finish. Hints of the alcohol strength are notable.

Monchito_IPA (190) - SPAIN - MAY 23, 2014
Espuma blanca abundante que se disipa demasiado rápido. Rubia. Aroma algo pobre para una tripel, con demasiado alcohol. En el paladar entrada dulce y cálida con algo de amargor final y ligeramente afrutada. Está bien pero le falta complejidad y le sobra presencia de alcohol.

sjorsvdg (409) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Een heerlijke tripel, met frisse bloesem- en graansmaak. Lichte bitter van hop en gist. Erg aan te raden.

Artichoke (87) - California, USA - MAY 7, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2015 Five finger head. Light pale yellow, floral hoppy herbal. Got a pilsner front... Kinda funky dirty mixed with sweet. Poor example of an Abbey ale. On second tasting, it's even worse. It's like everything you always hated about cough syrup.

Golden color, white frothy head. Yeasty, fruity and spicy nose, hints of banana and mild acetone. Sweet fruity taste, spice, metallic notes, hint of alcohol. Lively carbonation, medium body, warming finish.

IPAgutten79 (913) - Skui, NORWAY - APR 20, 2014
Lys gylden med relativt lavt skum. Aromaen er malt og gjćr, samt noe banan. I smaken finner jeg samme, pluss noe krydder. Medium konsistens, litt třrr.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 7, 2014
Soft fruity malt aroma, a touch of wheat spiciness. Hazy yellow, plenty of carbonation, huge fluffy head. A lot of banana and spices for flavor, also tartness and alcohol. Foamy body, but not accurate to describe it a slight in any sense. Average tripel ale, wheat beer elements aside.
