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.

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.

Gul farge med fluffy hvitt skum. Lukter malt, gjær og alkohol. Litt vinøs i smak. Smaker også godt at denne har 9%.

Borresteijn (6042) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2014
Sample from a 33cl bottle at Triple A’dam. Almost clear deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, light spicy, sweet fruits, malts. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, fruity, alcohol, quite some citrus, bitter hoppy and alcohol finish. Medium to full-bodied, a tad over-carbonated. Tasty tripel, the best of the four we tasted.

jaghana (5236) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle 33cl, a clear yellow beer, nose is on belgian yeast with banana and light lemon notes. Aroma is near a weizenbock beer, good malty basis, sweet, banana, wheat, phenolic, some spices such as paradise seeds, bubble gum, cardamom. Again banana notes at the finish with good bitterness and a peppery hops notes. Good beer.

Maarten1993 (781) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 Not a great beer. A lesser version of Karmeliet. Lacks the freshness or bitterness of a good blond. Edit: rated higher after drinking it again 30-10-2014 at Brams birthday. Liked the body of the beer, the alcohol warmth.

Pours a light yellow color with a clear white head. Aroma is really fresh, fruity and a little yeast. Taste is sweet, bread, grass and then some alcohol. Quite some carbonation, but not too much. Nice brew, would drink it again, but wouldn’t go through great lengths to optain it.

Nicely balanced triple. Spicy taste, but not long lasting. Seems sweetened
