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.

Rune (9500) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2013
330ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet, Stokmarknes. Grey-golden body. Faint white head. Sweet and spiced fruity aroma. mild vapour of alcohol. Fresh taste of sweet lemony hops joined by a spicy touch. Mid-sweet fruity ending added by moderate alcohol heat. Soft in the mouth. Quite ordinary for the style (Stokmarknes, 02.03.2013).

fellebag (1183) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Bottle 33cl. Large white head, fizzy. Clear light golden color. Aroma is flowers, yeast, elderberries and pear with a hint of correction fluid. Flavour is more of steak tartare and wheat wine. It kind of stuns the oral mucosa in a good way.

0.33 flaske fra vinmonopolet. Gyllen farge med mye skum. Smaker gjær,banan,tyggegummi,frukt,alkohol. God, men for lite sødme og for mye bitterhet etter min smak

33 cl bottle at Rembrandt in Tongeren. Almost no aroma, it was really hard to figure out. Tasted like metal, some bitterness and sweet corn. Average beer but i'd drink it again. Lovely glass and on the plus side, the last amounts of beer in the bottle are poured in a seperate shot glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foffern (1467) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy dark straw yellow with a soap-like off-white medium head. Pretty carbonated. Aroma of pale malt, sweet corn, hay and some Belgian yeast, alcohol and spices. Almost like a strong pale lager. A bit fruity flavour along with pear and some alcohol and hay. More disappointing. Has a light and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A surprisingly characterless and boring ale.
