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.

A wonderful beer, a great tripel as it should be. A good bitter taste and good hops! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours lightly hazy yellow with a large, foamy, white head. Aroma is floral, sweet fruits, sugary, and light bread. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Flavor has floral notes, fruits, sugar, and alcohol. finish is slightly wine-like and warm. A bit hot and one-sided but pretty good regardless.

Bought a bottle at Bert’s Bierhuis. Has a golden/yellow color and a white head, which dissapear very fast. Carbonation is medium, not much bubbles. Aroma of bread, fruits and some flowers. Has a creamy and fruity taste with hints from the aroma and a little alcohol. Has a light bitter afterdrunk with tones of fruits. Overall it’s nice tripel, but they could have done a better job.

Rating #822, vurderet ud fra hukommelsen, da jeg nu har drukket den to gange uden at få taget noter. Det er en gylden og boblende smuk øl, med en høj hvid skumkrone. Som en anden frugtplantage spreder pære og frisk citrus sig, når man snuser til den. Mild og afbalanceret smag, som er præget af frugt og blomster, og kun lader alkoholen titte en smule frem til sidst. Tyk og rund mundfølelse, som jeg ikke brokker mig meget over. Den kan måske være lidt for opskummende i munden til tider. Alt i alt dog en successoplevelse, som jeg godt kunne finde på at gentage.

Bottle at home, done from memory, rating is just for my own. I will edit if I drink it again, decent beer not very special.

Very spicy for a tripel, snappy palate stings at first. Foamy head fades, hazy g=dark golden body. Aroma is hops, coriander, butterscotch. taste is sharp, burns the palate, but no aftertaste. This is a bit different, and a bit too spicy for my taste (compared to the style).
