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.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2013 330 ml fra Vinmonopolet. Gylden rav, med fyldig fint skum, som sitter lenge. Tydelig bananaroma med malt, humle og litt sitrus. Rund og fin i munnen med tydelig, men balansert alkohol og kullsyre. Litt sødme også og gjær, men lite bitterhet. (Jomfruland 23.03.13)

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2013
0.33l bottle. This is a clear golden one with a massive massive almost fluffy and everlasting white top that’s leaving some pretty serious lacing down the sides of the glass. It’s soft fruity on the nose. Some clear alcohol in here as well as traces soft white sugar, Belgian yeast and it can easily be describes as a typical tripel aroma. Not to extreme, but nice enough. It has a average+ carbonation level and a soft oily mouthfeel. More Belgian flavors in this, some alcohol, grains, slight floral with some sweet white sugar. Perhaps a bit raw at times, but it’s a decent classic Belgian tripel. 03.02.2013

Rune (9661) - 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).

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.
