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.

jabbeloo (100) - Denderbelle, BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2013
Great looking beer very clear and great foam head. The beer has a woody fruity aroma. The alcohol is strong but it is not over the top. The taste is dry but the high alcohols are not overwhelming. Great complex beer with special 4vg after taste. ---Rated By the Belleketels

RuneStumo (2525) - Haugesund, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2013
19.05.2013. 0,33l Bottle. Vinmonopolet, Haugesund. Golden yellow colour with white head. Lively carbonated. Sweet at first with alcohol and smooth soft faromas of floral hops. Very fresh hops. There is both strengt and sweetness. Body is rather rich since it is so strong as well. Aftertaste is strong with soft malt sweetness, alcohol and soft floral bitterness that is well balanced in this beer. This is a very nice beer!
