COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

overtheline (114) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUL 12, 2015
330 ml bottle pours a crystal clear deep gold with large white head that dissipates quickly. Sweet estery nose with bubblegum and ripe fruit. This delivers a lot on taste, more fruity bubblegum and overripe fruits. High carbonation, medium body. Nice bitter twang in the tail and then when the show is almost over we get some rising warm alcohol. Stone the crows, yet another fabulous tripel!

rami_pl (1569) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 10, 2015
butelka, warka do 15-11-15. Bardzo wysoka piana, biala, ladna, samo piwo klarowne jesli nie wzburzyc osadu drozdzowego., jasno-midowe. Aromaty glownie fenolowe - pieprz, jakies ziolka przyprawowe. troche tez owocow a la brzoskwinia, moze jablko (takie normalne, nie to niedojrzale). dosc ostry ten aromat. w smaku lagodniej, slodkawo-przyprawowo na pieprzowa nute. alkohol czuc nieco, ale nie nahalnie. goryczka niewysoka. ciala niezbyt wiele. rzeskie. fajne. ale kapke zbyt w strone przyprawowosci jak na moj gust

Lekkere triple met een zoete smaak. Lekker fris bier met een lekkere nasmaak. Neigt wat naar citrus.

Dry with fruity notes and a hint of herbal. Fizzy enough to overfill an large glass, but head dissipates quickly.lingering bitter after taste.
