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.

DraftDodger (1038) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2015
Nyby 19/9 2014. 75 cl bottle from Fakta Quick. Pours hazy yellow with white head which settles. Distinct herbal, citrus and bitter aroma which lets you on to the high alcohol content. Prickly mouthfeel. Fruity taste with notes of pear and sweetness. Rather bitter aftertaste with influence of alcohol.

AlfredoGarcia (260) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 17, 2015
Citrus and cereal smell. Light gold color with medium foam. Creamy taste a little bitter. In the mouth it has a long ending, with some kind of almond taste at the end. It was cheaper than most Belgiums that i found in the supermarket, but this one is slightly better.
