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.

ElManana (1923) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2014
Enjoyed this on Christmas Eve! Pours golden, orange little head. But I think it’s because this bottle has aged quite a while. Aroma of banana, rotten fruit, brown sugar. Taste is rotten fruit, very sharp alcohol, overripe banana.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2014
The follow-up to Tongerlo Tripel since 2009. Deep golden blonde with vivid sparkles, frothy, off-white head. Malt sweet main character, orange peel, peach, grass, yeasty spiciness, pineapple; sweetish taste, fruity notes, a bit yeasty, smooth mouthfeel, slight sourishness and moderate yeastiness, medium grassy hop bitterish finish with some warming alcohol, dryish. Hoppier and less sweet than its predecessor and in that sense a clear improvement, at least to my palate, but still an ordinary and rather forgettable tripel.
