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.

Pringao_Toribi (349) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 26, 2014
In short: sweet and drinkable with a punch of liquor at the end. Aroma: bread and caramel, and a little yeasty. Taste: light and sweet, but nice (not watery or too weak) Palate: very surprising and enjoyable liquor finish.

Head is average, frothy, white and slowly diminishing. Body is sparkling golden yellow. Aroma is typically tripel, moderate malts like hay, molasses and bread, light hips like citrus fruits and flowers and light yeasts like leather and also banana, vanilla, some forest fruits and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then sweet and light acidic and finally sweet and bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Quite allright, not among the best. Misses complexity.

VDuquerroux (1160) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 20, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2015 Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear golden yellow beer ; bubbly ; medium white "omelet" head with a good retention. Herbs, flowers, roast, caramel, biscuit, prune. First, medium sweet, then medium dry bitter waves. Full body, medium texture, good carbonation (nearly fizzy), dry bitter finish with a light warming note. Overall, very good tripel beer !

Bottle in Hermans. Clean gold with a fluffy head. Aroma is peppery yeast. Tangy on the tongue. Sweet fruity flavour, a little metal on a tart bitter finish.

mutz (854) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2014
Goudgeel, witte kraag die vrij snel inzakt tot een laagje op het bier. Ruikt fruitig,gistig. Smaakt fruitig, gist , zeep. Vrij zoet, weinig bitter. Goede tripel maar mist de "bite" en balans die mijn favoriete tripel uit westmalle wel heeft. Beetje laffe afdronk.

Dummi (28) - - OCT 10, 2014
Espuma muy abundante y realmente bella, blanca y uniforme que persiste varios minutos junto a la apreciable carobonatación que mantiene viva la cerveza todo el tiempo. Color ambar algo turbia. El aroma es claramente afrutado destacando algún cítrico y muy agradable. Al paladar se aprecia cierta graduación de alcohol, sabor a pimienta y amargor final que compenza el dulzor inicial. El final deja una sensación de cerveza potente de gran calado.

PapaVillum (841) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
75 cl, flaske, 9,0 % ABV, købt i SuperBrugsen på Østerbro, 11. september 2014. Gylden ufiltreret Kloster Tripel med pæn tætskummende 3 cm tyk skumtop. Den svinder ind til en god cm efter en håndfuld minutter. Aroma af banan, hø, græs. Ikke specielt kendetegnende. Fin sødme i smagsindledningen, som derefter indhylles i moderat kraftig alkoholvarme og en solid bitterhed. Gode krydderier. Vi har her tale om en Tripel, som aldrig bliver for sød, men finder en god bitterhed i balancen til det søde. Konsistensen er oily/cremet, og brygget indeholder ganske meget kuldioxid, som er sædvane i se fleste Tripel'er. Denne Tripel havde en stjerne i min ølbog allerede fra første færd, og nu, hvor jeg smager den rigtigt igen, svigter min fornemmelse ikke. God humlet Tripel.
