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.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, white head. Smells of grass, baker’s yeast, malts. Taste is medium sweet, quite a sting of alcohol, spicy. Very grassy bitter tail

maekchu (3044) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle. Spicy and fruity nose, with yeast, a bit herbal and floral. Clear golden straw, some lace. Heavy malty initial, fruity with wheaty banana notes, a decided alcohol presence. Quite sugary. Heavy and filling. Tasty, packed with flavor.

Overall certainly a nice tripel, but it lacks a ’deep’ taste. Not something that I’d probably buy again soon.

Vighals (2416) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2015
Tåkete lys brun med høyt hvitt skum. Lukter gjær, korn og fudge. Fyldig søtlig, karamell i starten men litt for mye alkohol i avslutningen.

Picked up the wrong bottle at a convenience store in Tokyo. I had intended to buy the Bruin. Anyway, this is nice, golden, spicy and rather well bodied, with an incredible aroma and flavour of fruity bubble gum. It’s not bad!

the aroma is malty and spicy with hints of dry wine, yeast, grapes and some spices... the taste is malty and fruity with notes of apple, grapes, light wine and, a little bit, citrus... bitter and dry aftertaste...

wozap (490) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - NOV 14, 2015
Buteklowane 15.05.2014 pite pod koniec daty terminu 15.11.2015. Złote, klarowne, piana wysoka drobna i średnia, lekko zdobi szkło. Aromat białe owoce, winne, szampanskie. Krótka owocowośc w przedzie ust przechodząca w ustach w wytrawność, podbita wysokim nasyceniem i mocna zaznaczoną goryczką (single hop Sazz i jest konkret) wręcz łodygową.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2015 Chemisch, bijna overdreven snoepjes zoet. Enorm bruisend in de mond. Tja... Een tweede poging was beter: Wat zoet en wat kruidigs in aroma, aardig vol en een hier en daar een metaalsplinter. Smaak is zoet met zuurtje, waar zoet ietwat gemaakt is, naar fruitsap neigend. Zuurtje is sterker aanwezig in nasmaak. Wel fijn bruisend in de mond. Balans is wat weg, en elke slok brengt rating in gevaar, beide kanten op. En dat is natuurlijk ook wel kunstig. Van Theemutz gekregen.
