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.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2012 From 330ml bottle to Glass Aroma - roasty, hay, woody, a pleasant smell that is not overbearing Appearance - amber, orange colour, slightly hazy. head frothy to begin with, settles quite quickly Taste- Medium sweetness with a small amount of sourness and bitterness, rather smooth yet not overly sophisticated Palate - Medium palate with a slick texture, lively carbonation, close to being over the top yet still enjoyable, finishes dry and bitter. poured to instruction - 4/5 to glass, 1/5 to small shot glass, - shot glass was dry and cleaner than full glass flavour.

33 cl bottle. Golden color, slightly hazy. Rocky white head with thin layer retention. Aroma’s: fruity like a triple, with some grain & malt. Retronasal it’s sweet-ish (candy-sugar), fruity, light herbs. Flavor is light sweet, light fruity sour, light bitter. Medium bodied. Finishes light herbal, light bitter. Pretty decent triple actually.

Icedwarf (1158) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2016
Helder donkergeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is krachtig, licht zoet en hoppig bitter. Erg goede tripel die een stevige afdronk heeft, niet iets om zomaar weg te drinken.

jamaty (1769) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 28, 2016
Aspecto típico, pajiza, algo turbia, espuma efervescente muy duradera. Aroma frutal, levadura presente. En boca es frutal, notas de melocotón, naranja. Muy muy seca. Amargor creciente. Cuerpo. Gas bien marcado. Postgusto seco y amargo. Calor alcohólico final, que no se refleja en el trago. Notable

ectuohy27 (962) - ESTONIA - APR 25, 2016
Quite drinkable and pleasant with no off elements(but some fusels and other surprisingly un-Belgian alcohol notes), it’s simply too thin to be a proper abbey tripel, even if it’s enjoyable

goofy34 (67) - Saint jean de vedas, FRANCE - APR 24, 2016
Avant tout le goût que j’adore : réglisse, épices et petite amertume et pour finir l’alcool qui réchauffé la gorge. La couleur est sympa, jaune orangé...à mon goût c’est une super bière

leduardol (109) - - APR 5, 2016
Dourada e leve turbidez: "enevoada". Creme de altíssima formação mas média duração e com muito rastro no copo. Aroma com álcool se sobressaindo, dulçor frutado e notas herbais. Corpo médio, com álcool se destacando em alguns momentos e desequilibrando o conjunto. Amargor bem presente no retrogosto e final seco. Garrafa de 330ml - Luxemburgo, Luxemburgo (5/4/2016) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
