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.

33 cl bottle at Rembrandt in Tongeren. Almost no aroma, it was really hard to figure out. Tasted like metal, some bitterness and sweet corn. Average beer but i'd drink it again. Lovely glass and on the plus side, the last amounts of beer in the bottle are poured in a seperate shot glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamaty (1735) - 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 (951) - 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

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 (104) - - 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

Excalibur123 (339) - Soria, SPAIN - MAR 9, 2016
Presenta color amarillo oro turbio con gran cabeza de espuma de burbuja fina y buena retención en copa, aromas a levadura belga, lúpulo y azúcar Candy; en boca entrada media con ligero amargor, siguen notas florales, cuerpo medio a ligero con carbónico medio, retrogusto amargo y seco, correcta cerveza triple de abadía sin nada destacable.

Heel aardige tripel. Zacht zoet, fruitsapachtig. Moutig, zelfs beetje neigend naar amber. Enig probleem: hij is duidelijk alcoholisch. Verpest en echt goede score.

maekchu (3221) - 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.

BenWesthof (196) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
Overall certainly a nice tripel, but it lacks a ’deep’ taste. Not something that I’d probably buy again soon.
