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.

Goede tripel. Drinkt lekker weg, is voor een tripel vrij licht. Schuimkraag blijft lang staan.

lello4ever (1249) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
UPDATED: APR 14, 2016 Birra belga d?abbazia bionda con schiuma bianca grossolana. L?aroma è fruttato e speziato, lievito, bevendola dopo un inizio dolce si rivela secca e frizzantina, non troppo lontana da una Orval, con un corpo deciso. Piuttosto alcolica, i 9% non sono affatto nascosti. Molto piacevole.

Une belle triple au nez fruité, assez élégant et à la bouche équilibrée, assez suave, avec une belle finale fraîche.
