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.

mutz (984) - 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 carobonatacin que mantiene viva la cerveza todo el tiempo. Color ambar algo turbia. El aroma es claramente afrutado destacando algn ctrico y muy agradable. Al paladar se aprecia cierta graduacin de alcohol, sabor a pimienta y amargor final que compenza el dulzor inicial. El final deja una sensacin de cerveza potente de gran calado.

PapaVillum (891) - 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.
