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.

Bottle. A little past noon. Poured a gigantic foamy head. One of the largest I've poured. Foam lingers. Aroma of some sweet candy, sugar, orange, lemon. Spicy yeast notes in taste. Slight warming alcohol. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LasseVPedersen (453) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. Pours clear, golden color with a massive carbonation release and airy, stable big white-off head. Aroma is fruity and refreshing. Citrus and apples with sweet malt and yeast. Flavor is medium sweet, perhaps towards the border of very sweet, fruity with pears and apples. Spices in the middle along with yeast. Finish moderate bitter, drying with high-alcohol concentration. Warming.

75cl bottle. Nice, regular tripel. Pretty cheap and really good value for the money.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is fairly sweet with some biscuit malt. The flavor is full of biscuit malt, sugar and toffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.6
StoreMy (29) - Nesttun, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2013
Golden yellow, with a sting of orange og light amber if you prefer. White head could have been more compact. Fruity and yeast aroma, with flowers and herbs. Light and fruity taste for a trippel, with fresh twigs, fruits, citrus and earthy flavor. Ends up with a mix of apples and citrus.

3.8
SarkyNorthener (5012) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle from National Brewery Centre, Burton on Trent. Golden amber beer with small head. Aroma of yeast, orange citrus and cloves. Taste follows the aroma along with the alcohol warmth and other spices. Very nice.

3.2
EpicWardrobe (79) - - NOV 19, 2013
Yellow/orange with a nice creamy white head. Aroma is sweet, alcoholic, fruity yeast. Taste is very sweet, fruity, high alcohol finish, highly carbonated. Full bodied, smooth (almost syrupy). Ok tripel, but a bit sweet imo.

3.4
Westkyoto77 (640) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle. Poured a deep amber with a solid white head. Boozy nose of cherries, liquor and a touch of citrus. Body nice and sticky, reasonably high carbonation. Tastes of dark fruit and caramel, with golden syrup in there too. A touch too sweet for mine, but solid stuff overall.
