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.

DWG; Pours hazy golden with lasting bubble off-white head. Aroma is yeasty, sweet fruit and spicy pepper. Taste follows with defined banana, sweet spice and alchol. Soft mouth. Warming with a bitter finish. Nice.

Heldere gouden kleur met goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig en iets bitter. Smaakt zoetig met een iets bittere afdronk.

Christos (5432) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 9% Crystal clear body, thick white head, two fingers tall. Soapy in texture, with very good duration, it left thick lacing webs around the glass once it collapsed a bit and during the drinking. Aroma is fruity, yeasty. Very typical tripel aroma, plus some alcohol notes. Nice taste, also typical but a touch above average. Fruity taste with peaches, yeast, sugar, some alcohol notes and an even more fruity aftertaste with light bubblegum brushes. Medium thin body, carbonation on good levels. More than okay tripel, it seems at first like your average one, but it shines on the aftertaste and overall experience.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2013 (Bottle) A pretty good Triple , man the lame ones are like something that a bumb should drink on Skid Row .. When I find a good take on a triple , like this one , my mind recalls a class A triple like St Feuillien .Im not one of those who hollas Westmalle as the epitome of style, never really liked it ... Drank this from a large Leffe goblet.. Reminds me of Coors light to look at , but doesnt drink down like Coors , nah !. sPiCy ,dry and toffeeish ..booze covered over orange zest ... but the booze aint in an obvious kinda sick jet fuel texture like some in this style- its slick.. A good take on a triple for sure !

TyggaBrown (430) - NORWAY - SEP 2, 2013
Pretty nice. 9%. Caramel and candy and lots of sweetness "belgian style" in both aroma and taste. Lots of character, and refreshing. A bit too carbonated, and I miss some aftertaste.
