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.

RexTalionis (3752) - FINLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours clear golden in color with a foamy white head. Sweet sugary notes, peppery spicyness, honey and garden fruityness in aroma. Slightly biting spicy notes, fruity sweetness, cantaloupe juicyness and bit of earthy bitterness in taste. Nice, quite balanced and tasty tripel.

3.5
Christos (5781) - 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.
