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.

0,3 liter bottle. Nice Tripel, but too average to get a regular spot in my fridge.

DijkBier (349) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2016
On draft in cafe in Gent. Clear golden with foamy white head. Aroma not too strong, of malts, yellow fruits. Taste us full, indeed yellow fruits and toffee, medium sweet, light bitter. Nice triple, better than his double brother.

jmgreenuk (9153) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 18, 2016
33cl bottle shared with friends. Poured a clear straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is yeast, creamy toffee malt, some alcohol. The flavour is moderate sweet with a crisp dry yeast, big alcoholic bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Zarrach76 (238) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 23, 2016
Belle blonde tirant sur le blond vnitien, bien transparente avec une mousse trs grosses bulles qui disparait rapidement pour laisser un collet de 3mm persistant. Trs beau nez de bonnes crales, avec des saveurs de gteaux secs, de sabl et de spculoos qui supplantent le fruit. En arrire, des armes dagrumes, orange, mandarine, pamplemousse et citron, avec une pointe daromates (estragon, coriandre). Pas vraiment dune grande complexit, mais les saveurs sont exquises et trs bien quilibres, lalcool sachant tre discret. Grosse carbonatation et belle fracheur en bouche. Les houblons sont trs bien doss. Lalcool est impeccable, les 9% ne submergent ni les gots ni le palet. Belle amertume, bien minrale, avec une astringence qui persiste longuement et de manire fort agrable. On sent aussi quelques pices qui viennent titiller les papilles. La bouche est souple, aucune scheresse. Une vraie russite, un bel quilibre, et surtout une bire rafraichissante qui fait oublier quelle est une triple avec une grosse charge dalcool. Excellent produit ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

kaserov (603) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 4, 2016
Color dorado claro, translcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retencin). Carbonatacin excesiva, para mi gusto. Aroma frutal mnimo, algo de levadura tambin. Sabor medianamente frutal (menos que en otras Tripel), algo amargo y con final bastante alcohlico. Muy unidimensional (y lo que ofrece tampoco es pa tirar cohetes). La carbonatacin no le pega porque en boca se convierte en algo efervescente que si bien en otras cervezas funciona (Orval, me viene a la mente, por ejemplo), aqu se hace difcil de tragar. Floja. Me sorprende la alta puntuacin (ni siquiera me parece la mejor de las tres Tongerlo).
