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.

Triple aceptable con un retrogusto muy amargo. El sabor es correcto pero no hay nada en ella que destaque para bien.

33 cl bottle. Golden color, slightly hazy. Rocky white head with thin layer retention. Aromas: fruity like a triple, with some grain & malt. Retronasal its sweet-ish (candy-sugar), fruity, light herbs. Flavor is light sweet, light fruity sour, light bitter. Medium bodied. Finishes light herbal, light bitter. Pretty decent triple actually.

Icedwarf (1400) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2016
Helder donkergeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is krachtig, licht zoet en hoppig bitter. Erg goede tripel die een stevige afdronk heeft, niet iets om zomaar weg te drinken.

jamaty (2036) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 28, 2016
Aspecto tpico, pajiza, algo turbia, espuma efervescente muy duradera. Aroma frutal, levadura presente. En boca es frutal, notas de melocotn, naranja. Muy muy seca. Amargor creciente. Cuerpo. Gas bien marcado. Postgusto seco y amargo. Calor alcohlico final, que no se refleja en el trago. Notable

ectuohy27 (1073) - ESTONIA - APR 25, 2016
Quite drinkable and pleasant with no off elements(but some fusels and other surprisingly un-Belgian alcohol notes), its simply too thin to be a proper abbey tripel, even if its enjoyable

leduardol (126) - - APR 5, 2016
Dourada e leve turbidez: "enevoada". Creme de altíssima formação mas média duração e com muito rastro no copo. Aroma com álcool se sobressaindo, dulçor frutado e notas herbais. Corpo médio, com álcool se destacando em alguns momentos e desequilibrando o conjunto. Amargor bem presente no retrogosto e final seco. Garrafa de 330ml - Luxemburgo, Luxemburgo (5/4/2016) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
