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.

Color dorado claro, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación excesiva, para mi gusto. Aroma frutal mínimo, algo de levadura también. Sabor medianamente frutal (menos que en otras Tripel), algo amargo y con final bastante alcohólico. Muy unidimensional (y lo que ofrece tampoco es pa tirar cohetes). La carbonatación 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), aquí se hace difícil de tragar. Floja. Me sorprende la alta puntuación (ni siquiera me parece la mejor de las tres Tongerlo).

Kolor bursztynowy, klarowny, zaledwie pó?centymetrowa bia?a piana, która momentalnie znika, pozostawiaj?c ?lad w formie pier?cienia. Aromat: zaraz po otwarciu butelki, chmielowe nuty owocowe ale ju? za chwil?, jedynie s?odowo?? i karmel z delikatn?, spieczon? skórk? od chleba. W smaku jest s?odko, obok karmelu jest cukier kandyzowany, dalej spieczone pieczywo, pieprz i delikatna zio?owo??. Goryczka lekka, sucha, trawiasta. Wysycenie wysokie, faktura piwa jest nieco wodnista. Niestety nie uda?o si? schowa? alkoholu. Prócz przyjemnego grzania w prze?yku jest on wyczuwalny w ma?o szlachetnej formie.

Solid Tripel. Lots of banana, clove, citrus and sweet bread on the aroma. Very pleasant and sweet. Theres a lot of yeast floating around in it and it looks sort of cloudy and wonderful. Taste is bitter, but sweet and refreshing. Definitely a big beer but you don’t even notice it’s 9%. Lots of banana and pepper in the taste. Overall, this is a great Tripel and kind of a surprise I found randomly. Cheers

Luneylane (192) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - SEP 2, 2016
A surprise discovery, along with its blond cousin, at Welcome in Muzha, drunk at home. Aroma: yeasty sgain. Appearance: slightly opaque, copper. Another foamy pour, big rocky head. Palate: thick and full-bodied. Taste: a good alcohol hit, but a bit too sweet for my liking. I’d happily drink this one again, but the taste seems a little one-dimensional, a candy flavour predominates.

ABS (1060) - Stokke, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2016
Bottle from Kvickly Nexø. Golden to light amber body. Lots of sugar flavour. Esters. Some yeast and malt. Sweet, some bitterness. Quite thick body. Medium to soft carbonation. Too much sugar flavour in my opinion.

det er en rigtig god øl lidt lys i farven flot hvidt skum som holder duften en lidt sødlig og malt, lidt frugtagtig smagen er bare henrivende god men drik ikke for mange, der en høj alc. %

Flesje gedeeld met Hillig. Goud kleurig, helder bier. Aroma van citrusvruchten. Smaak is fruitig en ietsje zoet. Nasmaak is iets bitter.

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