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.

GSAP (703) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2015 Chemisch, bijna overdreven snoepjes zoet. Enorm bruisend in de mond. Tja... Een tweede poging was beter: Wat zoet en wat kruidigs in aroma, aardig vol en een hier en daar een metaalsplinter. Smaak is zoet met zuurtje, waar zoet ietwat gemaakt is, naar fruitsap neigend. Zuurtje is sterker aanwezig in nasmaak. Wel fijn bruisend in de mond. Balans is wat weg, en elke slok brengt rating in gevaar, beide kanten op. En dat is natuurlijk ook wel kunstig. Van Theemutz gekregen.

Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, BB 21/11/16, large sample. Almost clear yellow to golden color, huge rocky head. Aroma is quite spicy, cardamom, earthy and floral hop, apple. Soft bitterness, quite alcoholic, bit sharp even, apple sweetness. Quite high on carbonation, fairly dry. Quite decent tripel, but a little on the alcoholic side.
