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.

La Tongerlo Prior est une bire triple dabbaye qui mrite son titre (avoir une telle dnomination impose certains devoirs!), et qui sans tre exceptionnellement riche en arme et en complexit, possde cet quilibre, cette puissance et ce raffinement qui font delle une bire plaisante. Le raffinement sexprime ds la bire verse, par son blond dor limpide (EBC aux alentours de 16), par son effervescence marque, porte par de fines bulles donnant naissance une mousse blanche abondante de trois voire quatre centimtres (initialement). Le nez est plutt classique dune triple, mais prsente une belle intensit sur des notes de crale, de coriandre et lgrement fruit sur la pche et le miel. Lattaque est souple, avec une lgre prsence de lamertume et des armes de fruits jaunes prgnants. La suite permet lamertume de prendre son envol. Celle-ci, dune bonne intensit restera longtemps en bouche, aide en cela par un alcool (9% Abv) bien prsent et qui se fera davantage ressentir sur un final aux notes pices et prsentant une petite astringence. La corpulence, quant elle est moyenne avec une arrire bouche simple porte essentiellement sur les fruits jaunes. Dans lensemble la bire est donc agrable, pleine en bouche, avec alcool bien intgr et surtout une trs belle homognit, mais le manque de complexit dans les armes lui font rester au stade de bire plaisante. Ainsi soit il.

Vignale (3601) - Malm, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2017
Flaska frn Belgiuminabox. Ett halvr gammal. Gyllengul, relativt klar med medelhgt vitt skum. Stor fruktigt estrig doft med jst och kryddor. Eldig och estrig och kanske vl mycket ung potens som slr ut i ltta bensin och klistertoner som nog skulle mogna bort med tiden, fruktig och blommor med tangerin, pomerans och lite flder och syren. En potent klassisk och nog lite vl ung trippel. Bra redan nu.

Buena cerveza. Un aroma correcto, combinado con una apariencia amarillenta tirando a mbar. Un sabor agradable y un gusto en el paladar bastante fuerte, debido a sus 9% de alcohol. Bebida en vaso de una botella de 33 cl. No la recordar como una gran cerveza, pero si buena.

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.

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.
