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.

33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours slightly hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma of fruits, yeast, malt, spices and alcohol. Sweetand lightly spicy with a mild bitterness in the finish. Notes of bananas in the flavour. Ok triple, but not a favourite...

Vignale (3508) - 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.
