The aroma is hoppy, with spicy and fruity notes. The full flavour is characterised by a soft initial taste which develops into a pleasant bitterness.
Re-fermented in the bottle
Re-fermenting beer in the bottle is a meticulous process. We have to add the right amount of pure yeast cultures before the beer can be bottled. Then we store the bottles for around 2 weeks at 22°C.
Only then does the beer release its rich range of flavours. The gives it more pronounced aromas ranging from flowers to fruit and spices.
That’s why we put such great effort into producing beers re-fermented in the bottle. These beers reveal the brewer’s true craftsmanship all the more. The re-fermentation also enhances the shelf life to at least 18 months.
Just like wine, the flavour of re-fermented beers evolves and becomes even more round in time. In order to follow the taste evolution of Prior Tongerlo we specified the bottle date on the back label. This way you can discover when the beer has reached its full maturity, according to your own taste.
