COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kasteel Tripel aged in Cognac casks.

Thrill to that full, rounded taste, that delicate touch of cognac and the smooth, bitter aftertaste of this unique gourmet beer. Trignac is a real collector’s item. Only a limited edition of Trignac is brewed.

GothGargoyle (1364) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
Thanks to Bernt for sharing the bottle at Cafe Derat, Utrecht. Cloudy golden yellow with virtually no head. Aroma is pear, cognac, marzipan, apricot, calvados. Medium bodied, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, sweet on the palate and quite complex. Taste is calvados, butterscotch, dried apricots, cognac, dried mango, Delicious.

tmoreau (2527) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Shared corked & caged, 750 ml. bottle, 2012 vintage poured to snifters, displaying a hazed, orange color, with a modest, but silky layer of white head foam, and light, web-like lacing. The nose was esters as lemon & orange, with touches of yeast & spice, and a hint of sweetness. Light to medium bodied, with almost overly spritzy, champagne-like effervescence, the taste was similar notes as the aroma, but the alcohol expression was a bit too hot, imo. Followed through, but a little disappointed.

Nice and great beer. Full of aroma. Well balanced after aged in oak Cognac caks. Very limited item. Do try these at home ;-).

yngwie (13938) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle, 75cl corked. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a dense, off-white head that lasts and leaves lacings. It’s malty and sweetish on the nose, with alcohol, dried fruits and some resiny hops. The flavor is quite sweet, with pale malts, white sugar, dried apricots and some bitterness. Full body and a soft carbonation, quite high level though. Lasting sugary and bitter finish with a herbal touch. Too warming this one, but far from bad. 140830
