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.

yngwie (14338) - 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

ogivlado (6012) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottled 750ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Bottle No 23480, vintage 2013.
Slight cloudy golden coloured, medium to big sized creamy white head that went away slowly, mild spicy alcoholic nose. Fizzy as hell. Moderate malty, slight yeasty, spicy and quite alcoholic with some odd cheesy notes. Discreet touch of cognac barrel. Alcohol and spices in the finish. High carbonation. Pretty average and a way too expensive (36US$) for what it is. In general waste of money so if you don’t have any real need for this AVOID IT!!!

Iphonephan (3714) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2014
From a 75 cl bottle shared at Ryan’s. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Banana nose. Flavors of banana lacquer and caramel. Effervescent. Pleasant but not worth the $35 price tag.

langeveld12 (259) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2014
Pours an average frothy white head that mostly diminishes. Body is hazy yellow with sparkles. Aroma contains moderate malts (cookie, grain, molasses), moderate hops (citrus fruits), light yeasts (soap) and banana, grape, raisin, apple, pineapple, cask wood, vanilla and alcohol (cognac). Flavor starts off light acidic, then goes to sweet with later on light bitter added and finishes in light bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Fruity and fresh with a warming finish with oak and cognac. It gets better when it warms. Very good, yet overpriced.

Trappist1 (611) - Diest, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2014
golden, hazy, off-white head (for so far it had an head). nose: vanilla, apples, banana, wood, alcohol all coming back in the taste too. Liqueurish taste (calvados instead of the armagnac ?). Might taste a bit synthetic. Sweet finish, still, some balance. Subtile, did like this one.
