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.

75cl schenkt helder gouden in met prikkelende en schuimige witte kraag. aroma van zoet, alcohol, amandel, bloesem, honing, en Belgische gist. Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, zwak bitter, redelijk fruitig, sterk alcoholisch, hout, vanille, zeer duidelijke cognac merkbaar, erg floraal. medium body, glad en zacht van textuur. bier niet te koud drinken, deze prefereert een iets warmere drink temperatuur dan enkel een tripel. verder aardig poging. niet super

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2015 Aroma: Nothing special, smells like a lighter version of a regular triple beer Appearance: A murky amber colored triple Taste/Palate: Triple and cognac; honey/flowers/fruit/bitter/sweet. From the moment this bear enters your mouth till the moment it leaves it, you will notice many different things. It’s really amazing.

Apple, cask, lemon, freshness. That’s the aroma! Slightly cloudy light yellow colour. Starts with a big white head. Cognac like taste with lots of alcohol. Dry, champagne like flavour with apples and pomelo. Pretty ok.

Opaque orange brown beer, slightly opaque. Foamy head.Smell is lots of vanilla! Some wood and hints of peaches, pears. Maybe some honey and caramel, but the vanilla dominates.Taste is vanilla sweet, bitter, with an oily feel. Fizzy. Slightly alcoholic. Bit too sweet for me, but it works with the vanilla and the wood.

Cognac barrel aged Kasteel tripel from a luxurious 75 cl champagne bottle; 2013 vintage. Moussy, egg-white head consisting of fairly large bubbles and therefore dissipating rather quickly; colour is a slightly hazy, warm ’old gold’ with quite strong fizz. Spicy, sweet and alcoholic aroma of orange liqueur, fair amount of cognac indeed, banana, powder sugar, cooked corn, cider, honey, vanilla-like wood tannins, caramel candy, canned pineapple slices, white pepper, soap, ginger powder, rubbing alcohol. Fruity onset, peach, pineapple and sourish gooseberry touch, strong and tingling carbonation, honeyish sugar sweetness cloying to the teeth a bit; bit corny and caramelly, sweetish middle phase, quite light in body seen the high ABV, with spicy notes and the lingering sugar sweetness playing above it. Alcohol becomes increasingly apparent towards the finish, as a sharp, bitterish, astringent effect, lining the whole mouth cavitity as if you’ve been drinking some very strong liquor. A clear and quite strong cognac taste remains, along with woody tannins and lingering sweetness. I don’t like the regular version to begin with so my expectations of this were low; it shares its dull and cloying sweetness and alcoholic profile with the regular tripel, with the alcohol even reinforced here considerably by the cognac presence, which is everything but subtle. Should be a lot more refined and less alcoholic, but fortunately I like cognac and the woody tannins lingering in the mouth balance out the sweetness a bit, so as a whole, this is still more or less enjoyable. But I did find it difficult working my way through the whole bottle, the aroma is clearly more promising than what the taste delivers, and it is definitely not worth the exaggerated price of 23 or so euro I paid for it - I do not recommend spending your money on this.

750 c&c from Healthy Spirits in SF, CA. Pours translucent gold with a foamy/frothy white head. Aroma seems fruit ester with hints of oak and brandy. Full bodied or nearly. Flavor is mixed fruit ester, and the brandy is clearly present. Oak as well. It’s not super strongly flavored, but the flavors are weak either. Heat no problem til it hits down below. Seems to get some caramel with time. Finishes towards dry, a litte estery, a little brandied, and slightly oak astringent. Seems a bitter finish. A little different, but there are some subtle aspects. Arguably underrated.

A little of everything -- sweet, rich, dry, fruity, malty, warm, simple and lush. Brandy, vanilla, plum, cherry, oak and barnyard yeast.
