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.

Bottle at BFG15, masterclass. DRank besides a small glass of Kasteel Tripel, to compare the two. A bit darker than the tripel, dark yellow. Aroma has a good hint of cognac. Taste is fuller, more body, alcohol shows up but not bad. Good one.

Tap @ Cafe Moortgat. Dark brown coloured, off white head. Nose is caramel malts, sweet malty, spicy, bit of cognac. Flavour is caramel, cherry, some sourness, cognac, fruity, spicy and boozy. Fairly sweet finish.

Mooie oranje kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt vanille, kruiden, hout, cognac. Smaakt vanille, cognac, redelijk alcohol.

Didn’t take proper tasting notes. Tap. Sweet, boozy, warming, didn’t find this too interesting. Perhaps when I pay more attention I’ll appreciate it more,

PriorL (2459) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2015
Sample at Essen Kerstbierfestival 2014, shared with Mathieu87. Found back notes that where lost. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, nice stable white head. NOSE: oak, caramel, fruity, some alcohol. TASTE: oak, caramel, fruity, some alcohol, nothing special though. Way too expensive normally, glad I could try this at a festival

ShivanDragon (2001) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
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

MelvinKalksma (46) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2015
Aroma: Nothing special, smells like a lighter version of a regular triple beer Appearance: A murky amber colored triple Taste: Triple and cognac; honey/flowers/fruit/bitter/sweet Palate: 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.

Bosskie (509) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2015
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.
