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.

Craft Clerkenwell Tasting. Hazy gold bee, little white head. Palate is light and pretty dry. Fine carbonation. Fine dry malt. Very light touch of cognac. Little yeasty bitterness. Dry finish. Disappointing! But then I’m not a fan of the Kasteels. Yeasty dry and the cognac is bordering on wimpy.

yngwie (14069) - 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

Bottle at Rampkrot. Hazy yellow color, huge thick white head. Aroma of medicinal straw. Taste is sweet and sour straw. Very hi carbonation.

Leighton (11855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - big thanks to Ken for busting out the boozy Belgian beers! Pours clearish, yellow-gold with a light, white cream head. Nose of pale and bready malts, light honey, ripe fruits. Medium sweet flavor with moderate alcohol, light dry wood, some citrus, bread, yeast. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish with more yeasty and doughy pale malts, some lemony citrus. Not altogether bad.

bierkoning (10555) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2013
Corked bottle, 4558 of 9000. Pours a huge head. Raspberry, vanilla and hints of oak in the aroma. Malty sweetish, slightly alcoholic flavor with the slightest hints of cognac and vanilla. Hints of peach. Pleasant, but the effect of cognac barrel aging should be more noticeable.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle split at Craft Clerko, many thanks to Kenny, 26/06/13. #6561/9000. Hazed blonde/yellow with a good sized white head. Nose is apple skins, pear, booze, musty lemon, yeast. Taste comprises tarte apples, woody notes, Beglian yeast esters, tarte fruits, grass, light soap, oak soaked boozey tones. Full bodied, fine carbonation, boozey finish. Ok affair but the alcohol is a little harsh and indiscernible ie - I couldn’t pick out cognac.
