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.

A: notas de cítrico e de conhaque são explícitas. A: cor dourado intenso, excelente cabeça de creme, e lacing. T: álcool perceptível, esteres frutados com presença de maçã, pêssego e uvas verdes, sabor de vinho branco seco e dulçor maltoso e conhaque bem aparente. P: corpo pesado, alta carbonatação, média a baixa persistência, e notas do barril aparentes. Calor alcoólico médio a alto. O: Uma tripel envelhecida em barris de carvalho de conhaque extremamente gostosa, o sabor de conhaque se destaca, mesmo tendo 12% ABV de teor alcoólico não é uma cerveja pesada. D: alta drinkability, realmente é uma cerveja que vale a pena ser degustada. Considerações: por ser uma cerveja com produção limitada, e preço pouco mais elevado, é uma cerveja que deve ser experimentada ao menos uma vez.

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

Very good. Nice nice tripel. But the aging is just a wee too much; would've benefitted from being blended. Quite sweet, and the cognac is just a tad overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

langeveld12 (265) - 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.

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

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.

Trappist1 (615) - 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.

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.
