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 collectorís item. Only a limited edition of Trignac is brewed.

Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Gent, Belgium June 2013 consumed at home 08.07.13 in company of Casey, Traci & Loz I hadnít realised that this was a Tripel until I poured it, seems rather strange to age a Tripel in this way. Pours nice, slight haze but golden with large billowing white head. Aroma is a bit boozy with some vanilla and yeast showing. Taste for me just isnít right at all, I guess that there is a decent Tripel before this experiment but it just comes across as a boozy confusing mess. You can certainly pick up the barrel ageing in the mouth but Iím not a fan. Nice packaging, poor beer. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov11 3.0

Sampled at the W&C Beer Fest 2015. It poured a hazy yellow color with a small white head. The aroma was of grapes and wood. The taste was sweet from the grapes with alcohol, some cognac and a bitter aftertaste. It had a medium body with some fizzy carbonation. Tasty.

Een heerlijke tripel, die doordat hij op cognacvaten heeft gerijpt, een zoetere afdronk heeft dan het bekende lichtzurige van een tripel. Zwaar qua alcohol, maar het us dan ook een geniet-bier ipv een wegdrinkbier. Klasse!

Caramel, butterscotch, smooth, fine bubbles lead to creamier texture, cognac and dark cherry from the casks

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.

Didnít take proper tasting notes. Tap. Sweet, boozy, warming, didnít find this too interesting. Perhaps when I pay more attention Iíll appreciate it more,

PriorL (2488) - 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 (2070) - 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

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. Itís really amazing.
