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.

bierkoning (11870) - La Tropica, - 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.

MarcoDL (3630) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle. Golden pour. Nice aroma of boozy grape, cognac, caramel and subtle vanilla. Rich taste of strong boozy grape, caramelly malt, smooth vanilla, oak, subtle yeast ester and a nice cognac finish. A pleasent surprise.

Nose: yellow pulp fruit, a bit sweet, definitely fruity, not much balanced but truly nice. Mouth: frizzy carbo, very nice Cognac character, Belgian yeast orientation, rich, some orange zest, bit pungent peppery end. Dry finish. Really nice.

markwise (5082) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2016
2012 Bottle from Beer Frog in Spring Hill. Pours a deep yellow-gold with a very thin white head that disappears. Nose is some cognac, some apple, some light oak, and sweet malt with some fruit. Flavor is similar with apple, cognac, light booze, some oak, and some fruit. Light to medium in body and some lingering cognac into the finish.

OnlyRogueAngel (42) - - JAN 6, 2016
Shiny golden Kasteel tripel, with a thick, firm, pillowy head that lasts, leaving light lacing. A mild beginning, with a sudden explosion of sharp, fruity taste that warms and softens to vanilla, citrus and cognac, from the barrels it was matured in. A unique taste that is well worth investigating.

chupachups01 (38) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle shared at Beer for Geeks Tasting Room. Complex sweet aroma. Taste is surprisingly light slightly fruity sweet. Overall very drinkable. Surprisingly so for a strong ale.

sudomorph (1010) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
2013 750 ml bottle. 28173/30000. Pours a hazy golden orange with an active head that thins to a thick film. Carbonation streaming from the center of the tulip glass. Aroma has notes of green apple, citrus, dark candy sugar, dark fruits, and champagne yeast. Taste is very slightly sweet. Citrus, apple, dark fruits, dark candy sugar, and a touch of wood. Medium body with a high carbonation. Slightly syrupy in the mouth with a medium dry finish. Overall a nice, high carbonation beer. Green apple, citrus, dark candy sugar, and a hint of wood.

Hopverdju (347) - BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2015
Donker blond, amberkleurig bier met wit schuim. Geur: Zoetig, alcoholisch, fruitig, peer, nootachtig. Veel carbonatie, maar niet zo volmondig. Smaak: zoet, fruitig, honing, alcohol en cognac? Ik ben een liefhebber van een goede cognac en af en toe lust ik een Kasteelbier, maar laat ons dit maar appart houden. Voor deze prijs zijn er beter geslaagde experimenten!

Damico (3108) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Pours bright orange amber with a beige head. Aroma brings sweet raw dough yeast and sweetness. Flavor is similar, raw yeasty dough and some congnac notes in this version for sure.
