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 (11539) - 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.

eManu (514) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2015
From 750ml 2013 bottle no. 09871. With champagne cork. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head that staid some time. Aroma of malt and yeast, with nice touch of Cognac. Flavors of sweet malts, yeast, vanilla white fruits and a wonderful length of Cognac with hints of wood. Nice strong body with carbonation. Light sweetness and bitterness, and nice long cognac finish as it warms up. Nice surprise, delicious.

Pours a golden amber with fizzy head. Aromas of fruit and hella booze. Flavors of spicy hops, yeast, and some smooth boozy notes on the finish. Not worth the $30, but very good none the less.

750ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Winey aroma, champagney. Sweet fruit body, raisins. and more champagne, but a big waft of alcohol too. Not hidden at all. Finish raisiny, champagney and alcoholic. Small glass was all I needed.

Drank a 2013 bottle with Thierry @ Cafe Samson 16-10-2015. Really nice beer. Fresh, triple start but very lovely and rich vanilla and cognac taste follows. Good one.

Bottled@PBF X. Hazy golden colour with a small white head, which vanishes quite quickly. Aroma is pear, some cognac, mild nutty and marzipan notes as well as some alcohol. Flavour is fruity, some spices, honey, cognac and sweet maltiness. Also some mild alcohol to it.
