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

Sold as Kasteel Trignac Cognac BA Tripel at Mellow Fellow Reno. Interesting beer for sure. Glad it was discounted, but still pretty expensive. Nice marriage of classic tripel with light floral notes, spice and fruit. The barrel is light and imparts a little booze, vanilla and wood. Prickly feel gets better as it opens.

Marduk (6770) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 8, 2016
750ml bottle (thanks suurjuust). Cloudy orange color. Small size, off-white head, stays. Sweet, caramel, fruity, alcohol, yeasty, malts, orange in aroma. Sweet, vanilla, fruity, oak, toffee in taste. Sweet malts, vanilla, oak in aftertaste. Alcohol is present. Medium carbonation. I can tell its Kasteel tripel. Cognac barrels add another, pleasant dimension to it. Excellent sipper.
