Kasteel Trignac from the Van Honsebrouck Brewery is their Kasteel Tripel matured in recycled Cognac casks. They release only a limited quantity each year. These individually numbered bottles are from the 2015 batch of 7300.

Trignac pours hazy orange gold with a medium white head. Aromas of apple, citrus, honey, spice, and oak are augmented by the warmth of Cognac. Taste follows the aroma, and strikes a good balance, with the character of the base Tripel complemented but not overwhelmed by the Cognac. The mouthfeel is full bodied with active carbonation; the finish is dry, spicy, and warm. The barrel aging increases the Tripel's 11% ABV to 12%.

The Van Honsebrouck Brewery (makers of Kasteel beers) began as a small farm and brewery on the outskirts of Ingelmunster in the West Flanders region of Belgium.

Purchased in 1900 by husband and wife Emile and Ludovica Van Honsebrouck and expanded in the 1930s by their two sons, major success would elude the brew farm until the 1950s when grandson Luc Van Honsebrouck took over the business.

Educated at the brewing schools of Ghent and then gaining practical experience at a large German brewery, Luc would change the direction of the family business by breaking with tradition and concentrating on the production of high quality specialty beers. His vision proved fortunate, and made him a legend in the craft brew industry.

Today the Van Honsebrouck Brewery – still family owned and operated – distributes its specialty ales to at least two dozen countries including the United States, Canada, China, Italy, Brazil and Japan.
