In spite of its 7% alcohol content Cuvée des Trolls is a cool, light, lager-type beer with very well-balanced flavours, a fine, slight hint of bitterness and very low acidity; it gives off cool aromas perfumed with citrus fruits which come from the use of dried orange peel. It is a very pleasant, drinkable beer. Cuvée des Trolls Triple is a conventional Cuvée des Trolls which is then refermented in 75 cl bottles. This refermentation in the bottle helps to make the aromas stronger and fuller, giving the beer a taste which is explosive and yet still full.
Cuvée des Trolls in cooking
Cuvée des Trolls is very well-suited to use in cooking. Because it is only very slightly bitter, it can be used to deglaze cooking juices, or as a stock to keep meat or fish dishes moist while they are cooking. One other idea is to use it in vinaigrettes for salads, or else in mayonnaises!
