Notes/Commercial Description:
Allagash Curieux was the first foray into barrel aging. Curieux is made by aging our Tripel Ale in Jim Beam bourbon barrels for eight weeks in our cold cellars. The aged beer is then blended back with a portion of fresh Tripel. The resulting beer is soft with coconut and vanilla notes, with hints of bourbon.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a slightly hazy light straw color with a nice head and minimal lacing.

S: Scents of fresh Belgian yeast with citrus hops and light hints of alcohol fumes.

T&M: Nice tripel taste with quality yeast, citrus hops, warming alcohol. Smooth, light bodied.

Quality brew and glad I was able to get it locally on tap. Probably not my favorite Belgian style due the the priciness, but definitely worth a try for a special occassion.

Serving type: on-tap
