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.

Pours a fairly clear golden orange. Very thin white head. Minimal lacing.

Nose is very sweet and fruity. Honey, peach, the bourbon can be detected a bit. Some vanilla and perhaps a few coconut notes.

Medium/light bodied. Good carbonation. Off dry finish.

Vanilla on the pallete, some fruit, bourbon flavor is there. Sweet.

Dangerously drinkable...man could a few small glasses of this really put you on your ass.
