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.

Had this one a couple of times over the past few months. It's a good one. Tripels aren't really my "thing," but I can see why this one is rated so highly.

Sweet, slightly boozy, crisp and possessing an interesting complexity, Curieux is a winner. I'm thinking 4.25+.
