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.

A- A gorgeous bright golden body with a fluffy white head that settles some, but stays throughout the duration. Crisp and clear, with lots of carbonation bubbles seen rising through the body.

S- Lots of the traditional tripel aromas with pears, other tree fruits, hints of citrus, slight breadiness, and some oak and vanilla influences from the barrel.

T- Sweet and fruity pears and peach-like flavors give was to sweet bourbon with oak and vanilla coming through along with some sweet candied sugar flavors. Just a hint of booziness to finish it out.

M- Medium-high carbonation, very crisp and full flavored, with the body being on the fuller side. A slight hint of booze, but overall very drinkable.

O- Allagash tripel is one of my favorites for the style and this is an interesting take on a tripel. The bourbon barrels add an interesting element to the beer and works very nicely with the style.
