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 crisp and clean with a one inch soapy white head. The color is gold with no haze what so ever. A steady stream of bubbles rise from the stem area adding to the creamy film that sits on top. Modest lacing clings to the glass.

The nose is fruity and complex with peach, vanilla, honey sweetness and what smells like Belgian yeast which adds a touch of funk. I dig the smell of this one.

The taste starts out sweet and fruity with orange peel, bananas, lemons, wood and spices. Well balanced with the bourbon. I know some BB blends can be over the top but this is perfectly crafted. The hops add a nice little bite and the alcohol flavor is light and non offensive.

Mouthfeel starts off soft and smooth followed by some hop bitterness. The body is medium with average carbonation. Finishes warm and a bit dry, like a white wine. A smooth sipper and very drinkable.

Overall this is a fantastic Bourbon barrel tripel. I'd love to add this to my regular line up however my one hang up is the price. That being said it's still worth it.
