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

Poured into tulip glass, golden hazy with massive 3 finger head. The retention is really sticky around the glass. Bottle dated August 2011.

Beer aroma has big estery Profile of dried fruit with pineapple, orange peel and spices.

Taste of clove, vanilla, dried fruit present. Very much like the aroma. No boozy syrupy dissapoinments. Does not taste strong at all for 11% Abv.

Mouthfeel has well balanced carbonation, effervescent and finishes clean but not dry. Very creamy.

Phenomenal example of a golden Belgian triple. The barrel aging takes the edge off and gives A super smooth profile. It's worth the $.

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
