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.

10 oz. pour into a tulip at Barcade, Philly.

A- Hazy golden body. Thin white head leaves a little lacing.

S- Quite fruity, with the Belgian yeast coming out. A little bit of an earthy, booze hint as well.

T- A dry earthiness, woody hint is rather apparent, along with a very sweet fruit and booze combination. I think the aging brings out the grain in the flavor as well.

M- Pretty light body. Easy to drink and bubbly; champagne-esque.

O- Pretty yummy. I think the barrel aging really brings out some new attributes to the traditional Tripel.

Serving type: on-tap
