BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Allagash Brewing Company
Maine, United States
allagash.com

Style: Belgian Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
First brewed back in 2004, Curieux was our first foray into barrel aging. To make Curieux, we take our Tripel and let it age in bourbon barrels for seven weeks. Once that time is up, we take the beer out of our cold cellars and blend it back with a portion of fresh Tripel. The resulting rich, golden ale features smooth notes of coconut, vanilla, and a hint of bourbon.

Tis a delicious gold concoction, the bourbon comes through nicely. It doesn't taste overpowering. Medium head. I like the subtle nature of this one. Another winner from Allagash

Bottled 11/17, drank 11/18. Only decent for me. Tripel is fine enough, but didn't pick up much of the coconut/bourbon notes. Priced too high for my tastes to revisit.

This was gif=vent to mine a gift from a friend from work, We love to travel to Miane and this is a special beer. Found myself continually glancing down at the bottle's label to be reminded of the make. I had already revered the base Tripel as it stands, but with the barrel-aging, and that oh-so-deceptively,,

A real great Triple!
