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.

Poured straw colored with a slight haze.
Created a nice long lived white frothy and sculptured head.

The beer created a wonderful fruity aromatic nose.

The flavor was loaded with spice, coriander, citrus, hops, hints of yeast, malt and a bouquet of other flavors that I can't recall at the moment.

Mouthfeel was a blanket of lively spice and effervescence.

Overall this beer was beyond the classic Belgian Triple- the flavor complex is such that with every bottle I would find flavors that I didn't know were there.

I wonder if this beer will age well?
