BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Allagash Brewing Company
Maine, United States

Style: 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.

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?
