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.

2014 Bottling served at room temperature
A - Under reasonable pressure. Pours a cloudy golden color with a single finger of white head. The head is long lasting leaving a nice amount of lacing.
S - Has a yeasty, floral nose with a hint of grapefruit.
T - Hints of bourbon (very light) with similar qualities to the smell.
M - Moderately full mouth feel with no coating qualities. Very carbonated
O - A nice Belgian style ale. I don't imagine it spent very much time at all in the bourbon barrels. I wouldn't get it again but it was worth trying once.
