Brewed by:
Allagash Brewing Company

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.

Had this for the 2nd time last night from a 750ml.
Loved it the first time I had it and even more the second time.
It's just that price tag that keeps me away (but damn, it's worth it when you can shell it out)

A. Hazy, yellow, frothy, beautiful carbonation. Head lasts forrrrevvveerrrr.

S. Apple/Pear, boozy, fruity. Belgian esters, but nicely restrained and not blowing my face off.

T. I love this. How is this 11%? I don't get overwhelmed by the bourbon/high abv. Nice retrained belgian taste to go with the esters.

M. Get moar in my mouth.

I love this. I have nothing else to say. Take the plunge and spend the $18-$20. Worth.
