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.

Pours brass with pure clarity and a white froth. Pear, slight smoke and ripe orange to the nose. Tastes of more pear, taffy, a bit of grain, apple, burtn sugar and water-logged oak. Alcohol is prominent. Body is medium to heavy. This is my first, and hopefully not my last, go at a BA Tripel.
