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.

Enjoyed this 750ml bottle out of a pub glass.

A: Pours an extremely hazy orange hue with a thin white head that quickly dissipates leaving a partial trail and semi wispy lace..

S: Honey, citrus fruits, and Belgian yeast aroma.

T: Sweet and slightly tart flavors with honey, fruits, and little bit of almond. There is the typical tripel flavors but also so oak, bourbon, and maybe vanilla.

M: Very strong and boozy. Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Wow – delicious Tripel. I would have never guess a Tripel aged in oak bourbon barrels would taste like this.
