Brewed by:

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.

Creamy oak flavors, vanilla and whiskey behind a solid base tripel. Light fruit notes. One of my favorite beers unfortunately no longer sold in Texas :(

Wow- best tripel in so time. Super smooth for 11% would give any Trappist a run for flavor.

Remarkable beer! The oak barrels really shined through on this! Beautiful straw color with a great head of creamy foam. Intense vanilla and belgian yeast in the aroma and the flavor is an amazing balance of banana, hop, bourbon, and something peppery. Wow, wow.
