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.

Had it at Allagash on a trip a few weeks ago (as we do not get Allagash in Colorado!). Wonderful, effervescent and light/citrusy, but with a well-balanced backbone of bourbon barrel taste. Just an incredibly balanced beer...if only they all could be like this one...
