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.

Bottled December 2011. Consumed NYE 2013. Done side by side with a fresh bottle. Major improvement with the aged bottle. The beer is more well balanced with the bourbon, I would never complain about Curieux it's one if my favorite beers and a local classic. But compared to the 2011, it was sweeter and more pronounced. The qualities of the triple and the bourbon are well blended to form a real classic.
