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.

11/28/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC so it's a real treat. Not your usual triple. Very mellow. Rorschach test lacing is picturesque. Rumors of coconut on the nose are verifiable but not off-putting.

Sweeter then I would have thought, but that's what I get from assuming. I'm of 2 minds here. It's notable but not memorable.
