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.

Had this one a couple of times over the past few months. It's a good one. Tripels aren't really my "thing," but I can see why this one is rated so highly.

Sweet, slightly boozy, crisp and possessing an interesting complexity, Curieux is a winner. I'm thinking 4.25+.
