Allagash, Curieux, Belgian-Style Golden Ale, 10.2%
Brewery: Allagash Brewing Co.
Style: Belgian-style Golden Ale
Aging the award-winning golden ale in freshly emptied bourbon barrels layers the beer with notes of vanilla, caramel, oak, and a hint of bourbon. First brewed back in 2004, Curieux remains their most popular barrel-aged beer.
To make this beer, they age the Tripel in bourbon barrels for approximately seven weeks. After that time is up, they blend the barrel-aged beer with a portion of fresh Tripel, to bring out the beer’s notes of passion fruit and honey. The result is a flavourful and multi-layered ale with a crisp, dry finish.
