Allagash Curieux Barrel Aged Tripel

Audrey went on a press trip to Portland this weekend and got to tour the Allagash Brewing Company.  Needless to say I was super jealous.  I love beer and Allagash makes some great ones.  She brought home a 4-pack of Curieux, a Belgian Style Golden Ale Aged in Bourbon Barrels.

Audrey said she tried it at the brewery and loved it.  I was surprised, she’s normally a Coors Light drinker when she ventures into beer, an 11% Bourbon Barrel Aged beer at that.

I really enjoyed it.  It’s smooth with a hint of bourbon.  In all honesty, I’m not a huge fan of barrel aged beers but this one was great.  It was just enough bourbon.  Allagash puts out some solid beers, I’ll definitely grab this one again.  Hopefully I get to go up and tour the brewery soon!
