While barrel-aging beer may seem commonplace in 2016, it was certainly unusual in 2004 when Allagash released their first barrel-aged beer, Curieux. Allagash has always been innovative and ahead of the curve, while never sacrificing balance and finesse. Curieux is a great example of this. Based on a Belgian Tripel, it spends eight weeks in Jim Beam bourbon casks. Then prior to bottling, the final beer is blended with fresh tripel to achieve the right balance of flavors and cask character. The end product is a deceptively easy to drink beer with delightful esters and hints of vanilla and coconut.
