At a tasting, thanks, small creamy head, very cloudy orange color with yellow taints, bourbon aroma with vanila, slightly charred wood and sour bread, a bit alcoholic, flavor of bourbon, vanila, coconut and wood with a hint of nuts and alcohol, not too heavy for the ABV. Nice but a bit too bourbony.

Un bière qui appartient à un style qui ne me plaît habituellement pas. Celle-ci par contre, c’est autre chose! Blonde, dorée, profonde, mousseuse et vivante. Le simple fait de la contempler me met en joie! Très chênue, notes vineuses, beaucoup de pomme verte, un important baril et des notes alcoolisées d’un bourbon chaud assumées. Très facile à boire malgré un sucre résiduel important, il faut se méfier de ce look gai et invitant qui monte rapidement à la tête...

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Bottled 1/14. 11%. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, cookies, fruitiness, malt, caramel, and an alcohol note. Sweet flavor with bourbon, vanilla, some fruitiness, caramel, a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied, rounded. Nice.

Pours hazy golden, lingering white head. Sweet nose, I’ll accept the suggestion that it’s bourbon, otherwise I’d suggest it’s high alcohol malt sweetness. Easy in the mouth, bourbon predominates. Low to moderate carbonation. Finishes a bit sweet, bare hops. Essentially, it comes off as a boiler maker made with good ingredients.

I am in love (lust, perhaps) with this beer. While I haven’t kept track, I’ve probably sampled by now beers from around the world numbering in the thousands. And as it currently stands, Curieux is my personal favorite. If I could easily afford to drink this nightly, I would. What do I like about it? Everything! It pours a golden-orange color, leaving a mid-sized creamy head that leaves behind a gorgeous Belgian lace. The aroma is of a tantalizing Belgium-meets-Kentucky essence, making one very curious to discover what Curieux tastes like on the tongue. And how does it taste? Luscious!!! There is a creamy texture to it that lingers on the tongue. You taste a smokiness from the bourbon barrel aging and the exquisite harmony and balance of the malt and hops of this tripel from what has been one of the best (perhaps THE best) brewer of Belgian beers outside of Belgium. I feel like I am drinking an Old Fashioned made with high-end bourbon and at the same time I’m drinking a Duvel-level brew. I taste white pepper, coconut, blood orange, butter-and-brown-suga- glazed bananas with pecans, and a lingering oaky tobacco smokiness -- all hitting my tastebuds in the right degree. On second thought, I lust for this beer.

Pepper, orange, notes of banana and oak is present but not overpowering. Appearance is a cloudy yellow with a white head. Flavor has notes of lemon and light pepper. Bourbon flavor is present and balanced with the beer. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium high carbonation. Overall, it's a well balance bourbon barrel aged tripel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was worth every penny I spent to have it on draft. I don’t think I’ve enjoyed a beer this much in a while. It was like a re-awakening for me. There’s an undeniable bourbon aroma first and foremost. It sweet, smokey, full of vanilla, banana and clove. Super aromatic and delicious. Taste is a big punch of bourbon, pipe tobacco, clove, banana, and oak. The whole beer is very well balanced and everything works in perfect harmony. Nothing overpowers or takes away from anything else. I really enjoyed this, and would not hesitate to pick up a bottle every once in a while for a special occasion. Definitely recommended. Cheers!

Pours hazy blonde with a quick white head. nose is all oak and whiskey with just a hint of sweetness. whiskey comes out strong on the front and fades to a more familiar tripel sweetness.
