Round 2 for me and round 3 for Corby. He'll post about his experience with the Allagash Curieux. It is triple aged in Jim Beam barrels. 'Nuff said
My 2nd round was Breury Tradewinds Tripel from California. All I can say is that of the ones we tasted tonight it is my favorite. Tradewinds is made with rice in place of candy sugar and some Thai basil was added for spice. Not to dry and very smooth texture. Slight hop and with minimal malt overtones. With an 8% abv it goes down way too easy. One of the most exotic beers on PBB's list but I must say that C and W like very much.
We also tasted the Bosteels Tripel Karmeliet which was very light, and had a strong fruity/flowery aroma (pear and cloves). We both felt it lacked a any hop aroma or flavor. However, it was really light, dry, and clean after taste. With a 9% abv and because it is a high fruit aroma/flavor beer, it is going to sneak up on some folks.
