Bomber bottled June 2013 at 40 degrees into weizen glass
Aroma of coconut and curry – delightful!
Head large (7.5 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing into a 1-2 mm layer
Lacing OK – multiple islands of varying sizes with primarily tiny bubbles
Body medium yellow, hazy – much bottom sediment and one large surface floater
Flavor of coconut and Thai curry – not too spicy, just very flavorful; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation

Appearance 3.25, Aroma 4, Flavor 4.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.81. Final weighted score: 4.1
This was a good example (for me) of trying something against my better judgment and being well rewarded. I’ve been disappointed by most New Belgium offerings and only tried this because I love Thai curries. Surprise! This is a very aromatic beer in which I can actually taste the coconut mulled with the spices – a mild curry but still very good. Gotta find the sales receipt from whence this came to buy some more.

Served in a snifter at Tap House - Des Plaines.

Continuing my run through some LoF beers in the shadow of Svengoolie, let's try out the Coconut Curry Hef, shall we? It pours a cloudy tawny-orange topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises cinnamon, light allspice, clove, coconut milk, and a bit of orange zest. The taste brings in more of the same, the spices taking charge and mixing well with the coconut milk. In addition, the orange zest now comes across more as chocolate-covered candied orange peel, and a bit of exotic spiciness enters the fray (I'm guessing the curry here). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly creamy feel. Overall, a surprisingly really good beer. The flavors mix extremely well and meld very nicely with the base hef. The bartender and I agree here.

Bottled a year ago June 20th 2013. Poured 6/28/14. Sister's boyfriend bought this not knowing how old it was, but I knew it came out at least a year ago... turns out I was about right. The bottle says it's fine to age, so let's see.

Appearance: Hazy light amber sort of color with some yeasty bits floating around as well. No lacing, and any head on it dies right away.

Smell: The combination of coconut and curry almost comes off as an all-spice or cinnamon sort of aroma. Unusual, and smells like something I'd have in Autumn or Winter, but still pleasant and unexpected. Curry and coconut can also be picked out individually though. Banana-like qualities from the yeast are there as well. Very interesting nose on this one, as I expected.

Taste/feel: Well, very smooth texture with a pleasant carbonation. Enjoyable to drink on a hot summer day like today. The curry and coconut have likely toned down over the year this was on the shelf, but it didn't taste "skunked", and actually tasted pretty good ---- very unique. No heat from the curry, but you get the flavor, and there's also a good amount of coconut flavors there as well. Again, though, cinnamon/all-spice sort of flavors come out, and the banana flavor is still alive and well. 8%? Who would guess?

3.75/5 overall just because it's unique and I'm impressed with how well it stood up. It's not an excellent, jaw-droppping beer, but it's a surprisingly and dangerously easy drinking beer that's really quite enjoyable.
