3.84/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy/cloudy light gold with a very thin white head that dissipates quickly. Consistent with expectations for the style.

Smell: As advertised. Coconut is very evident and the aroma is almost floral.

Taste: Lot going on here. First taste is a powerful spicy floral flavor, and the coconut flavor gives it some creamy smoothness. Didn't really pick up the curry until the aftertaste, but curry is definitely what I notice about thirty seconds after taking a sip. Flavor evolves throughout the drink.

Mouthfeel: Light, fizzy, bubbly. The spiciness gives it some kick at first but then smooths as the coconut takes over.

Overall: Very, very interesting. At first there was so much flavor it was almost abrasive, but they've pulled together a lot of interesting ideas and is definitely a unique experience. I rated this a "4" overall because as far as coconut curry hefeweizens go I'm sure this is good for the style (I wouldn't know because I've never seen something like this before). I was looking for a unique experience and certainly got one.

3.54/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.
