3.93/5  rDev +17%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

appearance: Very hazy. Not seeing the coconut floaties I keep hearing bout but definitely thick with something. Fairly dark yellow gold. Pretty thick off white head and lacing. Not a bad looking beer.
smell: Very nice. Sweet and spicy with nicely balanced coconut and curry front and center.
taste: more of the same. Quite a nice surprise. Based on reviews I was worried this would be a failed experiment. Not at all imo. Interesting and well executed. Again, coconut and curry well balanced and front and center sweet/spicy. NIce dry rich spice finish.
overall: Well done. Pairing this with red curry, pecan encrusted fish.

Serving type: bottle

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.

3.6/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

This beer is just as described by the label, having a finely balanced blend of coconut, (yellow) curry and wheat, with a touch of banana (and probably subtle spicing) from the yeast. These compose the bold and spicy aroma. These components, and some addtional spicing, mesh nicely in the complex flavor.

Feel: medium-light body; lively carbonation; a touch of peppery heat.

O: well crafted but certainly won’t appeal to everyone.

Serving type: on-tap
