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.

Color- cloudy, thick medium honey. Slight head.

Aroma- sweet with a slight turmeric and white pepper.

Taste- Starts with mild coconut then enters spices including mild turmeric, hint of clove and tiny hint of nutmeg, finishing with a smooth semi-sweet coconut finish. A truly unique and complex brew. Would pair well with Thai food such as masaman curry.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 10/14/2013.

I don't know how to go about this beer. For what they were going for, they nailed it. Aromas of curry actually come through in a pleasant way without being too much. The bottle had quite a bit of particulate - to be expected. Overall, I applaud the creativity and willingness to chart into new territory, however, I wouldn't seek this out again. It's a one and done.
