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.

This beer tricked me. My first experience was an ounce sample to see if I wanted the full pint. These two sips were really not enough to fully appreciate how awful this beer is. The sample was actually decent and definitely different. It intrigued me enough to try it. The sample taste crisp with a slight hot spice. There was almost no taste of the curry. As soon as I tasted the full pint I knew I had made a terrible mistake. The smell of curry powder was almost overpowering and was followed by a nearly unbearable taste. All I could taste was curry powder. I have a hard time describing this as a beer because to me it was curry powder mixed in carbonated water. I would not recommend this beer to anyone.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Pours a very hazy - almost murky - gold, with a finger's worth of fluffy white head that doesn't last for very long. Lots of visible carbonation with some floating brown chunks on top despite being conservatively decanted.

S: Husky wheat malt, yeasty sweetness and a touch of spices. But not a big aroma overall.

T: Wheat grains, light crystal malts, a curry spiciness and some fruity yeast esters (primarily banana). I don't get a ton of coconut flavor - perhaps a bit on the exhale when you work at it. Yeast esters and bready sweetness in the hang with touch of hop bitterness and spices.

M: Light body, adequate carbonation sensation, and the alcohol is well-hidden.

O: I don't think this is offensive, but the flavors just don't work in a hefeweizen style beer in my opinion. The coconut isn't big, which I think would have helped. The the curry flavors, while not terribly spicy, just don't get along with the wonderful subtleties that make a good hefeweizen. Far from a drain-pour, but not something I'd recommend.
