Not sure how high everyone was at the brewery when they came up with this... but it was defiantly horriblle. The curry floating on top was very unappealing and almost had a grits like texture when it went down the coconut was faint and crept up slightly behind the wheat and curry. Huge New Belgium fan but this was just straight up bad haha

11 ounce pour - $5.00 at Taco Mac in Crabapple, Georgia.
Appearance: Dark, dull orange-gold body, a bit hazy, with a slim, white head cap.
Smell: A beer that definitely delivers on its branded namesake promise, coconut and curry. Sweetish, plump malted wheat, additional notes of banana.
Taste: Sugary upfront angle (giving a hint of cream soda from time to time), then, coconut, fenugreek -- oh, heck, all the varied curry notes, and finally the 'nana from the full-on wheat inclusion. Additional slight warming quality from the alcohol content pairs with the heat from the curry blend. Slow finish with sustained sweetness and more of the coconut and curry.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Sure, it's a different, interesting combination, but, I would have preferred a slimmed down version in something less viscous and more effervescent. As it stands, it's heavy and heavy-handed in its aspects and not the easiest beer to get down.
Serving type: on-tap

Bright, golden, orange color with floating yeast flakes. Billowing egg shell white head with excellent retention and nice lacing.
Yeasty aroma. Hints of wheat. Bold spices, definitely curry in there. Subtle citrus fruit.
Mild wheat flavor. Smooth coconut. Spicy curry. Citrus and yeast flavor seems to clash with the spices. Strange tangy aftertaste.
Medium bodied. Descent carbonation. Yeasty, grainy texture.
Not too impressed. Nice complexity, however, the coconut and curry just seem out of place. It's definitely different and creative but not for the better in my opinion.
