Bomber bottled June 2013 at 40 degrees into weizen glass
Aroma of coconut and curry – delightful!
Head large (7.5 cm), off white, frothy, slowly diminishing into a 1-2 mm layer
Lacing OK – multiple islands of varying sizes with primarily tiny bubbles
Body medium yellow, hazy – much bottom sediment and one large surface floater
Flavor of coconut and Thai curry – not too spicy, just very flavorful; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation

Appearance 3.25, Aroma 4, Flavor 4.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.81. Final weighted score: 4.1
This was a good example (for me) of trying something against my better judgment and being well rewarded. I’ve been disappointed by most New Belgium offerings and only tried this because I love Thai curries. Surprise! This is a very aromatic beer in which I can actually taste the coconut mulled with the spices – a mild curry but still very good. Gotta find the sales receipt from whence this came to buy some more.

Served in a snifter at Tap House - Des Plaines.

Continuing my run through some LoF beers in the shadow of Svengoolie, let's try out the Coconut Curry Hef, shall we? It pours a cloudy tawny-orange topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises cinnamon, light allspice, clove, coconut milk, and a bit of orange zest. The taste brings in more of the same, the spices taking charge and mixing well with the coconut milk. In addition, the orange zest now comes across more as chocolate-covered candied orange peel, and a bit of exotic spiciness enters the fray (I'm guessing the curry here). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly creamy feel. Overall, a surprisingly really good beer. The flavors mix extremely well and meld very nicely with the base hef. The bartender and I agree here.
