COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coconut Curry Hefeweizen has been pouring down the history of American Home Brewing for many years, from the legendary Charlie Papazian to the 2010 National Homebrewer, Remi Bonnart. The latter helped New Belgium brew this hazy, straw-colored gem to life. The aroma is bold and big with coconut and curry tones and a hint of banana from the hefe yeast. With a vast spice list of cinnamon, coriander, fenugreek, ginger, kaffir lime, and cayenne pepper this beer carries a bit of heat but the alcohol soothes the finish. Coconut Curry Hefe will leave an inquisitive smile on the drinker’s mug.

I like this one. I shared with family )and didn’t have the proper glassware due to being camping). Smells of a bit of spice. Drinking has a bit of peppery spice and follows up at the end with coconut. The coconut lingers more at the end than throughout the taste. This was one that five tried, and three liked. Two didn’t taste any coconut. I am definitely going to grab another bottle of this and drink it myself. It was what it stated it was...a beery that has curry and coconut flavor. Nothing artificial tasting. This is not for everybody, but out of the more unique beers, this is towards the top of my favorites.

Shared with Zach, pours a hazy lemon colored pour. Nose is spicy with cumin, curry and coconut. Taste is an easy appreciated coconut curry blend, straight up. Finishes on the same tasting notes, with some banana in the ending. Quaff Score 6 / 10

Bomber. Pours a hazy golden orange with a white head and aroma that has the coconut and curry. Taste is spicy, lots of curry and cumin Indian spice with coconut and wheat leading to a dry, curry coconut finish

chinchill (1713) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2014
This beer is just as advertised, having a finely balanced blend of coconut, (yellow) curry and wheat, with a touch of banana (and probably subtle spicing) from the yeast. Bold and spicy aroma suggests a more challenging flavor than what actually follows. . Feel: medium-light body; lively carbonation; a touch of peppery heat. O: well crafted but certainly won’t appeal to everyone.

Tripplebrew (775) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Pours a hazy golden orange with creamy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is sweet curry with undertones of red pepper and coconut. flavor is a bit of cumin and brown sugar. I do not pick up the coconut in the flavor. Body is creamy but with carbonation to lighten the body. Coats the mouth and lingers after sipped.

nick76 (4180) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2014
The aroma is very sweet with coconut yeast and curry spice. The appearance is hazy gold with floaters and a thin head. The taste is like the aroma with a touch of bubblegum. The palate is average. Overall really interesting and a great idea.

Palidor19 (2931) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Both the flavors that are on the bottle are very dominate in this beer, they are in the foreground and not the background. The curry is very spicy and lingers well after. This would be perfect with a great meal ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
