3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really, a BOISE review is the FIRST?? Christ, I have had this a few times in the last week... Folks are scared to enter this one first... I am too. :-)
The first 2x bottles that were shared with me showed a nice hazy golden brew with a decent short lasting white head... THIS bottle has tons of little flecks of what assume are spice or coconut remnants in it.. They are caking all over inside the glass... no head and no retention.. just specks of lord knows what.
The nose is fine and does deliver on the labelís promise (sort of)... there is plenty of curry (garam masala??) with a nice toasty coconut aroma.. the hefe notes are lost and might be picked out as banana, but I am probably imagining things.
Flavor mirrors the nose with an everpresent "bite" from the curry that builds with subsequent sips.. Still the coconut comes up and out. A bit peppery and cardamom builds.. perhaps some cumin and coriander .. The only "hefe" notes I get might be from a bigger ABV fermented out into some banana and "my mindís palate" clove.
Pretty thick across the board with a connoisseur appreciation if done well... The brew delivers on all fronts... but for the "geeks", it is one and done...

On tap at Brews Brothers in Middleton, WI - Pours hazy golden with a filmy white head. Nose is ginger and clove with a light wheat base. Taste is lots of maple syrup, clove, ginger, and light malt. Itís really spicy, but itís pretty tasty. Too much maple syrup, and no hefe notes at all.

I like this one. I shared with family )and didnít 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 didnít 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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 wonít appeal to everyone.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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
