It probably won't be too bad since he added the stuff to the boil, the flavors may not even come through. The first idea of a lemon/mint wheat probably would have been good.

Mahopma, Punjabi export and Pale India Ale. All Dogfish Head brews with India spices... Look them up for some ideas. My buddy is visiting his inlaws in Rehoboth and said they must be on an India kick since they're all on tap now.

I'd be concerned about the salt addition myself. Might mess with fermentation &/or bittering. And as long as the spice additions weren't to large,it could be interesting.

Sorry I never replied in this one. I REALLY did not like this beer... at first! After fermenting for a month or so then kegging and leaving it there for nearly a month, I still didn't like it. Then I bottled it off of my keg and gave 45 bottles to my buddy. He brought some back for me a couple of weeks later and they're actually quite good. The saltiness is odd but it's fairly faint. The nose is REALLY weird due to the coriander and dried mango playing off of the chinook hops. The flavor is quite good, though.
