Jelly Belly has some weird jellybean flavors, but its latest may take the cake -- draft beer.

The iredescent gold-colored candies are modeled after a German Hefeweizen, with a wheaty taste and a slightly "yeasty" smell, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Sound disgusting?

Apparently, beer is a flavor Jelly Belly customers have been requesting for decades, the company said.

"It took a few years to perfect, but we think we got it right," Rob Swaigen, Jelly Belly’s vice president of marketing, told

Other cocktail-inspired flavors include pina colada, mai tai and strawberry daquiri.

None contain any alcohol.
