1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Yellow/white very muddy body (like some types of hefe weissbier), NIce creamy head. Very heavy aroma of coconuts. Not excactly my favourite. Sweet coconut flavour, more moderate than the aroma. A bit watery. No no no! (26.04.07)

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Smells like a Hawaiian drink served in Thailand.... It has a yellow color, with a whitish blury sedimentation. Nice, white, compact foam. The aroma reminds me of a solarium. The flavour is nsurprisingly not so bad, maybe due to low expectations? Its flat, almost no carbonation, and has a systetic finish. Thank God it is fairtrade :-) Nice bottle!

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2008 bottled. I was bullied into buying this. I won’t name the culprit. I had it last year at the Belgian Beer Weekend and I didn’t totally hate it...but I was completely pissed (hence my fascination with the coconut shell it’s served in), so that doesn’t count. I hate it this time, sober with no doubt. It does smell a lot like coconut oil. Taste is a disaster full stop - loads of coconut milk with a metallic tinge. I was hoping it would taste like Coconut Dream cake. Not even close. The right ingredients, the wrong combination. Damnit, I want a good coconut beer! And my money back!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Delierum Café in Brussels
To attempt to drink an entire glass is almost dangerous! Taste like Panama Jack coconut sunscreen smells… or pina-colada mix. Although the beer does look nice in the glass with it’s hazy golden body and billowing white mound of head. Luckily, I now never have to worry about my innards getting a sunburn.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
330ml bottle. Now we are talking serious beer here!!!!! This is for specially non-interest beer drinkers, or maybe just for the hardcore raters that just have to try everything. OK, I’m one of those – but this is not easy to do serious. It looks like a wit beer, milky and light orange body with a decent but short head. Aroma is like suntan oil you would expect to find on a 50 year old lady at Costa Brava beech (or maybe a 40 year old guy with mustache, gold chain and a two size to small tiny black bathing trunks.) Flavor is really sweet, concentrated coconut substance and just a faint hint of something acid. This is not drinkable at all.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Small fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Spare lacing. Hazy orange colour. Aroma was heavy coconut with some underling malty sweet notes. Taste like a soft drink. Thin bodied with a soft carbonation. Flavour was medium sweet, not bitterness to balance this beer. Heavy sweet coconut finish. Synthetic is the overall impression, not very pleasing to drink.

Picked up a 330ml bottle of this one at Centra in Oslo. Awful hazy yellow body with white foam and some laceworks. Coconut aroma. Taste like sugar water with coconuts. Very, very sweet (16.03.2007).

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
How nice; a drainpoor for my #1700 rating. :-) Aroma of coconut/pinacolada. Cloudy, yellow coloured beer with a white head. Taste is sweet, a sticky and perfumed sugar sweetness. Very ugly. Offcourse coconut aroma’s dominate. Nothing good about this one. Specially not the fair trade. I don’t think the trade was fair. The ingredients were of bad quality.

holy hell this is awful.
Ever lick suntan lotion off of someones back? The only thing memorable about this beer is they serve is in half a coconut.
