2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 330 ml, poured into a tumbler at home. ABV 3.6%
Pours a pale white beer, extremely hazy . This looks like a banana juice. Less than one fonger of white head, average retention, some traces of lacing left on the glass. For a beer it doesnít look so appealing.
Lots of coconut on the aroma, along with lemon-like aromas. A bit artificial.
Not a bad taste, provided you like coconuts and sweets that have coconut in them. Obviously lots of coconuts here and very sweet but on the finish there is some acidic lemon that tries hard to balance it a bit.
Very thick body, quite carbonated, but less than a soft drink.
It was good for one time, maybe it would pair good with a coconut based dessert.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle thanks to Colin.... Gusher! It pours pale cloudy cream with no head. The nose is all about the sweet coconut, coconut butter and white sugar. The taste is sweet coconut, pineapple, pina colada, green banana and sugar with a sweetish finish. Lightish body and low carbonation. One-dimensional and pretty sweet. Very Pina Colada. Not actually as bad as I expected!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle split at Bruceís pad, from Beermerchants, 31/07/13.
Gushtastic cleansing Paul and myself in beery coconut goodness.
Hazed mute yellow, akin to stale dishwasher liquids, thin white head clears to edge.
Nose is coconut shampoo, pina colada, sweet sugars, light tropical notes, parfumed furniture polish.
Taste comprises coconuts, sugars, artificial flavours with the coconut/tropicals.
Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet sweet finale.
Too sweet - it is what it is !

Gedronken uit kokosnoot. Ziet eruit als vla. Smaakt als als síen bounty. Geen bier.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Bruce tasting. Cloudy pale cream with white head. Aroma of coconut, dove soap bars. Taste of coconut but like coconut scented soap. A bizarre beer (not really fair to call it a beer). Canít decide if I hate this or not.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Bruceís - London. Thanks to Colin. A gusher! Pours hazy, pale white with a mild, filmy head. Smells like some kind of fruit juice, a bit of coconut. Medium sweet flavor, some oily coconut, a bit of lime, pineapple. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Tastes pretty much like a piŮa colada. Subtly artificial but not bad overall.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow that made me think of a watery wheat beer. Minimal head with fizzy white foam. The aroma is - surprise - coconut, albeit with a nasty touch of cardboard. Starts very sweet and isnít bitter at all. It has a fruity body that comes close to white grape juice. The palate is pleasant: note watery and a lively carbonation. Very different and very refreshing but I wouldnít make it my standard drink.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Turbid yellow with minimal head.
Powerful coconut aroma, with sugar powder, flowers and honey.
Sweet, somewhat artificial coconut flavor, zero bitterness and faint light malt.
Light, juice-like, hard to drink and gimmicky.
