Cloudy pineapple colour with white foam. Aromas of pinacolada, coconut, pineapple and alcohol. Palate, carbonated with flat aftertaste, very watery with no body. Taste, like someone mopped up a pinacolada and tonic off the floor and this is the mixture. Overall, has the aromas like a fruit tea but actually taste like bath water.

Bottle looks like a cheap import from the Caribbean. The coconut aroma is much more in the smell than in the taste. Creamy texture but thin body, vaguely fizzy carbonation. Overall extremely bland, good enough as a novelty beer I suppose.

Bottle from East Anglia Wine Merchants. Pours cloudy white - just how I imagined (feared?) a coconut beer would look. Itís incredibly lively, causing some spillage upon opening, but it settled down soon enough. Lemon, plastic, fabric softener and a bit of urine on the nose. Having said this, the taste isnít so bad. Sweet and fruity with the promised tinge of coconut milk. Silky carbonated finish. Only slightly better than expected.

Cloudy, milky, pineapple/coconut color with lively white foam. Aromas of coconuts and alcohol and maybe bit of pineapples. Palate, plain water with somewhat sour back taste? High carbonation at start but flatens out quick. wierd? Taste, sour? I am trying to find some coconut in there but it really is hard :( Overall, it should be called soda that smells of coconuts while in a bottle. Smells nice though while in a bottle, when you pour it into a glass it smells different. So... If you are feeling overly adventurous go for it!

Bottle. Cloudy, almost milky yellow with a big white head. Smell of coconut, soap, yeast and chemicals. Sweet coconut and fruity flavors, artificial and cloying. Sticky and hard to drink.

Bottle at Great Expectations, Reading. Iíd previously suffered the grotesque travesty that is Floris Chocolat, and have since then been reluctant to expose myself to any more dodgy "flavoured" Belgian beers. However a friend of mine asked if I would share her bottle as she didnít want a whole one, and it seemed pointless turning down a free rate. First signs werenít good though- the bottle design looked cheap and nasty, whilst the beer inside was a cloudy blonde in hue with a meagre soap-sud head. Theyíre not marketing this one on looks! It smelled, unsurprisingly, of coconut. But I rather like coconut, and unlike many fruit beers it didnít smell too fake. To my further surprise, on tasting it the initial flavour was of real fresh coconut flesh rather than some ghastly artificial syrup. Behind this there was some pineapple, giving both some juicy sweetness and a little sharpness to balance. The whole drink had the feeling of a pina colada about it (albeit one tilted more towards the coconut than the pineapple) - it certainly doesnít look, smell or taste like a beer. And though it is sweet itís also quite refreshing- itís not like an alcopop either. Iím not sure Iíd want a whole bottle, but I rather enjoyed the half bottle I had. A slightly guilty pleasure maybe, but a pleasure nevertheless. Maybe I will give some more flavoured Belgian beers a go after all...

0,33l from bottle at Kšnguruh shared by gf. BB 07/2017. Served in what seems to be a fake/plastic coconut. Small white head. Smells of coconut, chalk, metallic, kinda weird smell. Light body, soft carbonation, quite full mouthfeel. Tastes light coconut, marzipan, sweetness, parfume, artificial. Finishes with parfume and artificial taste. Not a fan 6, 3, 4, 3, 9

YantarCoast (763) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 19, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours hazy straw yellow like a Belgian wit. Aroma is cinnamon, coconut shampoo. Taste is sweet coconut. A bit weird and doesnít go down very well, but better than their awful mango beer.
