Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Coconut all over the place, a nice tasteful beverage but probably I wouldn’t call it "beer".

This beer pours like banana/grapefruit juice. Strong smell and taste of overly sweet coconut. Good for a one time try.

330 ml bottle. 3.6%. I2313318. BB 11/15. From belgianbeerfactory.com.
Came eagerly out of the bottle. Greyish pale yellow colour with a tiny white head. The aroma is tropical fruits, coconut, mild tartness, soap and scented candle. But it’s actually not that bad. However the flavour is. Very bad indeed. Like soda, coconut water, some fruits and a lot of sweetness. Yuch!

Yikes. Hazy yellow. Smells like shampoo. Taste like a cocktail, but greasy with it. Not for me.

A very nice fruit beer. Light yellow colour with a subtle but very nice coconut edge.

Kita (977) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 27, 2013
Bottled, 0.33l. Pours hazy straw color with tiny white head. Aroma of coconuts, milk, cereals and perfume. Taste starts with sweet coconut and malt, followed by light fruity and grainy sourness, while finished mild bitter. Medium body, sticky texture and flat carbonation in palate. Yo have to be nuts to really like it :)

StoutHead (604) - DENMARK - SEP 7, 2013
Drunk from a coconut so I couldn't determine color. Small fizzy white head and low carbonation. Taste was sweet and malty but mostly of coconut. Fun beer - especially with the way it was sweved - and surprisingly better than expected, but nothing I'd want to drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2013
Das Kokosnussaroma ist in Ordnung. Der Geschmack ist wie gehabt unterirdisch, da viel zu süß geraten, irgendwie wie flüssiges Bounty. Hat mit Bier nix gemein.

kraddel (2730) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2013
no idea what quinua is , but it contains 20 % of that, and 15 coconut ... @ antwerps bierhuyske smell is lactose, coconut low carbo . taste reminds me - as a mindfuck- to shampoo. cause i’ve onley smelled coconut in shampoo, my mind tells me i’m drinking soap . this is SO weird ... than again, i must day i do like the smell ( and , appearently taste ) of coconut . but , again, as with all the mongozos, as a beer , this is bad...

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2013
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 doesn’t 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.
