3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Great Expectations, Reading. I’d 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 didn’t want a whole one, and it seemed pointless turning down a free rate. First signs weren’t 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. They’re not marketing this one on looks! It smelled, unsurprisingly, of coconut. But I rather like coconut, and unlike many fruit beers it didn’t 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 doesn’t look, smell or taste like a beer. And though it is sweet it’s also quite refreshing- it’s not like an alcopop either. I’m not sure I’d 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 Känguruh 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

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Pours hazy straw yellow like a Belgian wit. Aroma is cinnamon, coconut shampoo. Taste is sweet coconut. A bit weird and doesn’t go down very well, but better than their awful mango beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Troebel lichgeel bier met veel schuim. Smak is zoet, kokos overheerst. Verder een wat vreemde bijsmaak mogelijk van de quinoa. Al met al best aardig.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from deeside drinks. Pours a white/yellow with a white frothy head. Aromas of cinnamon, Artificial coconut and sun cream. Taste is a rank over sweet coconut soap mixed with Malibu which leaves a unpleasant waxy feel on your tongue. Even the sink didn’t enjoy it.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
One of the worst chemical products ever drink in more than 40 years of tastings. Is it a beer? Who are the drinkers of this thing?

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma strong artificial coconut, bees wax, kind of like the Winter incense oils. Pale hazy colour. Short lasting head. Taste is quite sweet and has similar flavour components as aroma. Seems very artificial, but not bad per se. It is quite sweet but not to the point of cloying and remains reasonably drinkable. I say a good attempt at something that was never meant to be craft.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A murky orange-yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. Strong sun cream coconut smell, some spice and a tad beery. Dry mouthfeel. A strong coconut led taste, sticky and syrupy, with a creaminess and a hint of spice that suggests a certain degree of hoppiness! The finish is dry and coconut filled.

Fľaša 330 ml zo Seoul Plaza Bratislava. Svetlá kalná farba, jemná, ale hustá biela pena, kokosová aróma. Stredná nasýtenosť, jemne nasládlá chuť, kokosová príchuť. Zaujímavé ovocné pivo.
