1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a pale, cloudy straw, with a firm white head. Looks like grapefruit juice with foam.
The aroma is like someone made a frontal attack with a Bounty bar, drenched in Hawaiian Tropic. Coconut overload.
Intensely sweet, medium body, low bitterness, balanced CO2.
Taste is all coconut and sticky sugars, with hints of citrus and/or pineapple. Now, where’s the beach? (2012-07-19)

Coconut aroma and flavour, of course. Mellow, like a soda pop. Not unpleasant.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy white/pale yellow with a small white head. Good lacing. Aroma totally dominated by sweet coconut, with cinnamon, some grain, and yeast. Taste is very sweet coconut, cinnamon, and grain. Not really what I would call a beer, but not bad.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Tastes like a real simple construction of tastes and coconut is not a very great mix with beer.

Complexa cerveja de coco, possuiu uma bela coloração amarela esbranquiçada e um equilibrado aroma de coco com levedo de cerveja. Meio doce e indigesta depois de alguns goles.

Aaaaaaahhhhhhhh! Daddy, daddy! Please tell me it isn’t true, that it was all a big nightmare and I never drank Mongozo coconut! That I wasn’t disgusted since by anything with coconut flavour.
We drank this one at Bier Central in Antwerp. We asked the waiter if he could surprise us with his choice. And were we surprised.... If hell had a taste, it would taste like Mongozo. Or maybe that’s what hell is like, drinking mongozo all day.. And though I have no hard evidence, I am convinced that the waiter was actually Satan in the flesh. I suspect he just wanted to get rid of this stuff.... And fed it to some thirsty looking dutchmen. Pure evil I tell you.
So no recommendation here.... If you like Malibu, and actually doesn’t like beer, you might like this one. Then again, why would you go to a place called Bier Central if you don’t like beer.... (you can’t tell me it’s sold in more places out there). But it’s actually a sort of lemonade, a gruesome lemonade. Cola is great, so is ice tea. But even for lemonade this one’s pretty horrific.
Surprisingly I did finish the bottle. But that’s just because I’m dutch: if I’ve paid for it, I’m sure as hell going to drink it too!
I just thought of a plus!
It says on the bottle it’s fairtrade. First of all: FAIRtrade?! What’s so fair about producing crappy beer and then selling it? This beer is everything except a fair trade. But anyway I helped some poor farmers to earn some decent money. If they would only realise what they have done to me.....

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Delirium served in a nice ’tacky’ coconut shell.
On garde la même recette que les Floris et on met ça au goût Fairtrade.
Bref, dorée, brumeuse, col blanc.
Le tout sert son but, on retrouve de la noix de coco avec ce profile typique de quinoa donnant un léger profile de fin de bouche plus sec. Malheureusement le tout comme toute la série des Floris reste affreusement artificiel. Dommage pour une bière qui se veut équitable.
On retrouve un léger profile de blanche, le tout restant trop sucrée et un peu industrielle.
