Unclear pale yellow appearance, medium low head. Strong coconut aroma with some malts. Sweet, refreshing and definitely untypical fruit beer, but overall not outstanding.

330ml bottle in Hemelvaart Bier Cafe, Bedale. Served in half coconut. Golden colour, foamy white head and coconuty aroma. Taste is sweet, coconut, milky, fruity, marzipan, tangy. Light to medium bodied, soft foamy carbonation, lingering coconut through to the finish. Quite OK.

Again, huge thanks to Gnomix and Hmeljita for getting something I would’ve probably avoided and letting me try it! :D Poured a milky ochre/beige body. Aroma... Coconut assault (and battery), some marzipan underneath. Kinda like Rafello, if Rafaello had marzipan (hmmmm). Taste... coconut (oh how surprising), ending slightly lemony/sourish. Not undrinkable really, could’ve been far far worse, but not particularly appealing either.

Bottle from strait and narrow, Lincoln. Pours lively, and settles to a near opaque Hazy pale gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is soapy coconut, like coconut shampoo, very unappealing. Taste is sweet with a slight sourness too a bit bland and sickly. Medium body with a bit of oil, slight carbonation. Not good.

Bottle (drunk out of a coconut shell!) at Delirium, Brussels. This was a really sweet, synthetic taste, not impressed, i thought this was potentially going to be so much better but unfortunately the beer failed to deliver, I’d class this more of an alcopop than a beer.

Parece refrigerante de Malibu. É bastante doce, tanto no aroma quanto no sabor. A coloração é de um esbranquiçado turvo. Vale muito como experiência.

Marduk (2969) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 18, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy yellow color. Sweet, candy caramel, strong coconut in aroma. Coconut, sweet, candy, faint citrus in taste. Soft carbonation. Strong coconut and oranges in aftertaste. Coc’o’nuts!

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 0,33L bottle, BB 07.2016. Pours opaque yellow with white head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is fruity, sour, coconut. Flavor is very sweet, coconut, fruits, some sourness. Overall: doesn’t feel like a beer at all.

darrennelson12 (429) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
In bottle (Bruges); aroma was quite nice of coconut .. almost of coconut rum or a suntan location. Taste though was not good ... creamy, very sublte coconut and watery. Just OK .. I would not buy again

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2014
The coco Mongozo, with coconut milk and quinoa, as well as coconut aromas. Thick, creamy, moussy, snow white head, hazy light yellow colour. Coconut and coconut milk dominate the aroma completely, apart from a toilet soap kind of odour and some sourish graininess, which probably represents the quinoa. Very sugary taste, thin mouthfeel, very strong, sweet and bit sourish coconut taste, cloying in the finish. I found this even worse than that banana version, even if tasted from a half coconut shell, as it is apparently advertized.
