Light beer and coconut together. The glass it was served in, looked like a bottom of a real coconut. It was funny.

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

Appearance is cloudy yellow, with a thin white head. Aroma is really coconutty, a tiny hint of yeast. Taste is very sweet, a bit of citrus and pineapple/mango. The whole drink is more like a pina colada than a beer - but it is really tasty and smells great so I have to give it high marks. On the palate it is creamy with a light fizz. This drink has me stumpted - I don’t normally like a really sweet alcoholic drink but this tastes more like fruit juice and is delicious and smells great. I want to hate it but it’s really, really good. The only marks it loses are for not being a real beer. It also gets a bit sickly towards the end...

Pale yellow with rich white head. Excellent coconut aroma. Sweet coconut taste with some fruity sourness and lager beer background. Good as a desert!

Possibly best smelling beer I’ve ever had. Like great lemonade, and dough. Color is yellowish and hazy. Taste is really girly, and sweet. Truly great, and different beer. And of course I understand the people who complain, this is not a beer, but they are suckers with wrong attitude.

My Girlfriend got this served in a coconut at the rake.Weird piña colada style. Can this really be called a beer? I could drink around a thousand of these though.

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...

I don’t get why everyone hates this beer. I really enjoy it I’m drinking it from a coconut. The only thing I don’t like is the appearance. The taste is sweet cocomutty and slightly sour it only lacks more bitterness. I wish I was on a beach with Sun now.

Milky faint lemonade pour with ring of white head. Looks like a very strong mimosa. Brewed with quinoa and coconut? Certainly exotic. Smells like tropical fruit jolly ranchers. Tastes exactly like a melted pina colada. Seems a little backsweetened as well? Suprised at how well this turned out actually. I Wouldn’t want another, but I could see a girl crushing a sixpack on a hot summer afternoon.
