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 donít 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 itís really, really good. The only marks it loses are for not being a real beer. It also gets a bit sickly towards the end...

Possibly best smelling beer Iíve 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 piŮa colada style. Can this really be called a beer? I could drink around a thousand of these though.

33cl bottle. Pours a cloudy blonde/yellow colour with a generous head. The nose has creamy coconut. The taste has greated coconut then a cleansing peachy finish. The palate is medium bodied and medium textured with a clean finish. Overall, this is surprisingly good despite the fact that most people have marked it low.

Iíd like to rate this beer as I THINK it was intended. As a coconut drink. For that, itís ok. As beer, itís not great...
