Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a solid ring behind.

S- Huge whiff of fresh coconut skin. Sweet and bright. Awesome.

T- Straight coconut flavor brings to mind a pina colada. It's sweet, but not overly so and there's just enough beer flavor to keep the intensity of the coconut in check. It's like I'm eating flakes of coconut. Once again, awesome. Hops are nearly nonexistent.

M- Standard pale ale feel with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- You'd better love coconut if you intend on drinking this beer. I, for one, love coconut and find this to be an excellent beer especially during the summer when the flavors are more appropriate. But, truth be told, I could drink this stuff year-round. So glad they started distributing this to NC.

A local brewery in a can found at the local WM, let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a big smell of coconut with a sweet malt taste that combine to smell like a Hawaiian Tropic sun tan lotion. Pours into my SAPP golden color with an off white head that dwindles but leaves a 1/4 inch standing. On the taste this brew has a coconut taste right up front followed by a sweetness in the middle, finishing with a balanced aftertaste of sweet and tangy but not much bitterness evident over the sweetness. This is a very unique flavor and is tasty and not at all offensive despite the sweetness. The sweetness is hemmed in by a hoppiness that evident but not bitter. Something very different for a change.

Pours a clean gold with clean white head from a can

Aroma- slight toasted coconut, buttered popcorn jelly beans- kinda weird

Taste- nice toasted coconut, that weird jelly bean note, finishes with light clean hop citrus

Feel- light bodied, crisp

Never had a "coconut beer," it's not bad, not great, cool idea and a little interesting
