this was one of my favorite beers i had on my texas trip, everything about it is delicious, and while it might take some flack from the purists, i love what they have done with this traditional style. ive long thought the coconut water flavor would be nice in a pale beer like this, and it really is well done here. nothing too sweet, syrupy, heavy, sun tan lotion tasting, artificial or anything, its just right. pale with a little haze, bright yellow still and a full inch of lazy white head on top. it smells really good, the patient lager/ale hybrid yeast aspect of a cream ale over a light pale barley base, but then at the end creeps in that tropical slightly toasty sunny warming fresh fleshy coconut smell, really well integrated. the flavor is like that too, where the cream ale is first and up front, solid as a base beer, and then the coconut comes in subtle on the back end. that aspect is almost more flavorful after the swallow, but its true to the coconut itself, quite mild and nutty, but unmistakable. really easy drinking, smooth and not too carbonated, sort of has a nitro feel to it. we always see coconut overly toasted and super spiked in dark beers and strong ales, so its really amazing to taste its lighter side here, not forced or unnatural, and in a beer thats perfectly dry that i want to drink ten of. about as well done as such a thing could possibly be. loved it.

Clear dark golden pour with a white one-finger head. Very light aroma with hint of coconut and grain. Very creamy and light bodied. Taste has light and sweet coconut upfront backed by bread and caramel malt flavors.

Appearance: Hazy medium golden colored, with a large, somewhat coarse off-white head, which soon fades to a sparse scattering of foam on the surface. The carbonation is coarse and rather vigorous.

Aroma: Toasted coconut presents strongly, utterly dominating the aroma. Pleasant grassy and herbal hops are present.

Taste:Toasted coconut, and surprisingly, slightly hot, spicy alcohol dominate the opening taste. Soon after, there are modest amounts of herbal hops, which serve to reduce the sweetness slightly. Late in the taste, the coconut shines. Finishes with a lingering note of lightly toasted coconut and spicy alcohol.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and quite full, very nice.

Drinkability/notes: The slightly higher ABV and over-the-top coconut is wonderful.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

This one must be polarizing. They nailed the coconut but it's lacking a malt balance. I would love to have this character on top of a porter.
