COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fruli is a high quality Belgian white beer blended with pure fruit juice. The strawberry juice compliments the zesty fruitiness of the wheat beer and the result is a natural, soft and refreshing drink that is simply delicious!

250ml bottle into a chalice. Not sure quite what to make of this. Pours a hazy pinkish orange with minimal head. Pleasant sweet strawberry nose, with a sweet fruit punch flavour. Reminds me of a wine cooler. Goes down easy. I could see having a couple of these on a hot summer afternoon, but not really my cup of tea if I’m just looking for a single evening brew.

Incredibly difficult to assess since it does not taste beer without drawing more towards carbonated strawberry aperitif. Should fit well in the summer heat as thirst quencher.

Aroma - the dominating scent is strawberry puree or strawberry cheesecake or Brach’s Strawberry Hard Candy Appearance - body color is an orange-pink color; the liquid is clear, but with sediment floating about; the head is white and starts about 1/4" and rings out with a little film on top. Taste - is sweet and no doubt full of strawberry but one could also be convinced on a blind test that it’s raspberry. Absolutely delicious, not at all what I think of when I think of beer, but still absolutely delicious Palate - body is light; the texture thin; the carbonation is lively; the finish sweet and medium in length That is really nice! It tastes and smells almost like a Brach’s Strawberry Hard Candy or a Strawberry cheesecake. It’s tasty, not at all what I think of when I think of beer, but absolutely delicious.

Pink color, frothy head that dissipated quickly and left no lace. Sweet strawberries dominate, and leave an unpleasant taste in the finish.

varanid99 (431) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2014
Cloudy pink soft drink style pour, no head - looks pretty awful in the glass. Aroma is huge, sweet, strawberry lollies, real strawberries, strawberry ice cream topping - a mix of real and artificial strawberry smells that is pretty punchy. It’s sweet, but not as cloyingly sweet as I was expecting given the smell. Taste is mostly strawberry syrup, it’s definitely not bad but reminds me a bit of pre-mix vodka and rum drinks.

Strawberry. Not bad for a fruit forward beer. Pours cloudy dark pink. Lots of strawberry flavour. Nice carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking, if you like fruit in your beer. Not yeasty or malty like I thought it would be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From 330ml bottle, mild sweet strawberry aroma and flavour, sweet (almost like a cider) and quite smooth. Don’t think it’s sessionable, but it’s interesting and well worth a try.

Pizd (429) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a pink/red with a pink-ish head. Aroma of strawberry tart and a weird bready/yeasty note that doesn’t fit. Flavour is very strawberry, like some kind of concentrated strawberry syrup. Not much else picked up. Not my cup of tea.

Osprey87 (1161) - London via, WALES - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle BB April 2015. Hazy red with a small pinky white head. Smell - strong strawberry - hard boiled strawberry sweets, strawberry syrup, honey. Body is medium, not foamy, very low carbonation, tacky in the mouth. Taste - perfumey strawberry concentrate, very sweet, sugar syrup. My sister liked it and said it’s a bit like snakebite, which I can see. It’s drinkable, inoffensive tooth rot which is fine at Christmas! I had to brush my teeth twice after drinking this stuff.
