theSlipperyPen (236) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2013
Hazy pink with an off-white pinkish head, though perhaps a shade of grey in there. Nose is of strawberries and rock candy. In the mouth it’s much the same, but delivered with a heavy dose of sugar and a light bitter/sour end. Strange combination of tartness and sweetness. Not a pleasant palate - rather slimy. And it all gets a bit sticky towards the bottom of the bottle. Okay for a strawberry juice and better than a lot of alco-pops; just not really one for beer drinkers.

McTapps (3879) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a cloudy light red colour with low steady head and medium to thin body. Aroma of ripe strawberries. Taste of artifical strawberries, hay and straw. Strange bitter finish which makes it awful to finish.

kidmartinek (3617) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Cloudy amber with a red tint and a white head. Aroma is malty barley and wheat with strawberry and a little metallic. Taste is confusing... malt, honey, strawberry, wheat... there’s too many conflicting flavors going on. The finish is very, very acidic.

Aroma is very sweet like strawberry bubblegum. Texture is pleasantly thick. Flavour is generally very sweet and strawberry like. Finish is a touch watery.

lesifflebiere (1242) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Robe rouge tirant sur le rose, presque fuscia ; mince, pas de bulles ni de mousse. Des fraises, des framboises, des baies rouges ; le goût fruité est omniprésent, avec une légère âcreté contrebalancé par le sucré. Un brin pétillante, mince et goûteuse. Il serait facile de rejeter du revers de la main une bière si aguichante, si facile d’accès. Toujours faut-il réussir à relever le défi d’être à la fois originale et savoureuse ; la Floris remplit ses deux mandats, pas à la perfection, mais de façon fort respectable, et très agréable.

GoufCustom (795) - HONG KONG - MAR 31, 2013


330ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long. Cloudy, hazy and dull light ruby red colour with dirt-like yeast sediments ; Very thin head and off white foam which last about 30 seconds; Small and sticky lacing with notable carbonation; Aroma of fresh strawberry, strawberry juice, rhubarb and sugar; Medium sweet taste of strawberry juice, very light malt, carbonated soda water, molasses and light white wine; Mid to light body, thin but slick palate; Taste profile is largely strawberry - fruit and juice - with moderate sweetness accompained by mildly tart vinery taste. Its body is suitably thicker to back up the sweet taste. A nice feature. Hoppiness is manifested in aroma, bitterness is close to zero, with sweet and dry as finish; Pretty dry after taste, extremely easy and tempting to mouth.

Comments: this is quite a well-made fruit beer. Compares to Van Diest’s Fruli Strawberry, this is thicker in body, with appropriate sweetness, tartness and refreshing taste. Perhaps the best fruit beer from the Floris’ fruit beer line up. Recommended.
