3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy pinkish-red with a thick, creamy, lacy, lasting pink head. Smells of strawberry through and through. Very potent that fills the room. Medium thin body with soft carbonation. Tastes of sweet strawberry, candy “red” with a nice tartness on the finish with some sour notes on the finish. Consistent throughout and not too sweet. Very nice to drink and perhaps one of the best Floris “beers”

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Enjoyed on 10/18/2011
Had on tap at Delerium Cafe in Brussels.
I should start by warning that I am not a fan of fruit beers - they are generally too sweet or sour for my palate and I don’t enjoy them. This Floris Strawberry, however, might be the best of the sweet fruit beers I’ve ever had (ignoring the ones like Cantillon that are actually well balanced).
Poured ruby red into a tall pilsner with minimal head. Nose was absolutely blasted with strawberries. Like walking in a field of fruit in spring.
Excellent mix of sweetness and berry tart on the tongue. Supper bubbly, like champagne. The CO2 acidity nicely balances the strawberry sweetness. Very crisp! Perhaps some hint of other berries, possibly black raspberry. Little bit of Rhubarb-like tartness at the end. Just a touch of alcohol lets you know that it is actually a beer.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2016 As a strawberry drink and dessert beer - the best for me. Not subject for taste evalating as a beer, but of course much better than juices of the same taste. Meanwhile has witbier cloudiness (and nice strawberry red color), nice white foam, leaving the rings on the glass.

2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tiny white head, clourdy dark orange colour. Great strawberry aroma (but not a beer aroma at all - I like strawberry, so I’m fine with this). Tastes like sweet strawberry soda - and quite fine as that. Can’t give a good rating, however, since there is nothing "beery" about it.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy strawberry red (no surprise there) with a very strong strawberry aroma. The off-pink head recedes fairly quickly, Almost no lacing. No visible bubbles except when pouring.
Very Sweet Strawberry aroma is unmistakable.
Sweet strawberry taste. Light mouth-feel.Fizzy carbonation.
A very refreshing strawberry drink.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a bright red colour with a slightly red tinged head. Aroma is of course strawberry with little else. Taste is strawberry and more strawberry, tastes a little artificial but still decent enough. About all that can be expected from Floris I guess.
