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!

larsga (6767) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2007
Small pinkish head. Pinkish opaque body. Sweetish strawberry and yoghurt aroma. Sweetish artificial strawberry taste with yoghurty, metal notes. A bit watery. Yucky strawberry metal aftertaste. Didn’t enjoy this. Left half the glass. (0.5pt keg at the Admiral Hardy, Greenwich.)

Grovlam (4167) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle. [Trade with yespr, Thanks buddy] Average creamy and reddish head that mostly lasted. Good display of film like lacework. Muddy and reddish light brown color with heavy lumps of what might be yeast in the bottom of the glass. Heavy strawberry aroma. Almost like strawberry jam, not like fresh strawberries. Sweet fruity undertones and a hint of acidic as well. Light bodied with a thin texture and an average carbonation. Heavy sweet flavor. Sweet strawberry finish. Not that bad.

This has a very refreshing fruity taste - tastes more of juice than of beer. The aroma is strawberries. The color is foggy rose. I like it.

dkazuk (248) - winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 5, 2007
250ml bottle.
Pours a murky maroon with a small bit of dirty pink head. Smells like strawberry jam. Taste is immediate strawberries followed by some bitter strawberries. Tastes like strawberry juice and sprite.

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2007
Bottle from LCBO. This isn’t beer. Honestly... An odd concoction of fruit juice and beer. The beer taste was definitely present, but I did not feel this was a good combination. Overly sweet followed by a bad lager taste. Avoid it.

Stefano (1901) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2007
Pours orange colour. Light creamy pink head goes away pretty quickly. Strawberry aroma. Extremely sweet and fruity jammy flavour with some grassy notes and a fairly tart finish.

dj (538) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2007
Bottle, 250ml. A densely cloudy raspberry colour with a medium-sized head. Aroma is sweet strawberry with lemon. Taste is predominantly fresh strawberry with some malt and yeast flavours coming through. A little wheat once it warms up. A somewhat citric finish. Quite dry and not at all artificial. Moderate carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

Gpnterojd (179) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2007
Pours dark, cloudy blood, very much like you’d expect an unfiltered ’white’ beer to look like with strawberry juice added. Tiny pink head. The smell is incredibly sweet, almost completely sugary strawberries (another reviewer likened it to strawberry jam, I like this comparison). There is some faint malt buried beneath the strawberry sugar aroma. Taste is lighter than expected -- while the nose is very sweet strawberry syrup, the beer finishes as a blonde ale or wheat. Sweet citrus lingers on the palate. Tasty, but not incredibly balanced -- especially in the aroma.

bottle: Well, i think you either like fruit beers or you don’t. Make that, you either love strawberry beer or you hate it. Thin to no head, dark cloudy colour . . . and really sweet. My wife almost likes this & she hates beer - is this a good sign? My beef with this beer is that it doesn’t feel or taste like a beer, but more like a cooler. Do yourself a favour & grab an amazingly flavoured belgian white (Blue Moon, Hoegarden), german wheat (Erdinger), belgian ale (Leffe Blonde), an abbey dubbel (Chimary Red) or even a hgh quality ESB (Hobgoblin), where you can taste fruit but still feel like you are drinking a beer. Now those beers are an amazing combo of fruit flavours & matls. This just tastes like strawberry juice/smoothie mixed with cheap lager, brutal.
