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!

Why is this beer rated SOOOO poorly, I wonder, when it is claimed from the beginning that it is a fruit beer? What do you expect? It is cloudy and it looks to have real fruit infused into it. THe head doesn’t last, but the aroma is pleasantly strawberry - sweet, but also tart. Refreshing beverage - similar to what a "wine cooler" is to wine. I imagine I will come back to this one in warmer weather, sitting outside enjoying heat with this as an apertif of some sort.

Cloudy pinkish orange with a couple of bubbles sticking to the side of the glass - aroma of sweet strawberry syrup and lemon rind - kind of tastes like these fruity malt beverages that are so popular these days, only one that has gone slightly sour - the flavor seems pretty natural, though - pretty refreshing, just not something I think I’d try again.

On Tap at the Centro Cafe Bar, Manchester 23/12/2003 Amber red coloured with a hazy appearance. Fruity strawberry aroma and flavour. Slightly creamy hop finish.

DuffMan (6669) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2006
Densely cloudy, dirty pink. Fizzy effervescent head, gone before you know it. Smells like a strawberry cooler, tastes like a strawberry cooler-- sickly sweet. Not one I would come back to.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2006
Even with an agressive pour I only got a tiny head that quickly subsided. Looks cloudy brown with a hint of red. Strong strawberry aroma. Bubbly texture with a natural strawberry flavour, sweet but not too sweet.

butterfield (6) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2006 does not count
cloudy fruit beer, but with a slightly syrupy flavour and very gentle nose, another also ran. very average

Yikes. This looks like a mixed cocktail drink - opaque pink color. Heavy sweet overbearing strawberry tastes. Unbeer. Really quick a poor showing.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2006
On tap - Southwark Tavern Borough London. Oh my God!! A dirty muddy pink coloured beer which looks like a fruit smoothie with a white beery head. The aroma is like strawberry milkshake, with the strawberry pips and ice cream. In fact it is like a Strawberry mivvi. The taste is syrupy strawberry fruit and more milk shake, but somewhere in there is a hint of something not unlike beer. Dodgy.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2009 Clean. Strawberry bubble gum flavours. Alcohol is hidden. Actually refreshing on a muggy evening in the sun.

Actually smells and lookspretty good. Amazingly, tastes pretty much like strawberries too. Question is, why make a beer that tastes like strawberry fruit juice if people don’t actually drink (or make for that matter) strawberry fruit juice. I bet beer-hating girls would love this though.
