2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy dark grapefruit juice with a thin white head. Aroma of strawberry Certs or slushy.In mouth, too sweet with unfruity lactic points, astringent in character. Cloying and unpleasant. From the Beer Store...why???

Pours very cloudy red with a pink head (Now there’s a first!!!!). Strawberries and raspberry aroma with notes of citrus fruits. Flavour is very sweet strawberry with a tart finish. Mouthfeel is very sticky & thick. My wife enjoyed this one quite a bit more than I did - She finished it for me...

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2011 Pink milkshake colour with lots of foam. Very strawberry aroma, enough real strawberry with the actual fruit bits, that the beer is disguised. Satisfying, well carbonated. Good fruity dessert aftertaste.I am not running after fruit beers, but this was the most natural of the many presented this summer in Ontario.
Truly strawberry, still not 100% natural.

Bottle at Maison in NYC. Poured a ivory small head that mostly diminished, fine-large sized bubbles, poor lacing, no visible carbonation, and an orange hue. Sweet strawberry aroma and a sweet, sour, strawberry flavor. Refreshing and smooth. Smooth, dry mouthfeel. Light body.

Short rating....Tasted in Toronto, obtained from LCBO. Tasted in raftman snifter. Appearance is strawberry red, foamy with a disturbing opaqueness. Aroma of sweet fruit, manufactured rubbish and intestinal squabble. Flavour is sweet, non-impressive yet lovely. Oh well.

We have this on tap at work, to tell you the truth, you don’t feel like your drinking a beer, it is however, refreshing, strong strawberry taste and goes down smooth, this is fine to have one pint but no more than that

Yes, it’s one-dimensional. But it does score a few points for it’s cloudy appearance, big head and fresh, juicy smell. Too sweet and not complex enough, obviously, but there’s something there.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fruli pours a sparkling red body, with a thick and foamy pink head that stays the course. Aromas here are fruity, strayberry for the most part, some other berry aromas. Some yeasty notes hit the nose as well. Taste is sweet fruit, sour as well. Reminds me of a fruit drink, as opposed to a beer, or a lambic for that matter. My girlfriend’s sister loves this stuff. Hey, at least I’ve got her off of coors light, right?

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2006 Bottled 25cl (BB 08/2006)
Hazy red-brown, small reddish head. Strawberries in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweet, grassy - strawberry flavor. More like drinking strawberry juice than beer. (4/3/3/3/10 2.3).
Re-rated, draught@Porterhouse, Dublin. Hazy dark red-pinky, small reddish head. Strong aroma of fresh strawberries. Medium to full-bodied, lots of "fresh strawberries", almost like drinking strawberry milk shake. Not overly sweet. (7/3/7/3/13 3.3)
