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!

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (250ml). In my fancy-dancy Lindeman’s Framboise flute I bought in Bruges. Poured very lively, deep murky/cloudy pink-apricot-ruby, massive foamy, creamy and rocky pinkish-white head - stayed around quite a while too. Impressive lace on sides of glass. Tiny white particles dancing near the bottom of the glass. Aroma is predictably massive strawberry preserves (with pectin!), heavy yeast, and some orange peel, a touch of malt vinegar at the edge of my perception. Taste isn’t as sweet as I was expecting, more like strawberry preserves with a good dollop of rhubarb tossed in. Very treacly and mildly fizzy in the mouth; I had a crust of sugary jam on my lips for quite a while afterward. My wife likes it ...

Crockett (1012) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
Orange/red cloudy pour with some sediment. Tall foamy pinkish head. Yeasty barnyard, berry aroma. Quite sweet with just enough tart and carb to cut through. Orange accounts for about half of the flavour. Strawberries are juicey but aren’t incorporated properly. Wheat and yeast flavours are dull. Kind of clunky and thrown together. But, it’s not as horrible as your friends say it is.

I found this beer gross. It smelled good but oh man it was awful. It looked and tasted like someone blended up rotten fruit roll ups and Hoegarden and served to me!

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 2, 2005
An unclear red beer with no head. The is very powerful sweet with strong notes of strawberries. The flavor is mainly of strawberries on a wheaty background, while the body is thin.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2005
Muddy reddish-amber colour. One-dimensional strawberry aroma and flavour. Ultra sweet. Like jam on toast in a bottle.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2005
250 ml bottle, best before Nov. 2006. Very cloudy light red colour with golden highlights and a lasting forthy white head. Looks like a carbonated raspberry smoothie. Sweetened strawberry kiwi(?) aroma. Tastes like mashed strawberries that have been sitting in the fridge a bit too long, or the juice leftover from thawing frozen strawberries, (my mother picked a lot of strawberries when I was younger) with some light rotting bitterness to go with the strawberry flavour. Full and thick mouthfeel, lightly fizzy.

DerWeg (1525) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2005 ***WARNING*** not a Fruit Lambic!! It is what it is - a very red, very "fruit forward" strawberry flavored Wit. The sweet berry flavor is natural, and if it’s well-chilled I can get through a syrupy half bottle before it goes back in the fridge. I bet some of the ladies would appreciate this more than typical beer drinkers. Instant party favor.

Not bad. I don’t see what all the complaints are about- especially since I’ve never been a big fan of Lindeman’s Lambic.

Eructoblaster (3119) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2004
Cloudy dark peach body topped with a fair pale pink foamy head. Nose is dominated by a strong strawberry aroma, and so is the taste. Despite honest efforts, I haven’t been able to detect any hint of malt or hops. Tastes like Jell-O before you store it in the refrigerator, which is pleasant, but not appropriate for a beer. Considering the high quality of many products brewed by Huyghe, this is truly deceiving...
