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!

[Draught] Reddish orange coloured. Rather artificial strawberry aroma. Sweet and sticky flavour. Wheaty.

Hazy orange red colour body with a moderate pink-white head that leaves some very nice brewers lace in the glass. Aroma is very sweetly strawberry which lead me to initially think that it was fairly artificial but I would be proven wrong as it lacks that funky chemical aftertaste. Flavour is dominated by sugary sweet strawberry flavours, with just a hint of pleasant tarter strawberry in the finish and the aftertaste. Palate is pleasantly highly effervescent and fairly smooth. I actually quite enjoyed this though it is admittedly far too sweet to have more than one or two. Best strawberry beer I have had so far :)

Orange-red in colour with a pinkish coloured head. Aroma was extremely sweet, lots of sugar and strawberries. Flavour was all sugar coated strawberries, wheaty, very cloying. Each sip was harder to swallow then the previous. I don’t understand why this brewery produces so many nearly undrinkable beers.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 I’m writing an article on fruit beers for a local food & drink website, so I gave this another shot to see if it’s as bad as I thought the first time around. It still looks as ugly as hell - murky reddish-brown with a wisp of a head. Aroma of strawberry jam - not just any jam, but the sickly sweet freezer jam that is common on the east coast of Canada where my family is from. Flavour is quite sweet and candyish with a hint of tartness in the finish. It’s not quite as cloying as my original rating suggested - it’s still too sweet for my personal taste, but I don’t hate it quite as much the second time around. (original numbers - 3/2/2/2/4/1.3)

This is a bit of an alcopop, but I found it somewhat enjoyable nonetheless. Taste is very strong, but genuine strawberry with a nice tartness at the end to counter the sweetness. That being said this is little more than a cooler with a beer base.

Aroma of organic strawberries that were a bit spoiled, earthy, sweet .Pour big head, cloudy truskawkowy kompot (strawberry juice) .Highly carbonated, bitter strawberry flavour does not go well with alcohol. It does feel wrong. Tart, fruity beer, but not refreshing at all.

Hazy dark rhubarb red color with bubbling white head. A soft fresh strawberry presence emanates from the glass - quite sweet smelling, but not really getting too candyish, although if your nose is in their long enough it can get a bit perfumy. The body is candyish and too sweet. A spritzyness encompasses the mouth and carries with it a mild tartness that somewhat masks the initial sweetness thankfully. A bit more of a wheat presence in the body would do this beer well. Overall a bit sweet, but fresh tasting and straightforward.

(250ml bottle) Pours a thin, pink head and a reddish-orange body. Nose of strawberry and apples. Sweet strawberry syrup mingles with the likes of fizzy soda water. Can this even be considered beer?

Not bad. Great strawberry aroma, poured a syrupy brown. Taste is not a great balance between artificial flavour and malt. No bitterness to speak of. Refreshing taste on my deck in the sun, but not great.
