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!

Bottle from state line liquors - pours hazy rose with no head. Aroma is big strawberry with some mineral water for fizz. Taste is sweet with a fizzy watery palate. No real influence from the Belgian white that’s it’s base. I didn’t have high expectations for this one, and they were almost met. Fruity alco-pop, sure, but not a beer to be taken seriously.

Dull, dark rose red colour; Slight head and minimal froth which faded in less than 1 minute; Lacing is thin but stick to glass; Mid to light body; Aroma is grassy, strawberry juice, perfume, and cane sugar; Taste is light fruit juice, mild malty taste, slight sweetness with hint of plum and cherry; Watery palate with slight sugary feel. No hop taste (not an ingredient). Dry after taste.

Comments: I was quite excited when I bought it as it stated strawberry juice - not fruit, not flavouring - as main ingredient, at least they are up front and honest about it. The result was a let down though, as I expected some classy palates in the forms of Lindemans Apple or Peaches. This one’s wine taste felt short of that level, and it is the watery feel, rather than sweetness (which is slight by the way) that stops me from future purchase.

Theydon_Bois (6994) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Tap at the Rose and Thistle, Frimley Green - 05/01/13. Hazed crimson, almost akin to a watered down bloody mary, with a thin off pink head that soon clears to the edge. Nose is strawberry slush puppy, berry fruit, sugars. Taste is a sweet strawberry sugar rush. Medium body with a little spritz in the carbonation, sweet finish. Meh - way too sweet. Had this once maybe 7 or 8 years ago and the distant memory from then told me I wouldn’t look forward to rating it. Doesn’t even compete with your average Bulgarian low ABV radler !

Sure it’s strawberry, sure it’s girly, sure sure sure... It’s also a belgian white and very refreshing. Does not seem like the juice is from concentrate. I’d take this over a caesar or a mimosa anyday!

floydian1 (826) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 4, 2012
250ml bottle into champagne glass. A hazy pinkish-red beer beneath an ample pink-white head that laces scantily. Aroma is dominated by sugary strawberry bubblegum. Flavour is similar being reminiscent of strawberry ice-cream but without the richness. Lightish body with a bubbly mouthfeel. Lacks the sour lambic elements of the best fruit beer beers but I frankly wasn’t expecting much.

Studentofbrrs (90) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2012
Has a very powerful strawberry aroma. It is a hazy and pale amber color, that produces minimal head. It tastes like a strawberry fruit juice heavy in sweetness, simply delicious. (could be considered too much like a fruit juice instead of a beer, definite downside) It has light body with soft carbonation with a lingering sweet finish. This beer is just plain delicious!

olliejobbins (699) - Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2012
250ml bottle. Pours a murky pinky red - doesn’t look very appealing. Tastes of strawberries (no surprise...) with a slight hoppy after taste. Not sure i’d describe it as a beer as such but tasted different!

SarkyNorthener (1414) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy pink beer. Aroma is the same as my daughters strawberry fromage frais yoghurt in her school lunch box. taste is very sweet strawberrys. I like fruit beers occasionally. have had better and worse than this. Could do with a little more complexity in this very simple one dimensional fruit beer.

Pas très bonne pour un kriek, un peu creux et artificielle. Je ne me trouve pas vraiment les fraises.

LBarouf (112) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
Very cloudy neon pink beer with a thin white head. Very strong strawberry and light spice aroma. Flavour is almost all strawberry with a hint of coriander. Very sweet finish. I wouldn’t say that this is bad, but the sweetness really puts you off after half a pint.
