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!

Theydon_Bois (11410) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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 !

thewolf (11336) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 13, 2007
Tap. (as 4,2 % vol). Pours a deep muddy dark red. Has a thin white film head. Aroma has loads of strawberries and a general fruity sweetness. Taste maintains a light sourness, granting ’access’ to the sweet end of strawberry. Mouthfeel has loads of small bubbles and quite a full feel.

imdownthepub (11086) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled at Wetherspoons world of beer promo. Cloudy pink with pink head. What on earth is happening here? Fruity sweet concoction that if I didn’t have the bottle in my hands I would not have said was beer. Its a sweet sticky cheap fruit juice that is placed in probably a cheap Belgian Witt. Disgusting, but gets the od mark for novelty and aroma.

Pinball (11049) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2010
muddy red/brown, smooth white head. strong strawberry aroma, some citrus and tartness. sort of reminds me of strawberry jam. flavor is strawberry, faint tartness, faint sort of hoppy bitterness, never gets too sweet or cloying. nice one.

Lubiere (10721) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
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???

Ratman197 (10640) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Bottle poured a clear pale red with a small lingering pink head. Aromas of strawberry and light cookie. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of strawberry, light cookie and a hint of honey with a crisp lingering strawberry finish. Much better than I expected, not excessively sweet.

Bottle at home. Pours clear strawberry red with a small, bubbly off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy strawberries with light cracker malt. Flavor is heavy strawberries with supporting malt and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.
