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: 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)

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2005 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. I couldn’t finish it.

piscator34 (2323) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 24, 2004
Hazy pale red in colour with a powerful nose of strawberry. Not much wheat beer quality to this one (no yeasty or wheaty flavors), just overpowering sweet strawberry cand flavorsy. Not completely offensive, but not really "beer like" enough for me.

Bottle. A redish beer with a pink head. The aroma and taste is of Strawberries and is sweet. Medium body with a soda pop like finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Slightly hazy reddish with a small, pink head. Sweet and very artificial strawberry aroma. Thin and extremely sweet with very distinct strawberry notes - hard to believe they should be natural. Very sticky finish. 170507

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 17, 2008
250ml bottle. Pours a murky pinkish red with a white head. The aroma is pure sickly strawberry. Smooth at first and then fizzy/tingly on the tongue. Starts with an intense strawberry flavour and then a wheat note comes through. The flavours feel rather artificial and overall this is pretty poor. Oh well, I can tick off ’fruit beer’ on the style list now.

Strykzone (6636) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Looks like unfiltered baby food. Aroma is sweet and artificial apples, cranberry, and strawberry. Flavor is mostly strawberry and is very sweet. Fizzy feel. Bartles and Jaymes would be proud of this one. Overpriced.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Pours a pinkish red color with a small foamy light pink head. Aroma is strawberry candy, smells like GNC strawberry protein hahaha. Initial taste is like a rocking boat, side to side strawberry candy then weird funky sweetness. Mid palate to finish fades very quickly with light berries on the finish and very dry. Flavor is one dimensional and clawing sweet. Below average palate duration. Average head retention. Body is light.

Bottle. This has an off strawberry flavour and an almost saccrine sweetness.

Pink color, frothy head that dissipated quickly and left no lace. Sweet strawberries dominate, and leave an unpleasant taste in the finish.
