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!

CapFlu (4364) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2004
(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?

DuffMan (6163) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2006
Densely cloudy, dirty pink. Fizzy effervescent head, gone before you know it. Smells like a strawberry cooler, tastes like a strawberry cooler-- sickly sweet. Not one I would come back to.

TheJester (1727) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2007
250 mL bottle. Translucent brownish red with a film of head. Smells like sweet strawberry juice. Tastes like sweet, heavily carbonated strawberry syrup that someone has spilled a little beer into as a joke. I’m not big on fruit beers in the first place, but this one is way too strong and sweet. I can see how some may find it a decent summer drink, though.

KingofCastle (202) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2007
bottle: Well, i think you either like fruit beers or you don’t. Make that, you either love strawberry beer or you hate it. Thin to no head, dark cloudy colour . . . and really sweet. My wife almost likes this & she hates beer - is this a good sign? My beef with this beer is that it doesn’t feel or taste like a beer, but more like a cooler. Do yourself a favour & grab an amazingly flavoured belgian white (Blue Moon, Hoegarden), german wheat (Erdinger), belgian ale (Leffe Blonde), an abbey dubbel (Chimary Red) or even a hgh quality ESB (Hobgoblin), where you can taste fruit but still feel like you are drinking a beer. Now those beers are an amazing combo of fruit flavours & matls. This just tastes like strawberry juice/smoothie mixed with cheap lager, brutal.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, pink, mostly diminishing. Body is cloudy medium reddish-pink. Aroma is notes of artificial berries/syrup/soda (strawberry, raspberry, candy). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Soda pop, nothing more.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Got this randomly one day at Rozi’s- not expecting much, and surprise! it’s in the 17th percentile. Aroma is that of strawberry jam and a little bit acidic. Flavor is really sweet, just like juice. There is almost no malt, hops or anything other than fruit noticeable. Yeah, I guess there is some malt in there? maybe? Just too fruity.

travita (3704) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Very artificial weak beer. Like bad strawberry jelly. Very fake like. Clear sort of red color. Soda like. Thin head. Not much taste.

On tap at Capones (Norristown). I only tried this because my buddy was paying for it. I’m not a fan of sweet beers so this review is going to be biased. Pours red orange with a small head and long thing lacing. Has a strong strawberry aroma with some faint hops and citrus. The taste is VERY sweet - too sweet for my taste. I expected it to be more tart but its very sweet and the taste lingers. There is very little tartness to balance the massive overload of sweet. Initially, I thought it was very close to the taste of strawberry sundae topping but as a dessert drink it may work. What I dont like is that it lingers on the palate for a long time because of the syrup like mouth feel. Its not horrible or disgusting by any stretch; however, it is more suited to people who like wine coolers than complex ales.

Was at least expecting this to be ok after reading the reviews. Shocking alco-pop. Super sweet, fake strawberry taste to it like lolli pops in a blender.

Pours a slight pink, fizzy gay color. Aroma is pretty much strawberry jam. Flavor is like watered down strawberry soda. Very fizzy. Pretty girly. No actual beer/malt/hops taste. Keep this away from my fridge, except for when the teenage girls come over.
