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!

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Enjoyed from a 11.2 oz bottle in a wine glass. The beer pours a faint ruby/light copper color, with a low white head. The nose shows jammy notes of strawberry, reminiscent of strawberry jelly. Very sweet and seemingly artificial, but not entirely unpleasant. The palate again shows a jammy sweetness up front, strawberries in the mid-palate, and additional sugary sweetness in the finish. Traditional beer flavors, not to mention notes of the base Witbier, do not come through in any detectable manner. Carbonation is nicely calibrated, and serves to lift the flavors from the palate, to some extent. The finish leaves a lingering note of strawberry jam. Overall, a nice dessert beer, but one that would be tiresome to drink in any quantity.

Excellent desert! Very good strawberry aroma. Dirty pink hazy with small light pink head. Nice strawberry taste - what else should I expect from dessert?

Smells like a lemonade. Tastes and looks the same. Red colored. No lacing sweet and jamy.

Emeister84 (1607) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Big fat strawberry aroma. Hazy and very red with a fairly lasting off-white head. Sweet and very fruity, redolent of those little strawberry candies. Medium bodied.

From tap. Hazy almost red color with pink head. Sweet strawberry aroma. Sweet taste like aroma. Light almost oily body with soft carbonation.

Strawberries I love. Beer I love ever more. Make fine use of those loves this beer does not. Yes, it is pretty and yes, it smells like ripe and beguiling berries. When glass comes to mouth and beer to lips, I realized I have just imbibed a child’s soft drink that has been laced with alcohol. Nothing about this beverage feels like beer or even "Adult" for that matter. It is a highly carbonated, strawberry medicine/candy flavoured terror that makes me loathe to foray into further Fruit Beer territory. So in short, not awesome.

Marduk (4068) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 13, 2015
330ml bottle @Beerfox, Riga. Cloudy pink color. Medium size, white-pink head, stays. Strawberries, bubblegum, sweet aroma. Smells horrible. Tastes strawberries, jucy and is very sweet. Sweet and sticky. Ohh well.

Opaque pink to red pour, thin pink head. Offers strawberry in on the nose and int he taste. Many other better fruit beers.

overtheline (90) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 24, 2015
330ml bottle pours cloudy pink with a white pink fast dissipating head. Aroma is sweet strawberry (shock) but there is a bit of Belgian yeast on the nose. Taste is pretty good, true strawberry, very sweet. Short sweet finish.

YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
Crimson red with a meager white head. Strawberry juice fragrance is overpowering. Although sweet juice is overly vigorous in taste as well, some malty balance is present to ensure that the beer isn’t utterly revolting. Worthy of a single sample, but I certainly wouldn’t seek another.

Lovely strawberry aroma, taste of sweet strawberries. Very enjoyable beer, would definitely buy again.
