UPDATED: MAR 13, 2016 As a strawberry drink and dessert beer - the best for me. Not subject for taste evalating as a beer, but of course much better than juices of the same taste. Meanwhile has witbier cloudiness (and nice strawberry red color), nice white foam, leaving the rings on the glass.

Enjoyed on 10/18/2011

Had on tap at Delerium Cafe in Brussels.

I should start by warning that I am not a fan of fruit beers - they are generally too sweet or sour for my palate and I dont enjoy them. This Floris Strawberry, however, might be the best of the sweet fruit beers Ive ever had (ignoring the ones like Cantillon that are actually well balanced).

Poured ruby red into a tall pilsner with minimal head. Nose was absolutely blasted with strawberries. Like walking in a field of fruit in spring.

Excellent mix of sweetness and berry tart on the tongue. Supper bubbly, like champagne. The CO2 acidity nicely balances the strawberry sweetness. Very crisp! Perhaps some hint of other berries, possibly black raspberry. Little bit of Rhubarb-like tartness at the end. Just a touch of alcohol lets you know that it is actually a beer.

A unique beer, I drink it on special occasions (or whenever Im at a Belgin Beer cafe) love the taste, easy to drink.

tima fruit beer de morango. Perfeita harmonia entre sabor e aroma. Podia beber somente isto pelo resto da vida.

Draft at Euston Tap. Pours a dark, opaque purple-red with a strong, red head. Potent strawberry nose. Medium to high sweetness but not overdone, with some nice tart and sour notes and light bitterness towards the end. Light to medium in body with fine, massaging carbonation. Finishes sweet, with more strawberry and light tartness. Very, very good.

Een van de lekkerste aardbeienbieren dat ik ooit al gedronken heb. Echt een aanrader

For my money, this is the best of Huyghes fruit beer range. Its a beer for the right occasion (you dont say to yourself, "I feel like a beer - hey, heres a strawberry wheat beer!") Its great with a bitter chocolate tart. I served this with that at the end of a beer dinner and the guests loved it. Probably the most popular combination of the entire dinner. I find it too sweet to drink on its own but my girlfriend loves it. It pours a peachy-pink colour with a big fizzy head that laces well. The nose screams strawberries but there are also banana notes and a hint of sherbet. Its a refreshing summer drink, light in body and zesty. Nice bitter-sweet balance. Sweet and tangy. (Bottle)

Strawberry bubblegum aroma. Cloudy reddish brown colour with excellent head. Nice fresh strawberry flavour with some apple hints? Light body with low carbonation.

From notes. Enjoyed on draft at Delirium Caf on November 10 with Kathleen. The pour is a lighter golden red color with a thicker light pink head that fades quickly, leaving a couple spots of good lace. The aroma is pretty good. There is a lot of jammy strawberry right up front. Its a little sweet, but carries a nice tartness to it as well. There is a decent wheatiness that underlies the fruit, but it balanced well for something that should be light and crisp. The flavor is much of the same. Big jammy fruitiness and a nice tart wheat aspect that keeps it light. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly sweet and fruity strawberry on the finish. The wheat pokes through on the end, but its nicely balanced.
