One of four top-fermented fruit beers in this series, a cranberry beer with a pale lilac head over a milky cloudy, purple red beer dominated by sweet cranberry jam and -juice, honeyishly sweet, thinnish mouthfeel, bit creamy finish, fortunately not too cloying. Less off-putting and somewhat less artificial than most of their Floris fruit beers, but still not my taste at all.

On tap at Rutland and Derby, Leicester. This is a historical rating BTW - hahaha. But true. This was like thick, tart fruit smoothie - nothing less. Hoorah full set of Frulis for me, as wife sits here furiously swigging the strawberry version. Melted ice lolly, yeah?

Warning! Early amateur rating! Sweet honeyish beer, Fruity but not obviously cranberry. Nice.

Bottle from Phil L at, good work fella. The strawberry on tap is lovely, in bottles it’s poor. Not had this on tap but first impressions is it’s tastier than the bottled strawberry badger. Tastes a bit less chemical. Sweet and pleasant enough but needs more.

Bottle from Phil_l, via Beer Merchants. Thanks Phil! Pours sort of a milky pink, the dubious color of rouge old ladies wear when they are fading a little bit mentally and thinking they are 15 again. Seriously the most unclear beer I’ve ever poured out of a bottle. More milkshake than beer. Some pinkish head floats above the murk. Tinned fruit juice aroma, mostly cranberry but some dull orange and a dash of tomato. Flavor is initially a pleasant sharp fruitiness, but then transitions to a cheap sherry sweetness and old butter. Still kind of drinkable in an odd way, but very flawed.

Bottle, 250ml. A densely cloudy pink colour with fruit pulp and almost no head. Aroma of slightly sour cranberry. A cranberry flavour with some yeast and wheat notes. A little sweetness and a sour finish. Quite drinkable.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2008
Rather strange hazy red coloured beer with very light carbonation and a small white head. Fruity, little sweet aroma with a medium palate. Finish is again fruity, cherry and cranberry with a sweeter/ little sour touched ending. Medium one.

Bottled from BEERmerchants, Kent. Muddy purple with no head. Not being a fruit beer lover I was ready to pan this, but no, its pretty reasonable. Initially sweet, but then a sourish cranberry, lambic type flavour. I was close to enjoying it, this cannot be right. Many thanks to Phil and the folks at BEERmerchants.
