This is great stuff. The small bottle and low alcohol content give it the air of something made for just-legal drinkers to try first. Girly? Maybe. But as a female fan of sweet fruity things, I love Fruli.
It smells and tastes like real strawberry, not fake Strawberry Shortcake / wine cooler smell, and it's not quite as sweet as you might expect. It comes across as strawberry juice with a bit of carbonation and a faint hoppy aftertaste. The colour is a golden strawberry red with a fine foamy head. If you don't even like beer you might like this, because it's more about the strawberry than the beer.
It's like bottled summer, so drink it in the winter if you forget what warm weather is like.

Had this beer on tap at the Conwy Castle Hotel in Wales, UK last week. It was listed as a "dessert beer" on the their menu along with the chocolate mousse, raspberry tart, etc. While I am not a fan of fruit / vegetable beers (and can understand why others have rated this beer so poorly), this beer quite simply blew me away. It was awesome! Even the two wine drinkers at the table loved it, one of whom is 79 years old! For me, the taste was what did it for me - like drinking a strawberry shortcake - it is just a perfect example of what this brewery must have intended. Reminded me of a New Glarus raspberry beer I tried about a year ago, only better. I will seek this out if I can find it in the States and drink it on special occasions for dessert.
