Fruli is smooth, well rounded and bursting with natural flavour. It’s sweeter than ordinary beers with a hint of bitterness and a little citrus zest that balances out the palate and has been likened to a smoothie with bite with a touch of yoghurt or ice cream. Because real strawberry juice is used instead of extracts, this provides the crucial taste difference and texture and makes Fruli a smooth drinking beer with mass channel appeal.

Fruli is a unique blend of white beer and strawberry juice. The juice complements the zestiness of the wheat beer and the result is a balanced and refreshing beer that is packed with strawberry fruit flavour.
During the brewing process, and in accordance with all Belgian Witbiers, crushed coriander and dried orange peels are added. Then the first fermentation takes place, and once completed, the beer is transferred into tanks where the strawberry juice is added for a second fermentation of 10 days. The temperature is then reduced for maturation for a further 10 days. The beer is then filtered, and bottled.
