Fruili Strawberry Belgian Beer
It pours the colour of a strawberry smoothie with a thin off-pink head.
The nose reminds me of a 'strawberry fool' - an effortless, incredibly delicious artery clogging desert which contains fresh strawberries, sugar and cream, whipped until mousse-like. When the fruit nose settles, the white beer element of the beer is evident also.
The palate is delicately carbonated, fresh strawberry with a nice lemon twist. Unless I was writing this blog I'd have forgotten it was a beer though. The alcohol is completely masked by the very strong strawberry flavour. It's a visiting beer - 4.1%, take 2 to a party when the cars outside.
Available currently in Deveney's of Dundrum.
