Has anyone tried the Floris range of fruit beers?
The most intense passion fruit I've ever tasted in a beer - Does anyone know where it can be bought in Brisbane?

Yech.

The alcopops of the Belgian beer world. I've had the fraises (strawberry) reminded me of sugar water. <_<

Sort of wonder if they're marketed in Belgium to lure the teenyboppers. :unsure:

Ross, they turn up occasionally down here. I reckon if you hunt around some of the better bottlos you'll turn some up. They're usually in pretty shabby nick though. OTOH Maybe that's as good as they get. :unsure: Never bothered trying them in Belgium.

Ross, the only place I know you can get them at is the Belgium Beer Cafe. I have never seen them in a retail shop.

I'm with warrenlw63 - they taste (to me) like someone has added a fruit cordial to a fairly ordinary ale.

My favourite beer (of this style) would have to be the Liefmans Frambozen - a beautiful beer by any account. Their Ale; Liefmans Goudenband is exceptional ale too.

Yep,

If I were going to consume any of them (not a real huge fan of fruit beers really). Rose de Gambrinus is a mighty nice, complex drop a blend of Kreik and Framboise. :super:

Either that or head down the Flanders Brown path (better IMO) and try a Liefmans Kriek or Frambozenbier. :rolleyes: Now weez gettin there. :beerbang:

As tart as a Broadmeadows slapper. :chug:

Sorry Goat. I should have read more thoroughly I didn't realize you'd already endorsed the Liefman's Frambozen. You're right top drop and carbonated to buggery. :super: :blink:

I'll have to keep my eyes open for the Liefmans - The Floris was for my daughter, who's just turned 18 & reckons beer is fairly ordinary - Thought it would be just about right for her pallette ;) ...

C'mon Ross admit it mate.

The banana beer, fruity Belgian alcopops. Wanting to walk off into the sunset with Darren. You're becoming a funny/peculiar, mid-life "artistic" brewer. :p :lol:

If you can't find the Floris sometimes the De Troch lines of Chapeau beers have made the odd cameo in good bottlos. They're similar to the Floris but probably a little better IMO. You can even get banana or blackcurrant among others. Yuck! Ribena Lambic. :huh: :beerbang:

edit: spelling

Yeah - next thing you know he'll be brewing something like a sub-tropical flower petal wit. :p

Ross, for your daughter, she might like the Bellevue Kriek. It is sweet, a little tart, fruity and spritzy. The Grape usually sells it.

Cheers - Snow

Bugger, I was really hoping someone tracked this down in Brisbane.

One of my mates going to Moreton for Easter isn't man enough to drink XXXX - and I haven't brewed for a while... :unsure: - and know that the girly man likes his Florisgaarden. There are a few bottles of Belle Vue there, and Weihenstephaner... but he insists.

So still nowhere? Or a similar bier, that's at least available?

try your daughter out on Leffe Blond - fairly sweet and fragrant.
