mansquito (3105) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2011
Downtown location 16oz ($3.50): I guess this is the right rating place: called Belgian Cherry when I was there. Anyway it poured a reddish color with no head. Aroma was of cherries and amber ale nonsense. Watery and mediocre. Kind of sweet. This is like a bad imitation of Belgian ale and it really doesn’t work. Imagine a really bad version of Rare Vos, with artificial cherry flavor. Yeah. grand.

I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Sampled on tap on 7/15/06 at the downtown location called "Belgian Fruit": Pours an amber copper with a thin covering of white head. Sweet, fresh, fruity raspberry and pale malty aroma. Body starts sweet and candy-like fruity with a light mouthfeel and some grainier muddled bitter hoppy finish. Starts promising but finishes more of a let down.

radagast83 (4126) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Draft at Shirlington. Hazy color. Aroma is fruity, and it does taste like cherry. Wasn’t my favorite of the place, but was decent enough.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Draft... Downtown D.C. location... Hazy, yellow ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Mild, fruity esters, subtle graham and fresh cherries in the nose. Lots of fresh cherries or fresh cherry puree in the flavor. No wacky Belgian esters, spices or fruit peels. Hint of tanginess and dry, unmalted wheat. Light to medium-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, delicate cherry finish.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2006
[As 4 raters before me have, I’m going to rate the Belgian Fruit that I had at the Downtown location prior to the RBESG 2006 here] A reddish beer with no head. The aroma is quite light with notes of strawberries. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of fruit, strawberries, and berries of the forrest. Forgettable.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Draft @ Capitol City DowntownCalled the Belgian Fruit beer. Dark amber, thin head, light lacing. Nose of starchy sour fruity, light belgian esters and some hint of malt. The flavor is similar, fairly brash and uninteresting, like a botched try at a kriek or framboise. Finishes tart, funky, thin and husky.

on tap at the brewpub. pours a light copper cloudy color. incredibly sweet flavor. seques into a fruity tartness. flavors of raspberry, cherry and plum. the body and finish are thin; residual aldehyde. the aroma is of berries. the beer has as thin white head. tangy entrance on tongue that tastes like raspberry jolly rancher.
