Rated as "Capitol City Belgian Fruit" from the Downtown location, July 2006. Soft red grapefruit colored cloudy appearance. Some sour cream and raspberries in the nose, moderately lactic aroma. Sour citrus up front, low carbonation, mildly tart, like unripened, greenish strawberries. I don’t really get any of the Belgian/wit/hefe qualities in this beer. It’s ok, but nothing great.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2006 Iím going to assume for the time being that this is the "Belgian Fruit" beer at the Downtown location during the RBSG DC Pub Crawl. aracauna has rated it and I know that there was no other similar beer at either location, so.... Draft with a huge fruity nose. Cherries, plum and berries with yeast notes in the nose. Big fruit flavors and yeast with cherry being dominant and berries coming through as well. Light bodied and smooth. FInishes sweet and fruity with light yeast notes.

A heavily hazed amber with a decidedly pink influence. The head is a bit on the sticky side. The aroma makes the fruit of choice obvious. There may be a bit of belgian yeasty spice underneath, but I canít tell with the fruit up front. Lightly sweet, a little fizzy. Good fruit, a touch of tartness. Not a whole lot other than the fruit though.

(Capitol Hill) Off-white head tinged with pink atop an opaque dark pink grapefruit body. Aroma is mild, sour cherry. Taste is medium sweet, sour cherry, Belgian yeast. Light body with decent crispness, easy drinking.
