Draft @ the Capital Hill location. Pours a reddish amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity wheaty cherry aroma. Fruity wheat malty cherry flavor. Has a fruity cherry finish.

3fourths (8103) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2006
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.

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.

mansquito (3447) - 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.
