A liberal sample given to the wife at THall on tap. A sharp hard tart aroma of fruit. A flovor of tart furit cherries mostly I think. A tad of bitter fruit as well. Smooth carbonation and solid mouthfeel. A very good beer overall.

Capa (2625) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2007 Pours a deep ruby red with a medium, light tan head. Very nice looking beer. Aroma of tart cherries, vinegar, sour, and mroe fruit. Flavor is much less sour. Sweet instead of sour, fruit, some cherry. Finishes sweet with a light touch of tart cherry (finally!). Clean, crisp body. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 25cL bottle. Pours dark with a tan color head. Definite hints of red wine present, but does not detract from the taste. Interesting and likeable bier.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a red glow. Flavor and aroma of cherries and red vinegar. Nice sweetness up front followed by a mellow sourness. High carbonation works well with nicely balanced beer. Not my favorite style of beer, but I enjoyed sipping this beer.

505 (271) - Echo Park, California, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Aroma not terribly strong, of woody vinegar and cherries. Pours dark brown with a small lasting head. Hits sweet, then tart and cherry, then has a bitter and dry finish. Pretty good overall, but not as out there as I like in my FS.
