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. Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2011
Sample @ Brewpub, Capitol HillTheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Pours dark amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, wheat, caramel and cherry. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2006 I’m 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. radagast83 (8072) - Alexandria, 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. aracauna (3606) - Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2006
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 can’t 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.

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.

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. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - APR 27, 2006
(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. hopscotch (11113) - 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 (37661) - 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.
