Introducing new Smashing Berry Ale! It’s rich and complex, with an assertive, satisfying berry character - more than most fruit beers.

Bottle. Pours a very clear, pale yellow with sudsy white head. Looks very similar to hard cider. Aroma was nice and fruity, kind of like Kool-Aid or Jello smells. Flavor was tons of berry and bubblegum and not much else. Wasn’t impressed. Light and thin body, heavily carbed, super sweet finish.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle, 22oz. A hazy, pale orange-golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is rather berry-ish, raspberry mostly, with some orange and a touch. A faint ale-ish touch in the back, both in the aroma and the flavor. It’s rather thin on the palate, with a bit low carbonation I think. Dry. Raspberry, orange notes and a touch of citrus zest in the flavor. Low on bitterness. Sort of like drinking a sodapop this one. Qutie decent. 150618

Bottle 650ml @ Hotel room, Comfort Inn Downtown, Washington, DC
Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, hint of citrus, raspberry, cherry and blueberries. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long berry finish. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is fizzy.

Draft pour at the source. Pours a hazy gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is nice raspberry. Smells a little tart, but the taste is more sweet than anything. Lighter body and medium carbonation. Not bad.

phaleslu (9376) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Appears to be fresh, so I think this can be un-retired. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a big, frothy, rocky white head that leaves just a wee bit of lacing. Aroma of strawberry jam, fresh raspberries, and pale and sweet malts. The flavor doesn’t bring as much fresh fruit, and comes across more as strawberry candy and raspberries, along with pale and sweet malts, and Lipton tea with lemon, like the kind that comes pre-made in a can. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Not bad, but definitely a little bit off.

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2011
Old rating. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Nose is straight up raspberry and blackberry with a hint of wheat. Flavor is also malty with lots of raspberry and blackberry. Not bad for the style, but kinda tastes artificial.

In short: A very gross sweet fruity mess.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed about one year after purchase
The look: Very dark ruby (near black) topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose is very much like the dark bubblegum that kids like so much (and me too on occasion). Taste is extra-sweet "grapes" bubble gum (purple bubble gum) and concentrated mix-fruits juice (before adding three cans of water). Completely gross and undrinkable. I didn’t expect much but I love Hoppin Frog so I thought I’d give this one a try. This beer sucks more ass than a pervert with an anus-fetish.

7/23/10. Bomber shared by darn1207. This smells like generic raspberry/grape bubblegum BS, meh. Huge sweet berry flavor, super sweet raspberry flavor, but again with huge fake bubblegum flavor. Meh.
