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

Draft. Very light gold color. Loads of raspberry to the nose and tongue. Mouth is a little effervescent. A bit fake tasting but still OK.

Poured a hazy straw yellow color with a big white head. Aroma is of berry syrup. Flavor is much the same. way too sweet and artificial tasting. Blah!

22oz bottle. Small white head atop hazy apple juice body. Aroma is moderately sweet, strawberry/blueberry, light raspberry. Taste is moderately sweet, strawberry, some blueberry, raspberry. Light-medium body. Quite fruity with little else.

Had this brew at G.A.B.F. 08’. Aroma is a strong berry scent. Color is a light yellow with fair carbonation and an average head. Wow its like drinking fruit punch Kool-Aid. Its light and refreshing but not a brew I would want to drink.

22 oz. bottle shared by shigadeyo. Pours quite a bit like dirty water - murky light brown pink with essentially no head. The aroma is a huge sweet berry sensation much like that found in koolaid or wine coolers (sorry, I’m having flashbacks to the late 80’s early 90’s). The flavor is a more watered down version of the aroma. Moderately sweet berry and pale malts. The flavor seems to be artificial. A dissapointing brew from Hoppin Frog.

Pours straw/gold with a white head. Smells of syrup (sugar, berries). Tastes of berry juice and some sweet malt.

jsquire (3638) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Pale golden color with a thin fizzy white head. Nose of berry cool aid. Lots of raspberry syrup flavor. Really sweet with a taste that reminds me of the blue part of those bomb pops I used to eat as a kid. Not an offensive fruit beer, but not a great use of fruit in beer either.

7/26/08: Bottle.
Sickening sweet berry aroma (powdered drink mix and sugar). Pale salmon colored body. Flavors of berry, cantaloupe and wheat.

Tmoney99 (11463) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2008
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured clear reddish amber color with an average fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate berry tart citrus aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet berry flavor with medium to heavy sweet finish of short duration. This beer did not meet my expectations.
