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

Courtesy of Mreusch. Poured hazy yellow with a bubbly white head. Aroma of berries. Great smell. The flavor didn’t really hold up to expectations. Not as much berry as the nose.

22oz bottle acquired in trade with ogglethorp (thanks!). Poured a lighter yellow color with a large sized white head. Aromas of berry-liciousness and a little fruity. Tastes of the same with some wheaty/graininess. Berries definitely dominate. Sweet. Like drinking a sweet berry candy. You have to be in the mood for this one!

Bottle from nolankowal on 3/7/08. Lots of berry aroma. Somewhere between coolaid and fruit loops and cough syrup. Pretty nice. Medium body. Leans a bit sweet. Probably popular with the ladies..

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Bottle thanks to miketd: Pours a transparent golden with a thin ring of spotty white head. Nice aroma of fresh strawberries and blueberries. Body starts about average with some mild fructose sweetness and light grainy maltiness before a dull, candy-like finish. Needs more body and balance, but has some decent fruit character.

Lowe1983 (1377) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Pours a ligher amber color with a pink tone to it with a pink head. Aroma is strong of berries, mostly raspberry, and not much else. Berry flavor dominates but does have a slight backbone of some malts on the finish. It’s ok for a fruit beer.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Bottle: Pours a clear pale amber color with a pinkish white head. Aroma, raspberry and strawberry, some peach notes. Flavor, strawberry and raspberry, lots of sweet fruity notes, but it’s kinda thin.

Bottle. This beer was kind of a let down. Aroma was pretty berry overall but not much else really came through. Overall seemed more like a juice than anything else. Didnt taste bad at all but not what im looking for in a fruit beer.

b33r (699) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Draught at 69 Taps. Orange color with small white head and no lacing. Sweet berry flavor and aroma dominate, with little else going on. Still good but pretty ordinary.

Dogbrick (9174) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2007
On draught at 69 Taps in Akron. This beer is a mostly clear light reddish-brown color with a medium-thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Sweet berry and malt aroma. Medium-bodied with a tart fruit character balanced by sweet malt and grain flavors. The finish is raspberries and malt and lingers awhile. Overall a pretty good Fruit beer.

GABF 2007: Poured a clear dark brown color. Huge fruity raspberry aroma. It was candy like. Fruity raspberry flavor. Not as sweet as the aroma. Some malt. Dry finish with a medium body.
