COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smashed Blueberry is the newest beer in Shipyard Brewing Company’s Pugsley’s Signature Series line. This beer is a hybrid between a Porter and a Scotch Ale and has a rich mouth feel and a body of complex intensity. Upfront, there are distinct flavors of coffee and chocolate beautifully accentuated by the aroma of fresh blueberries. The finish features a delicate balance of sweet fruit and dry hops. This beer pairs well with glazed duck, ribs, barbeque, chocolate, and blueberry deserts. To fully experience all the flavors, Smashed Blueberry is best drunk at 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

Hermod (4043) - Vantaa, - DEC 2, 2012
65cl bottle @ Pikkulintu. Dark brown color with a beige head. Strong blueberry aroma, quark/ yoghurt like dessert. Flavor is blueberry juice, grain, chocolaty notes. Sweet chocolate continues in the finish as well. Hides alcohol well. Quite nice really.

Very dark brown color, average sized brown head. Aroma of blueberry cake, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, yoghurt. Taste is very similar. Slightly tart. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. This is what fruit beers should be like.

ogivlado (6267) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 24, 2015
Bottled 650ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Almost black coloured, small to medium sized brown head, chocolate and blueberry in the nose. Roasted malt, light chocolate and intensive blueberry taste with also light chocolate and blueberry finish. Alcohol well hidden. Not so bad like Pumpkin but also not so good as I’ve expected.

HammerTroll (792) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 23, 2015
Hazy dark brown color, small tan head. Lots of blueberry, barrel wood and caramel in the aroma, some roastiness, malts and oak. Taste begins with caramel and something more like scotch ale, and ends with blueberry bomb, sweetness and hints of sourness. Long blueberry finish. Alcohol is nowhere to be found, fascinating. Medium body, soft to flat carbonation, creamy texture. This is something truly special. //pivoteka

DuffMan (7798) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle, shared with Parksy and phantomhennes. Dark brown, light brown head. Big blueberry aroma and flavour, fudgey and roasty, full bodied. This reminded me of Tres Blueberry, but the blueberry here was more intense and the overall profile sweeter. Still, pretty tasty stuff.

TheHopster (905) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2015
(bottle) Pours a deep brown complexion with tan head and some glass lacing. Aroma of blueberry, malt and hops. Flavor is cocoa, malt, blueberry fruit, bitter hops and alcohol. Interesting combination. Nice idea, would have appreciated even more blueberry flavor and less hops.

reebtogi (4741) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
650ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger and a half of creamy off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is blueberry and chocolate with citrus notes. Taste is a blueberry and chocolate malty sweetness with a light citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is an outstanding fruit beer with a nice balance of flavors and body. Very tasty and recommended.

gopherfan99 (875) - CROATIA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle; pours dark brown with a khaki head; aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, some coffee, and blueberries; taste is bittersweet with chocolate, blueberries, malt, and coffee; has dry bitter coffee finish with a hints of chocolate and blueberries; this seems more like a blueberry porter than a radler to me; very good beer nonetheless

Interesting brew , it has hints of porter, the obvious fruit influence, but quite a light body

Very smooth with a blueberry taste. A porter and IPA mix one of the best IPA I've had .very little bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
