New Belgium Fruit Smash Berry Blast

What the brewers say

“A seltzer that’s grown a pair ... of berries. It will blast your tastebuds with real raspberry juice.”

What our panel thought

“The aroma, reminiscent of a bag of Gushers, saves this one. The sip is a letdown. Cherry notes hide under a higher level of carbonation. Feels a bit rough. Abrupt carbonated-water finish forgot to include the fruit.”

What our editors thought

“Strawberry lemonade in the nose, sweet and inviting. Light in the sip with a semisweet approach that’s more lean and crisp with tight berry notes. The fruit tastes real, and engaging, despite the lightness.”
