COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Handcrafted at Melbourn Bros’ tiny brewery set in a time warp in Stamford using the old manually operated brewing equipment. finest organically grown barley and wheat are used to create a complex ale which having undergone primary and secondary fermentation with different yeasts and extended maturation, is taken to Samuel Smith’s small, independent British brewery at Tadcaster. There it is blended with pure organic apricot fruit juice and a previously cellared organic brew - creating an unparalleled fruit ale. The smooth distinctive character of the matured ale serves as the perfect counterpoint to the pure organic fruit juice.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle at Sås & Krås. The apricot is very there, so is a botch of sweetness, nor really my cup of tea.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Bottled 33cl. Rating number 2800. A very approachable beer for almost anyone I would imagine. Sweet but not artificial. Good in itself but I can’t seem to find the right setting to drink a beer which is that filling at 5.1 ABV.

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle 355 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Muddy golden blonde with a nervous crackling and a compact white head. Soft fruity aromas of apricot, jam, lemon, wood. The taste is very fresh, sweet and fruity with a present acidulity, nice balance sugar-acidity. Bitterness of almond-kernel, hints of vanilla, wheat and fruity Lambic.

BeerBeforeH20 (129) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Hazy golden pour with a thin but hearty head. Aroma is a great blend of sweet but slightly tart apricot, really pleasing. Taste is sweet without overdoing it on the apricot, with a nice malt balance. Mouthfeel is very smooth and exceedingly drinkable. This is great stuff, will go back for more soon.

pictoman (736) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Poured from 550mL bottle. Mostly clear, light golden yellow with white head. Aroma of apricot and subtle yeast. Mild sweet apricot taste, not overbearing. Not far behind the Raspberry fruit beer from Sam Smith.

Gerbeer (2253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
550 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with moderate head that settles quickly. Aromas of fresh apricots and a bit of fuzzy peach. Flavors of fresh nectarine with only a note of the beer from the body and a bit of toasted malts. Well carbonated. An extremely good alcoholic fruit drink. Beer? I don’t know ,but well done.

Lagerboy (1504) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2014
550 ml bottle. Mostly clear yellow orange, smaller foamy white fading head. Tantalizing apricot aroma. Sweet apricot juice taste and not much else. Softer than average carbonation, lighter bodied, no discernible malt or hop presence. Tart finish. Good for what it is. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Pours an orange colour with little head. Sweet smell of apricots. Tastes sweetish,apricots but never too mellow or overdone...all in all very balanced as a dessert beer.
