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.

Bottle courtesy of Ken during some Settlers of Catan. Pours a beautiful deep peach nectar juice body with thin white bubbly lacing. Aroma is apricot and sugar. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of peach, apricot, fruit juice, sugar and light tin. If the light tin flavor was diminished a bit this would be incredible, but still serves as a sessionable fruit ale.

Pours completely opaque dark yellow. Aroma is strongly apricot. Taste is slight wheat, almost invisible under the syrupy, nectary, sugary apricot. Wonderful taste...just way too much of it.....

zacgillbanks (2557) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Golden coloured with a very strong aroma of apricots which follows though into the rich fruity apricot flavoured body. There’s a warming sweetness followed by a slight tart and biscuity finish.

Khaggerty118 (69) - Olney, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Pours an aesthetic apricot butterscotch. Lovely deep apricot caramel aroma. Extremely flavorful sweet apricot taste. You can tell it has apricot juice added and not just apricots added in fermentation. Too sweet for me to enjoy this. It is exactly what it says it is and does a good job at it, I just think the apricot is too overwhelming. It tastes more like a off-center apricot juice drink than beer.

degbert (1200) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy -- well -- apricot colored. (Duh, huh?) Head is high and white with large grains and lace. The nose is superlative -- avoiding the candied extremes that fruit beers are prone to. This just smells like apricot preserves, rich, floral, and sweet. Apricot is dominant on the front of the palate, but a malty and bitter midpalate finishes with more clean, vibrant fruit. Anyone who wants to make a fruit beer should drink this first.
