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.

Cloudy Pale orange.Some froth,leaves a little frothy decending lace. Aroma is strange/unique. Its got a fruitlike aroma but the apricot is kind of mutated with some dyacytal/woodines/butterscotch/tartness.Maybe even some leather. Some mineral/light grassyness even. Taste is good with a fruit/cider like quality. Tart and sweet. Some butterynotes,apricot with woody dry -butterscotch,apple cider. Pretty tastey.

harrisoni (13779) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle from Trafalager Wines, Brighton. Clear gold with lasting white head. Apricot jam on aroma. Yes quite sweet but not overly cloying. Even a touch of sourness on the finish. It’s lovely. Apricot jam beer. Lovely.

This is nicer than I hoped. Some funk and sourness to it with lots of apricot. I think more beer-wise than some are giving credit, though I don’t think credit is the right word. What I mean is, that they’re wrong. This is reasonably beery.

Leighton (11122) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear gold with a small, fading white foam head. Nose has some rotting fruits, vague sugary apricots. Medium to big sweet flavor, some faintly tangy apricot. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet and lightly tangy finish, sugry apricot. It’s a touch artificial and syrupy, but the tartness makes it alright.

Pale hazy yellow with some head and lacing. Very sweet smell with wheat and apricot. Very sweet taste of wheat and apricot. Thin mouthfeel. Much too sweet for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brenn79 (1526) - Idaho, USA - JAN 4, 2013
18.7 oz. bottle- Pours a muddy hazy orange with a very thin tan head that reduces immediately to bug bubbles on the rim. The aroma is apricots actually, tart, very fruity, appealing. The taste is the same, tart apricots, they really resonate, no complex flavors, it actually tastes like apricot juice with some carbonation. Body is medium to almost thin, carbonation is medium. Overall this is really good, would be a great summer drink, I almost feel like it should have ice cubes in it, it doesn’t have much of a beer flavor.

rlgk (10851) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle at a Samuel Smith-pub quite close to Charing Cross. Hazy apricot color, with a very nice lasting offwhite head. Apricot aroma, orange, peach, malty, biscuits, rather on the sweet side. Apricot flavor, sweet, oranges, citrus notes, sugary, banana notes, pine apples. Rather sweet fruity, but somehow it gets away with it.
