Bottle from Ashley. Light, weird pour with a big white head. Aroma is apricot and sweetness. Taste is kinda off, more apricot, and an unpleasant finish.

Cloudy gold - orange beer with a small white head. Palate is smooth. Intense tangy apricot underpinned by creamy malt. Finishes sweet and tangy. Great creamy fruit beer and one in the eye for beer snobs! Ha!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Kensington, London. Colour is almost clear golden amber, thin head head. Nose is very fragrant apricot, but there’s also some mango, like a mango lasso drink. Some lactic. It’s very sweet fresh apricots. Taste is sweet sugary apricot, almost like a fruit drink, but nicely balanced is a light to medium beer backbone and some light tartness to temper the sweetness. Crisp lagerish backbone.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 22oz bottle to flute. Pour is a very deep dull orange. Nose is of obvious apricot. Taste is very sweet, light body with a champagne-like carbonation to finish. Refreshing beer, very impressive what this brewery can do with fruit beers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yet another sweet and summer-satisfying fruit beer from Samuel Smith. Probably a little too sweet, but very refreshing during summer’s last stand. Difficult to dislike, but not what most would call excellent beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 21, 2013 - bottle, at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese. Murky orange-gold with a minimal white head. Aroma is pretty pungent - slightly unripe apricot and lemon, just a little grassiness to make it smell vaguely beer-like. Taste - pretty solid - ripe apricot and mild but present funk, not much alcohol - maybe a bit like a tart apricot and wine concoction, but actually pretty damned drinkable. Thick body, some acidity, high, light stinging carbonation and a quick sweet/tart fruity finish. I like this better than their others.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Orangey golden-yellow colour, white foam head that dissipates and aroma of sugary apricot & syrup. Taste is sweet fruity apricot with flowery hop and yeasty notes, some tartness and light bitterness. Light bodied, well carbonated, crisp dry sourish finish. Quite drinkable.
