COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Handcrafted at Melbourn Brosí 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 Smithís 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.

GregClow (2949) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear & bright orange-gold body with a good sized white head. Aroma of apricot nectar and lightly toasted grain. Flavour is a great combo of a clean, simple golden ale and fresh apricot notes that start quite sweet, but develop a nice tartness in the finish, where a bit of Earl Grey tea comes through as well. Really nice stuff - one of the best non-lambic fruit beers Iíve had in quite some time, in fact.

A decent fruit beer. Since I donít care for apricot, I am rating this to my tastes not how good it is. Lovers of apricot would love this. Aroma was big, sweet and fruity. Apricot and sugar. Pour was a nice cloudy orange with a one finger white head. Taste was big sweet and fruity. Apricot and fruit cocktail with nice carbonation. The sweetness was a little too much and there was not anything to balance it out.

zacgillbanks (2888) - 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. Thereís a warming sweetness followed by a slight tart and biscuity finish.

drjay44 (2858) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2012
UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 550 ml. bottle. Pours a medium lasting ivory head, with attractive lacing, over a cloudy, amber orange (SRM 10) body....nose is apricot, hints of cereal....taste is apricot, light sweetness, finishing with light tart acid...mouth feel thick, carbonation adds nice tingling spritz. This is a well done Fruit Beer. There is enough character from the apricot, and adequate acid to help balance the sweetness that comes naturally from the fruit. This is the best of the fruit series so far. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

Bottle. Pale yellow with no head. Massive apricot aroma, a little lactic. Taste has sharp apricot, little yoghurty. Tangy. Ok

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 canít seem to find the right setting to drink a beer which is that filling at 5.1 ABV.

jbruner (2826) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma is overpoweringly fresh apricots. Taste is holy shit apricot and more fresh apricot with a slightly sour sweet finish. Much better than expected.

Huhzubendah (2807) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Bright orange sunshine body with a thin white collar. Sweet apricot aroma. Sugary, candied fruits, dried apricot. Some nice things going on. This is a suitable beer for one who gravitates toward the sweeter side. Personally, I find this cloying. A few ounces is more than sufficient. A bottle to be shared several ways.

Fratto (2803) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2013
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.

pintbypint (2798) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 27, 2012
550ml brown bottle. Hazy gold pour, somewhat noisy white cap that settles to a nice inch or so of rocky foam. Strong apricot fruit nose, jammy, floral. taste has some fruit sweetness up front, gains the tart and tangy character from the fruit midway, slight lemony note, dries up a bit in the finish, notes of grainy malt. Medium body and carbonation. Fruits hit their mark here, tastes pretty natural and not overly sweet. Well done, would drink this again.
