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.

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.

The appearance is cloudy peach with a medium head. The aroma is fruity but also a bit meaty and there is a yeasty beer underneath. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer to try but it has an off aftertaste that throws it for me.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2012
550mL bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a touch of pink. Looks like Apricot juice. Thick creamy white foam. Aroma of apricot puree, loads of fruit. Distant floral hops? No essence of malt. Tastes mildly sweet, a touch of fruit tartness. Again it tastes like apricot nectar. So good and fruity, it feels healthy; like a smoothie. Thick texture, heavy bodied, light ABV. Apricot has dominated the existence of all the senses in this beer, in the best ways possible. Very refreshing, an excellent fruit beer. (3342)

Vaiz (4248) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting at De Molen, hosted by dEnk. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruit kwark, very very fruity and creamy. Flavor is very sweet, thin and fruity. Almost no resemblance to beer, more like cider. Well balanced and well made, but I really donít like the style.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting. Aroma is huge apricot, like those cheap little puddings, not much else. Flavour is sweet and tangy, cider like, light wort note. Okay. More a cider or lemonade.

minutemat (4173) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Aug 15, courtesy of Mike S. Canít actually recall having an apricot beer before. This is lovely. Vibrant apricot taste, itís almost like an apricot juice drink than a beer. But as I love fruit, and smoothies, I canít help falling in love with this. Delish.

robinvboyer (4118) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Clear orange pour, big white head. Very sweet apricot aroma, floral honey, and light pale malts. Regular mouth feel and medium carb. The finish is not as sweet as the aroma leads on. The finish is lightly bitter, and a touch tart. The sweetness is quick, and dry, and pleasantly fruity. Nice stuff.

bottle. cloudy gold with a large, fluffy, stable white head. strong, apricot nose. creamy and full bodied. drinks like juice. sweet but not overly so. lots genuine apricot flavors over a bright, well made, hefty, wheat beer. i think these samuel smith fruit beer offerings have all been great.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of apricot and light malt. Cloudy light amber color, smooth white head that stays, small waves of lace. Taste is mild malt infused with solid natural apricot flavoring. Maybe a bit of bittering in the end. This is more about the apricot than it is beer, but it refreshes, and drinks easy.
