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.

550 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with moderate head that settles quickly. Aromas of fresh apricots and a bit of fuzzy peach. Flavors of fresh nectarine with only a note of the beer from the body and a bit of toasted malts. Well carbonated. An extremely good alcoholic fruit drink. Beer? I donít know ,but well done.

crazyvin (1993) - New York, USA - NOV 10, 2012
500ml bottle. Body had a nice cloudy golden hue with a white head that had good retention and great lace. Aroma had a complex aroma with some nice apricot notes, there was a nice acidity to it reminding me of citric acid. Some mild malt notes. Flavor had a nice sweetness to it, apricot flavor really played well with the malts, but the yeast really complemented the apricots adding some nice almost wild yeast characteristics. Finish was nice and sweet. Mouthfeel was full.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2013
A pleasant surprise. Aroma is freshly cut apricots with just a hint of lemon. Pours hazy yellow with a big frothy head. Taste is fresh apricot, some noticeable stale bread finish. Great fresh fruit mouthfeel. Was very happy with the showcase of the fruit. I will be looking for this again.

EdKing (1983) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods Kensington, London. Colour is almost clear golden amber, thin head head. Nose is very fragrant apricot, but thereís also some mango, like a mango lasso drink. Some lactic. Itís 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.

TheJester (1963) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2014
550 mL bottle. Lots of apricot in this one, but somehow itís not overwhelming. And Iím not a huge fan of apricots. A little sweet, but otherwise a solid brew.

TheCametron (1877) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a generous white head. Nice apricot aroma. Odd becasue I wouldnít previously have thought of apricots as having a very distinctive aroma. Flavour is a supreme balance of malt and fruit with a touch of wheat. The apricot is very well rendered. A touch oversweet on the finish. This is probably the best fruit beer Iíve tasted.
