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.

Benzai (10606) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2014
Sampled from bottle @ De Molen 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Clear yellow - golden color, virtually no head. Aroma is just sweetness of apricot and sweet apple. Tastes sweetness and apricot and thatís basically it. Guess thatís what they intended so well done. Donít really get any beer flavors though, more like a cider.

Bov (10562) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 22, 2014
from Bier-Bienne - hazy dark orange beer with a little foam left; sugary ice cream aroma of apricots; hugely sweet, sticky and medium-bodied, lot of residual sweetness and long artificial notes of apricot - no, thanks

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins and shared with LeninCat. Pours a bit hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Kind of soapy/floral, peach/apricot, apple aroma with maybe a faint hint of diacetyl. Tangy apricot/apple fruity, vanilla, a bit acidic, a bit buttery flavor. Fair amount of sweet, sour, and candy notes. Iím not digging it.

mcberko (9626) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle at PIB, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out pungent apricots, with not much else. Flavour is similar, with loads of apricot, with a medium residual sugar quality. Very fruity and mildly sugary. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Great stuff.
