COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Handcrafted at Melbourn Bros’ 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 Smith’s 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.

mcberko (9333) - 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.

DrSilverworm (8546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2012
550ml bottle, shared with my mom. Decent, thin white head. Completely hazy yellow / orange color, looks very fruity. Lighter carbonation, more dry texture. Very nice, pronounced apricot juice flavor. Nice, sort of tart sweet taste. Nice tasty juicy ale. I wasn’t really impressed with the first few beers I tried from this brewery, but this one is a winner. Maybe I should try more of their "organic" offerings..

DuffMan (7996) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle, shared around the table at game night (Caverna!). Mellow golden body average white head. Full on apricot aroma, natural but sweet, with bready undertones. Sweet juicy apricot opens the palate, but there is a nice malt structure here that shares equal billing-- this isn’t just a fruit juice fizzy drink-- and best of all, there is a nice bitterness in the finish. There is no comment on the label about the hops used in this beer, but they impart a balance that make this fruit beer such a pleasure. A great patio brew.

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2012
500mL bottle. Poured cloudy peach with a nice cap of white head. The aroma picked up lots of fairly sweet apricot and peachy notes, with touches of must and earth.. no complaints. The flavor opened tart, with apricot skins and a bit of wheat character.. sweeter apricots (not much peach here) at the core with wheaty undertones.. deeper apricot character and wheat tartness on the finish.. tasty stuff. Medium-bodied with just the right engaging tartness on the palate.. smooth across the middle.. very good feel and flow. I enjoyed it much.
