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.

Ughsmash (7426) - 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.

downender (7253) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle from Gardiner & Haskins, Bristol. Pale amber with a slight white head and moderate carbonation. Light arma of apricot, peach juice and a hint of lemon zest, with a trace of rustic yeast. Flavour had some sweetish fruit juice to start, before some more substantial malts, and then a dryish finish which left some tannins in the mouth. Avoided being syrupy, which is commendable. Good.

drowland (7112) - Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2012
11/10/12. Bottle sampled at Grassroots. Hazy orange yellow pour with a small yellowish head. Fruity apricot aroma with a hint of tartness. The flavor is also sweet apricot but with a bit of sour as well. Apricot isn’t really my thing but this isn’t atrocious.
