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.

Aroma is yeast and apricot juice/skin. The flavor is apricot juice and a big sweetness/sourness that dominates into the finish. Not exceptional but pretty good still.

dEnk (3795) - 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.

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.

burg326 (3667) - Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle bought at whole foods, poured a light golden color with aromas of all apricot preserves. Not much in the aroma, it translates to the flavor, sweet apricot jelly, annd light grain. Ok beer overall.

Pours completely opaque dark yellow. Aroma is strongly apricot. Taste is slight wheat, almost invisible under the syrupy, nectary, sugary apricot. Wonderful taste...just way too much of it.....

Vaiz (3343) - 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 don’t like the style.
