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.

superspak (4572) - Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2014
550 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 6/24/2013. Pours lightly hazy bright gold color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge apricot, peach, orange, pear, honey, wheat, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance of juicy apricot, fruity yeast ester, and malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big tart apricot, peach, orange, pear, wheat, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, peach, pear, apple, wheat, honey, bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic robustness of juicy apricot, fruity yeast ester, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/tartness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly slick/syrupy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic fruit beer. Tons of robust and balanced tart apricot and pale malt sweetness; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
