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.

Poured from bottle, pours a clear bubbly gold with a thin white head, aroma has a nice amount of apricot and a hint of funk mixed in too, flavor has a sweet fruity front end with a light mouthfeel, light drinking and enjoyable.

ciocanelu (591) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 13, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Slightly hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is fruity, slightly fermented, but you can definitely tell itís apricot. Itís sweet but not cloying, even a bit tart at first but mostly itís like an apricot soda made from fruit syrup. Body is smooth but has also good carbonation. Overall itís an enjoyable fruit beer.

Pyobon (1220) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2015
(Bottle) Clear pale gold with slight white head. Lovely intense apricot aroma with hints of leather and funk. Full bodied, rather like a thin fruit juice, with pleasant gentle carbonation. Lovely taste but more like an alcoholic fruit juice than a beer. It's almost all fresh apricot with a slightly drier finish than fruit juice. Nice but is it really a beer? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minutemat (3222) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Aug 15, courtesy of Mike S. Canít actually recall having an apricot beer before. This is lovely. Vibrant apricot taste, itís almost like an apricot juice drink than a beer. But as I love fruit, and smoothies, I canít help falling in love with this. Delish.

355ml bottle (Pudel, Tallinn)
Scary sharp aroma, i guess some apricot. And wensleydale cheese - ugh! Looks good, bright gold, but huge tight peristent spongy head. Slightly sharp, slightly sweet and sticky palate. Simple sweet malty body, and slightly fake fruit juice apricot. Remarkably drinkable considering the horror in the aroma. Slips down easily. Donít like it, but can fight my way down.
