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.

The apricot is very there, so is a ton of sweetness, don't care for it. Smells good enough though.

blklab2007 (2027) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle poured a golden in color with a thick layer of white head that retained well. Aroma has jammy fruit, fruity sweetness, cream cheese, and some malts. Mouth feel is medium light with good carbonation. Flavor again is led by the fruit, more juice than fresh fruit, some sweetness, and some underlying malt. Just too much juice for me.

Cybercat (3571) - Georgia, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Pours a clear, slightly golden yellow with a thick and rather persistent ivory head. Apricot overtone reaches out and touches you from a fair distance. Though quite strong and sweet, it lets through a peep of malt. Flavor is quite fruity, almost more cider or wine (Apricot cider or wine? I suppose it’s doable) than beer; however, the malty undertone reminds you what sort of potent potable this is. Heavy texture has some good beery fizz. Apricot in liquid form. If you love apricots, here’s a brew for you.

MrMeadMan (10) - Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Strong aroma of apricots, good golden color, fairly sweet but given that it is a fruit beer that is to be expected. Light and tart as well.

jercraigs (8106) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
2014-12-23. Dark yellow body with a nice white head and light lace. 3+ Aroma is quite sweet and fruity, apricot character is strong. Flavour is similarly sweet and fruity, lots of apricot character. Smooth average bodied palate, soft to low carbonation. Decent apricot character but not much else. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

Boutip (4917) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle: Poured a bright clear golden color ale with a generous white foamy head with good retention. Aroma of fresh apricot notes is very nice with nice fruity ester notes. Taste is also dominated by fresh apricot notes with some light cereal notes and some fruity ester. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well made with nice fresh apricot notes and with good balance of residual sugar notes.

DarkSong (308) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2014
It pours gold with a large white long lasting head. It has a nice apricot aroma. The fruit and beer flavors blend wonderfully in this beer. It tastes like fresh apricot and has a tart fruit flavor. This is one of the best fruit beers I’ve ever had.
