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.

Tons of apricot and orange flavor, interesting fermentation.. somewhere between champaign and a really subtle sour/wild ale. Great beer.

jsmerig (1437) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Pours a pale golden yellow with a white head. Aroma intense with fresh apricots. Taste is very sweet followed by a slightly tart orange citrus turn. Ends up a little to much towards the sweet note. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2013
A pleasant surprise. Aroma is freshly cut apricots with just a hint of lemon. Pours hazy yellow with a big frothy head. Taste is fresh apricot, some noticeable stale bread finish. Great fresh fruit mouthfeel. Was very happy with the showcase of the fruit. I will be looking for this again.

GregClow (3068) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear & bright orange-gold body with a good sized white head. Aroma of apricot nectar and lightly toasted grain. Flavour is a great combo of a clean, simple golden ale and fresh apricot notes that start quite sweet, but develop a nice tartness in the finish, where a bit of Earl Grey tea comes through as well. Really nice stuff - one of the best non-lambic fruit beers Iíve had in quite some time, in fact.

EtTuCthulhu (1390) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 18, 2015
This beer pours a very clear golden color with a small white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends apricots and bready malts, and the taste is similar: mildly sweet and slightly sour with strong apricot flavors all the way through the aftertaste. The palate fuses a slick texture, medium-light body, and a soft carbonation.

tightslice (745) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. A somewhat skimpy ale heavily weighted with apricot. Mostly delicious and refreshing but would have loved to had something more unctuous. Great if youíre in the mood for a summer-shandy-type-situation.
