UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Nice orangish color. Some head. Odd smell of barley, rice, wheat, fruits and funk. Taste is a mind blow. How do they put all that fresh apricot taste in that little bottle?? Delicious

Bottle pours a somewhat cloudy orange with a foamy orange head. Taste is spritzy citrus and apricots. Mouthfeel is somewhat dry and mildy tart.

Bottle, shared around the table at game night (Caverna!). Mellow golden body average white head. Full on apricot aroma, natural but sweet, with bready undertones. Sweet juicy apricot opens the palate, but there is a nice malt structure here that shares equal billing-- this isn’t just a fruit juice fizzy drink-- and best of all, there is a nice bitterness in the finish. There is no comment on the label about the hops used in this beer, but they impart a balance that make this fruit beer such a pleasure. A great patio brew.

Pours out of the bottle in hazy orange colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of apricot jam and leaves. Taste of fresh apricots, apricot jam, sugar, leaves, mild hops. Easy and nice to drink, enjoyed it.

Wonderful brew which reminds you of a sweetish lambic rather than a cheap fruit beer. Full apricot with balanced carbo, some sweets and slight bitterness in the end. Classy one.

Flaska från bier-deluxe. Gyllenfärgad med högt vitt skum. Aprikosdoft- och smak som samspelar bättre med ölet än de andra fruktölen från Melbourn Bros. Har funkar maltens knäckighet riktigt bra ihop med aprikoserna och kärn- och skalbeskan stramar upp den annars väl söta drycken lite. Bör drickas riktigt välkyld en varm dag.

550 mL bottle. Clear golden with a soda like white cap of head. Big fresh apricot on the nose with a definitively English feeling grain backdrop. Subtle black tea and apple. Juicy fruit and malt sweetness with gentle tannin. Moderate bodyand carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Deliciously multi-dimensional.

"another well made fruit beer by Sam Smiths (i also liked the cherry and raspberry). the aroma is wonderful...more juice than beerlike, but just exploding with fresh apricot and a slightly tart aroma. body is fuller than expected, as is the look (no-seein through color of apricot juice). the flavor is nice...almost too much fruit, pretty sweet with a hint of tartness and hops and wheat. i wish these were not a couple bucks more than SSmiths regular stuff, but i may revisit the three...this is good. a touch less sweet and a bit more sour and this could be frikkin incredible."

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.
