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.

Clear golden color with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Apricots and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet apricots, toasted malt and a touch of grass. The finish is sweet with a pure apricot aftertaste. Decent overall.

jbruner (2012) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma is overpoweringly fresh apricots. Taste is holy shit apricot and more fresh apricot with a slightly sour sweet finish. Much better than expected.

PorterPounder (5207) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Liquor Loft - 500 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy medium golden-orange with a sticky white head that sticks around a while. Clean fresh apricot aroma, a hint of an orange dreamsicle. Flavor is tangy and sour with some yeasty accents, some natural tasting apricot notes, a touch of orange peel, slightly earthy. Mouthfeel is thick enough, just a trace of metal in the back end. A pleasant diversion.

Very well crafted brew with the taste of real fresh apricots. Extremely enjoyable and easy to drink during the summer months especially.

18.7 oz. bottle- Pours a muddy hazy orange with a very thin tan head that reduces immediately to bug bubbles on the rim. The aroma is apricots actually, tart, very fruity, appealing. The taste is the same, tart apricots, they really resonate, no complex flavors, it actually tastes like apricot juice with some carbonation. Body is medium to almost thin, carbonation is medium. Overall this is really good, would be a great summer drink, I almost feel like it should have ice cubes in it, it doesn’t have much of a beer flavor.

This is nicer than I hoped. Some funk and sourness to it with lots of apricot. I think more beer-wise than some are giving credit, though I don’t think credit is the right word. What I mean is, that they’re wrong. This is reasonably beery.

The aroma is pretty much what you’d expect, plenty of fresh apricot. The flavor is extremely well balanced with apricot, carmel, smooth bitterness and a touch of noble hop flavor. Finishes a little sweet and tangy.
