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.

Boutip (4995) - 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.

DutchDrebus (4473) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle @ Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaahs Fruity Valentines tasting. Clear golden colour with a small to medium sized white head that doesn’t last. Smells yogho yogho, apricot, peachy, sweet, syruppy. Tastes sweet but slightly sour at the same time, natural, apricot, peach, nice. Refreshing. Medium body, soft carbo.

wlajwl (4257) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 2, 2012
Aroma is yeast and apricot juice/skin. The flavor is apricot juice and a big sweetness/sourness that dominates into the finish. Not exceptional but pretty good still.

DrSilverworm (7790) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2012
550ml bottle, shared with my mom. Decent, thin white head. Completely hazy yellow / orange color, looks very fruity. Lighter carbonation, more dry texture. Very nice, pronounced apricot juice flavor. Nice, sort of tart sweet taste. Nice tasty juicy ale. I wasn’t really impressed with the first few beers I tried from this brewery, but this one is a winner. Maybe I should try more of their "organic" offerings..

Bottled sample at Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of apricots, tropical fruits, caramel. The taste is fruit rollups, apricot and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Pretty tasty.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle:   This is one smooth brew, lots of Apricot and not the fake stuff either.   Dark straw in color, very thick, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Nose is a little dank, has an Apricot aroma and also a bit of fruity cheese and tootsie roll, surprisingly enough.   Just like with New Glarus, had you given this to me and not told me what it was I wouldnt think of it as beer.   Liked this one.

RumRunner101 (839) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Pours super cloudy, dirty orange. Aromas of cereals and apricot. Relatively full bodied with some maltiness up front, and then it’s all chewy apricot. Finish is slightly tart. Very fruity.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Murky orange pour with a large thick white head that laces. Nose is very juice apricot juice with some subtle sweet malt in the background. Flavor is nicely balanced sweet tart apricot juice with notes of grapefruit and more citrus. Medium light bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty damn tasty fruit beer.

500mL bottle. Poured cloudy peach with a nice cap of white head. The aroma picked up lots of fairly sweet apricot and peachy notes, with touches of must and earth.. no complaints. The flavor opened tart, with apricot skins and a bit of wheat character.. sweeter apricots (not much peach here) at the core with wheaty undertones.. deeper apricot character and wheat tartness on the finish.. tasty stuff. Medium-bodied with just the right engaging tartness on the palate.. smooth across the middle.. very good feel and flow. I enjoyed it much.
