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.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Bottled. Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is apricot marmalade, some sweet malts, mild sugary and wine gum like notes. Also a slight wooden tartness to it. Flavour is kind of tartish/sour wood along with apricot and some slight bready and crisp malty notes to it. I had expected something really harsh from this, but it actually turned out to be a quite nice one.

Rask0lnikov (786) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2016
355ml bottle. Rather pale yellow colour. Medium white head. Sweetness and apricots in the aroma. Some sour notes too. Slightly sour apricoty beginning. Fruity in the middle. Apricots and slightly sour notes in the end. The palate is sweet. Rather light bodied, medium carbonated, drinkable fruit beer. Nothing special. The sweetness was too intensive.

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2016
0.355 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is cloudy and yellow. Taste has obviously apricot. This is somewhat dry but still a bit too sweet for me. I would like some more wild yeast or acidic micro-organisms. Leave the cane sugar out. please.

Blueshawk (392) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- trüb goldene Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Aprikose, Honig und grünem Apfel - passend spritzige Carbonisierung - der Antrunk hat einen leicht vergorenen Apfelmosttouch - erst in der Mitte gewinnt die Aprikose dann die Oberhand - und genau hier wird mir das Bier dann eine Spur zu süßlich - im Abgang wird die Süße durch die Hopfenbitternis etwas nivelliert Fazit: Interessantes Fruchtbier, mit einem etwas zu süßen Touch

FinnIckler (99) - GERMANY - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle from Drinks of the World Winterthur. Pours hazy orange with fast depleting head. Smells of apricot with hints of citrus and banana. Taste starts wonderfully refreshing, with hints of citrus and sweetness. Body is full of apricot and just a bit of bitterness. Finish is sweet and a bit sour. Great Beer for the summer, it’s really refreshing and tastes great. Will try the whole organic fruit beer range when I get the chance!

drpimento (3181) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Very good. Aroma’s fresh, ripe apricots, yeast, and a hint of malt. Flavor’s similar to nose, mostly sweet offset with a bit of tart and just right carbonation. Slightly chewy. Excellent finish. Goes great with an aged cheddar.

Surprisingly nice lacing. Has a thick frothy white head which is very sweet and fruity. Golden translucent in colour. Aroma of apricot, fruit preserves, grain. Taste is again apricot, particularly dried apricots actually, honey sweetness and bit of sour without feeling acidic. Wheat is present as well. Slightly bitter on the finish. High carbonation, average bodied. Overall one of the better fruit beers I’ve tried and a recommended example of the style.
