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.

S_Side_Smitty (578) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Pours a cloudy apricot color with a thick white head. Aroma is fermented fruit (almost like a cider), sour & yeasty. Taste is sweet apricots up front transitioning into light malts for the finish. Good stuff.

tightslice (380) - 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.

thegreenrooster (3505) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Pour is a clear-ish yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a floral apricot. Flavor is also a nice apricot without the sweetness of the strawberry beer. This one I would get again. Nice mild apricot flavor with a more dry finish.

Cask at The Captain Kidd, Wapping, London, Saturday 23rd May 2015 Warm gold in colour with a slim white head. Lots of apricot on the nose and really apricot in the mouth although a rather different beast to Fou Foune, very pleasant but quite sweet, juicy apricots aplenty. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.5

GreatDane1632 (938) - USA - MAY 14, 2015
Rated from notes taken 22 Apr 2012 -- Bottle poured into a pint glass. The beer is much like the organic cider in appearance and aroma. Pleasant for both. Flavor is pretty strong fruit flavor, but not excessive or overdone like some mass produced American examples. Very nice beer to drink.

rxeight (1856) - Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Itís good. But itís not a beer. Itís juice. Like from a juice box. The kind where it says itís apricot juice, but itís really 97% Apple juice, and they add some apricot concentrate to try and fool you into thinking itís apricot juice. Apricot, tough of sweetness and tartness.

jjsint (1339) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle from the Maypole, Cambridge. Yellow-orange, very clear and almost flat. Light apricot, resin, crabapple, Chardonnay in the bouquet. Mellow, subtle sour-sweet taste, which rounds to a slightly more pronounced sourness in the finish. Exceptionally tasty and more like a íproperí beer than many fruit beers.

EtTuCthulhu (1356) - 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.
