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.

A decent fruit beer. Since I donít care for apricot, I am rating this to my tastes not how good it is. Lovers of apricot would love this. Aroma was big, sweet and fruity. Apricot and sugar. Pour was a nice cloudy orange with a one finger white head. Taste was big sweet and fruity. Apricot and fruit cocktail with nice carbonation. The sweetness was a little too much and there was not anything to balance it out.

Pours super cloudy, dirty orange. Aromas of cereals and apricot. Relatively full bodied with some maltiness up front, and then itís all chewy apricot. Finish is slightly tart. Very fruity.

poisoneddwarf (1743) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUL 29, 2012
18.7 oz bottle rated yesterday. Looks like pureed apricots--cloudy, same hue of orange; has a collapsing white head. Aroma is apricoty, biscuity. Taste is mostly tart with a dry finish; flavor is apricots with a tinge of metal. Has a definte British flavor; reminiscent of Sam Smithís other brews. Definitely enjoyable, but maybe not as good as I was hoping.

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.

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.

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.

The appearance is cloudy peach with a medium head. The aroma is fruity but also a bit meaty and there is a yeasty beer underneath. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer to try but it has an off aftertaste that throws it for me.

Pours orange gold with thick white head. Aroma of smokey apricots and wheaty beer, hint of yeast in the background. Tastes of apricot is not at all overpowering, its very nicely balanced with the beer. Apricot mixed with slightly yeasty breadiness, and a nice beer crispness to back up the sweetness that coats your tongue from the apricots. I donít know if I can say anything bad about this, I really enjoyed this beer and its by far my favorite "fruit" beer, though it doesnt behave like other fruit beers.

From a bottle poured a hazy apricot color with a small amount of head. Nice tart apricot flavor with a lingering finish.
