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.

Aroma of apricots; tastes is mostly apricot with a bit of wheat - and even those are the dominate flavors it somehow tastes ’complex’. Finishes sweet yet tart. A delicious & very sweet apricot beer.

Cloudy Pale orange.Some froth,leaves a little frothy decending lace. Aroma is strange/unique. Its got a fruitlike aroma but the apricot is kind of mutated with some dyacytal/woodines/butterscotch/tartness.Maybe even some leather. Some mineral/light grassyness even. Taste is good with a fruit/cider like quality. Tart and sweet. Some butterynotes,apricot with woody dry -butterscotch,apple cider. Pretty tastey.

harrisoni (15319) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle from Trafalager Wines, Brighton. Clear gold with lasting white head. Apricot jam on aroma. Yes quite sweet but not overly cloying. Even a touch of sourness on the finish. It’s lovely. Apricot jam beer. Lovely.

The_Bish (1124) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2013
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.

Leighton (14389) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear gold with a small, fading white foam head. Nose has some rotting fruits, vague sugary apricots. Medium to big sweet flavor, some faintly tangy apricot. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet and lightly tangy finish, sugry apricot. It’s a touch artificial and syrupy, but the tartness makes it alright.

Strong apricot smell and taste. Still pleasant to drink without much substance. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ---Rate via Beer Buddy for iPhone
