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.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow. Very smooth, fruity and balanced. A bit too much punch and too Little beer.

c0fein (221) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2014
355ml bottle from Bier-Deluxe

Pale yellow colour with a small white head. Like a sweet juice with alcohol. Luckily this is not so offensive. These Samuel Smiths fruit beers are not for me.

shaynsawchuk (540) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2014
550 mL bottle. Clear golden with a soda like white cap of head. Big fresh apricot on the nose with a definitively English feeling grain backdrop. Subtle black tea and apple. Juicy fruit and malt sweetness with gentle tannin. Moderate bodyand carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Deliciously multi-dimensional.

kevinsenn (1127) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from LCBO. Cleat yellow with big frothy head. Aroma of apricot, honey, and light grains. Taste is syrupy sweet, full of apricots. The finish is more balanced. Fruity and perfectly acceptable.

beer0clock (140) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Golden yellow, carbonated with lots of tiny bubbles, small white head which leaves miminal lacing, smooth, easy drinking, served in a very pretty glass, very good, tasty beer but it should be as at over £5 for only 5.1%! 500ml I think. Bottle at gazebo Kingston.

Vignale (2149) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2014
Flaska från bier-deluxe. Gyllenfärgad med högt vitt skum. Aprikosdoft- och smak som samspelar bättre med ölet än de andra fruktölen från Melbourn Bros. Har funkar maltens knäckighet riktigt bra ihop med aprikoserna och kärn- och skalbeskan stramar upp den annars väl söta drycken lite. Bör drickas riktigt välkyld en varm dag.

Poured light golden with a frothy off white head. Aroma of sweet apricot. Medium body, flavour is medium to heavy sweet, moderate apricot, light bitterness.

MichaelAwesome (4467) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2014
Wonderful brew which reminds you of a sweetish lambic rather than a cheap fruit beer. Full apricot with balanced carbo, some sweets and slight bitterness in the end. Classy one.

McTapps (4468) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in hazy orange colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of apricot jam and leaves. Taste of fresh apricots, apricot jam, sugar, leaves, mild hops. Easy and nice to drink, enjoyed it.
