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.

To me this tasted like an Apricot shandy. There is a ton of quite delicious apricot juice making this more of a beer cocktail. Don’t get me wrong, the apricots are delicious but it does impart a very sweet flavor. Malt is quit weak and there is some bitterness that I didn’t think flattered the beer much. There is no tartness.

BlackHaddock (5843) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
19th Aug 2015: shared bottle at the Aug Shrewsbury bottle exchange meeting, cheers Mike. Not a beer I would buy myself, I was pleased to see this and the Cherry version for five of us the try. Poured a clear golden colour with a weak white wisp on top. Very Apricot in all aspects and I have to say a lot better than I expected (not so keen on the Cherry option). Says Apricot on the label and it packs a good Apricot punch, I like Apricots!
