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.

Love a good apricot beer, and this is one of the best I've tried. Has a sweet aroma that carries the flavor well. Very smooth and tasty beer. I'd recommend to anyone who loves a sweet fruit beer.

Ekologiczne piwo owocowe. Przyjemny aromat glownie owoce pomaranczowe. Mirabelka, brzoskwinie, morele i nektarynki. W smaku tez te owoce ale zdecydowanie wiecej tej nektarynki. Piana spora i w miare trwala. Barwa jasno pomaranczowa, mam wrazenie ze lekko mglista choc osadku nie bylo. Bardzo owocowo i deserowo. Polecam

Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Slight hazy golden with white head. Apricot jam. Maybe some soft malts too, but basically lots of apricot jam. Sweet pear and light herbs. Medium sweet, light bitter and tart. Medium bodied. Very fruity but in a nice way, very drinkeable.

imdownthepub (15333) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2017
Bottled, 355ml at The Three Goats Heads, Oxford. Gold with white head. There is quite a sharp apricot character to this, very fruity with a touch of acidity. Clean and palate cleansing, quite refreshing. We were pleasantly surprised with this one. Reasonable.

Rune (13508) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2017
355ml bottle shared with Steinar at the Samuel Smiths pub Angel Inn. Bright golden body under a remaining white head blanketing the glass. Herbal dry apricot aroma. Honeyed sweet apricot to the taste buds. Sweet fruity ending. Drinkable, but far too sweet in the long run. (Leeds 04.07.2017).

Heavy notes of apricot, extremely fruit forward and sweet, but pleasant character, great ale backbone, not bitter or sour in the slightest, crowd-pleasing! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Been eyeing this one for nearly a year in the cellar, but was never all all enthusiastic about trying it. As the expiration date has now just passed, it is time to face the call of duty. Pours hazy light orange from bottle and leaves a frothy white head that soon fades. The aroma is fairly one-sided with lots and lots of apricot. The taste is the beer’s strength, being both tart and sweet yet not overly so of either. Lots of apricot and citric flavor, with lesser notes of honey and pineapple.The prickly carbonation and nicely balanced mix of flavors make this one both interesting and refreshing. Won me over despite initial skepticism. Good!
