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.

Clear orange pour, big white head. Very sweet apricot aroma, floral honey, and light pale malts. Regular mouth feel and medium carb. The finish is not as sweet as the aroma leads on. The finish is lightly bitter, and a touch tart. The sweetness is quick, and dry, and pleasantly fruity. Nice stuff.
