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.

jbruner (4740) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma is overpoweringly fresh apricots. Taste is holy shit apricot and more fresh apricot with a slightly sour sweet finish. Much better than expected.

robinvboyer (4667) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
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.

stouby (4666) - Holbæk, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle at home, from Fakta Harrislee. Clear yellow with a white head. Aroma light to medium fruity, apricot. Flavor medium sweet apricot, not cloying. Medium body.

SarkyNorthener (4620) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to bjammin, cheers Ben. Pale yellow beer with small head. Aroma of apricot, syrup and honey. Taste is apricot, sweet and some tangy notes with malts. Good.

2.3
Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting at De Molen, hosted by dEnk. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruit kwark, very very fruity and creamy. Flavor is very sweet, thin and fruity. Almost no resemblance to beer, more like cider. Well balanced and well made, but I really don’t like the style.

3.4
rondphoto (4448) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 24, 2016
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of apricot and light malt. Cloudy light amber color, smooth white head that stays, small waves of lace. Taste is mild malt infused with solid natural apricot flavoring. Maybe a bit of bittering in the end. This is more about the apricot than it is beer, but it refreshes, and drinks easy.

thegreenrooster (4402) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Pour is a clear-ish yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a floral apricot. Flavor is also a nice apricot without the sweetness of the strawberry beer. This one I would get again. Nice mild apricot flavor with a more dry finish.

The appearance is cloudy peach with a medium head. The aroma is fruity but also a bit meaty and there is a yeasty beer underneath. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer to try but it has an off aftertaste that throws it for me.

3.6
martjoobolut (4387) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle (from Koht). Pours dark golden with whiteish head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is intense apricot, sweetness, sourness. Flavor is sweet and sour, fruits, apricot. Overall: good. It’s exactly what it claims to be - an apricot beer.
