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.

Beerhunter111 (20503) - P´Castle, GERMANY - JUL 22, 2016
Leicht trübes goldenes Bier mit mittelgroßen weißen schaumkrone. Geruch sehr fruchtig, frische Aprikosen, süß. Geschmack nach süßen Aprikosen, frisch und natürlich, okay.

3.1
rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle at a Samuel Smith-pub quite close to Charing Cross. Hazy apricot color, with a very nice lasting offwhite head. Apricot aroma, orange, peach, malty, biscuits, rather on the sweet side. Apricot flavor, sweet, oranges, citrus notes, sugary, banana notes, pine apples. Rather sweet fruity, but somehow it gets away with it.

harrisoni (18584) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle from Trafalager Wines, Brighton. Clear gold with lasting white head. Apricot jam on aroma. Yes quite sweet but not overly cloying. Even a touch of sourness on the finish. It’s lovely. Apricot jam beer. Lovely.

mcberko (17902) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle at PIB, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out pungent apricots, with not much else. Flavour is similar, with loads of apricot, with a medium residual sugar quality. Very fruity and mildly sugary. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Great stuff.

FatPhil (16118) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2015
355ml bottle (Pudel, Tallinn)
Scary sharp aroma, i guess some apricot. And wensleydale cheese - ugh! Looks good, bright gold, but huge tight peristent spongy head. Slightly sharp, slightly sweet and sticky palate. Simple sweet malty body, and slightly fake fruit juice apricot. Remarkably drinkable considering the horror in the aroma. Slips down easily. Don’t like it, but can fight my way down.

2.5
MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle, 5.1%. Lagery and buttery aroma, hint of citric fruit. Clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is sweet and buttery with a citric an teaish fruit in the finish.

3.1
Benzai (15625) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2014
Sampled from bottle @ De Molen 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Clear yellow - golden color, virtually no head. Aroma is just sweetness of apricot and sweet apple. Tastes sweetness and apricot and that’s basically it. Guess that’s what they intended so well done. Don’t really get any beer flavors though, more like a cider.

3.7
bhensonb (15253) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy "apricot" gold with a 4 finger creamy beige head. The aroma is apricot skin. Med body, almost. Flavor is apricot and mixed grain. Surely wheat is there. It’s neither sweet nor bitter. Fairly floral as well as apricot. Certainly a nice drink.

3.3
imdownthepub (14557) - 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.

Borup (14551) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle at CBF 2014. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of apricot, yeast, herbal and bitterness.
