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 Smiths 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.

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. Its lovely. Apricot jam beer. Lovely.

mcberko (15439) - 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.

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. Dont like it, but can fight my way down.

Benzai (14680) - 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 thats basically it. Guess thats what they intended so well done. Dont really get any beer flavors though, more like a cider.

bhensonb (14509) - 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. Its neither sweet nor bitter. Fairly floral as well as apricot. Certainly a nice drink.

Bottled sample at Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of apricots, tropical fruits, caramel. The taste is fruit rollups, apricot and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Pretty tasty.
