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.

Aurelius (5158) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Good bottle, standard Sam Smith throwback label; foggy gold. Pleasantly sour, pickled apricot aroma. Sweet and tart, you can almost feel the fuzzy apricot skin on your tongue, lightly bitter. Medium body, medium tangy finish. Thanks, LuckyDog.

superspak (5018) - Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2014
550 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 6/24/2013. Pours lightly hazy bright gold color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge apricot, peach, orange, pear, honey, wheat, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance of juicy apricot, fruity yeast ester, and malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big tart apricot, peach, orange, pear, wheat, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, peach, pear, apple, wheat, honey, bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic robustness of juicy apricot, fruity yeast ester, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/tartness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly slick/syrupy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic fruit beer. Tons of robust and balanced tart apricot and pale malt sweetness; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

visionthing (4957) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 25, 2016
35,5cl bottle from Rimi, Tallinn. Pours close to completely clear golden with a modest, white head. Surprisingly fruity aroma - ripe apricots all the way. Almost a bit too much for my taste, but feels quite natural somehow. Medium sweet with apricot dominated flavour and some acidic notes. Quite refreshing and fairly easy to drink.

minutemat (4804) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Aug 15, courtesy of Mike S. Cant actually recall having an apricot beer before. This is lovely. Vibrant apricot taste, its almost like an apricot juice drink than a beer. But as I love fruit, and smoothies, I cant help falling in love with this. Delish.
