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.

A clear and bright straw gold colour, theres a small head of foam that dissipates quickly, leaving very little lacing behind. Can the smell get any more apricot-y than this? Wow. Nice mix of sweet and tart going on. The taste leans more to the sweet side but its not even close to being too sweet. Nice tartish notes help with the balancing act and the bit of wheat I get also helps. Love this. With the very low bubble activity seen, I thought maybe the carbonation would be too low but its just right.

Yeah so I had three Samuel Smith fruit beers so far, which are cherry. raspberry aand apricot. My favourite one is definitely apricot. I dont even like apricot but I really liked it as fruit beer. Samuel Smith did a real good job on this one. Wonderful :P

I took this bottle from the beer of the world in Zrich. I drank it relax at Bonfol. In my point of view, it is a nice beer, perfect for the dessert. If I compare with the Belgians, they are not this side sour, due to the way to make the beer differently and due to the water that it is giving one side really mineral. The taste is again mineral, decent touch of apricot, giving a nice sweetness, malt, few hop, regular carbonation, pleasant orange/yellow color, good stuff.

bottle. cloudy gold with a large, fluffy, stable white head. strong, apricot nose. creamy and full bodied. drinks like juice. sweet but not overly so. lots genuine apricot flavors over a bright, well made, hefty, wheat beer. i think these samuel smith fruit beer offerings have all been great.

rubbishystuff (2402) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 At Red Lion on Rockwell. Some apricot ales taste like beer with some apricot in them but this is more like sparkling apricot juice with some beer in it. Cloudy orange-yellow. As a beer Im not sure how to judge it but as a beverage as a whole it is delicious. Just enough bitterness from the beer to keep it from being cloying. Wonderful summer drink. Serving: Bottle Had some again, it is so refreshing and good. Fantastic stuff.
