Poured from a refrigerated bottle into a brandy snifter. Pours a partly hazy orange color with a white head of foam. The aroma is as much like an apricot as anything else I have ever had. More than Fou’Foune even. There’s not much in the way of tartness, although there is just a hint. Taste is like biting into a fresh apricot. This beer is great! I wouldn’t mind having some more of it. Nisse666 (7419) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2013

F: apricote pure, fizzy, apricote marmealde, medium bitterness, wee tart feeling... great stuff reminds me of the childhood apricot pure Bill Becker (1036) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - DEC 25, 2013
A clear and bright straw gold colour, there’s 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 it’s 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 it’s just right. DroolYeast (1489) - Odder, DENMARK - APR 23, 2014
355 ml bottle.
Aroma of a lot of sweet apricot.
Pours clear golden with white head. Virtually none lasting.
Vinous sour fruity taste. Sweet apricot. Lemon.
Finish of sour and sweet apricot. Ends dry.
Sparkling lively carbonation. Sweet sugarwater texture - thicker than watery. MayumiH (1214) - - AUG 18, 2014
Yeah so I had three Samuel Smith fruit beers so far, which are cherry. raspberry aand apricot. My favourite one is definitely apricot. I don’t even like apricot but I really liked it as fruit beer. Samuel Smith did a real good job on this one. Wonderful :P

A great fruit Beer without too much sweetness caribou43 (1024) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - NOV 21, 2016
I took this bottle from the beer of the world in Zürich. 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. SSSteve (4006) - - APR 15, 2012
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 (2538) - 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 I’m 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.
