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.

Blueshawk (451) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- trb goldene Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Aprikose, Honig und grnem Apfel - passend spritzige Carbonisierung - der Antrunk hat einen leicht vergorenen Apfelmosttouch - erst in der Mitte gewinnt die Aprikose dann die Oberhand - und genau hier wird mir das Bier dann eine Spur zu slich - im Abgang wird die Se durch die Hopfenbitternis etwas nivelliert Fazit: Interessantes Fruchtbier, mit einem etwas zu sen Touch

FinnIckler (136) - GERMANY - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle from Drinks of the World Winterthur. Pours hazy orange with fast depleting head. Smells of apricot with hints of citrus and banana. Taste starts wonderfully refreshing, with hints of citrus and sweetness. Body is full of apricot and just a bit of bitterness. Finish is sweet and a bit sour. Great Beer for the summer, its really refreshing and tastes great. Will try the whole organic fruit beer range when I get the chance!

drpimento (3222) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Very good. Aromas fresh, ripe apricots, yeast, and a hint of malt. Flavors similar to nose, mostly sweet offset with a bit of tart and just right carbonation. Slightly chewy. Excellent finish. Goes great with an aged cheddar.

Surprisingly nice lacing. Has a thick frothy white head which is very sweet and fruity. Golden translucent in colour. Aroma of apricot, fruit preserves, grain. Taste is again apricot, particularly dried apricots actually, honey sweetness and bit of sour without feeling acidic. Wheat is present as well. Slightly bitter on the finish. High carbonation, average bodied. Overall one of the better fruit beers Ive tried and a recommended example of the style.

bartlebier (3530) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2016
355ml gorgeous bottle bbNOV17, BierH. Bref: would make a great dessert contrast of funky-sweet natural apricot flavours to Cantillons FouFoune. - So this is only bottled at Samuel Smith, brewed and blended on the basis of some sort of organic wheat ale by Melbourn Bros? Ingr?: 4% apricot concentrate and extract...somehow less than the 15-20% fruit in fruit lambiek, yet just as aromatic. Nose: reminds me of "confituurke" aka apricot jam-slathered Belgian pastry...sweet apricot jam, candi sugar, natural apricot peel and stones included. Drinks astoundingly uncloying, if fruity-sweet. Apricot yoghurt and quark dessert comes to mind on account of the wheat porridge underneath. - Will revisited teamed up with FouFoune!

0.335l bottle. Bright hazy orange color, white head with some lacing. Taste is nice but almost feels like syrup.
