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 Smith’s 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 to pint glass Consummation: Apricot syrup with a kick. Adjunct: Full on apricot aroma, a bit of an overripe sickly odor, somewhat artificial aftertaste, perhaps apple as well, pretty chalky.

Pours a slightly hazy light amber/yellow from a bottle. This is a surprisingly well-balanced fruit beer. Lots of up front apricot aroma and flavor, but also a nice malt backbone to let you know this really is beer. Also, the apricot tastes more rounded, like real fruit or juice was used as opposed to extract or "natural" flavor. Very good beer.

Poured from bottle, pours a clear bubbly gold with a thin white head, aroma has a nice amount of apricot and a hint of funk mixed in too, flavor has a sweet fruity front end with a light mouthfeel, light drinking and enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Slightly hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is fruity, slightly fermented, but you can definitely tell it’s apricot. It’s sweet but not cloying, even a bit tart at first but mostly it’s like an apricot soda made from fruit syrup. Body is smooth but has also good carbonation. Overall it’s an enjoyable fruit beer.

I just don’t like it. One thing about it, it makes me want to eat an apricot.
