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.

oh6gdx (26432) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Bottled. Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is apricot marmalade, some sweet malts, mild sugary and wine gum like notes. Also a slight wooden tartness to it. Flavour is kind of tartish/sour wood along with apricot and some slight bready and crisp malty notes to it. I had expected something really harsh from this, but it actually turned out to be a quite nice one.

Leighton (20650) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear gold with a small, fading white foam head. Nose has some rotting fruits, vague sugary apricots. Medium to big sweet flavor, some faintly tangy apricot. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet and lightly tangy finish, sugry apricot. Its a touch artificial and syrupy, but the tartness makes it alright.
