Very jammy, high in malt, lovely verrrry apricoty taste. This is close to what I wish Pyramid apricot tasted like and falls a little short of my fave apricot wheat from Lost Coast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had from the can, poured into a glass. Hazy gold color, strong apricot aroma. The actual apricot taste is artificial and the souring is harsh and unpleasant. Tastes like it was soured with straight lactic acid. Carbonation was med to high.

arminjewell (9232) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest 2014, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big apricot, white fruit, peach, hint of white grape into some nice wheat, biscuit, bready notes, hints of lacto and lemon. Taste is a nice tart lacto, lemony start into some apricot, peach, nice stone fruit into a bit of biscuit, bread, some yeasty notes, finishing sour, slightly sweet. Tasty, but not a whole lot going on.

adnielsen (10427) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2014
On tap @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pours a cloudy yellow appearance with a nice white head. ton of apricot and peaches with a bit of lactic and vanilla. Flavor is pretty straight forward. Lightly to moderately tart. A fair amount of fruit but kind of one dimensional. Moderately sweet. Pretty easy to drink and it seemed to be popular with the ladies at our table, but not horribly complex. I would get fucked up on it.

Aholmb1 (134) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - APR 15, 2013
Appearance: Nice head when first poured, the head dissolved pretty quickly but still slightly intact with a frothy look, there is a lacing left on the glass from the beer, very cloudy golden color, almost opaque, very appetizing color, looks like a fruity beer Aroma: Wow, Apricot is obviously the strongest key note to this beer, the apricot smell is very pronounced, very refreshing smell and seems like it would be a great summer beer Taste: Apricots, apricots, apricots. do not taste any bitterness, it is a very light beer with a great fruit keynote, pretty smooth beer, definitely can tell they use a lot of fruit when brewing Palette: can feel the carbonation on the tongue, apricot aftertaste is where you can taste a lot of flavor Overall: This is a very refreshing beer, fruit beer are one of my favorite therefore I throughly enjoy this apricot blonde. It is nice to actually be able to taste the fruit that they brew with.
