Our flavorful apricot ale boldly combines the taste and aroma of fresh apricot with the smooth finish of wheat malt. Its refreshingly unfiltered character and fruit flavor make it an ale worth savoring.

Note: Previously Pyramid Audacious Apricot Ale.

50% 2 Row Pale Barley, 50% Malted Wheat

Reviewed from notes. I had this in a pint glass every time I’ve had it. The appearance was a filtered looking orange to brown in color with a one finger white foamy head that lasts for about a minute and delicately dies into the body. The lacing is light but its there trying to spiderweb but slides for the most part. The smell was apricot and delicately backed up by some wheatiness to it. The taste was apricot sweet with the wheat coming back to assist in the taste. There is an apricot aftertaste and a dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a medium and was fairly sessionable. The carbonation seemed okay for the style and for me. Overall, I’m pretty sure Pyramid did what they wanted to as far as making an Apricot Ale. Try it if you see it, however, I’ve had this with plain cheesecake once and that was a stellar dessert, though I was extremely full afterwards.

On tap at the Yard House, Houston. An unclear orange golden beer with just about no head. There’s lots of canned peaches on the nose, not so much apricots I think. Orange peel hints too. Tasteful apricot candy flavor with some canned peaches and orange peel. Medium body and a bit hard carbonation, quite dry. Peaches and syrup finish, still far from sweet and sticky. Sort of quenching this one, but also rather boring. 140516

12 oz bottle. Hazy golden pour with an off white head. Nice apricot aroma and nice apricot flavor. Not overpowering with just the right amount of apricot. One of the better beers I have had this month!

Palate affected by head cold, but mostly unimpressed with this. Faint fruit flavor, weak body, dull appearance. not much going on here.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2014
Bottle: Pyramid, your Apricot Ale... Woof! Off-orange body with a fat haze & a wispy, meager "head" that’s gone in moments. Artificial aroma & taste with medicinal, chalky apricot... Actually, the apricot itself is difficult to discern. Just a generic, forced fruity citrus note that barely peaks over the medicinal, chalky, vitamin-like nature of the flavoring. Pale malty sugars & astringent metallic notes. Even some musk. This beer is the opposite of good. Quite hard to drink, actually. Lingering aftertaste of Flintstone’s vitamins & sidewalk chalk, no chasers allowed. Garbage.

This was probably the worst fruit beer I’ve ever had. It has an overpowering fake apricot/peach flavor. Low hopped and and with wheat and malt flavor.

Decent, sweet ale. Enjoyed drinking it. Drinkable, taste of a grainy ale with apricot. Definitely something different.

Rating #906 - January 13, 2014 - Beer flight at Craft Beer Market #yeg, 4 oz sample. Pours a light hazy yellow colour, fairly thick white foam. Aroma and taste is sweet, apricots and peaches. Great weissbier character as well, presence of yeast, wheat, coriander, mild clove. Excellent fruit weizen style.
