This stuff really tastes like apricots. If they put something else on tap after it,without changing lines, that will have an apricot flavor as well. (even if they clean the lines.)

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2003 Quite nice for a fruit beer. One of the few drinkable beers for some non-beer drinking freinds of mine, but perhaps that's not a good point. Very weak aroma, and flavors are good, although they don't merge well. Overly sweet, but still quite bland.

Terminus (3316) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 5, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2003 Don't let the name scare you away. A pleasent aroma and flavor makes this a unique beer perfect for relaxing.

very fruity, somewhat crisp, but don’t have too many you might attract fruit flys!

True to its name aroma, true but not pushy. I do not like in general fruit beers because often they use overpowering flavors. In this case it was balanced well. Fruity at front but softly bitter at the finish. Interesting, well made fruit flavored ale.

A nice fruit brew, though I can’t say I’m a huge fan of fruit. The apricot is definatly strong, though it appears to have a hint of nut in it. Not bad, but not the greatest. Apricot is a good choice for flavor though.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2002
Just the combination of apricot juice and beer. Quite disappointing and boring. Not bad, just 2 distinct flavors. They don’t clash or compliment each other. They just ... happen.

It’s certainly what it says it is. I like apricots, and I like beer - do I like them at the same time? Well, one glass of this is not too bad at all. Actually, Pyramid has done a pretty good job of accomplishing their goal.

Pale golden/orange color, nice apricot aroma. Light, pleasing apricot flavor that fades fast to a very light,dry tartness, leading me to take another sip to get the apricot back.
