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


OG: 11.75

Interestingly fruity, but it begins to get a bit on the boring side towards the end of the beer....no complexity, just a lot of apricot malt.

Very nice color and aroma. A lot of fruit in the nose but thatís where the good stuff ends. Thin pallate and overly sweet.

Someday I will drink the fruit beer that will make me say hey, maybe fruit and beer really do belong in the same bottle. Today isnít the day; Pyramid apricot, with its weird chemical version of the fruit, isnít the beer.

A blast of apricot greets the nose immediately. Pours with a beautiful cloudy, orange color. Initial palate is intensely sweet and to me the apricot flavor seemed a bit off; not like biting into a real apricot at all. Has some refreshing qualities, but the artificial fruit flavoring distracts a bit.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 An average beer. The flavor is acceptable. I somewhat enjoyed this beer and hope to get some more off of the tap. Still a nice apricot flavor, but week, could use some more spices, some more malts, a little too watered down for me.

This is fine in terms of fruity aroma, but sadly the taste is too one-dimensional, even bitter. Not a lambic-caliber product, but then, probably not intended as such.

Way fruity. Not too shabby, but only once in a while. Not beer-like enough for normal consumption.

Way too intense for me. The apricot aroma and flavour overpowers with just a slight wheaty taste at the end. I like my fruit flavours much more subtle.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2005 Very interesting, for a fruit beer. Super cloudy, apricot-colored, even! If I have to have a fruity beer, I wouldnít be sad if it was this one. (Lambic of course would be the best... 8)

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2001
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2006 Hazy peach colour. Big apricot aroma, kind of syrupy but not much else. Big sweet apricot taste, hint of wheaty tartness. Sweet & tart finish, still with lots of apricot. Thatís really about it. Pleasant, refreshing, drinkable but not terribly exciting unless you like apricot.

Original rating: Back in the day, before the likes of New Glarus and Quelque Chose, this was considered a definitive North American fruit ale. It is unfiltered, has a peachy colour, and strong sweet apricot flavours, which fall away towards the finish. Ar 7 Ap 4 Fl 7 P 4 Ov 14 = 3.6
