UPDATED: AUG 4, 2003 A distinctively apricot beer that may suffice as a novelty, but cannot be sustained over a six pack. It has a flavored-water consistency and a flat taste. Rerated: The aroma is extraordinary and overall this is better than I originally credited it. Still the flavor is an unremarkable apricot water. This is simply an okay fruit beer.

Most beers that advertise fruits have only a hint of fruit flavor but this has a distinctive apricot taste to it. I like it and your woman will too.

Not hint of malt, no hint of hops, just lots of apricot flavor. This is a tasty libation for a flavored beer if youíre into that sort of thing. I would imagine this sells best to young women. Itís an interesting brew to be enjoyed once in a while.

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.
