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

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Past the BB date, but who cares, itís not an IPA. A: Pours an apri-- Iím not going to say it. Iím just going to say it pours a golden orange color. There are a few specks of yeast sediment floating around in there, too. The head is a frothy-looking eggshell shade one fingers high. Retention is low and thereís minimal - if any - lacing left on the glass. S: Apricots aplenty. Thatís good and all, but the fact they seem a bit sweet and extract-y is a turnoff. Another turnoff: the dregs seem to have a cheesy aroma to it. íCourse, I still poured them in the glass anyways, because Iím a boss like that. T: Sweet apricots start and finish this one off. Did I mention sweet? The only thing to break up the monotony is a touch of back end tartness. On the plus side, I donít pick up much cheesiness in the flavor, so that good. I guess. M: High carbonation and an off-dry finish do an okay job of scrubbing away some of the palate sweetness. Still too sweet, but not as stupidly cloying as it could have been. Not particularly easy to drink. O: Meh. How many different ways can you say íchick beerí?

Thereís a whole lot of apricot, thatís for sure. Taste is also a bit tart, though, and Iím not sure Iím a fan of that.

Pours a hazy, cloudy golden orange color that sparkles slightly and has a small disappearing head. Smell is citrus, lemons, apricots, spices. Taste is bitter, apricot, lemon, floral and slight spice. Short taste length, doesnít stick with you, so ends on a crisp finish with a high drinkability factor. Nice!

Very good beer that is smooth with an apricot aroma and unfiltered wheat that is golden in appearance.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/26/2014. Pours hazy bright orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big apricot, peach, lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, wheat, honey, bread, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of apricot, fruity yeast, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of apricot, peach, lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, wheat, honey, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, peach, lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, wheat, honey, bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of apricot, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/fruit flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very authentic tasting fruit flavors as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a damn nice fruited wheat ale. All around great robustness and balance of apricot, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

The aroma is as if someone had sprayed it with a floral perfume right before serving it. Has an over powering floral flavor with some apricot and bitterness as a background. Would not recommend.

For some reason the alcohol flavor overwhelmed what could have been a nice apricot fruit ale. Nice apricot flavor even though Iím not too fond of fruity beers. Booze just overwhelmed.

Nice fruit beer from Pyramid. The apricot is not overpowering but is strong enough to let you know it it there. Pours like a wheat. From past tasting.

Smells of apricot and lemon zest. Appearance is a medium golden amber. Very little head and almost no retention or lacing. The taste is definitely apricot, but this isn't overpowering. The best part is the complete lack of bitterness. Which is great for a non-hophead like me. Thoroughly enjoyed.

This is a good refreshing beer. Fruity, steady and dependable in a crowd. Drank a bunch of em over the years.
