Poured into a pint glass with almost a finger of head on a hazy, orange colored body. The aroma is almost all apricot; a fresh ripe apricot. Really nice. The taste has banana and lemon with apricot taking the lead. Good balance for a fruit beer. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. For its style, I love it. Great on a warm, yard work day.

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.

WTFIT. Really good beer that tastes like chewing on a apricot. Refreshing, summery, fruity, wonderful. Tastes like a nice warm summer day, sunning with the shades on. Maybe girly, tastes great to this macho man.

AbbeyRoade (437) - Missouri, USA - FEB 22, 2015
For some reason the alcohol flavor overwhelmed what could have been a nice apricot fruit ale. Nice apricot flavor even though I’m 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.

"very refreshing beer in the summer, wouldn’t touch it in the winter. pretty close to their heffe, replacing a little of the wheat body with a sweet apricot chaser. not too subtle or overdone. a little thin on tap."

small frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. clear sparkling average dark yellow body. aroma: peach jelly. if: moderate sweet. ff: moderate sweet light acidic very light bitter; average duration. palate: light body, watery texture, lively carbonation, light astringent finish. Sabor semelhante ao aroma, lembrando gelatina de pessego e não damasco. Refrescante. Sabor bem artificial. Não parece ser feita com trigo. Excelente drinkability. Ligeira adstringência final balanceia bem o conjunto e parece ser o único traço de damasco na cerveja. 8 s
