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

man I wish Pyramid decided to mass circulate their Honey Bock instead of this second rate fruit phoney ale.

This is an above-average fruit beer, nice for the summer. The pour is cloudy orange-gold, with a slight white head that is quickly gone, no lacing. Aroma of apricots, wheat, banana, slight clove. Itís a little on the sweet side but overall it has good balance, not too heavy on the apricot, still tastes like a wheat ale. The quality of the apricots must be high because it has a rich, authentic apricot flavor. I think it is better with some of the yeast from the bottom poured into the glass to give it a more diverse flavor profile. Light to medium body, slick and creamy texture, medium carb., refreshing finish. It is even good straight from the bottle if you donít have a glass on hand.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of apricot jam and wheat. Cloudy gold with white head. Apricot flavor goes well with the dry wheat. Pretty good summer drink.

Arpicot syrup-y aroma. Same semi-artificial apricot flavor, with a sweet, caramel, light grainy malt flavor. Kind of an alco-pop; Not bad, though.

12 oz bottle from notes. Pours a hazy golden/light amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have apricots, wheat malts, some creaminess to it, the apricots have a mildly tart character to the flavor. Nothing is bad with this, but I wouldnít revisit this either.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a small, short lived white head. Aroma of apricot, caramel and wheat. Sweet flavour of apricot and wheat with a dry, citric finish. Light body, watery texture and soft carbonation.

Reviewed from notes. I had this in a pint glass every time Iíve had it. The appearance was a filtered looking orange to brown in color with a one finger white foamy head that lasts for about a minute and delicately dies into the body. The lacing is light but its there trying to spiderweb but slides for the most part. The smell was apricot and delicately backed up by some wheatiness to it. The taste was apricot sweet with the wheat coming back to assist in the taste. There is an apricot aftertaste and a dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a medium and was fairly sessionable. The carbonation seemed okay for the style and for me. Overall, Iím pretty sure Pyramid did what they wanted to as far as making an Apricot Ale. Try it if you see it, however, Iíve had this with plain cheesecake once and that was a stellar dessert, though I was extremely full afterwards.

On tap at the Yard House, Houston. An unclear orange golden beer with just about no head. Thereís lots of canned peaches on the nose, not so much apricots I think. Orange peel hints too. Tasteful apricot candy flavor with some canned peaches and orange peel. Medium body and a bit hard carbonation, quite dry. Peaches and syrup finish, still far from sweet and sticky. Sort of quenching this one, but also rather boring. 140516

12 oz bottle. Hazy golden pour with an off white head. Nice apricot aroma and nice apricot flavor. Not overpowering with just the right amount of apricot. One of the better beers I have had this month!

Palate affected by head cold, but mostly unimpressed with this. Faint fruit flavor, weak body, dull appearance. not much going on here.
