Lighter in color. Has a nice refreshing apricot taste. Great for something light during a hot day.

There’s a whole lot of apricot, that’s for sure. Taste is also a bit tart, though, and I’m not sure I’m 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, doesn’t 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 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.
