4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 6-3-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a hazed yellow orange color with a tiny fizzy white head. The head fades instantly leaving only the tracest level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell- Huge apricot aroma in this one (as may be expected for an apricot ale). The apricot is rather pleasant and smells quite authentic. While dominating the smell, the apricot is joined by a light aroma of wheat as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweet apricot flavor straight up front with some hints of wheat mixed within. The wheat remains light throughout with the apricot growing even stronger and sweeter in flavor as the taste advances to the end. At the very end, a little bit of a peach flavor joins the taste as well, with the mix of apricot, peach and wheat leaving a sweet but smoother taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather low. A bit more carbonation may have suited the beer’s sweeter fruit flavors slightly better, but overall the feel was fine.
Overall – This is a brew big on apricot flavor with much less of else taking away from its center stage presence. Rather tasty and refreshing and a good go to if you feel like something apricot or fruity. Not bad.
