Apricot flavor is strong, but it's more citrusy than sweet. Tastes somewhat thin, but well carbonated. 146kcal approximately at 5.1 abv. Nice drinkable beer that's pretty cheap.

Perhaps I got a bad bottle because Pyramid makes awesome beers, but this fruit beer did not settle well with me. The apricot note was there, but one- dimensional. I found this beer to be lacking in sweetness, vaguely yeasty, generally lacking in flavor, and strangely oily (I feel like my mouth is coated with vegetable oil). Perhaps my palate is off tonight, but this was surprisingly disappointing. I may give it another go in the future to confirm, because, as I mentioned, Pyramid is a great brewer. I'd say give it a shot and decide for yourself; many here in the northwest seem to love this one.

Hazy, cloudy and not very attractive hue. Frothy pour with no head. Definite fruit aroma and very dominant apricot taste. Not heavy, touch of carbonation. We got a bomber more from curiosity than anything else.

Smooth, light and refreshing. Nice wheat beer with a definite apricot flavor. Well balanced and a good summer pour.

Appearance: hazy light amber.

Smell: very much apricot aroma.

Taste: apricot is very forward but not overwhelming.

Feel: carbonation is spot on.

Overall: if you like apricots then this won't disappoint.

Hazy golden orange color. Strong and pleasant fruity apricot aroma, concordant with taste. Also floral notes and faint hop and malty flavors. Crisp/smooth feel. Overall a great, summery NW favorite!

It pours a hazy orange color with a small head and no lacing. It has the smell and taste of apricots. A sweet beer that is over carbonated but has a smooth swallow. Better out of a glass than a bottle.

Pretty good, especially if you like the fruit infused beers. This has a light color, solid aroma and that hint of apricot that is just a bit too overpowering. It is still good, but I suppose my preference is for a more subtle impact. Great summer ale.
