Best by 2/18/12.

Pours a murky orange with a 1 inch foamy off white head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. Small dots of lace slide into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, subdued apricot, and some buttery aromas. Taste is the same with the butter coming through on the finish. This beer has a light level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer. It's decent for what it is but I wouldn't get this one again most likely.

Pyramid Apricot Ale

Appearance: golden orange, large head, and very little lacing.

Smell: sweet tart, apricot, and wheat.

Taste: full ripe apricot and a wheat finish.

Mouthfeel: medium-light.

Wow. This has wonderful apricot flavor. It doesn't really feel like a wheat beer.

Served on-draught into a generic pilsner glass at a bar in Palo Alto, California. Expectations were high as I usually like apricot hefeweizens (and I've brewed a couple). Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a half finger head of fair cream and thickness, and good retention. Colour is a hazy cloudy copper-gold. Appealing.

Sm: Light citrus ester hops, with apricot and wheat. This is less pronounced and good than I remember the bottled version's aroma being.

T: Mild citrus notes. Orange and apricot. Simple wheat foundation. Decently balanced and built alright.

Mf: Sharp. Wet and smooth, but a touch too thick. Doesn't really complement the flavours.

Dr: Decent drinkability. Fair price ($4.00). Limited quality. I remember liking the bottled version a lot better; perhaps the keg lines are dirty.
