Day #254 – Pyramid Audacious Apricot Ale

September 12, 2011

Went for a run tonight for the first time in a LONG time. 3 miles; felt great! Time to reward myself with a beer? Survey says yes.

Pyramid Audacious Apricot Ale

Pyramid Brewing Company is based out of Seattle, Washington. This is a fruit beer at 5.1% ABV. The apricot fruit is added with a wheat beer to create this, which by the way is one of Pyramids top sellers. There has to be a reason for that….let’s find out.

This beer pours a hazy golden orange color with a tall white head. The head response is pretty quick so be careful when pouring this one. The haziness obviously comes from this beer being unfiltered.

The aroma is pretty sweet right off the bat. It has a tall fruity nose, which I would say smells of apricots. It’s been awhile since I’ve had one but if memory serves well it is authentic. There is plenty of wheat grain and spices in the aroma as well. Pretty nice.

Flavor is sweet, fruity and BIG apricot! Wow there’s the taste I remember. Slightly tart from the fruit and a nice wheat backbone. Finishes sweet with a touch of spice. Quite good actually!
