FRUIT BEER

Pyramid Apricot Ale

Apricot is a flavor often associated with the warm days of summer, but Pyramid Apricot Ale can be enjoyed year-round. This aromatic unfiltered fruit beer has a distinctive aroma of fresh apricot, and is made with 50 per cent 2 Row Pale Barley and 50 per cent Malted Wheat, resulting in a smooth and malty wheat finish. The use of the assertive Nugget hops allows for a hoppy character and a proper balance between bitter and sweet. Capturing the essence of apricot, this highly carbonated brew is refreshing and very flavorful. While distinctively fruity, it's not overbearing. It has been a standard for the Pyramid brewery, the pioneers of wheat beers, since it was first introduced in 1994. This brew will make a good companion for appetizers, salads and desserts.

Price: $1.40 (12 oz.)
