COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Apricot flavouring
A Beer Cloaked in Secrecy An ale whose mysterious and unusual palate will swirl across your tongue and ask more questions than it answers. A beer brewed clandestinely and given a name whose meaning is never revealed. Why #9? Why, indeed. A sort of dry, crisp, fruity, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there’s never been anything else quite like it. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting English yeast.

Yellowish, slightly cloudy appearance. Notes of cherry, and cranberry, maybe blueberry in the nose. Taste like Apricot and peach, plus some orangey note, as well. Ever so slight bitterness at the end.

#700. There is no reason I chose this for number 700, just happened to fall on that number. I wish I were able to find a more spectacular brew for 700 but I’m stuck on an Island with a shitty brew selection. Well this pours a nice copper/amber with a tall white head. Very fruity apricot aroma, thats about all i can smell, the apricot is being its stinky self. Taste starts a bit sweet and fades to light tartness. Apricots rule the flavor the whole way through this brew.Some light hops balance out the beer a bit, medium body, with a mild bitter/tart finish.

Gold pour , typical head after aggresive pour. Sweet apricot nose; hops faint. Smells like fruit. Good carbonation. Malty start, sweet wheat, apricot finish, with noticible hop character. Palate is nothing special. Not a hearty beer, yet it is not refreshing. Good festival beer, good drink all day at a cook out, or at bonnaroo.

Deep golden color out of the bottle with a thin white head. The aroma is dominated by apricot syrup. Flavors of apricot, lemon, berries and water with a honey sweetness. It is an odd beer. Why don’t they give any information on a Magic Hat label?

Bright dark gold colour with a fizzy head that dissipates to a ring. Strong bouquet of american hops and fruit: apricot, peach, strawberry. Fruity flavour with apricot and banana accentuated by citrusy hops. A slight sweetness that obviously comes from malt. Very smooth feeling with a medium body. An unplesant sourness, though. I would like this beer a lot more if it were a bit drier and the fruit came out as a refreshing tartness.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
Pours a clear golden color with yeast in suspension, which surprises me a lot, very thin white head. Interesting aroma of apricots, malt and hops. The flavor is fruity, apricots, I also feel the skin of the fruit, with hops and malt, mild bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Surprising, I thought it would be of little interest but I find it to be an interesting and easily drinkable fruit beer.

bottle...golden pour with small off white head. Fruity aroma, quite sweet. Kinda reminds me of peaches or passion fruit or something like that. Sweet fruity start, mellowing in the middle, still sweet. Malty to finish with some grassy tones. A decent fruit beer, very quaffable.

Boutip (4920) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004
Bottle: Poured orangey color ale with almost no head or carbonation. Aroma is quite weak but I can distinguish some sweet fruity flavour and some malt. Taste is almost indescribable, like a mix between some poorly grown apricot (lacking flavour and sweetness) and malt that doesn’t do any favour to this mix. Like all fruit beer, they can be a wonderful experience when correctly balanced or a complete disaster when things go wrong, such as this case was. Almost needs to wonder if this was a bad bottle.

A decent ale, pours translucent amber, like sunlight peering through clouds. Nice feel to this one, not too fizzy, very nice. Flavor is a little bland, not much to it. Towards the end of the bottle, the flavor I that was really coming through to me was rye bread.
