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.

Nice fruity smell to it, pours gold. Had the sweet and sour taste of apricot. Nice and smooth, felt good, nice beer,

This is an interesting brew. I am not a big fan of fruit beers and having said that, this is probably my most favorite. The fruit flavor is well balanced and not sickly sweet. Great label and marketing.

I love this beer!! A summer favorite if I lived on the East Coast. It blows the pants off any apricot brew I have tasted. It is a perfect blend of hop and apricot AND it’s above 5%. A bit yeasty and stronger fruit than malt.

Love the light, refreshing wheat beerish quality. Good citric palate cleansing hops. Fruit is everywhere but not overpowering or sticky. The citric elements brighten the flavor so it takes a bit like a nectarine. Straight up and good with lighter fare and heavier dishes that can use a palate cleanser.

Had it on draft at pizzario uno’s. Tasted pretty good. A little dark with a sweet aftertaste. Overall a good beer would have it again.

Bottled. Cool label, mysteroius name hyped brew; for all that I couldn’t say that I found anything overly impressive. Subtle apricot and other essence though nothing too special.

i have heard only good things about this brewer before i had ever found it, and this was the first flavore i tried. the apricot wasnt overwhelming, as in other fruit beers ive had. definetly will pick this one up again.

not much of an aroma, the flavor is slightly sour, there’s nothing special with this beer

I have had this in the past on tap, however the rating was performed on a bottle. Nice pour with golden color. Very dissapointing aroma. Smelled somewhat like yeast, not pleasent. Fruity taste with citrousy overtone. Was pretty lame.
