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 thereís never been anything else quite like it. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting English yeast.

Refreshing slightly fruity aroma. Not quite pale ale indeed. Slightly over carbonated though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not quite Pale, not quite good, not quite sure why itís in the fruit beer category.

Cajun (289) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle - Pours medium amber, orange tint. Fruity nose with some cereal and spice like cloves/ginger. Flavor of bread, citrus, ripened melon, plum... lemon. Hop finish, and dry finish.

Lemke10 (962) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2016
This pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a slight white head. The aroma is weak with a touch of wheat and citrus. The taste is light, thin, but a bitterness of apricot fruit. This might have some potential if they got rid of the twang taste it has but this is their flagship beer after all. Not quite the pale ale flavor you would expect to find.

Fruity on the nose, apricot is what comes through heavily. I generally don't like the fruity beers a lot, but this one is quite well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wombat23 (516) - Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours golden with an orange tint and a white head. Aroma of apricot. Taste is artificial apricot and watery lager. Yuck.

darbeer75 (391) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Aroma: very fruity, apple juice like; Appearance: dark golden with thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: odd combination of peach or apricot with bitter, unpleasant finish; Palate: light bodied with short finish; Overall: not good; would not buy again.

Chalumeaux (1008) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Poured from tap dark amber with minimal head. Aromas of apricot citrus and perfume. Taste is bitter medicinal not all that great.

Dal9000 (477) - Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Pours burnt Amber with no head. Immediate taste of ripe apricots and malt. Slight slight sweetness that lingers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Tranquillity (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2016
Draft. Looks like a lager, almost no head. The aroma is extremely strong, like perfume, and the taste is also extreme but not necessarily in a good way.

ffbot (325) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 24, 2016
Odd that this doesnít have too high a rating, I liked it. good presence of hots and other tastes to it, I didnít know what this was cause it says itís an IPA and it is not. So itís "almost a pale ale" but to me it taste like a small twist on an old classic. Which, since ipaís can tend to be similar, it nice
