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.

A great beer brought back from Vermont for me. Nice peachy color, light, but full of flavor.

Huh? Huh? This beer is weird and I don’t think I like it. The taste is very fruity. Peach, maybe? Other folks have suggested apricot. either way, this is probably an acquired taste that I have no interest in developing.

Aroma was nothing too special, other than a bit of apricot in there. The pour was again not too special. A golden orange slightly cloudy brew. The flavor was refreshing and delicious. A slightly sweet apricot that simply put blended perfectly with the...well... beer flavoring. I don’t think of this as a fruity beer, but more that the apricot makes the beer taste like what I’ve always wanted plain lagers or ales to taste like. I don’t care if that makes sense, cause after this I’m floating on cloud... well you can probably guess.

A bit of fruit taste in this slightly hoppy beer. Not bad at all. cereal, citrus notes.

Had this beer while outside at a BBQ. That being said it is a pretty decent summer beer. Light gold color with light hops flavor. Notes of citrus and apricot. Nothing special, but you could do worse.

I used to like #9 a lot more than I do now. The smooth apricot flavor is still nice, but doesnt do it for me like it used to.

On tap at Winslow’s Tavern, Greenville, NC Fruity taste but rather smooth; understated.

Tried this beer in a little Irish Pub just outside of Time Square. I have to say, this discovery was one of the hilights of my trip. If this is a fruit beer, it’s well concealed inside a pale ale. Brilliant aroma with a delicate assorted fruit aftertaste. Must have more!

Not a stong fruity taste. very refreshing especially when it is 95 degrees outside in the shade.
