The first pour gives off a mild apricot smell. The taste has a hit of apricot and other fruits (orange slightly). I love the taste of this beer in the summer. It has a medium body but a nice mild taste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden orange with a thin white head. Aroma is light with fruit and malt. Drinks fairly smooth with notes of orange, malt, bit of hops, and sugar. Kind of interesting, seems to change with each sip. Not that exciting though. This is my first beer from Magic Hat and really not that impressed. An OK session beer.

[Tap, February 2007] Hazy yellow pour with small head. Aroma is floral. Flavor is heavily floral, very slight citrus. Altogether unrefined taste. Finish is bitter but not so much in the hop sense.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Nice white head, thin lacing, nice amber color. Smells like pumpkin or some other kind of squash (zucchini?). Tastes and feels like an ESB made with tomato juice and zucchini skin, that somebody filtered through a cardboard box of Wheaties. Instantly disappearing hopping. Thin carbonation. Itís weird but not awful.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, poured into 10 oz. footed Pilsener.
Aroma - definite apricot aroma, layered with a little bit of grassy hops.
Appearance - wheat beer appearance. Orangish-brown, with a typical yeasty haze.
Taste - Some apricot flavor, but not as pleasing as the Pyramid Apricot Ale. Hops are more noticeable than on most fruit beers, which is a welcome distraction.
Palate - Carbonation a slight bit less lively than I would have liked or anticipated. Somewhat oily texture, with medium-light body. Abrupt finish.
Overall - an unoffensive beer. I probably would have really liked this and been very happy with it had I not just had the excellent Pyramid Apricot. Compared to that - I canít get extraordinarily excited about this beer. But - for what it is, enjoyable. I purchased a variety pack that had four different beers - #9, Blind Faith IPA, and two absolutely wretched beers. This was my favorite of the lot.

As wierd as it sounds it falls between a IPA and a Pilsner, with a slightly fruity twist. This beer is delightful on the taste buds even though it may have a bit too much going on. Yeasty, hoppy, and thick lacing. It has it all and pulls it off well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, 12 pack...Pours reddish orange, thin head, dispersing quickly. Aroma is fruity, flowery, slightly hoppy. It is a one of kind beer, thatís for sure. If you like an ale with some fruity tang, than I recommend it. The taste, although a tad on the watery side, is interesting enough to hold it together from the start. It is smooth. Havenít really been able to nail down the type of fruit (rasberry banana orange grapefruit blueberry??). Maybe the 9 is for the number of fruits. Or the types of hops??? Or the # of times I have wondered what the meaning of life is when I am taking a dump and the power goes out????
