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.

Very light beer with taste of pear, apricot, and faint hops. Nicely carbonated. Definitely a unique brew and totally drinkable, just nothing special in my mind.

Color is a ver nice shade of gold. The smell is fruitty, apricot and perhaps some lemon. The taste likewise leans the way of fruit "apricot". Light body, very easy drinking. Very little hop presence. This is a very easy drinking beer that I intend to enjoy more of this summer as I relax on my deck.

A fine beer, but nothing to write home about. If it were the one microbrew amongst a selection of macro’s, I take it for sure. Most likely it’d be outshone by something else

I still think this is a great beer. Sure, it’s a little bland, and fruity, but it’s a nice beer to have on hand for the girls

Was very excited to try this beer, but was left disappointed. Reasonably well made with quality ingredients but there are too many competing flavors. You get fruit, grass, dark grain, sour … idk pretty much everything which I don’t prefer.

Not great for me. I tend to like fruit beers and I honestly wouldn’t have known this qualified as one if not for reading it. I could not taste nor really smell the apricot aromas that this beer is supposed to hold. That being said, it has an okay aroma and taste, nothing that really stands out.

Had no idea it was fruit until I looked up rating. Then it did give the apricot background after another taste. Good hot day beer,but not...NOT a fruit beer.

I never thought of myself as a fruit beer lover, this doesn't change my mind. Strong aroma of apricot, pours to a nice orange/tan color, little head & lacing. The first and subsequent tastes were pleasant enough, though there didn't seem to be any aftertaste. A nice fruity taste that disappeared to nothing. I miss the taste of hops, not a bad beer, but in my book, nothing to write home about.

A lot of hippies like this shit, but it's alright if you buy it too. It's a good beer just to sit and chill with, believe me, I ain't no pot smokin' hippie. Pick yourself up a sixer and drink. Peace

Definite aroma of fruit but also dry like a pale ale. I think it tastes better on tap in Vermont obviously. I bought a 9 pack and felt a little cheated when it cost as much as a 12. This is a good tasting beer that is well received at cookouts etc. Don’t hand one to a Bud drinker, you’ll find it abandoned somewhere.
