4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
An instant favorite. I was so confused and delighted by the apple-orange aftertaste while I was drinking it I had to keep going back for more.

Tap. gold color, white head. Nice fruity aroma, but the apricot flavor is a bit too strong for my liking. Iíll save that sort of intensity for fruit tarts and jams. Apricot aftertaste makes me yearn for a shot of Jameson afterwards, which may not be a bad thing depending on the setting. Give this to a date who ’doesn’t want to drink’ heavy beers.

Magic Hat #9 is good for sitting at a bar with some good people or in the backyard having a barbecue. Itís not the best beer in the world, but itís tasty and refreshing. Pours orange, aromas of apricot and malts, subtle apricot flavor and a hint of bitter on the finish. I wouldnít go out of my way to find it, but would definitely drink it it was available.
Last had it on tap at Big City in Allston, MA.

I smelled and tasted apricot. A very refreshing beer to say the least. Nothing amazing, but good.

Purchaed a keg of this. My wife loved it and so did her friends. I thought is was okay. The mild apricot flavor is not really my thing. It is very refreshing and is a well made beer for itís style. Nice head and aroma.

Beautiful lacy head. Aroma: Apricot-peach mixed with something not so nice. Something about the smell, itís like cooked meat. Taste: apricot, peach, grapefruit and just a touch sour. Aftertaste lightly lingers.
Now 1/4 gone... Canít get myself to finish it ... Too many great beers out there to be consuming this ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I enjoy fruit beers, but the flavor of this one didnít adequately mask the medium-high alcohol content. Thereís certainly a bet of ethanol aftertaste, which is a drawback for me. Drinking beer shouldnít at all taste like doing shots in my book.

Color is murky gold, nose is very strong, flavor is distinctive, fruity essence with a distinct flavor, finish is much more subtle than taste for a nice well rounded beer.

Cute packinging hides a really shitty beer. I am baffled by the positive reviews. A bunch of beer snobs?

Very good ale with formidable flavor on its own. The hints of apricot do not interfere with the ale flavor. Very smooth taste and finish. Has a much thicker body than Pyramid Apricot - a comparable, yet inferior beer. Great packaging adds to overall feel.
