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.

Apricot was too overpowering for me here. It smelled good, but the easiest way to explain it was a strong overtone of apricot, almost started like juice, then tasted of a beer with nothing special to offer, then after i swallowed i forgot what the beer tasted like because the apricot took over once yet again.

This beer is great.When I took my first taste of this I thought good-nothing special.Then the fruity taste came in on the end and it became my favorite beer.

Lots of flavor. Hops did not over power the fruit. Would not want to drink several in a row.

Very fruity aroma....very interesting. Pours clear amber, with a light head. Almost too sweet...but addictive. Lots of fruit flavor....almost beers equivalent of Juicy Fruit gum. Clean on the palate. Not an everyday beer, but unique.

Since I live in Florida i have not been able to try many Magic Hat beers but when vactioning in Virginia i had the oppurtunity to try this one. This tops my list of fruit tasting beers with the hint of apricot. Great thirst quencher and perfect for after dinner. I just wish i could get my hands on some since i only got to try it once!! Is there anyone who has access to this willing to do a trade???

Quite fruity, nectar taste. Overall, not too spectacular, but certainly different from other beers.

i am not a fan or fruity beers so this one was not up my alley, very aromatic with lots of flavor but not to my liking

Weird aroma and taste. I wasn’t a big fan. From the bottle. Won’t have it again.
