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 theres never been anything else quite like it. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting English yeast.

This is the definition of apricot flavor in beer, for those who wonder. Peachy color, clear, but the head doesnt impress. Light and drinkable but on the bland side. Delicate hops.

Slightly hazy golden orange color, small head. Aroma is sharp of apricot, some yeast and hops. Taste is bit sweet, but mostly bitter and also quite yeasty. Palate is not sticky, but more bitter.

Cloudy dark yellow coloured, small head. Strong apricot aroma, not something i really like. Luckily the apricot is not that overwhelming in flavour. Bitter, watery brew.

im not convinced about the merits of apricot in beer. this had a pretty distinct apricot aroma though not overly sweet, more like dried apricots. fortunately enough bitterness to stop it from being too sticky

My favorite summer-time beer to drink when I vist my family in New England. I just wish it was easier to find in the midwest! Number 9 is a light to medium bodied beer with strong fruit flavors, especially prune or apricot. Overall, its a nice and refreshing summer drink that wont bog you down. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Drank one of these at the Bonnaroo music festival 04. Very refreshing and tasty in the summer hear. Amazing fruit essence and an overall good product.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2004 Got this on tap in NYC and enjoyed it, hoppy and didnt think it was a fruit beer. tastes of mango, oragne and plum.a little too sweet for me to drink a bunch. Enjoyable.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2004
I like fruit beers, but I dont like apricot. The beer poured a cloudy gold producing a pale head that quickly dissolved. Mildly hoppy with flavor that hangs around after your done with it. Not bad, but not great.

I really didnt think this was a fruit beer when I drank it on tap. Light amber color with a decent white head. Actually more hops in this than I expected. Weird. Flavor was slightly fruity, very good though. Nice finish.

this is really refreshing, especiallyat an abnormaly hot campground waiting around all day for Phish to play, and the phans sure do love this one, I think its probably b/c of that tripped out label, but it may also be because of the beer, citrus is the theme of this brew, and thats not a lie because its true.
