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.

This "fruit beer," which it is not truely at all, is rather lousy. In most pubs this beer is sold as a lager or a brown ale. From the moment it touches one’s tongue, an immediate spalsh of perfume is noted. The uninformed novice may understand that scent/taste to be "fruitiness." I fouthrightly disagree. The odors and flavors are much more flowery than fruity. I would imagine a better flavor could be attained from drinking old rose water from a vase. This beer leaves a soapy coating on the roof of the taster’s mouth as well. Overall, considering the pricetag on a pint of this in Philadelphia is over five dollars, this is a beer to avoid.

This is one of those beers that is kind of weird. A lot of fruit and according to the label apricot. Slightly watery but not in a bad way, refreshing. Don’t even bother if you don’t like hints of fruit.

Pours a dark golden, with an average head. Smells like a fruit basket, tastes similar. Nice balance of hops, light. Blueberries, apricot. I see where others are going with the wheat ale, but a nice summer brew.

Pretty good for a pale ale. A little bit nutty with slight hops. Good tasty pale ale that is drinkable but not piss water.

Just like the description; not sure what the overall taste is other than delish! Slightly toasty with a hint of citrus on the nose. Light orange/red color, head is there. Unusually refreashing, a medium slightly oily texture. Very enjoyable and worth searching out.

Super sweet beer, main taste of apricot and honey. thin beer with a real clean feel. Just a little too sweet for my taste though.

buerckholtz (33) - asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2007
Porus slightly hazy orange color with a quickly deminishing head. Aromas of apricot and slight citrus hop. Has a thin palate, a bit fruity, prickly carbonation "bite" has a mass produced flavor so to speak. Getting better as it warms up, more malt aromas and flavor comming through. Not bad but nothing special. Im not sure what all the hype is about.
