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.

A lot of hippies like this beer because it comes from vermont. Get over it. This stuff is horrible, and thats coming from a heavy beast ice drinker. It tastes like it was filtered through some dudes socks after he ran the boston marathon. There are just too many flavors present, and some of those just should not go together.

Eventhough my rating is not glowing, I think this is worth a try. I am not a big fan of fruit beers, but this is an interesting one. It is not overly artificial tasting. I think if they used more hops (for both bittering and aroma) this could be good.

On of the few "fruity" beers that I've ever tasted that I actually like. The apricot essence is subdued enough as not to overpower.

Very fruity. Other reviewers says it's apricot, so I'll go along with that but the aroma and flavor are more of a generic fruitiness. Mouthfeel is sweet and a touch too watery. Best described as drinkable and interesting but not distinguished.

Mysterious indeed. Has a unique fruity part too it, unlike most any other. Very refreshing, not too heavy at all. The aroma is stupendous, giving off a very sweet scent.

I love this beer!! A summer favorite if I lived on the East Coast. It blows the pants off any apricot brew I have tasted. It is a perfect blend of hop and apricot AND its above 5%. A bit yeasty and stronger fruit than malt.

Pours a transparent golden hue with a medium sized head and plenty of carbonation. The aroma is that of a freshly opened jar of preserved apricots. Thin bodied consistency with a notable acidic bite upon entering the mouth. The flavor is not as sweet as expected and is dominated by sour apricot taste. Leaves a bitter, hoppy, aftertaste (much hoppier than expected). This beer is certainly different and quite refreshing on hot summer days. However, it lacks the complexity of a top notch brew.

Fruity taste, very nice plate to it. A very interesting ale. Crisp finish. Good stuff.

This is an awesome brew. It is clean on the palate and has a very subtle hint of apricot. It is ultra smooth and is one of my favorite beers that is remotely east to find.
