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.

Interesting... an ale described as a mystery beer? I tasted a fruity wheat beer more than an ale but it did have some characteristics of an ale. I believe Magic Hat collaborated a fruity wheat beer with an ale and this is what you get. A beer that makes you wonder if you’re drinking an ale or a wheat. I tasted Apricot and Peach flavors.

The worst beer I have ever tasted or smelled. It literally made me sick and I barely finished one bottle.

12oz bottle at home. Clear golden pour with a fizzy, fading white head. Sweet fruit, mild maltiness, some yeast notes. Light body, smooth finish. OK.

Grumbo (3756) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2017
Bottle from New Beer Distributors, New York. Pours amber with a short lasting off-white head. Aroma of apricot, grain, yeast, light caramel, fruit and veg. Medium sweetness, moderate bitterness. Light to medium body, slight oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is slightly dry.

AleRider78 (1411) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
Pours a pretty average amount of foamy head and has a golden amber appearance. Nice soapy lace. Has tropical like fruity aromas, mangos and apricots. Flavours are very fruity, some floral hops and grainy malts. The apricot comes through almost straight away. A little bit of tartiness and hints of bready malts as well. Fairly excessive carbonation. Mouthcoating sensation. Full bodied mouthfeel. Pretty good.

PhillyCraft (7716) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2017
Many bottles and drafts over the years unfortunately. Pours a hazy golden with one finger white head. Notes of caramel malt, sweet candy orange, artificial apricot, and pears. Pretty sweet and gross.

A bold introduction followed by a surprisingly soft hearty wheaty aftertaste, despite a hint of delicate hops ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palate might be skewed cause of the head and humidity, but this is a tasty beer at Hollywood studios at Disney

Fisler (654) - Bamberg, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2017
Gold, gefiltert, schöne Perligkeit, ordentlicher Schaum. In der Nase ungewöhnlich würzig, keine Ahnung was genau ich da rieche. Im Trunk limonadig, Erdbeeren, mittig Malz, fruchtig, hinten bitter. Nicht schlecht - sehr unkonventionell.

pours clear light golden amber. the flavor is light and earthy. Its really hard to place any one flavor here. There is lingering wheat aftertaste, almost grainy. Its pretty well balanced without being malty at all. The sweetness comes from something else. since its such a big secret and I don’t believe in secret recipes- I’m going to call it flavorful piss water

Bottle from somewhere into a pint. Didn’t really do a lot for me. Aroma has some apricot, which was hard to detect.
