When I bought, drank and reviewed #9 I actually thought it was a pale ale - just a very fruity one! Some of my marks have been upgraded after noticing its actually categorized as a fruit beer, which is typically a style I find dodgy at best. This beer is a keeper however.
It pours with a pleasing, clear orange colour with a white head. The head recedes to a ring of foam and leaves some lacing behind. The smell is huge citrus fruits. Oranges and tangerines galore. I found that the taste has them all over again, mixed with some sweetness and very nice dry finish. Remarkable balance and the taste kept me coming back to this beer time and time again while sailing for a week in the Chesapeake bay. The mouthfeel is remarkably refreshing for a fruit beer being both light and crispy. Perfect after a long day on the water.
#9.. the best fruit beer I've tried to date. Keep an open mind and give it a shot.
