Notes/Commercial Description:
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 sort of dry, crisp, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there's never been anything else quite like it.

Had this one many years ago on a visit to Vermont. Can finally get it in PA and was looking forward to trying it again. Nice golden/amber color but really lacking for any kind of head or lacing. Smell is full of appricot that really drowns out much of anything else but is nice and inviting. Taste is fruity up front with a wheat malt background that turns into a dry finish with no real aftertaste. A nice change of pace beer that is worth a try.

This has always been a favorite since my college days (whenever I had enough money to afford it). Love the sweet, fruity smell you get (its not over powering though) and its smooth going down (not a lot of bit). Always a fall back beer for me, if nothing else catches my attention.
