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.

20 IBU

3.7/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Nice looking beer , dark amberish brown embodyment with foam sticking arond the ring of the glass nicely the smell is very strong on apricots and maybe a citrus kick from orange or lemon or something like that. Taste is similar to smell , very strong on the apricots and has a pretty decent hop finish , especially for a fruit beer , I enjoyed it very much , better than sam adams cranberry , and better than fuckin wild blue. mf is decent like with a medium finish. My issue is the drinkability of this beer , it's their prmier beer and it is not that drinkable to me , good luck selling lots of something thats not drinkable , the finish was too wet to be very drinkable , takes sips of this one

Serving type: on-tap

3.51/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Clear gold. one finger head dissipates quickly with mild retention. Spotty lacing.

S - Tea, malt and faint apricot.

T - Malt and yeast dominate with some bitter hops and tea flavor to finish with. The longer it sits, the more pronounced the light apricot flavor becomes.

M- Light

O - I tasted more tea than apricots. This would be a good choice where you can build your own six pack.
