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.

3.53/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a nice clear orange/very light copper with a decent finger of near white head that dissipates rather quickly, great lacing though.

S - Apricots, lemon zest, sweet caramel malts.

T - Caramel malt to apricot burst, mouth watering fruit flavors, a slightly dry finish. Nice fruit aftertaste.

M - Medium-lightish bodied, good carbonation, very drinkable

O - Definitely a good brew to throw back, not really big into fruity beers but this one comes across as more of a beer with some fruit flavors than just a fruit beer. A good one, liked by all
