Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 06-09-1998

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.

33cl bottle. No freshness date in spite of promises on the label.

A: Clear deep gold, minimal lacing and v. small head.

S: Smells of overripe fruit gone a bit bad with some butter.

T: The fruit is overwhelming. Some background maltiness, the wheat does show when you know it is there but the main flavor is an overpowering slightly artificial funky fruit.

M: Dry and crisp with medium carbonation. Fresh and drinkable.

A - Does dark yellow make sense? Maybe light orange? Either way it is mostly clear with a little cloudiness with a nearly nonexistent head.

S -- Sweet with more maltiness coming through than fruit or hop.

T -- Pleasant touch of bitterness and nice amount of apricot. Finish is a little bitter but it also leaves behind a decent amount of sweetness.

M -- Other than what I said above, it is a touch oily and medium bodied despite the level of carbonation.

O -- Good offering as a draft stand by. It has a good solid taste and isn't too threatening. I'd love to pair this with Thai.
