Magic Hat Brewing Company
Vermont, United States

Style: Fruit and Field Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

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.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin layer of bubbles. Smells of wheat and floral hops. Light feel. Tastes like grass with some apricot and a touch of floral hops. Dry finish. Pretty much agree with the other reviews, this one was innovative when it came out but pales in comparison to the offerings today.

One of my all time favorites. Its got a hint of apricot sweetness, but is perfectly balanced with mild hops. I could drink this all day (indeed I have). Its a must try for everyone. Enjoy!

There are some light fruit notes & it is not too hoppy like an IPA. It's lacking in taste & the body is quite thin. There is nothing really that stands out from this beer but it's still worth a try. I highly recommend it to people that are newbies to craft beer. I am going to assume that they add some actual fruit or at least fruit flavoring to make this beer like some apricots or peaches, but I could be wrong about that assumption. Cheers! C
