BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Magic Hat Brewing Company
Vermont, United States
magichat.net

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Ordered at The Quarry in Tuchakoe, NY. Poured golden to light copper color with a 3/4 inch head that dissipated fairly quickly leaving significant lacing. Nose: just a hint of apricot/pear; palate: like a lager, but again with fruity notes, especially on the back end of swallowing. Light body and mouthfeel. Refreshing, if not very complex. Probably good for the beach.

I drank it from the bottle. It tasted like if you mixed a pale ale with that lavender scented toilet paper that I bought by accident once before I knew it existed and I thought it was just regular angel soft.
