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.

Supplied by Magic Hat. Gotta love cans.

Nice light orange in color with a white head that reduces to a thin layer in my glass.

Fruity aroma of apricots.

Light fruity flavor with a crisp note and a taste of biscuit.

Creamy body is quite nice.

Overall I don't really see any difference from the bottle. This is still one of the best fruit beers and perhaps a nice gateway beer for those new to craft.
