Style: Fruit / Vegetable 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.

Drank from my Duvel Tulip

A - Poured honey/amber colour with a light frothy head that dissipates to a thin film rather quickly only a little lacing.

S - Very sweet apricot, fairy floss or perfume like aromas. Weird..

T - Apricots, mango, sweet sticky toffee apple and candy. Quite syrupy and difficult to consume.

M - light to medium bodied with very little carbonation

O - As a fruit beer definitely not for me this one. Very sickly to drink and I will struggle to finish. Would not recommend.

12oz bottle with no date

Straw yellow with a red tint. Small head with some staying power. Smells like hay, barley, and flowery incense. Not a great smell for a beer. Taste is hay, malt, and a weird "rose" flavor that translates into a lingering aftertaste. Not terrible, just odd, and kind of off-putting. The beer is crisp and refreshing, but has an odd waxy feel that comes with the strange aftertaste.

Unique beer that some may enjoy, but I sure didn't.
