#9

If you take this beer for what it is – a fruity extravaganza – and don’t ask it to be what it’s not – a standard pale ale – then you are likely to be very happy with it.

To me, the apricot thing is not that strong. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an incredibly fruity beer, but there are many different fruit ester tastes present. I was expecting that, but what I was not expecting was such a delightful creaminess, a super drinkability and a lovely mouthfeel. Leaving the fruit to one side for a moment, those qualities in this beer are exceptional, regardless of the style.

Yes, the fruit IS dominating, and if you generally dislike fruit beers I suspect you’ll hate #9, but with it comes a lovely deep orangey color, a thick satisfying mouthfeel, lovely carbonation and a super-refreshing experience.

I would strongly advise you to try it, even if you think it will not be to your liking. Although not a crossover beer as such, this is a beer that has the ability to really open peoples eyes to a different, and perhaps new, experience.
