#9 - Magic Hat (USA - Vermont - South Burlington) 5.1%
An orange apricot gold colour in a glass. A very floral apricot flavour, sweet but not overly sweet with a nice hoppy hint in the background. Well balanced and although malty and a little bitter (especially in the aftertaste), #9 reminds me of a fruit wine, in a good way. Interesting, well balanced and refreshing, this is a very pleasant beer - perfect on this hot early Autumn day.
