I just tried this for the first time and boy does it suck. I'm regretting not choosing Newcastle or the random Nut Brown I saw at the gas station here in BFE, WV.

I saw Pale ale so I figured I was good to go. Popped one open and almost gagged. Freakin apricot? Ugh.

where are you in relation to Moundsville, wv?
incidentally, I Almost got that one today too, but SWMBO wanted to have a beer too- so I went with Brooklyns' summer ale. Guess I'm glad I didnt go there.

The first time I had it I didn't realize it was apricot flavored and the sweetness really put me off. I didn't even finish the bottle I opened. I have been thinking about trying it again now that I know what is up but I still don't think I will enjoy it much.

I always taste cereal when I drink that beer. It's not so bad when you aren't stranded in WV.

#9 is my favorite beer with fruit in it. If I wanted a normal beer I would be pissed off too drinking it. If you go in with the right mindset it is pretty good. Way better than that offal Festina Peche that DFH makes.

I've had better fruit beers, but I agree - Festina Peche does indeed suck.

+1 the few times I've had it I really enjoyed it, but then I was forewarned that it was apricot.

You know, I *really* liked Festina Peche, it's one of my favorite DFH brews. It's a girly-beer, but very tart and refreshing. Hippie brought a bottle down to a Yankee Ingenuity get-together, it was really nice after standing around a burner all day.

#9's got a very artificial taste to it; really extract-ey.

Huh. I never knew what #9 was supposed to be because they don't have a single word of description on their damn labels! I do like it though.

However, I'm boycotting Magic Hat beers. I bought the Mardi Gras case, and the expiration date on JUST the Circus Boy Crappy Hefeweizen was about a year ago. The expiration dates on the other beers were fine. MEANING that Magic Hat purposefully put some expired beer in that case to get rid of it - it's not like the case had been sitting at Kroger too long or something because only some of them were expired. I was p!ssed.

And I still don't know what to do with that Circus Boy crap, because I don't even like it when it's NOT expired.
