The folks at the Magic Hat Brewing Co. website tell us that…

SOUR #9 FOUDRE AGED SOUR ALE WITH APRICOTS

“Sour #9 is a perfect, pucker-inducing balance of both breweries. Gentle sour apple aromas lead the way into stone fruit, citrus, and red currant before a taste bud-clenching sourness takes hold, thereby revealing the classic, subtly sweet mysteries of #9.”

BREWBOUND Press released on 6 June 2019

“This lip-smacking, palate-puckering iteration of our Not Quite Pale Ale was aged for 9 months in one of Hermit Thrush’s centuries-old foudres, along with fresh apricots. The result is an ale with gentle sour apple aromas leading into stone fruit, citrus, and red currant before a taste bud-clenching sourness takes hold, thereby revealing the classic, subtly sweet mysteries of #9.”
