COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is a tradition in the world of ale brewing to craft celebratory holiday ales that incorporate festive spices and perhaps other special ingredients. Baird Jubilation Ale is brewed within the context of this tradition and in the spirit of joyful celebration. A hearty ale with a rich malty base and soothing alcoholic warmth (ABV 6.5%), Jubilation Ale is made luxuriant by deft additions of two wonderful ingredients: (1) fully ripened figs candied in the country kitchen of our friend, Shoko-chan, and (2) cinnamon twigs culled from a Japanese Nikki tree. A sublimely balanced interplay between sweet and spice reminiscent of the yin-yang duality of life results. The ruby-red hue and the wafting aroma of cinnamon warm the heart and furbish the soul.

TheCaptain (613) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2010
Bottle, another treat from afire thanks Waylo. Poured a hazy copper with slight tan head. Spice and vegetable with some dry sweet notes. Thin and high carbonation. Okay but maybe needed more of an alcohol boost to warm up.

larsga (7153) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 6, 2010
Medium pale beige head. Hazy amber body with floaties. Malty resiny minty aroma, very harmonic. Dry-sweetish minty oxidized malty taste with strawy soda notes. Mild mouthfeel. Fullish yet light body. Dryish peppery minty aftertaste with malty gingery notes. Nice, mild, drinkable, unusual. (0.36l bottle, Olympen, Oslo. Bottle says 2007.)

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2010
Tasting - The Wine Source. Copper, thin white head. Citric sherry and grape aromas warm to light swirls of spiced cinnamon pears. Vinous and spicy with a touch of backend cardboard throughout. Light to medium bodied, soft carboantion, spiced fruity finish. Not my cup of tea, though fresh it might change my opinion...

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2010
bottle via superdave on 1/25/2010. orange red pour... hazy with an off white head. initially, this smells very vegetal and sweet... no, it smells that way throughout... cinnamon, caramel, malt and the earthy insides of figs. the flavor matches the aroma only it is on the sweeter side of what i tend to like... add in some brown sugar, a ton of spiciness and a bitter yeasty finish to round things out. the medium body is made harsh from the spices and crisp carbonation. meh 6/4/6/3/14/3.3

lamas (1536) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 24, 2010
22 oz. bottle. Pours a murky amber color with a smallish tan head. A sweet and malty aroma that features some figs and cinnamon along with a hint of booze. Medium-bodied. The flavor starts with plenty of sweet caramel, brown sugar, figs, and dark fruits. Some biscuity qualities and an earthiness follow. A touch bittering at the end. Tongue tingling cinnamon is present throughout. Not too shabby.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Bottle from 2008. This was a really interesting beer. Copper with a khaki colored head. The smell was sweet and malty with light sour, tangy notes. The flavor was nicely balanced between the malts and slightly sour figs. I couldn’t taste any cinnamon though. Body was medium-thin with an above average amount of carbonation. Very easy for me to drink unlike a lot of beers that have spices in them and it remained interesting throughout the entire glass.

Beer5000 (5770) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2010
330 ml bottle. Hazy orange body with a fine off-white head. Aroma is fruity with some caramel and cinnamon spices. Flavor is refreshing fruity, mild malty, fine balanced bitterness, cinnamon and other spices, maybe some ginger? A nice, fruity, spicy and a bit unusually beer. Quite enjoyable.

thebeertourist (5170) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2010
2007 bottle at Olympen. Hazy copper with a healthy tan head. Tart berry aroma. In the mouth dry chocolate blends with tart berries. Overall quite dry. Medium body. Complex and somewhat surprising.
