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.

paiste2002 (185) - Saugus, California, USA - SEP 27, 2009
22oz bottle pours a hazy copper color with a nice white head that left some very nice lace behind. Aroma is huge fig, malt and spice. Flavor is malt up front, fig, raisin, honey and some vanilla. finish is spicy, figs and biscuit. Kind of reminds me of a fig newton. Nice beer, I look forward to trying more from this brewery.

elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden amber, almost the color of natural honey. Practically no head, but a trace amount of lacing remains throughout. A restrained aroma mainly of stone fruit. Taste is more complex. Sweetness dominates, with stone fruit (cherry and fig) leading the way, followed by alcohol (brandy). Tastes of brown sugar and oak are also noticeable. Mouthfeel is watery, but slightly prickly. In sum, a fine beer, but one that almost tastes more like a scotch ale than the "Christmastime" dark ale that I had expected. Worth a try if you favor boozy, fruity beers.
