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.

bhensonb (14172) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Reddish copper color with a decent beige/tan head. Aroma is mostly a warm lightly roasted caramel. Near full bodied with foamy carbonation. Flavor is indeed rather figgy, and the cinnamon is detectable. Quite different. Very interesting. Finishes fruity, herby/spicey and approaching dryness. Unusual flavor aspects waft across the palate. You should definitely try this one.

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2010
633 mL bottle from Bruisin Ales in Asheville, opened to celebrate my acquisition of a new car. Rated 5/31/10. Pours a hazy reddish color with a medium sized creamy offwhite head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma is nutty and malty with notes of figs, dates, leafy hops, cinnamon and clove. The taste is lightly tart fig and other fruity notes, cinnamon with complements brown sugary malt notes, nutty notes and a citrus and leafy hop finish. Medium-full bodied, smooth and fairly bitter in the finish. Another good effort from a brewery that I’ve enjoyed a lot.
