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.

phaleslu (7545) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! He said this one was a couple years old. Pours a semi-cloudy orange with a finger of off-white head. Notes of figs (the golden kind), peppery spice, caramel and amber and toasted malts, sugars, earth, straw - didnít really get any cinnamon in here, but then again Iím not sure if "cinnamon twigs" are something else altogether. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Interesting beer. Certainly one of a kind.

slowrunner77 (7100) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2014
"a decent hoppy spiced ale that was enjoyable enough. even a little unique. but in the end the flavors were a bit muddled and the beer lacked focus. iíd drink it again, but wouldnít pay the premium price on another bottle."

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is sweet fruity, cinnamon, figs and dates and almost a touch oxidized. The flavor is more sweet fruit centered around figs, some cinnamon, honey with mild bitterness to the finish.
