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.

"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. id drink it again, but wouldnt pay the premium price on another bottle."

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JAN 17, 2009
633 ml bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a hazy amber color with a one finger thick light tan head. Very light lacing. Aroma is light esters (fig) and caramel malt with a hint of spice (very light cinnamon). Im not quite sure what to make of the flavor. I mainly detect some esters and caramel malt. Im not quite sure what to make of this beer. All I know is that its not worth the $12 I paid for it.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle at Hashigo Zake. Pours a beautiful radiant reddish amber, tan head.
Aroma has smooth chocolaty, fruity oddness. A big full bodied flavour, kinda of nutty with Belgian-esq flavours, wierd esters. In a good way. Spicces are minimal and no hint of the cinnamon.
Tart, bitter and fruity, interesting but not amazing.
