COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
6 Geese-A-Laying is the 6th beer in our "12 Days of Christmas" series and is a return to the more classic dark and toasty winter ale, following the appropriately blonde 5 Golden Rings. Brewed with cape gooseberries, this malty ale displays notes of plums, dark cherry and bright, citrus-like flavors from the namesake berries. Delicious right now, but suitable for aging up to 6 years, upon the release of 12 Drummers Drumming.

Got for a Christmas gift 2013. Tasty, but a bit heavy. Did well once warmed up a bit. Wish I kept a bottle to age.

The aroma is very boozy with fruit, malt, and yeast. The appearance is amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a well made season beer.

Lots of flavor. The flavor is has a near perfect combo of malt and dark berries. The beer is dark and fruity but not tart. It's pack a punch with every sip. This a winner ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Bailey’s, pours a dark orangey amber with medium beige head. Aroma brings out hazelnuts and some dark fruity notes. Flavour is similar, bringing out toasted hazelnuts, dry caramel, and some fruitiness. This sixth version of the series is loads better than fifth, but still not very sophisticated. Decent for the Bruery, but nothing special.

Dark amber color, slightly cloudy, with small head and no lacing. Aroma and flavor are very spicy with nice malts, slight boozyness, and hints of deep fruits. Pretty good overall.

Nickls (2165) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Tap. Light tan head, murky reddish brown. Slightly sweet malt, touch of dark fruits, some candy sugar, and not terribly overwhelming. Fairly sweet, dark fruits, and finishes sweet. Medium body.

Pours hazy light brown. Nose is distinctly Belgian yeast, dark fruits, cherry. Taste is complex. Notes of berries, yeast, spice kick, little boozy, honey sweetness. Moderately thick mouthfeel, almost syrupy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Palm Tavern. Deep amber with a medium off-white topper. Aroma is boozy and sweet with bananas, yeast, bready malt, spices, brown sugar and dark fruits. Taste is sweet with cinnamon, ripe fruit, banana, toffee and candi sugar. Rather nice.

Draft at Sweetgrass Dairy. Muddy orange sewer water pour with a frothy white head. Phenolic, sweet Belgian yeast and fruitiness. Flavor is similar, very sticky and sweet. Blah, kind of a muddled mess.
