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.

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.

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.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2013
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.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle:   Deep caramel, reddish hued, thin to moderate frothy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Rich malty and biscuity nose, bready, faint shrub type berries.   Strong shrub like berries on the tongue, assertive biscuit, tart, mild sweetness... with even more biscuity notes on the backside.   Not so sure about this one.   Needs more caramel malt sweetness to balance it out.   Sticky overall, with a moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Feels uber shrubby, and uber biscuity.   This one was a weird one, and on par with all their xmas releases with the exception of PiaPT, that one was better than all the rest.

Tmoney99 (12408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle. Poured hazy dark amber with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex tart berry aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer.

Pour on tap at Hops and Pie, dark reddish brown pour with white head, aroma brought notes of dark cherry, dark fruit, hints of earth, slight nutty note into caramel, toffee in there, touch of citrus. Taste is a mix of dark cherry, berry, hints of dark fruit, slight caramel, toffee, dark sugars, into a bit of spice, finishing bitter, dry.
