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.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by Tmoney99). Looks good for the style; a cloudy brown with light beige lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast and dark fruit. Tastes like it smells, only more robust, with a somewhat tart mouthfeel. Solid beer.

Sour berry nose, some darker citrus notes, allspice. Cloudy red-brown. Sweet up front, transitioning quickly into a spicy bitterness, that again levels off into syrupy sweetness. Alcohol is very immediately present, but balanced by the acidity and sweetness. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Pretty good stuff, tho my bottle seemed a tad under carbonated. Poured it on the cold side with a smallish tan head that soon settled and no lace. Color is a somewhat hazy brown amber. Aroma is malt, fruit, citrus, orange pith. Flavor’s like nose,while not much carbonic tang, the gooseberries’ acid helps mitigate the heavy sweetness. Also present are malt, caramel. Body would’ve been great if better co2. Finish is like flavor, of average length, with strong alcohol warmth.
