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.

25.4 oz bottle. Deep, but clear, amber brown with a smooth beige head. Nose is brown bread, wood and berries; slightly tart. Thick and chewy with a fermented fruit tang and airy heat. Taste is yeast, burnt maple, butterscotch and gooseberry adding the perfect touch of sour to balance the yeast and sticky sweetness. A massive fireside sipper and perhaps my favorite of the series.

Really enjoyed this Belgium, to me brings in what a Belgium should be, strong, smooth, the ABV does not come through and it full of flavor.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
2013-01-29. Brown body with a modest beige head and lace. Aroma is sugary and alcoholic, the flavour is similar. Sweet sugary malt core, fruity and moderately alcoholic throughout. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Bit simple and the booze is prominent but it is enjoyable nonetheless. Bottle shared by mds

Braudog (5584) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle. An interesting berry-tinged brown pour with a thin but blanketing top. The aroma is quite subtle, vaguely sweet and floral. This drinks with a artistically assembled blend of flavors .. there’s definitely a wild berry buzz as the forefront, but a wild, farmhouse funk clings to the final bit. Quite yummy.

Bamberg Bash Day 2. Cafe Abseits tasting. Clear amber beer, little bubbly pale tan head. Palate is light and dry. Little alcohol dryness. Sweetish malt with a little caramel and a little spice. Not getting much gooseberry at all. Spicy dry finish. It’s okay but not one of Bruery’s better efforts.

On draft at the brewery. Pours a murky reddish brown, with an off white head. Dark fruits, orange peel, prune, date, booze, Belgian spice, and berry. Quite sweet and heavy. Ok.
