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.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2014
Bottled. A hazy red beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, over ripe fruits, and a bit of brettanomyces, leading to a dry finish.

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.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Danish tasting session
Hazy dark amber color with small sized compact head. Aroma of fruits, some smell of puke and stale water; light talc. Sweetish flavor, some fruit (fruit jam), malt, not much of the promised Belgian character (self defined Belgian style); ordinary bitterness with some wood in the end and fairly strong alcohol impression.
Confused and not much interesting concoction.

Oakes (12627) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Hazy amber-brown, bubbly head, some alcohol, yeasty taste, light phenols. The alcohol provides balance, but it’s reminding me of La Trappe Quad, but it is rough, not as refined as it needs to be.

bhensonb (11097) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Capped 750 from the Arden BevMo. Pours a hazy, very dark ruddy orange with a foamy/creamy light tan head. Lots of dark fruit in the aroma. Full bodied, or nearly. Flavor is slightly sweet dark malt with cherry/prune and something that seems to have a citrus bite. Not getting much yeast per se, but guessing it’s donating fruity esters. It’s not really dry, but not all that sweet. Does seem to dry out with time, and the cherry aspect is clearer. Good stuff. With thought, leather/tobacco could be in it. Not a simple flavor profile.
