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.

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 (18577) - 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.

Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cafe Abseits tasting during the Bamberg Excursion. Many thanks to Kenny! Pours lightly hazy gold with a creamy capping. Very sweet, heavy, lots of sugary fruits, bread and toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, warming, with more toffee, toasty sugars, ripe fruits. Not bad overall, but certainly quite rich.

Theydon_Bois (16472) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2014
Day 2 of the post Xmas Bamberg Jolly, Cafe Abseits Tasting bottle thanks to our Kenneth who peddles the Bruery in more than one country, 25/01/14. Murky orange amber with a moderate off white swirl/edgework. Nose is bitter fruits, light pear drops, sweet notes, spice, booze. Taste comprises dark fuits, sweet, dates, bitter orange, toffee, booze. Full bodied, fine carbonation, booze laden closure. Drinkable but ultimately falls short, lacks depth for ABV, not the best from the Bruery.
