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.

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.

Hazy tan body with rapidly disappearing beige head. Strong aromas of honey, vanilla, red berries, orange and croissant. Powerful, sweetish, with fresh sourness. No bitterness whatsoever. Creamy, medium-lasting finish.

Pours a lovely dark mahogany body with a small white head. Has a fantastic sweet aroma of berries and malt. Goes down smooth with no lingering after taste.

Lots of flavor. The flavor is has a near perfect combo of malt and dark berries. The beer is dark and fruity but not tart. It's pack a punch with every sip. This a winner ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow. I'm really impressed with this beer. I'm usually not to have gooseberries, but I think I like them :)

RedSox2004 (1456) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Medium brown mahogany with a slight haze, strong two-finger head that dissipated to a solid and consistent film, and exquisite lace. Aromas of ripe dark fruits - figs, plums, raisins - banana, brown sugar, toasted malt and a whiff of maple. Rich dark fruit sweetness with the tartness of a granny smith, accompanied by toast and brown sugar. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, rich creamy mouthfeel, and a slightly tart finish. Wonderful - might put one away for a couple of years.

Petkus331 (372) - Redford, Michigan, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Strong banana clove belgian aroma. Appears to be unfiltered, a caramally opaque light brown, beautiful lacing. Tastes of sour ginger with hints of sweet banana, some leather, followed by hop bittering. Palate is medium bodied a little fizzy. Overall, very nice.

DocLock (8667) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2013
750 from Smith’s and Whole Foods. Pours turbid ruddy brownish rust colored with off-white head. Nose is plum, cherry, berry, funky yeasty esters, mild hopcitrus. Tastes dense and complex on the palate, with the lack of filtration adding layers of fruity complexity. Finishes with notes of old aley funky yeast, fruit and berry, and winter spices.

krumbum (743) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Cloudy brown color. Light sour aromas. It is like a sour scotch beer, tart but full sweet body. Rinses light and fresh.
