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.

A return to being a darker BSA. Nicely spiced and also quite zesty from the yeast. Also sweet and fruity, dark pitted fruits. Dry, sweet finish. Fizzy but full bodied, warming. No alcohol on the nose, a little on the palate. Turtle Doves still my favorite, but this was nice."
