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.

Dark amber color, slightly cloudy, with small head and no lacing. Aroma and flavor are very spicy with nice malts, slight boozyness, and hints of deep fruits. Pretty good overall.

kermis (7107) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle sampled at ZEBF ’15. Pours cloudy brown with a ring tan head. Aroma of dough, raisins, malt, overripe dark fruits, caramel and molasses. Flavour is heavy sweet. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

RobertDale (4333) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 8, 2015
750 ml. bottle. Pours reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of fruit, yeast, caramel, and malt. Taste is dark fruit, yeast, malt, caramel, spice, and alcohol. Think it has held up well. Nice.

AirForceHops (4680) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 24, 2015
750 ml bottle. Color is a dirty orange with ruby hints, soft carbonation level, light head. Nose is dried fruits (mostly resembles apricot) with a light odd Berry. Not odd in a bad way but I don’t think I have ever had a Gooseberry.

The flavor resembles a sweet barely wine with tons of fruit. Sticky malt backbone with dark fruits, dried pears and apricots with the alcohol hidden under all the sweetness. The gooseberry is in the background and does give a slightly different flavor then the standard sweet Belgian ale. It seems like aging this brew any longer will only make it sweeter. The malt is just going to take over.

huineman (421) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 21, 2015
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.

jbruner (2984) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2015
Bottle at catch 22 bottle share! Pours a hazy golden brown with minimal head. Aroma and taste are sweet and easy, fruity Belgian notes. Not the best but I guess it’s decent.

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2015
I’m a Bruery fan, in general, but this was terrible. Super artificial tasting fruit addition to a beer with little other character. Awful.

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

Martinus (3853) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2015
Red amber colour, white head. Aroma of caramel, spices, yeast, alcohol, brown sugar, fruity notes. Sweet flavour, caramel, quite fruity, not necessarily physalis though. Sweet, spicy finish, caramel, red fruits.
(from 75cL bottle @ ZZT XI. Thanks for sharing today’s beers, Oirschot crew!)
