COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is a tradition in the world of ale brewing to craft celebratory holiday ales that incorporate festive spices and perhaps other special ingredients. Baird Jubilation Ale is brewed within the context of this tradition and in the spirit of joyful celebration. A hearty ale with a rich malty base and soothing alcoholic warmth (ABV 6.5%), Jubilation Ale is made luxuriant by deft additions of two wonderful ingredients: (1) fully ripened figs candied in the country kitchen of our friend, Shoko-chan, and (2) cinnamon twigs culled from a Japanese Nikki tree. A sublimely balanced interplay between sweet and spice reminiscent of the yin-yang duality of life results. The ruby-red hue and the wafting aroma of cinnamon warm the heart and furbish the soul.

22oz Bottle @ Paul’s gathering. Copper pour with tan head. Spices and malts , make a easy drinakable beverage that doesn’t have much to it.

Strykzone (7357) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2017
Sampled at an ESBLs. Deep golden amber. A beige layer of foam. An odd aroma that I am not sure what to make of. Spices are prominent in the flavor. A little like fruit cake but more complex. Interesting.

Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark caramel brown color with almost a finger of off-white head. Aromas of apples, dark fruit, light spices. Tasting notes of dark fruit, spices, slightly bitter bread. Medium-light body, dry finish.

Bottle:   Deep amber, somewhat of a dark red, cloudy and dirty, moderate off-white head, frothy, with spotty lacing.   Lots of dark pitted fruit on the nose.   Not real heavy, but it seems like dates, figs, and raisins.   Golden raisins to be more exact.   On the tongue it certainly carries that dark pitted fruit aspect.   The body is light, meaning its not like a dubbel.   The backside has a very dull cinnamon aspect.   Now I know its nothing like a Dubbel.   I wished this was a bit more full bodied, and sweet.   Seems to come across as a weak Dubbel with some other spices.   Not bad, but needs a little more body and brightness.

wlajwl (6811) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Aroma is unique/different spices, malts and very light citrus. The flavor is spices, malts, mild coffee, a hint of toffee and a slightly puckering, tart finish.

Beer5000 (6487) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2010
330 ml bottle. Hazy orange body with a fine off-white head. Aroma is fruity with some caramel and cinnamon spices. Flavor is refreshing fruity, mild malty, fine balanced bitterness, cinnamon and other spices, maybe some ginger? A nice, fruity, spicy and a bit unusually beer. Quite enjoyable.

obguthr (6355) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle at Butters’ Slutfest: Fig nose. Clear auburn, medium yellow head, good lace. Malt and fig flavor. A bit on the sweet side, not complex, but acceptable.

3.3
reebtogi (6267) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2011
650ml bottle pours amber in color with a small off-white head that leaves little lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity with some cinnamon. Taste is fruity sweet with some maltiness and cinnamon spice with a slight trace of hops in the finish. An interesting brew that was somewhat enjoyable, but not something I could drink daily.
