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.

Bottle split with Chris. Pours a hazy dark brown with frothy tan head and lace. Nose of dark fruits, raisin, caramel. Medium to full body. Sweet and malty. Notes of cherry, citrus, raisin, toffee. I think this will age nicely. I enjoyed this much more than the golden rings.

At torst with my parents. Pours bronze red with lots of haze. Aroma is spicy, nice smooth. Light nice belgium yeast. Taste is Belgium yeast fruit that works and is surprisingly not offputting. I like it. Maybe one of the only triples I like.

Butters (4049) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Sampled on the tacky lights tour brews crews with JRHB. Clear golden pour with light amberish highlights and good off white head. Sweet caramel, honey, crystal malt, cane sugar, malt bomb. Alcohol heat is definitely there, but not horrible. Much more enjoyable than the 5 golden rings, but not something to have to have again.

Got for a Christmas gift 2013. Tasty, but a bit heavy. Did well once warmed up a bit. Wish I kept a bottle to age.

The aroma is very boozy with fruit, malt, and yeast. The appearance is amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a well made season beer.

Palidor19 (3177) - Brandon, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2013
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

mcberko (16051) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
On tap at Baileys, pours a dark orangey amber with medium beige head. Aroma brings out hazelnuts and some dark fruity notes. Flavour is similar, bringing out toasted hazelnuts, dry caramel, and some fruitiness. This sixth version of the series is loads better than fifth, but still not very sophisticated. Decent for the Bruery, but nothing special.

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.

Tap. Light tan head, murky reddish brown. Slightly sweet malt, touch of dark fruits, some candy sugar, and not terribly overwhelming. Fairly sweet, dark fruits, and finishes sweet. Medium body.
