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.

bytemesis (9325) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Pours clear orange hazel, medium fizzy beige head, dissipates leaving decent lacing. Aroma is Belgian spices, raisin, prune, a bit of dust. Flavor is light plus sweet, light plus bitter, loads of alcohol burn along with dried fruits and berries and a bit of clove. Medium body, kind of harsh with the booze and some late bitterness.

Slightly hazy deep amber under a tight ivory head. Lovely earthy berry sweet nose with dark raisins and gooseberry and Belgian candy sugar. Smooth bold flavor that’s got the same tones from the nose; dark Belgian malt, plum/raisin, gooseberry, Belgian candy sugar, a warm slightly cocoa’d booze heat, and a sweet fruity finish. Lovely. Warming and pleasant and complex.

Patrickctenchi (6750) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Almost clear brown, with a thin beige head.
Raisin, plum, berry aroma.
Taste is very sweet....and rich....berry, toffee malt.
A bit of noticeable alcohol, but quite well restrained.
Very good.

shrubber85 (11666) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Bottle (courtesy of Phaleslu). Candi sugar, light gooseberry, toffee malt, and straw aroma. Copper with small head. Very sweet brown sugar, gooseberry/plum, toffee malt, and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Good body. Light alcohol finish but much less than expected. Pretty good - guess I expected more though.

rodenbach99 (4678) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2016
Bouteille de 750ml capsule métallique. Semble être 11/12/13 étampé sur la bouteille. Bière ambrée-caramel avec une mousse beige à fort pétillement. Un nez de caramel vineux, de fruits fermentés., une touche d’iode, un peu de Norvège. Une bouche piquante, légèrement acide, mélasse, fruits fermentés. Une finale acide sur l’alcool. Pas ma meilleure.

jgb9348 (6509) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, fast-dying tan head that leaves a decent lace. Aroma of roasted malt, lactose, cherries, figs, earth and a touch of nuts, but this is all about the deep sugars. Medium-bodied; Assertive sweetness from the pitted fruits along with some caramelised sugar notes, a bit of malt and earth and some subdued spice complexities on the finish. Aftertaste shows a nice yeast strain flavour, a little breadiness, some dryness, but a lot of sugars, some malt and the fruitiness that shows well. Overall, a very nice beer that is structured well and has a solid complexity throughout. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 19-June-2015 for US$15,95 sampled at home in Washington on Christmas Eve, 24-December-2015 with my family.

Vignale (4051) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2016
Flaska från Brill som stått i källaren ett par år. Ändå känns den fortfarande lite rå och kantig. Visst finns choklad och torkad frukt men mest maltiga lite råa smaker som nog kommer att mogna fram fint efter ett par år till för här finns kvalitéer från en stor kropp. Inte en tillstymelse av spritighet eller trötthet. Gott men kan nog blir ändå bättre.

Errl (2577) - Plano, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle..pour is golden with a light head...Nose is spice, caramel, sweetness, stale...Taste is stale, roast, berries, spice, sweetness, belgian..
