COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We suggest letting this bottle sit undisturbed before opening and pouring carefully leaving natural sediment behind in the bottle.

Pipeworks is bringing the bling with Cash 4 Golden Ale. This Belgian inspired ale aint frontin, with it’s Pilsner malt base and hint of rye, Czech Saaz, German Tettnanger, and a blend of Pacific Northwest hops are stuntin. But the number one stunna here is the Belgian yeast, stepping with notes of pineapple, tropical fruit and a dry tart finish. We think this beer is the shiznit. Real talk!

Bottling Dates:
Batch 019: 7/8/12
Batch 034: 9/26/12

Batch 131 Hazy yellow with a small, but consistent head. The aroma is huge on esters. Mostly pineapple, pear, bubblegum, and apple. There is also some solvent and clove present. The flavor brings more of the same and in a smooth and sweet package. Finishes with a touch of tartness and slightly more phenolic presence and some alochol warming on the finish. Not as dry as to be expected but very drinkable considering gravity. All in all this is a very well made strong golden ale. I wold be interested to know what strain/strains of yeast were used and at what temp. Great job guys.

changeup45 (1707) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. A murky gold pour with a lasting white head on top that leaves some solid lacing. Yeast, lemon, pear, bready malt, and light grassy notes in the scent. The flavor is kicked off with sweet fruity esters of pear, apple, and even some plum notes. Yeast notes join in and the Pilsner malt base is definitely noticeable and thickens this up while providing a bready/cracker-like taste. Sticky and alcoholic; some dusty orange spice counters a little of that but there’s quite a bit of lingering alcohol tang. Big, heavy, and a borderline chore to drink although it never gets undrinkable for me. While there are some good things going on here it never really comes together for me. Probably just a little too amped up.

750ml bottle, thanks to DanielCoor’s dad for sharing! Totally hazy, lighter yellow color. Good thin white head, some loose dots of lace. Good, estery, fruity belgian aroma. Bigger body, smooth soft lighter carbonation, lightly dry finish. Light lemon zest. Moderate zesty sweet taste, light to moderate bitter - above average bitterness for a golden, but I like it. Alcohol is not noticeable or over sweet - this beer does a great job at not being too sweet, a lot of belgian strongs can go overboard with that. Some nice pineapple juice. Great, complex, belgian strong golden ale.

750 ml bottle (batch 131) pours a cloudy straw golden color with decent white head and some lacing. Aroma is full of tropical fruits, lemon and Belgian yeast, with a bit of sweet plisener malts. Taste is sweet with a slightly bitter finish, when the hops and alcohol come out. Body is medium to full with lively carbonation. Quite enjoyable and true to the style, but a bit expensive.

Bottle batch 019 thanks to StFun. Very difficult to pour without sediment. Poured hazy amber with creamy white head. Nice aroma of yeast and slight fruitiness. Power packed with flavor. Quite bubbly. Dont know what to make of it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Big, boozy, sweet, some lemon, dough, yeast, spice. Decent character in here, but it’s tough to drink more than a small sample of this beer. Too sweet.
