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 itís 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!

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Hazy golden with a small white foam. A yeast and euro hop aroma. I taste the yeast and hops along with fruit. This could be a farmhouse. Not bad at all.

Bottle shared at Zwanze Day 2012 by arminjewell. Thanks! Pours a bit hazy golden appearance with a fairly white head. Fairly fruity, lemon, light banana, somewhat spicy yeasty aroma. Kind of chewy bready, somewhat boozy, straw, straw, somewhat fruity flavor. I really didnít care much for this.

ekoerper (588) - Iowa, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Aroma: light malts, bread, some yeast, peach and apricot. Pours somewhat hazy, golden in color, massive white head with excellent retention, good lacing. Flavor is very fruit forward, pineapple and peaches, also bready malts and a touch of hops in the background. Medium body, high carbonation. Nice brew.

Bottle. Pours a hazed and almost murky amber gold with a large white head. Floral notes, a good amount of musk and yeast. Medium bodied, fruity esters and a nice amount of sweetness. Long yeast on the finish, a touch of warming alcohol lingers for a while. Warm and toasty, sweet floral yeast.

750 ml bottle served in a FFF teku glass. Batch #19 A: Pours a semi hazy apricot color with a thick white head forming on the pour. As the head recedes to a thick ring it leaves nice sheets of sticky lace. S: Big fruity esters and vibrant tropical fruit flesh. Some belgian yeast, slight spicy, but mostly restrained. Dry cracker malts sweetness. Some booze is noticeable as it warms, but it adds a nice layer. T: Slighty spiced yeast with some bready flavor components as well. Light tart fruits, mild tropical fruit flesh no noticeable booze until it warms up. M: Light bodied with a medium to high carbonation level and a sweet, drying finish. O: The mouthfeel was great for the style and it went down easy. I killed the whole 750 ml and definitely felt it afterwards. Easily drinkable for 10%. I suggest sharing with friends.

Enjoyable but overall confused. The yeast, malt, and citrus hops interacted like strangers in a doctors waiting room - they were all there, but cared little about talking with one another and just wanted to get out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 from West Lakeview. Orange pour. Yeasty bread like aroma. Bread in taste with pineapple and apricot. I guess thatís the yeast talking. Bit of must as well. Called "Belgian" but maybe just for yeast. Very unique take.

HonkeyBra (3353) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2012
750 ml bottle. The beer pours a dull golden color with a thick white head that nearly coats the glass. Aroma of pineapple and tropical fruit, fresh bread, some spicy rye and touches of belgian yeast. Flavor is rich, earthy, rye and fresh baked bread. Medium bodied. Certainly interesting. Finishes on an earthy shallot note.

Golden orange pour with a large white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste of alcohol followed by malt, yeast, and hops. Interesting beer.

750ml bottle from West Lakeview Liquors, Batch #19. Pours a cloudy, orange-golden colored body with an inch thick, dense and foamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is fairly dry with a light rye spice mixing with a clean pilsner malt that has a touch of a bready sweetness to it. Fairly fruity with some pear, pineapple, and a light coconut note. A light yeasty pepper and a few tropical fruits coming through as well. Cool aroma. Flavor is more malt forward with a slightly sweet, bready pils malt up front. Still maintains a solid spiciness from the yeast and rye malts. A nice pear fruitiness with a slight honey note before a bit of a citrus and tropical fruit comes in. Herbal, earthy, and grassy hops kick it up at the end as well as some yeasty pepper before this finishes dry and moderately bitter with some fruit notes and a light bready pils malt sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste with a light alcohol note following a medium body and a fairly lively carbonation that fits really well with this. Overall, a pretty cool Belgian Strong. Really cool aroma and a nice flavor with a bunch of things going on. Dry, spicy, and balanced from the slight malt sweetness as well as a solid carbonation. Good beer.
