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!

this had a great golden color and strong biscuit and yeast and fruit notes. Thick feel lots of head. Flavor was dark fruits with a tad bitter and citrus flavor with resin and pine. Bubbly.

Golden pour with eggshell head. Nose bready with slight citrus bite. Lively and carbonated on the tongue with light lemon and yeasty cracker body. Refreshing and refined.

Bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is richly spicy and lemon citrusy. Surprisingly full flavored, dry and floral with a nice lingering bitterness. Lively active carbonation. Really good beer.

DenverLogan (796) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Pours a light gold with significant head and lace. Aroma of bread dough and white chocolate covered raisins. Medium carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of powdered sugar, light malts, floral hops, light white pepper, slight banana, light herbs, slight toothpaste. Overall flavorful, smooth, relatively easy drinking and tasty with a slight sharp candy cane like bite at the end.

Bottle and served in my trusty Pipeworks snifter: Pours a clean golden hue (initially, the second pours was a tad cloudy) with a fizzy head and good lacework. The aroma is pils malts, spicy and moderately fruity hop esters, slightly chalky and minerally, with a hint of rye. I LIKE THE NOSE! Yippie!

The taste is quite balanced between the pale malt, spicy hops, light to moderate fruit undertones, and crisp hop bitterness. If a tad cleaner finish and perhaps a tad less dank I would give it a 10. Still I am nitpicking here, this is an American version (with dank and tropical undertones) of Duvel and I am a big fan! The mouth feel is sprite and prickly with a dusty and minerally finish. For 10% ABV this is a dangerously drinkable beer. Glad, I got more bottles to age and see what some cellaring does to this beer... if they last that long. Great Job, Beejay, Scott, and Gerrit! Just as good as the sample I got to try a few weeks ago. My second favorite Pipeworks beer after the NvsU.

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.

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.

Great label and bottle. Pours a golden orange with an off white head aroma of spices and lemon zest. Taste is delicious, nice spicy, peppercorn lemon zest, and fruit notes leading to a spicy, long finish. Flavorful Belgian, another great one from Pipeworks

Pours a golden hue with a firm head. Notes of light fruit show with a background of malt notes. The dense malt notes show nicely during the mouthfeel. Sweet malt with light notes of very muted dried fruit that give a lively finish. I would not think this was a 10aBv if I did not read it on the bottle. Once again, good stuff!

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.
