5 Golden Rings is the 5th verse in our ’12 Days of Christmas’ winter seasonal ale series. This is the only golden ale in the bunch but it definitely packs a holiday punch. We spiced up this 11.5% ABV ode to Winter with cinnamon, allspice and ginger along with some delicious sweet and tangy pineapple.

On draft at Blue Dog Tavern in Chalfont, PA. Of the three people in my party that had a four ounce glass of this, we unanimously agreed that this beer reminded us of Warheads candies. A fourth stole a sip and said "soy sauce," which I didn't get but to each their own. Regardless, I wouldn't return to this brew.

MrChopin (3810) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 13, 2013
hazy gold, oily white ring head, large bubbled minor lace. Nose is heavy pineapple and wheat, cinnamon, musky heat. Flavor is musky, dirty paper, lightly sweet and estery. A mess... a success by Bruery standards.

Wow. This has a lot of pineapple. Not hugely sweet though. Decent as an exotic experience but not an everyday drinking beer.

750mL thanks to mixmasterob/my secret santa! Pours a low haze golden. Weak, white head. Nose is sage, honey, chamomile, estery, sugar cube, mild plastic and toilet cleaner. Taste is lemon, paper, harsh/acrid chemical, lemon, butyric acid/stomach bile. Harsh, unpleasant.

Iphonephan (5001) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a reddish gold with a thin white head. Aroma of orang, pineapple and toffee. Flavor dominated by pineapple -- less balanced than the aroma. Lingering pineapple finsih.

Damico (3003) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours clearer golden with a light amber hue and quickly dissipating head. Aroma has sweet and crispy wheat like malt flavors. The flavor brings syrupy like malts and fruity Belgian yeast, a bit too much on the palate with a thick body.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
On tap @ Max’s. Golden body with some white head. Spicy Belgian yeast, sweetness, and other spices. Way too sweet for me with the 11.5% ABV in full force. Might improve with some age but a bit young now (and I usually LOVE Bruery big ABV brews).

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Appearance: Pours a hazy bright amber gold. A top sits a thin white cap.

Aroma: Gigantic tripel like perfumy Belgian yeast.

Taste: Tripel yeast, concentrated/extra pineapple juice, bitter spicy hops, clove. Finishes with overly ripe fruit sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied modest carbonation.

Overall: I am not a fan of this beer fresh. I will say , this beer has 7 years to go for 12 Drummers Drumming and will likely dry out a bit and probably be awesome in the next year or two. The pineapple is just too sweet within a style I’m not usually seeking. For those who like a sweet strong Belgian golden, you may like it now.

Leighton (15381) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO Holiday Tasting, London - thanks to The Peter (or The Peter’s mother-in-law, rather). Pours clear, orange-gold with a fine, white froth. Strong pale malt nose with light spices and citrus. Medium to big sweet flavor with rich and sticky pineapple, white sugar, moderate alcohol. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warm finish with lots of fruits, pineapple, orange, papaya, pale malts, some spices, light bitterness. Very decent, if quite robust.
