COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hazy orange pour with a nice white head. Strong yeasty aroma with banana, spice, bubble gum, and sweet pineapple. Taste is sweet and tangy with pineapple, yeast, cloves, ginger, banana, and some funk. Dry finish. Soft carbonation.

Poured into a snifter. It’s been a long time since I’ve been this excited over a beer. Pineapple juice! 3.25 A: Murky orange brown color. Just over one finger of frothy beige head that falls quickly and leaves no lacing. 4.0 S: Smells as advertised. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice spiciness. Candied pineapple, mango, and sugarbread. Rich, sugary maltiness. They really nailed the pineapple, at least so far. 4.0 T: Tastes just like it smells. Lots of pineapple in this, through and through. It even has the slight tartness of pineapple juice. Mango and orange can be found as well. Spices mentioned above. Everything meshes into a unique beer experience that also happens to be quite tasty. 4.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Nice creaminess and not too syrupy like a lot of Bruery beers. 4.0 D: This may be my favorite installment of the Christmas series. It’s interesting and tasty. I think I have to go pick up another bottle. DavoleBomb, Jul 04, 2013

750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99 from notes. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a bunch of fruits, citrus, tropical notes favoring pineapple, cinnamon, ginger, tons of sweetness that probably offsets the alcohol a bit, holiday spice, nice to try but I wouldn’t drink a bunch of this by myself.

Bottle opened during the Christmas Movie Marathon on 12/20/14. Clear amber in color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of candy, Belgian esters, malt, pineapple and slight herbs. Malty and candyish sweet flavor with pineapple accents before a peppery yeast finish.

Had in cellar for two years.....can really smell the pineapple. Little to no head, and no lacing at all. Picking up a lot of citrus and pin able in the taste....very interesting beer. Glad I had it.

Gription79 (2441) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Poured from a 750ml bottle. I thought for sure this would be an oxidized mess. It is fantastic. The aroma is sweet, some cooking spices, fruity. The flavor is slightly tart, cinnamon, ginger, soft bready malt character. There are signs of oxidation, light cardboard, mustiness. I would drink this sooner then later.

boxofrane (2347) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Draft at craft ale house. Pours clear golden with minimal head. The aroma has honey and orange zest. The taste is fairly sweet orange juice, light pineapple, a bit cloying.

(750ml bottle) golden body, fine white bubbles. Nose of stonefruit, sweet, graham crackers, pineapple, apricot, peach, complex as hell. Taste of sweet fruit, peach, apricot, cotton candy, quite sweet but a really nice beer.

"Probably my least favorite so far (of the 4 I’ve had) but they’re all close. This will have better potential for aging than I thought before trying it. 3 & 4 have actually improved with age! The combo of pineapple and spicy/bubble-gummy belgian yeast is pleasant for sure, but a little too in your face to be as enjoyed as the last few Bruery holiday releases. Reminiscent of a stronger Mana Wheat. This’ll be interesting in 2013/2014."

Tap, orange pour, off white head, nose is caramel and cinnamon, taste is boozy, more caramel, nice.
