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.

On draft at the bruery. Golden pour (pun intended) small white rings. Aroma is predominantly belgian yeast with a hint of spice. Taste is initially sweet with some spice, pears and pineapple.

boxofrane (2255) - 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."

(bottle) murky orange colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of cinnamon, vanilla, caramel and alcohol, with a hint of nettles and cheesecake. flavour is mostly caramel and grape juice, with a heavy sweetness, lots of alcohol, some lemons and brown sugar. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

Light orange lots of fruit and pineapple aroma. Smells like a fruit salad. Boozy finish. Lots of fruit juice. Pineapple and apple and clove. This is solid. Abv is decently hidden.

AirForceHops (3509) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 30, 2014
750 ml bottle RS purchase. Color is a mostly clear orange with a tiny ring of head. Aroma is a metric ton of pineapple with light cinnamon.

Flavor is a lot of pineapple, an array of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and Ginger) I really don’t enjoy ginger root and I have that flavor here. The body is medium the a sweet fruity finish. The ABV is pretty well hidden of course I can only taste pineapple and spice. I’m about to compare right against the Bourbon Barrel version. I hope the BBA gives this a better complexity.
