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.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy orange-yellow pour with thin white head, aroma has notes of pineapple, some nice ginger notes, hints of earth, slightly dirty, slight grape, pear notes, hints of slight booze as it warms but overall not bad. Taste is a mix of sweet ginger, allspice, lots of fruity pineapple, much like pineapple juice, hints of earth, slight peach and pear notes, pretty sweet sugary cracker and caramel notes, finishing with a hint of booze, sweet. Much like pineapple upside down cake, which is actually the better of ones I’ve had in a while!

Pours a hazy dark orange with a white lacing. Aroma consists of allspice, banana, clove, cinnamon and ginger...a bit of a mess. The flavor is bitter and could plausibly be described as medicinal. The finish is pineapple and alcohol. I’m rating this low aromatically not because the aroma isn’t pungent, but because the flavors do not blend harmoniously.

i like the beer, and the idea, but shouldn’t the days be counting down instead of up?

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured pale, cloudy, yellow-ish orange with a nice forming head. Quite fruity, perfumy, floral with tangerine-like citrus tones and other tropical fruits. Thick body, quite sweet. Fruit juice/nectar with fermented yeast spice and tartness. Hints of ginger shined towards the end here. The high abv was well masked with this easy drinking, fruity tasting beer.

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.

spicy Belgian aroma, that plays with the pineapple nicely. A slight funk flavor, but nothing outrageous. Pale hazy gold color.

4 nov 2012, tap at the Bruery. Light gold, faintly cloudy, no bubbles. Nose is strong ale and faint spice. Med body, lightly fizzy, slightly syrupy. Cinnamon and nutmeg come out a lot in the flavor. Rich, sweetbread, spiced. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark yellow with small white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices. Flavor of pineapple, apple, malt and ginger, clove and nutmeg spice. Should age well.

brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Hazy golden orange pour with a white head. Sweet sugar, malt, and pineapple. Light spice/ginger aroma, some mild yeast, a bit of pear and apple, and some very mild alcohol. The flavor is quite sweet with some sugar and caramel notes. Light ginger spice notes, a hint of alcohol, some pineapple, pear, and apple. Light peach flavor and a bit of tartness in the finish.
