Notes/Commercial Description:
Pipeworks is bringing the bling with Ca$h 4 Golden Ale. This Belgian inspired ale ain't 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!

A: Clear darker yellow in color; not quite golden. Forms a moderate sized white head that great staying power. Leaves a good bit of lacing on the way down.

S: Aroma is very nice: light, yet still fragrant. Notes of banana, yeast, lemon, and orange rind. There is a slight hint of spice, but it is certainly less prevalent.

T: The taste on this one is where it is at. Mild sweetness on the front end with notes of banana, green apple, and lemon. Then it moves to a bit of orange rind as well with some tropical fruit notes. Dries out on the finish with a good dose of yeast-derived spice and a bit of black pepper.

M: Medium bodied with a slightly spicy mouthfeel. Good carbonation and a mild bitterness. You'd never know this is a 10% beer.

O: Got to say, this beer proved to be much better than I was expecting it to be, but then again, Belgians should be the place where Pipeworks is going to shine.

(Served in a chalice)

A- This beer pours a hazy glowing orange body with an antique white head that fades to a thin sticky film after a bit.

S- The bright fruity esters have some fruit cocktail hop aromas to them. There is a plastic note that turns more yeasty and buttery as the beer opens but it is not offensive.

T- The yeasty pils malt flavor has a slight salt hint to it with some dry canned tropical fruit flavors that lead into herbal green pungent hops in the finish. There is a field corn hint in the finish and a touch of tartness with some grapefruit pith lingering.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a velvety texture and a spicy fizz note in the finish. There is no alcohol noticed unless I stand up.

O- This beer has nice complex flavor on the tongue with the dry pils malt and grapefruit pith flavor balance the fruity aroma and flavors in the hops.

Popped the golden bottle cap (subtlety wasn't lost on me) and poured into a .4L tulip glass. Love the label, reminds me of Master P album covers and ubiquitous strip mall pawn shops dotting the forgotten corners of Chicago's landscape. The beer has a deep orange color that glows in the light, and a sturdy cap of creamy foam billows above the rim of the glass.

Big floral spices and Belgian yeast in the aroma, chamomile and ginger, some light citrus, definitely orange as it warms up. very dry and little sweetness to be found.

Lush, creamy feel, dried oranges, lightly peppery and only slightly bitter with some of the noble hops present in the background. Peach, cloves, pepper. Smooth and pleasantly dry aftertaste, with a welcomed light tartness in the middle (mentioned on the label, so no surprise there). The double digit abv is well hidden, only present vaguely at room temperature. They hit the style dead on here, it's very close to surpassing Moinette as my personal favorite.

750ml into a tulip.

A: Pours a mild hazy gold with a large white head.

S: Mango and pineapple esters, white cake maltiness, a bit of bready yeast, vanilla, egg cream.

T: Taste brings a palpable floral hoppiness, more tropical fruit notes, sweet vanilla wafer, fresh bread, hint of alcohol.

M: Medium-bodied with creamy carbonation.

O: Very nice BSPA. I like that this is a smidge hoppy.

Poured from a 750ml bottle and split into 2 Belgian style goblets.

A - It pours a hazy golden straw color with a generous 2 finger head.

S - It smells like fresh baked bread, mixed with some banana and citrus notes.

T - This was one of the tastiest Belgian golden ales I've had in a long time. The taste is similar to the nose. At first you get a bready Belgian yeast taste, followed by notes of banana, clove, lemon, and pepper that lingers for a while. After every sip I wanted more.

M - The mouth feel was very nice. It had very nice, big bubbles and good head retention, with lots of lacing.

O - This was a very enjoyable beer. At $10.99 for a full size 750ml bottle - I will definitely try to pick some more of this up.
