The Bruery’s 5 Golden Rings (picked up at Whole Foods, Berkeley). A 3 of 4. Really interesting sweet interpretation of a strong (11.5%) Belgian pale. The pineapple adds a tropical touch and lots of sweetness, which I think really works here. The body could definitely use a touch more carbonation and thickness to it, and possibly a bit less booze (it is definitely noticeable), but overall this is very interesting. Beautiful orange color - one of the most brilliant I’ve seen. I’d really like to see how this ages - I don’t think it can do anything but get better.
