COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At the peak of summer 1631 King Gustavus Adolphus led thousands of Swedish troops into Northern Germany. Following the destruction and subsequent plundering of Brandenburg Adolphus’ army marched through the endless wheat fields en route to Bavaria. Brewed with copious amounts of red wheat, Blood ov the Kings is aromatically driven by bread, biscuit and notes of exotic fruit. Hazy and medium bodied the beer has a rich and creamy mouth feel with a dry, bitter, and slightly sweet finish. Unbound by the Reinheitsgebot Blood ov the Kings would certainly have been the vital fluid of victory for the Swedish monarch as he spilled blood across the wheat fields of Northern Europe.

Poured straight into the glass to kick up some foam and get a good whiff. Indeed bready smell with a bit of plum and herb. Nose carries some alcohol for a "regular strength" beer. Hazy body is more amber than red, under a big, puffy and lacy head.Taste matches the nose, includes a sharp bitterness like sucking on a tea bag. Enjoyable enough in toto, and the extra nose of alcohol also turns the beer into a sticky coating on my lips. But you need to be in the mood for something that’s not what the big boys call "drinkable."

Amber color with a relatively thick white head. Aroma is slightly sweet malt with some toasted caramel. Flavor is very malty with a little bitterness in the finish. A touch astringent, but fairly solid.

BillKismet (3520) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Luminous honeyed amber red with an ok head. Fruit punch and wheat aroma with a touch grains mixed in. The body is rather harsh on the palate--rotten fruit, and spoilt tasting. Pretty foul.

onceblind (5731) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Clear amber with an uncomfortable amount of sizable black floaties, under a sticky foamy off white head. Aroma has some wheat, Amber malts, and something vaguely fruity. The flavor is quite earthy with a touch of smokiness, rich Amber malts, balancing earthy bitterness, and a whisper of a copperish twang. Doesn’t really come together all that well until the amber-caramelly earthy finish. Eh.

thedm (5163) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 2, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated light red brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The bubbly crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering Irish red malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild rye mild hops and Irish red malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Cool beer. Dark orange brown color...strange for a wheat beer. Floral and fruity nose almost IPA like. Taste is more caramel, dark fruit, and spice. Very dry finish with a sweet touch. Pretty good stuff

Ruddy brown pour, off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel and tangerine. Flavor is floral, citrus, caramel and wheat. A bit thin.

Bottle pours a hazy amber/brown with a large light khaki head. Sweet caramel aroma with scotch tape hops. Taste has a pleasent hope spice and bitterness with dry caramel malt and a slight wheat presence. Ok.
