COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Collaboration with HBO for the Game of Thrones series.

Blonde ale with malty sweetness and a touch of fruity spiciness, Noble Hops aromas and notes of citrus. Suitable to serve to kings, or pretenders to the iron throne.

Pour slowly so as to not disturb the yeast sediment, but with enough vigor to create a luxurious head and release the rich bouquet.

This was unexpectedly nice. Aroma was Belgian yeast, spice, light fruity esters, light citrus. Flavors are booming with Belgian fruitiness and spiciness. Very nice.

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2013
This was a fantastic brew from Ommegang. So many spices and robust citrus fruits among sweet Belgian yeast flavors. The finish reminded me of their Hennepin quite a bit. Loving this brewery more and more every time.

Appearance: Pours a yellowish orangish opaque.
Aroma: Aroma of lemon, yeasty. faint spice.

probstblueribbon (2858) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2013
750 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Clear golden with a nice off-white foam. Sweet cereals, faint honey, a bit lemony, a little earthy coriander, light fruity esters, hints of minty herbals. Medium body, full creamy effervescence. Sweet, lightly fruity, faintly floral, honey, a little biscuit, light citrus, faint minty herbals; off-dry with a light and pleasant fruity finish. Light and friendly.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle:   Orangish straw, thick and hazy, big frothy white head, nice lacing.   Big yeasty nose, bright breadiness, a little farmhouse like, soft floral aspects.   Smells like a nice big Belgian Blonde.   Big Belgian Blonde like start.   Lots of musty stray/hay, pale breadiness, soft floral aspects.   Seems a bit dry, wished it had some more sweetness.   Seems a bit dry overall.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Pale floral finish, soft breadiness, a bit bubbley.   A fairly decent Belgian Blonde type ale.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2013
A solid blonde ale that I bought, much like others, because I love beer and nerdy TV shows. Not quite a devilish blonde, but pretty solid with a fruity, hoppy presence and bubbly feel. Worthy of the first episode of season three. Not quite red wedding potent.

Pours a cloudy golden with a big frothy white head. Aroma is bready grains and yeast. Taste is big yeast and belgian spice off the yeast. Nice bed of bready malts.

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
1 OZ sample at Beer Revolution courtesy of @kgamiller. Clear golden pour, weak white foam that bubbles away slowly. Aroma is earthy malts, hints of caramel, and mild floral. Taste is a mild sweetness, honey, citrus, little bit of pastry shop malt, and just nice and light. Fruity, yeasty notes also. A delicious blonde worthy of the Iron Throne, for now. Can’t wait for more in this series.
