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.

The guy at the beer store I frequent was kind enough to give me the bottle he’d planned to take home after he told me that he was sold out. So a huge thanks to the proprietor of Vine & Brew in Okemos, MI. The appearance of the beer is opaque golden amber with a very generous white head and significant lacing. The aroma is noble hops and fruit. The taste is similar, plus there is a slight bread taste to it. There is also a pleasant spiciness to it and possibly a little banana. Smooth, slightly crisp feel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer and another strong offering from Ommegang.

Damico (2799) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2015
Pours unclear thick and blonde with a nice creamy white full beige head. The aroma brings some sweet Belgian yeast, lavender, honey, and a subtle hint of citrus. Body is almost creamy, with nice light tangy yeast and citrus, the lemon peel shining through smoothly.

DW78715816 (83) - Kansas, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Wonderful farmhouse ale aroma - citrus, malt, hops - reminds me of boulevard Tank 7 in aroma. But appearance is the dark brown of a Dubbel with a very thick frothy head. Taste is fantastic. Very smooth, a little initial sweetness followed by some spice on the end. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crockett (1029) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours pale straw gold. Very cloudy. Ample rocky white head. Lots of beautiful lace. Nose of yeast, and lemon candies. Stylish. Good amount of bret funk. Thankfully quite dry. Alcohol is pronounced but not punchy. Cereal backbone layered with modest medicinal lemony hop, wheat, bread dough, and grass. Very nice. (1.5 year old bottle)

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 22, 2014
THOUGHTS: Nice, but nothing unique. Very Ommegang in flavor. A little like a lighter, spicier Duvel. TECHNICAL: Drank 3/31/2013. Bottle. Poured an ever-so-slightly hazy, medium golden yellow with a large white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had light to moderate light bread, pale malt and cracker; moderate grassy hops; moderate spicy yeast; pepper and lemon with more and more spice coming out as it warmed. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and slightly sweet and lightly acidic and bitter; while the finish was moderately bitter and lightly sweet and acidic with an average to long duration. There was pale malt, white bread, cracker, lemon, pepper, spices, spicy yeast, grassy hops and more and more lemon as it warmed. The light to medium body was dry with very fizzy carbonation and a dry and metallic finish.

Boutip (5065) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a very generous head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of Belgian malt with some yeasty and bready undertones. Taste is also dominated by a Belgian style malt with some bready and yeasty notes with some residual sugar notes. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Solid Belgian blonde ale with nice drinkability factor.

slowrunner77 (6707) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
"Fairly typical belgian golden ale, though you can count on Ommegang to put together a well constructed brew. Overly carbonated, but surprisingly soft on the palate. Spices. light fruit and hops and the palate and the nose. Nothing special, save for the bottle itself, but a solid beer."

basaywhat (80) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Clear golden color with a thick white head. Aroma is hay with mild banana. Flavor is very delicate, like a very dry white wine with a decent yeast presence. Clean, crisp with a light sweetness in the finish.

Light in body, slightly lemony/citrus. Finishes with nice bittering hop notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
