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.

A delicious golden unfiltered blonde ale. Worthy of representing the show and its name. Has a great flavor that has a good after taste that sits in your mouth. The citrus flavor isnít over powering but balances the beer perfectly. Carbonated perfectly. Wish it wasnít a limited beer and that it is always around.

Bottle from Red Wine and Brew. Bright clear yellow gold with small head and lace. Floral aroma with hints of marshmallow honey and sourdough bread. Mild sweet apricot fruitiness with clean dry floral finish. Beautiful soft palate. Excellent. (Iím not much of a Game of Thrones Fan but I could drink this every day.)

This actually surprised me. I hadnít read anything about this beer or known anybody who tried it and had it on a whim. Just the right amount of sweetness to this one, perfect carbonation. Very yeasty and some orange flavor. Will be picking up some more.

Pours fantastic. Light straw yellow, turbid, hazy and with a fluffy white head of foam that never fell off completely. Left plenty of soft lace all over the glass. Champagne bubbles too, this is visual perfection. Nose is superb. Belgian yeast, tart lemon, floral and earthy. A touch of banana, bubblegum, clove, those grains of paradise and underneath- good bread and soft malt sweetness. So perfectly light. Itís buoyant on the palate. All components have a brightness of character that is full but never maxed out. Taste is smooth, bubblegum and sweet bread. Malt is no stranger in this drink. Itís flavorful but delicate. Leaves just dry with a hint of hop oil bitter to make your mouth water and a lingering sweetness.

This is a visually stunning ale that is soft and silky and drinks like it was made to be drunk. Itís Belgian spice character that doesnít overwhelm with the sheer number of things, itís hops that arenít blown all out of proportion & sweet malt at itís full and subtle best. Ommegang treats you to some finesse with this one.

Had it on tap, pours a orangey gold with a nice firm head. Nose has Ommegangís usual yeast, breads, a bit of banana. The first flavor profile is citrus and the Belgian yeast funk which gives way to pepper and enough hops to liven it up. Sweet honey maltiness at the end makes a very nice impression. The mouthfeel was more carbonated than I expected and combines with the lemon notes to give this a zing. Reminds me of Goose Island Matilda. Really liked it as a warm weather refreshing draft. The 6.5% ABV is hidden well. Very easy drinking, but not boring at all. Well done, Ommegang and Game Of Thrones!

Hazy golden ale, that poured a nice dense and frothy head. Aroma has a distinct citrus/lemon scent to it with some notes of spices, all of which carried over well to taste which was sweet and puckery.

Aroma: Definitely pleasant, a bit fruity and spicy. Appearance: Pale blonde, like those asshole Lannisterís (except Tyrion). Taste: Fairly light to medium in flavour and refreshing with a bit of that fusty/spiciness a solid blond ale. Palate: Pretty crisp and well carbonated. Medium body with a lasting finish. All in all a fine easy drinking brew that still has some good flavour. I wouldít expect anything less than awesome tho from Ommegang & Game of Thrones. Iíd buy a lot more bottles if they werenít so rare and increasingly expensive!
