COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fire & Blood is a 6.8% ABV Red ale, brewed with pilsner, Cara-60, Midnight Wheat, flaked rye and spelt. Assertive hopping includes CTZ, Styrian Golding and German Tettnang hops. Spiced with de-seeded Ancho chilies. Fire & Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt & slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and spicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops & rye.

Ommegang Game Of Thrones - Fire and Blood is a worthwhile red ale but nothing special. Pour is a dark red (hence the Blood in the name) with a thick head that is almost too thick. Taste is malty with some fruity sweetness and a nondeScript spiciness in the end (but not unpleasant). The beer comes in a bomber bottle adorned with a artfully depicted dragon which I assume has something to do with the Game of Thrones TV show. Fire and Blood is a tasty red ale great for drinking with meals.

Big, yeasty aroma. Great label, Belgian bomber. Hazy, tea-colored brew. thin bone-colored head. Tangy, mouldering, tannic. Spritzy-peaty. Medium to slightly light body. OK, but I was looking for more. New Leaf Market.

On tap into a tulip. Absolutely beautiful dark red color with a thin lacing head. Chili is apparent in both the aroma. Which is mixed with floral notes, and the taste. Chilis are a little too up front, but the aftertaste is nice mixed wither he smooth character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

1 Belgian phenols, spicy, clove and pepper. Rye? 2 Light brown with a tan head 3 caramel sweetness with raisins, chili hot in aftertaste 4 medium carbonation with a dry aftertaste from the rye or possibly the chilies 5 A pleasant Belgian beer with a slight smokey hot chili character. The pepper was done well, with not too much to overpower.

750 ml bottle corked and caged, purchased at Evergreen Discount and poured into my NBB globe glass at home. Easy 5 for appearance, crazy lasting, rocky head, elegant thick lacing. Deep reddish brown and hazy with light sediment, active carbonation. Aroma is fairly malty, toasted grains, toffee, Belgian yeast, light caramel, earthy hops, light floral notes and light fruit. Similar flavor, matly, mildly sweet, nutty, lightly bitter and just a touch of spices, no heat from the ancho chilies. Medium body, smooth and somewhat dry with a clean finish. Overall, it’s just OK, the last one was much better. A little pricey, perhaps should call it Red Waste.

From bomber. Pours a reddish brown with a healthy slightly off-white head. Has that nice aroma of a good red ale (Belgian yeast?). That same flavor carries through to the taste, with a touch of sourness/bitterness hanging around for the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
