3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
right from tap this was... a good American style pale ale with grapefruit citrus a bit of harshness, some sweetness and a moderate sudsy body. A biscuit type malt near the finish the brew shortly developed a bit of a Belgian character with light Banana and clove. Light yeast settled in and brew seemed to take on a bit of an astringent toothpaste like quality.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle. Poured slightly cloudy medium golden with a creamy, sticky, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up sweeter banana, cloves, and lemon zest over soft biscuit and pale malts.. apricot and other lighter-skinned fruits showed with warmth.. spicy and very welcoming. The flavor found sweet pale and bready malts at the core, with lemon zest, grains of paradise, cloves, and peppery notes around.. finished spicy with grains of paradise leading. Medium-bodied with a whole lot of carbonation on the palate.. spicy and well-balanced.. nice one!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Definitely pleasant, a bit fruity and spicy.
Appearance: Pale blonde, like those asshole Lannister’s (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 would’t expect anything less than awesome tho from Ommegang & Game of Thrones. I’d buy a lot more bottles if they weren’t so rare and increasingly expensive!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle. Pours hazy orange with the insane Belgian head (3" on a careful pour), white with very small bubbles. Aroma a piquant high flowery lemon, typical Saison. Flavor an even and light salt balanced against a light body. Refreshing, well-behaved, plenty of depth, complexity and character. A sophisticated, playful and enjoyable Saison style beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of yeast, banana, light citrus - lemon/orange, a little straw and wheat, sweet, some spices. Flavor much the same. Hazy golden. Large fluffy white head, lasting with lace. Medium body, fat and creamy. Sweet, some spice, mild bitter finish. Really enjoyable. The ’Thrones" tie-in is novel (watching S3 finale tonight!) and it actually manages to be a great beer too.

Sweet, straw, a little fruity, light citrus.
Very light, smooth, and delicious. Yeast, wheat, citrus, a little sweetness. Fairly similar to the aroma.
I can taste the paradise.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml. corked n’ caged bottle- Pours slightly hazy and lively golden with a two finger white head that never quite goes away. Aroma is Belgian, would love to have a regular old Duvel here, because it smells like I remember Duvel smelling, banana, yeast, beer. The taste is very smooth, creamy, delicious, banana is prominent, yeasty, lemon. Carbonation is high, body is medium and coats the mouth leaving the taste long after the swallow. Duvel is one of the best beers in the world, and this is a nice companion.
