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.

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a slightly hazy very pale yellow/golden colour with a bunch of foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is decently malty with a bit of biscuit, and a bit of cereal (though not in a bad way), there’s also some distinct citrus from the hops. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied with a huge amount of carbonation that just seems to explode and foam in your mouth. Taste is a bit bitter but also decently sweet and a bit of lemon rind. The taste isn’t bad, it’s just a bit simple. Still, as far as blond ales go, pretty decent.

750ml bottle. Clear golden body, big white fluffy head with good retention. Aroma of grains, herbal hops, mango, lemon, little bit of yeast. Taste is dry and yeasty, spices, lemon zest, aromatic herbal hops, peppercorn, grains. Intense carbonation. Very Belgian.

750mL bottle from Olive Tree Market a couple of months ago. Clear golden with a two finger rocky eggshell head, great retention. Lots of dry fruity Belgian yeast--slightly unripened banana, pear, some dusty white pepper, and some dry biscuit malt. Flavor adds a bit of a citrus lemon note--kinda Sorachi Ace-esque. Nice spicy pepper, bitterness peaked at a 3 in the bone dry finish. Moderate carbonation with a light to medium body. Pretty tasty.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 26.06.2013, tap @ The Cannibal NY:
Small creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly fruity, light malts, yeast, citrus, dried fruits, hay, grass, citrus peel, flowers. Taste is slightly dry, light malts, hay, yeast, citrus peel, grass, leafs, flowers. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel, a little overcarbonated. Not bad, but it could have been a lot better.

Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of is Belgian yeast and spicy esters, nice lemon citrus note, and a good earthy hop kick. Taste follows, less of the citrus and more of the yeast. Solid, but nothing mind blowing.

Bottle shared by Skyview. Thanks Bob. Light Belgian ale. Yellow color. Lots of Belgian yeast, and well carbonated. Fairly dry and effervescent. Good.

Bottle from a few days ago. Writing this review after a few days, kinda slacking on it. Very sweet, peppery, a little bit of light fruit. Definitely strong on the Belgian yeast like their beers tend to be.

pushkinwow (2552) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
750ml bottle.from lcbo. Hazy pale yellow, explosive off white head that eventually settles. Wheat, some citrus, banana, fizzy, light spice, faint alcohol. High carbonation, mild+ body, becomes quite dry, more alcoholic then I expected, not too bad.

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. Wife: 4.25
