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.

1 finger head, pale straw colored. I get orange peels and clementines. There’s a mild funky leather brett nose. Loads and loads of wheat for miles. bland from middle to finish. wouldn’t want a 750 of this

Pours a cloudly yellow with a few fingers of pure white, slowly dissipating head. Nose of clove and wheatgrass. Taste strongly of lemongrass, a crisp beer, though not as drinkable as you’d want.

blankboy (6263) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle [750ml]. Pours a cloudy pale yellow-gold with a massive lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast along with bready notes, spices and fruit. Flavour is yeasty, spicy & herbal along with some fruit and some light hops showing up as well. Spicy finish. Medium bodied. Really pleasant.

Disappointing especially after Matilda. Not overly flavorful. Not a bad beer by any means just not overly impressed.

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
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.

bunget (572) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
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.

iowaherkeye (2696) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUL 27, 2013
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.

Inbreak (2401) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2013
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.
