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.

On tap, pours a golden color with a thick white head that leave good to great lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, lemon, sweet malt and grass. Tastes of all the same things. As it warms the flavors come out better. Mouthfeel is watery and slightly chewy with a slight dryness. Overall it was pretty good but it was definitely overpriced. I paid $12.00 for the pint at a geek bar called the AFK Tavern. It’s probably one of the only kegs in Washington but $12 a pint! Come on!, guess I should have asked how much it was before it was poured lol. Not bad but overhyped for the price. I have a bottle I’m aging we’ll see how it turns out aged.

Golden color with a decent white head and fruity aroma. Taste is very fruity with a hint of spice at the end. Normally a brew like this is too light for me but I must say I really liked it and think it night be the best of this series.

Tap at Busters. Nice beer. Very slightly hazy golden pour with a smaller clingy white head. Fruity esters, some citrus bite, green banana, soft palate with a bit of carbonation bite. Yum.

Lannister gold in the glass. Body is spice and mystery from Ashai. The Maesters toiled long in their workshops to bring the ingredients to life. Even the uptight folks in the Vale of Arryn would agree that this is the elixir of the kingdom. Would go well with a bowl of brown.

Slightly fruit and spicy with a Belgian yeast finish. Hops were tropical and citrus. Nice dirty golden color with a good head. Not heavy but fills the mouth.

zoucrew102 (1088) - - JAN 1, 2016
750ml corked bottle, 2015 release. Spicy Belgian yeast aroma with fruity esters as well as some citrus notes. Pours clear golden colored with one finger of soapy, white head with excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with fruity Belgian yeast flavors. Finishes smooth with spicy yeast and some citrus. Pretty good, but unfortunately nothing remarkable.

dmac (5087) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2016
750ml murky deep gold body with a tight foamy bright white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, bubble gum, dry citrus rind, herbal. Flavor is herbal, yeast, bubble gum, hit of old menthol, grains. Body is rather full with strong carbonation and a lingering grainy aftertaste.

Pours a light gold color with a fizzy white head. The aroma was a rather light fruit sent. The flavor is a fizzy banana funk flavor. The body was thin with a funky aftertaste. Overall not a good beer.

cloudy, light amber color with a thick, white head; great, spicy, citrusy, Belgian yeast aroma; a great, spicy blonde ale; Belgian yeast and lots of spice notes - corriander, pepper, citrus; tastes more like a saison than a blonde; an excellent bee

ryanscourt (1154) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Listed as a blonde ale on the bottle, far from the assembly line of boring blond craft beers. Great spicy belgian sweetness. Still has a basic grainy body but tons of flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2015 Pours a light slightly cloudy copper, with a foamy white head that settles to a soapy lacing. Aroma is of very faint Belgium yeast and bubblegum. Very lively carbonation....too lively? Some peppery spiceness hits the tongue with the carbonation. I am getting some sourness in this - which does not seem correct. I am a very big fan of this brewery, but this seems like a total miss to me. Not understanding the praise for this one. RERATE: Unsure if I had a bad bottle, or a not properly cleaned glass - but this deserves a re-rate over my initial 2.9 rating. Still slightly over-carbonated for my liking. The sourness that was coming on strong before is not there. There is a touch of citrus - lemon? Some peppery spiciness, and light yeast. The sourness replaced with a light sweetness. Still not a favorite from this brewery, and will probably not ever get again - but it is a decent light Belgium ale.
