4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The very pale Lannister blond body, and the rapidly rising carbonation bubbles. which formed a large, three finger thick head, made this beer look very similar to Duvel. The smell was spicy, fruity, sweet.,and slightly funky, which were all indicators of a yeast and wheat dominated beer. Each sip presented classic Belgian strong ale flavors of lemon, pear, white pepper, clove, banana, and a finish that was quite barnyard funky. Light, airy body, and an easy drinking disposition were quite pleasing. One of the most authentic tasting Belgian strong pale ale I have seen originating outside the mother country. Well done in returning this beer to the market, as I missed it during the initial release. The beer came in a two pack box of bombers bundled with a Brewery Ommegang and Game of Thrones branded glass. The exquisite artwork of the box provided an additional treat to a fan of the show like me. Winter is coming, so I might have to pick up a few of these to keep me warm.

A delicious golden unfiltered blonde ale. Worthy of representing the show and its name. Has a great flavor that has a good after taste that sits in your mouth. The citrus flavor isnít over powering but balances the beer perfectly. Carbonated perfectly. Wish it wasnít a limited beer and that it is always around.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2015 One of the finest I’ve tasted and it was the beer that started my trek toward drinking craft brews.
A full, rich, brew with a surprisingly light touch on the palate considering the amount of sediment left on the bottom after being capped. I hope they bring it back as an anniversary offering.

Bottle from Red Wine and Brew. Bright clear yellow gold with small head and lace. Floral aroma with hints of marshmallow honey and sourdough bread. Mild sweet apricot fruitiness with clean dry floral finish. Beautiful soft palate. Excellent. (Iím not much of a Game of Thrones Fan but I could drink this every day.)

This actually surprised me. I hadnít read anything about this beer or known anybody who tried it and had it on a whim. Just the right amount of sweetness to this one, perfect carbonation. Very yeasty and some orange flavor. Will be picking up some more.

Pours fantastic. Light straw yellow, turbid, hazy and with a fluffy white head of foam that never fell off completely. Left plenty of soft lace all over the glass. Champagne bubbles too, this is visual perfection. Nose is superb. Belgian yeast, tart lemon, floral and earthy. A touch of banana, bubblegum, clove, those grains of paradise and underneath- good bread and soft malt sweetness. So perfectly light. Itís buoyant on the palate. All components have a brightness of character that is full but never maxed out. Taste is smooth, bubblegum and sweet bread. Malt is no stranger in this drink. Itís flavorful but delicate. Leaves just dry with a hint of hop oil bitter to make your mouth water and a lingering sweetness.
This is a visually stunning ale that is soft and silky and drinks like it was made to be drunk. Itís Belgian spice character that doesnít overwhelm with the sheer number of things, itís hops that arenít blown all out of proportion & sweet malt at itís full and subtle best. Ommegang treats you to some finesse with this one.

Had it on tap, pours a orangey gold with a nice firm head. Nose has Ommegangís usual yeast, breads, a bit of banana. The first flavor profile is citrus and the Belgian yeast funk which gives way to pepper and enough hops to liven it up. Sweet honey maltiness at the end makes a very nice impression. The mouthfeel was more carbonated than I expected and combines with the lemon notes to give this a zing. Reminds me of Goose Island Matilda. Really liked it as a warm weather refreshing draft. The 6.5% ABV is hidden well. Very easy drinking, but not boring at all. Well done, Ommegang and Game Of Thrones!

Hazy golden ale, that poured a nice dense and frothy head. Aroma has a distinct citrus/lemon scent to it with some notes of spices, all of which carried over well to taste which was sweet and puckery.
