COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At the peak of summer 1631 King Gustavus Adolphus led thousands of Swedish troops into Northern Germany. Following the destruction and subsequent plundering of Brandenburg Adolphus army marched through the endless wheat fields en route to Bavaria. Brewed with copious amounts of red wheat, Blood ov the Kings is aromatically driven by bread, biscuit and notes of exotic fruit. Hazy and medium bodied the beer has a rich and creamy mouth feel with a dry, bitter, and slightly sweet finish. Unbound by the Reinheitsgebot Blood ov the Kings would certainly have been the vital fluid of victory for the Swedish monarch as he spilled blood across the wheat fields of Northern Europe.

Poured straight into the glass to kick up some foam and get a good whiff. Indeed bready smell with a bit of plum and herb. Nose carries some alcohol for a "regular strength" beer. Hazy body is more amber than red, under a big, puffy and lacy head.Taste matches the nose, includes a sharp bitterness like sucking on a tea bag. Enjoyable enough in toto, and the extra nose of alcohol also turns the beer into a sticky coating on my lips. But you need to be in the mood for something thats not what the big boys call "drinkable."

Bottle at home. Earthy aroma has bready malt, caramel, biscuit, hoppy notes, touch of stewed fruits. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied, slightly robust. Unremarkable, but easy and pleasant malty earthy wheat ale.

On tap at 109 Brews. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of malts, wheat, roast, bread and grains. The taste was similar to the aroma with more malts, grains, citrus, wheat, roast and some earthiness. Tasty.

nearbeer (5089) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2016
500 ml. bottle pours hazy copper with a 3 inch sponge of foam thats a bit annoying in its endurance. Nose is earthy molasses, bread and spicy orange flesh. Tastes of sourish orange toffee, bread, dried grass and touches of cocoa, nutshell and wood. Medium body has smooth, low-medium carbonation and swings to the malty side, but has a drying finish. Tastes more like a home-brew English Strong Ale, which automatically catapults it above 90% in the Wheat Ale category in my mind.

bottle - Hazy amber pour with an aroma of bready malt and indistinct fruitiness. The flavor has mild to moderate bitterness with some sweet malt and a little caramel and fruit character. Light bodied. Pretty good.

MrHangover (4193) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber beer with a medium sized, white head on top. Aroma is faintly hoppy, some white fruits and grassy notes with a faint wheaty influence. Flavor is light bitter, not much else. Nice, longlasting and strong bitter aftertaste. Dry mouthfeel and finish, soft carbonation and overall just decent.
