This actually surprised me. I hadn’t 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. Oldmanriver (59) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2014
Light in body, slightly lemony/citrus. Finishes with nice bittering hop notes.

Presentation: 750mL brown bottle with a "bottled on" date and a "best by" date printed on the neck.
Served in an oversized wine glass.
Appearance: It has a cloudy pale yellow color with a fluffy,white, 2 finger head that sticks around and leaves lots of lacing.
Smell: It has a dominant spice aroma, courtesy of the grains of paradise. It’s a very peppery smell, but there is also a whiff of banana and some malt in the background.
Taste: It’s quite spicy, just like the nose, with a pepper taste at the forefront. There’s some citrus and alcohol notes as well.
Mouthfeel: It’s highly carbonated, with a medium body. It’s smooth and creamy with a clean finish.
Overall: A solid brew but nothing extraordinary. I don’t get the Game of Thrones tie-in or the Iron Throne name, seeing this is a pretty tame drink. It’s something cool to have if you’re a fan of the books or the series, but it’s not worth the price tag for everybody else. This is supposed to be the first in a series, so lets hope Ommegang can step it up and create something a bit more special and unique. canes89 (31) - New York, USA - MAR 27, 2013
I really dig this style, wasn’t expecting a big hoppy beer. Love hennepin !yeastly and lemon, very cloudy . Could be a little stronger, it is what it is, and I need more. Enjoy while you can , getting more tomorrow before it’s all gone. Drchesteradk (22) - Albany, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Nice aroma. Good color, I'd prefer it to be unfiltered but you can't win em all. Taste is smooth hints of lemon very nice. Finishes smooth with a nice aftertaste. Currently on draught at the Excelsior Pub Room Albany NY.

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. BrewDragon (14) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2016 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.
