I had this on tap at Stone Grille in York PA , served chilled in a goblet.

The color is dark red with crimson hue and has good clarity with white cap which creates a web of lace w/ fine bead. The smell is yeast phenols with light toast and slight smell of malt and spice. The feel is toasted in texture with dry body and moderately carbonated with light sweetness and mineral element with low alcohol influence.

The flavor is yeast driven with more of a mineral taste than the nose lets on with light malt flavor that has a dry and toasted grain accent to the spice and phenolic yeast dominance in the taste with gentle nuttiness and light herbal and twiggy essence toward the finish. Overall I was not thrilled with the flavor, a bit lacking in body and balance it is a very dry red ale which is ok, but I would not purchase this again either on draft or in the bottle.

This beer is just awe-inspiring. I had heard good tales told of Ommegang and its Belgian roots, but had never had the opportunity to try any of their offerings until I saw this at my local Total Wine. I was immediately intrigued at least by the novelty of a Game of Thrones inspired beer, but when I read that it was a Belgian style red ale with a good BA score and heard that it came highly recommended by the employee doing tastings of various other beers that day I knew I had to try it. This beer looks incredible. It pours an amazing dark ruby color and formed three or four fingers of fluffy white head that passed the rim of a large glass and did not even hint at disappearing until I myself drank the beer, which left gorgeous lacing all the way down. The taste was also something truly unique as it combined the malty profile of a very flavorful red ale with the unique taste of Belgian yeast, one of my favorite things about Belgian style beers. Altogether this is a truly unique beer which looks, feels, smells, and tastes incredible. Utterly beyond comparison.
