750ml corked/caged bottle, served at 41 F, split between two pint glasses. Packaged on 12/05/13, best by 12/2015.
Pours cloudy amber with a large creamy head. Well carbonated. Smell is spicy! Yeasty, very Belgian. Dark fruit.
Taste is bitterly spicy/Belgian. This beer is a big surprise for me, I was expecting more traditional red, and this is like a superlight dubbel. It has a lot of the clovey flavor, and lots of yeasty spice. But it's not very sweet. As a red, it's a little odd, but just as a beer, it's interesting and tasty.
Mouthfeel is light, thin. Overall, this is a good beer. A weird red, but a good beer.

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.
