look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

This poured a murky and darker brown with a stream of effervescence and a fat tan head of foam that fell slowly and left lace. Nose is a bit confused. There is a brief hint of banana, some lasting cherry, fig and some faint raisin. The yeast is there and it's light and a bit woody. There is also a nice light caramel. This drinks a bit flatly as the spelt seems to have muted the rye in the drink. The caramel is light, the yeast is belgian, the beer is dry. The cherry is the most forward fruit with the raisin and fig in the background. The ancho chile pepper tastes dry and seedy and very tame. It does impart a warmth to the throat as you swallow. This leaves a bit bitter and that lingers a little sharply as it really had nothing to contrast or offset it. The flavors were all weak and a bit jumbled.

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.
