4.21/5  rDev +12.3%

Poured from bottle into slim chalice. Pours hazy straw yellow with a white two finger head. Smells of Belgian yeast, heavy straw grain, some bananna, some coriander maybe. Very carbonated, taste is dry and a lot like the smell, banana, Belgian yeast, lots of grain, peppery. This is novelty beer and one that tastes pretty good. It's nothing amazing but it's bubbly texture and earthy taste is simple but refreshing.

A: This beer pours a pale golden with a touch of haze. The off-white head is persistant with two fingers of creamy, somewhat rocky foam settling slightly.

S: There is a peppery note right up front with a spicy, citrus aroma. A moderate floral hops aroma and a some Belgian yeast fruit and spice aroma. The yeast aromas blend really well with the grains of paradise spicy citrus notes. The malt aroma is light with a simple clean sweetness that teams up with something else in there to give a light cotton candy note in the background.

T: The malt and spice are what you taste at first reflecting the aroma with a citrus spiciness. The malt bring a medium amount of sweetness which is balance by mix of moderately-light hops bitterness and some of the spice. The yeast is again bring a mix of light colored fruit flavors like orange and nectarine along with a black pepper quality. The light hops flavor is a bit more in the back behind the rest being earthy and spicy. The balance is about even depending on the temperature. The finish is off-dry with an aftertaste of peppery, citrus spice and clean sweetness.

M: It's a bit fluffy being a light bodied beer with a moderately strong carbonation.

O: An elegant, well balanced blonde beer with a touch of a spicy edge, which reflects the House of Lannister. There's all the elements promised here; that Belgian Blonde light with it's almost lager like profile while still having a light touch of Belgian qualities along with a citrusy, peppery spice. It's a great beer whether you like the show or not and perfect for when you you want a flavorful complex beer that is still refreshing for a sweltering hot day.

Poured into tulip glass.apprearance is memorable, golden semi-transparent with a tint of orange color. Nose is of banana peel and meyer lemon peel, followed by a wheat aroma. Head is most remarkable here; four and a half finger head(at least). Takes three minutes for fluffy cloud-like foam with a very creamy appreance. head retention and lacing is full of large bubbles, not very resinous/sticky.Mouthfeel is a bit dry with a hop or two in the profile as well, giving this brew a slight bite. essence of coriander, clove, and finishes with a nice apricot/peach flavor.Definately a treat for spring time, with about 4 months on it..i would give this beer about 6-12 months from the release date january 2013 for prime-time consumption. Lable reads serve at 40f; ai enjoyed it more around 50-55f.

Had on tap at New World Tavern Plymouth--served into a tulip glass

Appearance: high carbonation, bright yellow-gold in color, 3/4 inch head, clear

Smell: pineapple, hay, and tropical fruit

Taste: pineapple, hay, tropical sweet fruit juice, sugar, and citrus hops at the end

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, moderate-high carbonation, bitter with sweetness in the middle

Overall: A very enjoyable BPA. It does have the distinct Ommegang taste to it. I could do several glasses of this and would look for it if I was looking for a beer in this style.

750ml split and poured into a snifter. Packaged on 2/18/13.

A: Pours a very cloudy light orangish yellow with a frothy 2 finger white head. A decent amount of visible carbonation in the glass. Leaves some good lacing on the glass.

S: First thing I noticed was a pleasant belgian yeast. Grassy with some pale malts. Authentic to the belgian pale style.

T: As with the aroma this one holds true to the belgian pale style. A solid blend of yeast and pale malts but also a pretty substantial hop backing. Lemon and citrus qualities. Great American take on the style. Lingers in the aftertaste with a hoppy yeastiness.

M: Light mouthfeel with a mouthload of carbonation. Real easy drinking beer with a very crisp and clear finish.

Overall although I havent delved into the Game of Thrones series but was excited to try a new beer from Ommegang.

750ml caged and corked bottle, with plenty of subtle references (I presume) to the marketing tie-in TV show, which I have never seen. That said, the Blind Guardian blasting out of my playlist seems appropriate enough here, huh? Brewed with grains of paradise and lemon peel.

This beer pours a hazy, bright medium golden yellow colour, with a tower of thin, ebulliently foamy eggshell white head, which leaves a few broad swaths of chunky lace around the glass as it slowly bleeds away.

It smells of dry bready, lightly biscuit pale malt, faintly musty yeast, semi-sour lemon, peppy spice - some coriander, some white pepper, and something else with a pithy citrus fruit bent that I'm sure I just don't know - and soft late-summer hay. The taste is moderately sweet grainy, cereal-like malt, more subtly edgy, kind of dirty yeast, nicely sublimated orange and lemon juicy fruit, and mild peppery, clove-adjacent spice. The extra ABV manifests outside of the flavour realm.

The carbonation is pretty much well behaved, the body a decent medium weight, and really quite smooth. It finishes fairly off-dry, the cereal malt and laid-back peppery citrus finding an equitable balance on the tips of my tastebuds.

Well, as I said, I don't know from the HBO series, but this is one agreeable BPA, the extra bit of associative spicing working well with the base pale ale, as the yeast maintains a respectful distance. Fruity, grainy, and tasty, that's all I need to glean from this.
