Pours a clear yellowish golden with a nice thick white head. Aroma is full of belgian yeast and spicey, slight cracker comes out as it warms up. Flavor starts off lighter with some belgian yeast and crackers at the get go but mid stream things kick and the yeast really start to strut its stuff with some slight fruitiness and spices and a big, dry peppery and hoppy finish offering some moderate bitterness. A crisp, active thinner mouthfeel. Overall, Ommegang with a very nice beer here, which is to be expected. Would happily drink again.

Serving type: on-tap

Erupts in the glass like green wildfire, filling the glass with luxurious foam. Above the lower deck of liquid apricot, a cap of pillowy eggshell fills the upper half of the glass.

A touch of unripe pear, a hint of honey, a touch of biscuits, subtle floral hops. Sweet, floral -- a walk through a sunlit garden.

Hint of apple, both red and green. Saltines, pears, a touch of tartness. Floral, maybe roses, citrus, grains of paradise. Lingering floral bitterness.

Light body, highly effervescent. Pops and fizzles in the mouth. Bone-dry finish.

Won't distract you from the plot lines, which require some attention. Approachable.

Brewery Ommegang Iron Throne Blonde Ale

Poured from bottle into CBS snifter. Served chilled.

A) Nice looking copper colored brew with lots of bubble trails and a little haze. A big frothy head slowly settled to a dusting. Good lacing...

S) Pale malt, yeast, spices, light citrus, mainly a refreshing lemon rind scent, with enough sweetness to keep things in balance.

T) The flavor of this blonde ale really hits it's stride as it warms up a bit. The grains of paradise and lemon peel are a nice combo. Very refreshing and easy drinking. Some nice grassy hop bite on the backend.

M) Lighter medium bodied brew with lively carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Finishes up pretty dry.

O) My expectations weren't all that high. Frankly, I really grabbed a bottle because I'm a GOT fan, but this a quality brew. Now I think I'll eat every fucking chicken in this place.
