look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

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.

4.63/5  rDev +23.8%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: pale gold, hazy, with a luxurious white head.

Aroma: sweet, spicy and just a bit hoppy.

Taste: plenty of sweet malt up front with some prominent spice from the seeds of paradise, and some fruit notes from the Belgian yeast. Enough floral and bitter notes from the hops to balance things out at the end.

Mouth Feel: fairly smooth, but with enough carbonation to keep things sparkly.

Overall: good, though not quite great.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750 mL bottle purchased in the Dupont Circle about a week ago, no birth date (but unnecessary for style), poured into a 3Fs Teku long-stemmed glass, drank 3/31/13...wanted to get this review in before watching the Game of Thrones Season 3 premiere (now isn't that commitment to beer!)

A: 4.5 - golden yellow coloration (just like Joffrey's hair), hazy, hazy, hazy..., white frothy three-four finger head dissipated over time into a soft glace lacing, minimal alcohol legs

S: 4.75 - estery, orange peel, lemon, banana, coriander, herbal spice...pretty classic smelling Belgian golden strong that is as good as any of the style

T: 4.5 - little-to-no hop presence or bitterness on first sip, candy sugars and banana predominate, especially on the back of the tongue, sweet aftertaste, little alcohol flavors (expected at 6.5%)

M: 4.25 - high carbonation, mild-to-moderate body...all very appropriate for style

O: 4.5 - I have read some mediocre reviews of this beer and don't understand it at all (unless these are all anti-Lannister/pro-Targaryen supporters); it pretty much nails the classic Belgian golden aroma and flavors as good as any American example that I can think of; OK, that's enough...now let's start watching this episode!

750ml bottle into snifter. Bottled 01/2013, best by 01/2015.

A: Pours a bright lemony golden with a huge, billowing, dense, fluffy and mousse textured bone white head that lasted in some form or another the whole beer through. Huge boulders of rocky lace were left down the glass.
S: Tons of spice, citrus, earthy herbal hops and a bit of funk. The lemon peel and peppery grains of paradise are easy to pick out. The barnyard yeasty funk is a bit of a surprise. Smells like a spicy golden ale with farts.
T: Golden fruits, lemon zest, peppery spice, coriander, white grape, dry earthy barnyardy yeast, wheat and dried grains. Great blonde ipa flavors with a kick of spice. The finish and aftertaste are full of lightly bitter and earthy hops.
M: Full bodied, rich and creamy mouthfeel, smooth and frothy carbonation. Drinks really well.
O: Really really good. Perfect amount of hops and spice and a very creamy and rich mouthfeel. One of the best in style.
