Iron Throne pours a slightly hazy honey yellow with a moderate, creamy head on top. The foam dissolves slowly leaving a coating of lace on the glass.

The aroma with bready and spicy. wheat, lemongrass, clove, Flowery notes are also present.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft on the palate with an effervescent fizz. The flavor has nice lemongrass notes balanced with wheat malt. It finishes somewhat sweet with a little spice (pepper, clove) and flower notes. It finishes dry with lingering lemon when gone.

A tasty easy drinking beer with a light 'Belgiany' flavor.

Shared by Jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff.

The beer is golden hued and effervescent with a couple inches of dense, white head. The aroma offers lemons, light spice, peppercorns, wheat. Smells nice. Light and refreshing. A touch of honey with lemons and biscuits. Meyer lemon cookies. A touch of hop bitterness in the finish. I am really enjoying this one.

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.

Poured from a "corked and caged" 750ml. bottle into a tulip glass.
Chill-hazed apricot in color, with a voluminous head of white foam.
Aroma-Belgian yeast, orchard fruit
Taste-Pear, apple, spicy yeast, white pepper note, noble hops lead to a dryish finish. Tasty and very drinkable, well-balanced and flavorfull. Recommended.

It's an Ommegang beer, so it's going to be good. From a 750 ml bottle, on to the beer:

Beauty sits in the glass. That velvetey, cream head sits over an inch thick and retains itself very well. The color glows yellowish orange with a godlen hue and visible carbonation bubbles riding alongside the glass. I like the nose; delicate, fruity, and spicy. It has a spiced lemon note, lemon meringue, fresh dough, a dash of nutmeg.

This is a dry and effervescent blonde ale. It starts off with a dry bready note with a yeastiness which delivers a kiss of clove. Soft banana and peppery lemon hit afterwards. It dries up in the aftertaste with a skittle of bitterness and apricot skins. Its mouthfeel is Belgian in character, being light yet uplifting with its well placed lively carbonation.

Respectful blonde ale, no matter what the occasion or celebration. Ommegang didn't try to do too much and it payed off.

Bright golden amber beer, white head, some solid strings of lace, and good head retention. Aroma is very bright and pleasant. Very spring appropriate. Sugary citrus, wild flowers, spice, yummy pale malt. Taste is sweet, tart, and spicy, with candy lemon, herb, and medium amounts of bitterness. Mouthfeel reminds me of Unibroue's beer in general. Crisp and airy. Pretty enjoyable stuff here. Refreshing, flavorful, and fun to drink.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle for the premiere. $8.65 for the bottle...a lot cheaper than I expected for an ommegang. Two things to note, I am having bad allergies and I'm usually not a big blonde ale guy

A - golden straw and hazy. Big eggshell white head

S - I'm getting some banana and bread

T - Like I said, not a huge fan of blondes, but this is good. I'm getting some banana and citrus. Some bread

M - Well carbonated

O - Let's be honest, this is a good beer, but drinking while watching the premiere may have made it better...like a hotdog at a baseball game is always better. But really, this is a good beer, not my style, but worth a try. Ommegang is always consistently good. May pick one up for next week's episode if some still around. Back to the show!
