Guy brought this into the shop today, will never turn down free beer.

Pours a golden yellow with less than a finger of white head.. no lace, even as it warms.

Belgian yeast, spice, coriander on the nose. All the aromas you’d expect from a Belgian blonde ale. Inviting, hints of honey and malt on the back end.

Tart, puckering notes hit you right away, but quickly fade into your more traditional Belgian blonde that you expected from the nose. Predominantly sweet, with some Belgian spice, fruit, and bread characterizing the profile. The sour ale blend really helps give this beer some character.

Medium body, medium seltzery carb, smooth finish. Bready, some light warmth as it goes down.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy amber with a nice thick, although small, head. The nose gets a slightly sour scent, but the mouth gets struck with a lemony sour with a solid malt base. Nice!

On tap at Central Market (Houston, TX), poured into a 16 oz nonic glass. Slightly hazy light gold with a modest froth of white foam and spotty lace. Bright lemon tartness opens before rounding into sweeter, malty notes along with clove and peppery spice and fruity phenols. Light to medium body with lively carbonation. A drinkable take on a Belgian sour, though without the depth and balance of other Ommegang offerings.

Pours a hazy golden color with a pillowy white head that settled into a sparse cap.

The aroma is of clove, hay and tart lemon. Nice yeasty phenols.

The taste starts off with a lemony tartness. A solid bready malt smooths things out and adds some sweetness. The yeast is a bit more subtle than in the nose. Clove and hay seem to stand out.

The is light with ultra fizzy carbonation. Sweet and spicy on the palate but finishes rather clean and dry. Drinks very well.

A nice palate cleanser type of beer. Good Belgian notes with light tartness, wouldn’t consider this a sour as the label may suggest.

Poured from a bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Slightly cloudy golden brown pour. Massive foamy white head. Great retention and lacing.

S: Tart... citrus and yeast. Lemongrass and spice.

T/F: Slightly grainy malts... very mildly tart... not really sour at all. Strong lemon citrus mixed with Belgian yeast. Some white wine character. Fruity with mild spice... thyme and coriander. Light bodied with aggressive carbonation. The finish is more citrus and sweet/tart.

O: A really nice mild beer from Ommegang. Not really a sour... more of a Belgian golden ale with a bit of tartness. Super drinkable... great flavor. An enjoyable beer, and would make a great 'intro' to sours.

Second in the three part series of their Royal Reserve Collection, Brewery Ommegang and HBO roll out a soured blonde ale of their Game of Thrones portfolio that has a classic abbey blonde extension but also a tangy, farmhouse flare.

Queen of the Seven Kingdoms pours with a nonchalant hazy straw color and crowned with a soapy, dense, cottony froth. Appetizing to the eye, the aromas lead with citrus, white wine, orchard fruit and a supple spice. Soft and doughy malts leave a trail of fresh bread, honeysuckle and vanilla wafer on front of the tongue.

As the ample carbonation begins to carry away the bulk of malt sweetness, the fruit flavors play out on the middle palate like cider, lemon, wine, pear, orange and green berries- all seemingly of the under ripened character, exacerbated by the piquant tartness that teases the late palate with a brisk acidity, straw-like hoppiness and a bitter, grassy closure.

Spicy with white pepper, light clove and balsa wood, the moderate sourness and equally moderate bitterness intertwine to balance the drying malt, leaving the medium light bodied beer with a soft afterglow of fruit peels, lemon pepper and fragrant, soapy woods.
