BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States | website

Style: Belgian Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewery Ommegang and HBO are partnering on a series of beers inspired by the critically-acclaimed drama Game of Thrones. Launching ahead of the season 3 debut on March 31, Iron Throne, a blonde ale, is the inaugural beer in the series and the result of a creative collaboration between Brewmaster Phil Leinhart and HBO.

“No one enjoys their job more than I do -- producing and developing new brews to delight lovers of fine beer, add to that the opportunity to collaborate on a beer based on the cultural phenomenon of Game of Thrones and exploring ways to make the beer truly reflect aspects from the show. It made us approach development in a completely new way and I think the first edition Iron Throne reveals that. With a Lannister currently on the throne, it made sense to do a delicate, but piercing Golden Blonde Ale with Noble hops. Iron Throne is certainly fair in color and soft in appearance, yet it still possesses a complexity and bite to be on guard for.” -Phil Leinhart, Brewmaster at Brewery Ommegang

4.94/5  rDev +28%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

The very pale golden (Lannister inspired) body, and the rapidly rising carbonation bubbles. which formed a large, three finger thick head, made this beer look very similar to Duvel. The smell was spicy, fruity, sweet.,and slightly funky, which were all indicators of a yeast and wheat dominated beer. Each sip presented classic Belgian strong ale flavors of lemon, pear, white pepper, clove, banana, and a finish that was quite barnyard funky. Light, airy body, and an easy drinking disposition were quite pleasing. One of the most authentic tasting Belgian strong pale ale I have seen originating outside the mother country. Well done in returning this beer to the market, as I missed it during the initial release. The beer came in a two pack box of bombers bundled with a Brewery Ommegang and Game of Thrones branded glass. The exquisite artwork of the box provided an additional treat to a fan of the show like me. Winter is coming, so I might have to pick up a few of these to keep me warm.

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.

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.

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!

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

750ml Bottle; Corked & caged; 6.5%ABV; No "Bottled on Date"; Acquired Nov./Dec. 2015; Poured into an Ommegang Brew Stem.

A: No doubt as to the bottle conditioning, as with several other Ommegang Brews. POPs like fine Champagne! Pours a beautiful, cloudy, blonde, golden hue, with a 3-finger pure white head that slowly dissapates, leaving lots of lacing on the glass.

N: Yeasty, bready, malty, hoppy, mixed with lemon and orange rind aromas, all very well balanced. ABV is not that great, so it's very well hidden.

T: Slight hoppy bitterness on the front as well as on the finish. Yeast, bread, citrus notes. Fresh orange and lemon rind, without being overwhelming, IMO. Nice balance. Somewhat complex. Alcohol, though low, is very well cloaked, making this brew very easy to drink (I love 750ml bottles for this reason!).

F: Nice mouthfeel. Clean, crisp, refreshing. Semi-dry. Very active on the tungue, due to the bottle conditioning.

O: Brewery Ommegang re-released this brew in autumn 2015. I am very glad they did! This is another VERY fine brew from the Brew Masters at Ommegang! Needless to say, I stocked up on it, just as I did with Three-Eyed Raven! It's clean, refreshing, the citrus element is not overpowering, making this, for me, a very easy brew to drink, and a fine brew to share with others that may not be "into" craft brews (because some may think all craft is heavy, and very strong). If you're still able to find it, I'll encourage you to try it!

CHEERS!!!

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.

Just re released by Ommegang and very good decision. Has a very light hop scent and good balanced flavor. Smooth on the palate and very easy drinking beer. Will buy another bottle while waiting on the next offering.

I got this 750 mL bottle with a champagne cork and black skirt. This is one of the famous Game of Thrones themed beers and is a delicious 6.5% ABV Blonde Ale ‘fit for kings’.

Look-It pours a delightful golden yellow like the glint of the morning summer sun off Lannister gold. The head comes in thick and full even with a moderate pour. It has a medium haze and relative clarity. The color is absolutely brilliant!

Smell-It smells of lemon citrus and spices as well as yeast and honey malts.

Taste-It has an amazing complex flavor. I get a plethora of citrus flavors like lemon merengue pie, lemon peel zest, orange rind, candy malts, honey suckle, nutmeg, essences of cinnamon, lemon curd, custard, tapioca, bread pudding, Belgian yeast, bubblegum, and noble hops. The finish gives some mild hop component that is subtle among the strong and complex malt backbone.

Mouthfeel-It is slick and chewy as well as silky and regal. It is sharp and crisp and has a huge amount of carbonation throughout giving it a fizzy mouthfeel that tickles the palate and stimulates the taste receptors.

Overall-Of course, this is an excellent beer and I believe it is underrated. I am seeing an average of 3.8 on here and I feel that this variety is absolutely brilliant deserving a world class rating. Cheers! Valar Morghulis!

Straight pour from a 25.4oz / 1pt 9.4oz / 750ml cork-and-cage bottle to my Tired Hands stempiece; no bottling or freshness dates on this one, but this JUST came out so it’s pretty damn fresh. If you really care though, Ommegang gives (I believe) Witte and BPA a one-year freshness period, and Rare Vos and Hennepin a two-year freshness period; expect this beer to be best within two years of bottling, since there’s less focus on hops than in BPA.

Appearance (4.75): Not surprisingly, this yields a very generous head that takes a while to die down—falling from almost four fingers, it’s bone-white, stiff with tight foam, it leaves a thick, rocky cap and surprisingly chunky collars and wide lacing all around the glass. The body, meanwhile, is a glowing, perfectly hazy, orange-amber color, and gorgeous. Holy shit. This beer looks amazing.

Smell (4.25): Grains of paradise and lemony character definitely evident, as per classic Ommegang style, although there is a good deal of clove and biscuity, bready malt that kind of smells like pancake batter. More of that lovely lemon peel and springy, floral aroma as it warms, and it shows more and more apple juice and honeysuckle. Very, very nice.

Taste (4.25): The lemon peel is much more evident here, believe it or not, with a floral sweetness complementing this pale, modestly sweet, biscuity malt body, before sweeping through with a very pronounced lemon juice acidity which wipes the plate clean and leaves that bright, lingering, almost sour bitterness (though I am NOT in any way implying that this has been soured—absolutely no evidence of that). The malt body goes beyond just a plain, bready, biscuit-like character, though: the typical starchy feel and lightly fruity, lightly tart character of well-handled wheat malts is very clear, too. The yeast spiciness is also clear here, following the nose with grains of paradise and some light clove, but it’s surprisingly restrained. Some very modest hops presence is evident on the mid-palate, with some nice, grassy character. No alcohol detected; just oodles of lemon, a lovely blonde body, and Ommegang yeast.

Mouthfeel (4.75): Ohhh this is just lovely—soft, pillow foam all over the place, filling every space on top of a dry, light-side-of-medium feeling body that finishes with a nice, slightly tart dryness. And, the head sticks around well long enough to pass by the lips. The body feels slightly starchy and dry, and finishes with the clean bitterness and bright lemon character. Even though it’s at a relatively moderate ABV, it’s way too easy to drink.

Overall (4.25): Sometimes, I think people overlook restraint. I love intense, in-your-face hop-bombs and rich, smoky, chocolatey stouts as much as the next guy, but what I love about Belgian-style beers—particularly some saisons and Belgian Pales—is the complexity and craftsmanship that can be shown off by keeping it “simple.” This beer does not pretend to be some avant-garde neo-Belgian concoction of unpredictable yeast and rare treatment; instead, it goes for a “simple” style of beer, and nails it with excellent execution and a signature touch that makes Ommegang what it is. Others might be underwhelmed, but I appreciate the restraint, subtlety, and craftsmanship. Great beer.

Milky golden yellow pour sitting under a HUGE cloud of white bubbles. Little particulates of goodness are suspended in the beer. The head lives forever. Originally as many fingers thick as you want it to be, the head eventually falls around the edges leaving a peak in the middle. Thick lace clings to the glass as the liquid disappears.

It smells amazing. The nose is full of lemony citrus and savory Noble hops.

Taste matches the smell with lots of citrus and spicy yeast. The malt backbone moves forward with a cracker like quality.

Very sharp and crisp mouthfeel. Multi-layered, it's sweet, tart, and spicy. Light bodied with a large punch of carbonation throughout. It's exceedingly dry in the finish as it simply scrapes your palate, making you beg for the next sip.

What a pleasant beer to drink. Not really the season for this beer, with just 6.5% ABV, it's an easy drinking beer.

Pours fantastic. Light straw yellow, turbid, hazy and with a fluffy white head of foam that never fell off completely. Left plenty of soft lace all over the glass. Champagne bubbles too, this is visual perfection. Nose is superb. Belgian yeast, tart lemon, floral and earthy. A touch of banana, bubblegum, clove, those grains of paradise and underneath- good bread and soft malt sweetness. So perfectly light. It’s buoyant on the palate. All components have a brightness of character that is full but never maxed out. Taste is smooth, bubblegum and sweet bread. Malt is no stranger in this drink. It’s flavorful but delicate. Leaves just dry with a hint of hop oil bitter to make your mouth water and a lingering sweetness.

This is a visually stunning ale that is soft and silky and drinks like it was made to be drunk. It’s Belgian spice character that doesn’t overwhelm with the sheer number of things, it’s hops that aren’t blown all out of proportion & sweet malt at it’s full and subtle best. Ommegang treats you to some finesse with this one.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. The beer pours slightly hazy golden with an enormous white head that dissipates slowly. The etching at the bottom of the Duvel glass sends a nice stream of rising bubbles up the beer. The beer smells of grassy hops, pepper, lemon, and some maltiness. It reminds me of Duvel in many ways. The flavor has a nice bitter and grassy hop profile with black pepper, some lemon, biscuit malt, and some sweet malts. The body is light to medium with lively carbonation. The finish is dry and the drinkability is high. This is an excellent beer.

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.

DATE: OCCASION: binging on Game of Thrones the last few nights, it's time for Naked and Afraid XL--and this beer... GLASSWARE: Chimay 150th chalice... thick, hazy orange amber body... a central eruption of bubbles says something is alive and at work here... the head is a thing of beauty--white-as-Ghost's fur, thick as Tormund's beard, and clinging as the Prince of the Eyre... citric orange and pineapple play with cracker malts... apple and pear suggest a crisp spiciness and a natural sweetness... the palate is the epitome of drinkability, with a frothy head greeting each sip and a lingering sweetness at each finish... a striking balance between dryness and liveliness... as to the flavor, besides the aforementioned aromas, slight nuttiness and vanilla, with a winelike sweetness--such a complex contrast, and yet, so drinkable... as biased as I am--towards the brewery and the novels/shows--there's no empirical data denying this beer's quality, and although it is a one-off, I will not deny seeking this our again if I have the chance...

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.

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.

75 cl rerelease version

Pours a hazy lemon gold, intense pillowy white head retains indefinitely at a couple inches thick.

Smells of fresh grassy malts, lemongrass, citrus, coriander, and sweet bread.

Tastes of dry grassy malt, lemongrass, and citrus.

Medium to full body with light carbonation.

Very nice tasty Belgian ale, a bit one-dimensional in the taste and disappointing body hamper what would otherwise be a top shelf selection. Still worth trying especially now that there is a second run if this your only missing jewel from the series. Actually better than a few of the other GOT beers too even if it has some flaws.

Poured from a corked and caged 750 mL bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Bright golden in color with a ton of carbonation bubbles and a dense, rocky head of white foam. After several minutes the head finally fades to a huge cap on top of the beer. Tons of lacing lining the whole glass. Picture perfect!

S: Aromas of grains and white pepper with a faint bit of lemon. Smell is similar to a tripel.

T: Flavors of lemon with some grassiness. This beer has a light fruitiness with a hint of white pepper on the finish.

M: Light-medium body with a high amount of carbonation leading to a crisp, prickly mouthfeel. There is a good amount of dryness on the finish.

O: Overall I thought this was a solid beer with a subtle fruitiness that was very refreshing. It seemed somewhat similar to a tripel in style, which I enjoyed. I would definitely drink this again.

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.

Pours a hazy, lemon straw color with lots of carbonation and a huge, white head. Leaves much lacing.
Smells of yeasty, breadlines and lemon. Some hop detected.
Taste of lemon rind and nice breadlines in which sweetness lingers. The funkiness creates is enjoyable. The hop used is in small amounts, but adds to experience.
An immensely refreshing and crisp taste.
This was a unique and pleasant effort. I will try more game of thrones.

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!
