Ommegang Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms

This 6.9% ABV hoppy wheat ale is from the Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, New York. Ommegang is part of the Duvel family, and is essentially a Belgian brewery plopped down in New York State. It is one of their special releases tied to the HBO television series Game of Thrones. This is, I believe, the sixth release in their Game of Thrones series.

The beer pours a lightly hazed golden yellow in color. There is an inch of white, foamy, bubbly, head. The aroma is floral, yeasty, with a citrus tang. The taste follows the aromas, very floral, toasted wheat, yeast fruit esters, with a very dry and fairly bitter finish. The beer drinks with the fine and intense carbonation of bottle conditioning. This is very enjoyable.
