Spring is Coming
Er....I mean winter. Or I mean Season 6 of Game of Thrones. Or maybe that Ommegang Brewery has announced their newest ale celebrating the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat. It will be available in March to coincide with the premiere at the suggested retail price of $10.
Ommegang describes the ale as "...a hazy pale yellow with a thick cap of pure white foam. The aroma is floral, citrusy with a touch of passion fruit and a slightly herbal hop aroma underpinned with yeast notes of banana, ripe fruit, and spicy phenols. The taste is a full, round hop flavor with tart orange and lemon with a substantial wheat maltiness and the finish has slightly lingering hop notes without being harshly bitter. The mouthfeel is smooth and silken owing to the wheat and oats."
