Seven Hells! Fresh from Westeros

Ommegang Seven Kingdoms

Of Westeros’ Seven Kingdoms, six were conquered and one, indomitable, was brought in, not by war, but by the sacred blood ties of marriage.

Omm Seven KingdomsThe sixth in the excellent Game of Thrones series of beers (sounds like it should have been the 7th.) Pours a slightly hazy straw with a medium bubbly white head. The nose is yeasty Belgian with little apparent hoppiness except perhaps for an emerging citrus tang. It’s a foamy malty yeasty mouthful with grapefruit peel, and enough sweetness for balance. This glides into a long smooth finish of malt and citrus with almost no bitterness. 6.9% ABV

Seven Kingdoms is a marriage of a traditional Belgian-style wheat and a hop-forward American ale – but unlike so many of the marriages on the show, the resulting hoppy wheat is pleasant, playful and inspired.
