Ommegang Iron Throne – Fairgrounds Wine and Spirits

By Brian Lemay 6 comments


What’s going on everybody!
Welcome back to FairgroundsTV, I’m your host Peter Moeller.
Today we have Ommegang’s latest installment. This is in conjunction with the TV show Game
of Thrones and this is called Iron Throne. It’s six and a half percent alcohol by volume.
It is a blonde ale, and it just came in today and I think we’re one of the first people
to have it. Let’s check it out.
I believe it’s brewed with noble hops, citrus peel, and grains of Paradise as well.
So, can’t wait! Highly carbonated, beautiful orangiss- oranGISH
light golden color. Beautiful, maybe a slightly-off white head.
But I mean that’s a hell of a head and if you can see the carbonation going through
my glass that’s unbelieveable. Let’s give it a sniff
*sniffs* Wow.
I’m getting a little, getting like some malty, caramel.
Not really getting any citrus. Let’s give it a sip.
*sips* This is a great blonde ale.
Citrusy, slightly citric on the tongue. It’s slightly creamy but it’s got that big
caramel nose you’d expect a little bit more sweetness from it.
Look at this head it just keeps rising to the top of the glass.
*sips* I’m getting almost like a slight banana like
you would in a, in a Hefeweizen. But you can get the grains of Paradise it’s
a little bit of the hops are getting on the back of your tongue.
This is a great blonde ale. If you have access to this, and you have a
store around you that has Ommegang this is phenomenal.
Check this out, limited edition. I did hear that they’re already starting another
batch but it won’t be out until the fall, so get it now while you can.
I would grab two bottles, grab one for now and one for the summer to share with everybody,
and then come the fall you should, you should be all set.
Enjoy this and I hope you enjoy a little “Thrones”, and that’s it. Cheers!

Bad news, our supply didn't even last a day here!!! They've started work on a new batch, but it's not going to be ready until the Fall!!! In the Game of Thrones you Win or you Miss Out On A Cool Beer!

Considering how fast it went, hopefully they'll make a bigger batch of it this time around. Ommegang's also going to be debuting their second beer in the Game of Thrones series sometime in the fall too, so there's that to look forward to!
