Time again for my weekly post-Game of Thrones beverage review! We’ve got another good one this week.
Beer Name: For the Throne
Brewery: Brewery Ommegang (Cooperstown, NY)
Style: Golden Strong Ale
Description: This golden strong ale was fermented with Pinot Grisio and Viognier grape juice and bottle conditioned with champagne yeast. Read more here.
Appearance: Golden/amber-colored body with a thick white foamy head.
Smell: Sweet grapes with a dry white wine finish.
Taste: Mildly tart and crisp, with notes of grape, oak barrel, and white wine. The finish has a peppery/floral yeast presence and is also quite dry.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with an elevated amount of carbonation.
Hype: I am still excited by these beers. They’re a nice treat to enjoy alongside the final episodes of an excellent show.
Overall: I found this one to be quite enjoyable. It drank like a golden ale/white wine hybrid and was very nice to take my time with throughout the length of the episode.
