Share This Review

Game of Thrones: Bend the Knee is a Belgian-style Strong Pale Ale brewed by Brewery Ommegang, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a bottle.

Appearance

Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a thick off-white head of foam that recedes slowly. No lace is left on the glass.

Aroma

An inviting aroma consists of noble hops and pleasant, fruity esters from the Belgian yeast.

Flavor

The palate follows the nose, mixing banana, pear, apricot, and apple. The addition of wildflower honey provides a well-rounded sweetness to its malty base. Finishes dryly with a lingering bite from a trio of hops.

Mouthfeel

Feel is soft and silky with a medium body and medium-high carbonation. Really enhances the drinking experience.

Overall

Bend the Knee isn’t just a novelty. It’s damn good. Ommegang has brewed a Belgian Pale that’s fit for a king—even one who fancies themselves ruler of the Seven Kingdoms.
