At the peak of summer 1631 King Gustavus Adolphus led thousands of Swedish troops into Northern Germany. Following the destruction and subsequent plundering of Brandenburg Adolphus’ army marched through the endless wheat fields en route to Bavaria. Brewed with copious amounts of red wheat, Blood ov the Kings is aromatically driven by bread, biscuit and notes of exotic fruit. Hazy and medium bodied the beer has a rich and creamy mouth feel with a dry, bitter, and slightly sweet finish. Unbound by the Reinheitsgebot Blood ov the Kings would certainly have been the vital fluid of victory for the Swedish monarch as he spilled blood across the wheat fields of Northern Europe.

    Wheaty aroma has strong hay and honey-sweet notes. It pours a hazy golden with a thick and rather persistent pale buff head. Flavor is quite wheaty and has a strong hay note, plus an undertone of woody hops. Finish is wheaty and woody, while texture is fairly fizzy but on the thin side. Maybe not "bloody" good, but worthwhile.
