Raise your goblets, Game of Thrones fanatics. Not only is season six of the popular HBO series returning on April 24, but Brewery Ommegang has announced the release of the latest beer in its Game of Thrones series: Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale.

From the Brewery Ommegang website:

Seven Hells! Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale, the newest beer in the Game of Thrones series from HBO Global Licensing and Brewery Ommegang, is slated to debut this spring ahead of the premiere of season six of HBO’s critically-acclaimed and Emmy award-winning show.

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. Seven Kingdoms harmoniously weds citrusy and herbal American hops, with wheaty maltiness and moderate bitterness.

On sale March/April 2016, available in 750ml bottles and 1/6 barrel kegs.

The 6.9% ABV beer’s grain bill includes Pilsner malt, wheat, and oats, and the hop profile—aromas of citrus and tart orange and lemon, according to the website—is built on Bravo, Centennial, Citra, Cascade, and Columbus hops.
