COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the great beer producing country of Belgium, some brewers have made it a tradition to give their beers an unusual name. Sometimes the name is curious, now and then it is diabolical and other times it is just plain silly. Damnation is our brewmaster’s interpretation of a Belgian style Strong Golden Ale. It has extraordinary aromas of banana and pear with mouth filling flavors of sweet malt and earthy hops. The lingering finish is dry and slightly bitter but very, very smooth.

Editor’s Note: this entry is for all batches EXCEPT batches 23, 46 and 69 see separate entry.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Botle: This had a deep golden body without much of a head even with a vigorous pour. The aroma is yeasty and fruity with apples, pears, bananas, and a drop or two of sweet cherry juice. Very thick, creamy, and hot in the mouth despite the "modest" (for a Belgian strong) abv. Sweet malts, alcohol, and aforementioned fruits make up the flavor. The finish is dry and moderately bitter. Pretty decent.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2006
[Enjoyed in the train from open brewing day to Københavnske Øldage - huge thanks to MadsBerg for sharing] An unclear orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol, yeast, and peaches. The flavor is very sweet with notes of alcohol, yeast, peaches, and fresh grapes, with the big complexity the strong sweetness is leveled out. I like it.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Hazy gold. Modest, frothy, white cap. Flavor and aroma of rich and grainy malt, light fruits, subtle hops and alcohol. Medium, balanced body. Simple but very tasty.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Batch 008: Fruity aroma with bananas, lemons, grass, and orange peel; yeasty flavor with a spicy and dry, honey-like finish; more esters in the aroma than flavor; muted, simple maltiness; fairly substantial body for the style. The biting yeastiness and simple flavor profile is a bit of a put-off, making this a bit of a disappointment.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Strong scent of fruit and yeast. Golden pour with rocky white head. Very pronounced flavors of sour apple and extra tart hard cider, pears, and orange rind. Yeastiness follows through in the finish. A very interesting golden.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2006
Clear golden hue with a small light head and thin lacing. Nose of apricot, orange peel, corriander, earthy yeast and pepper. The flavour was sweet malts, pear and a light citrusy touch. Subtle and enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2006 Bottle shared with a bunch of folks - courtesy of blankboy. Cloudy golden colour with a faint greenish tinge. Aroma is spicey and floral, with a faint yeasty funkiness. Flavour has honey and floral notes off the top, an earthy maltiness in the middle, and a well hopped finish.
