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.

Noogfest This one pours a hazy light gold color. The aroma was characteristic of a Belgian but lots of hoppy notes. Some spicyness that ended with a dry hoppy finish.

Thanks to Flip for shipping this to the Nooga. Poured a light cloudy yellow. The araom had cloves, cherries and bananas. The taste was spicy with cinnamon, bananas, clove and bread. I wanted more flavor out of this one. Still, nicely done.

had this with a long string of beer today...who know what’s going on?? however, this was definately a different feel for my palate after all the hops that had surrounded me like a latex glove on a dentists hand, that day full of ipas. the golden fizzy hue had a prodominately fruity nose, apples and spicey hops. the palate was light, dry and refreshing. keeping with the large white fruit feel of grapes and pears. good and i’ll drink it again if i can.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2005 Bottle: Dark golden, very hazy, large foamy white head, nice lacing, strong carbonation.   Unsweetened pixie stick candy like aroma, sweet yet slightly tart.   Yeasty/bready start, very Belgian Goldenish.   Turning into a floral and saison like flavor.   Solid brew!   Enjoyable body and mouthfeel.   Finish semi-sweet and quite floral.

Oakes (13454) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2005
Cloudy, effervescent golden with a billowy head. The richness of the gold colour cannot be understated here. Champagne-toasty aroma with pear esters. The body is full, the malts sweet as honey and well-rounded. Delightful spiciness backs them up with faint esters and peppery alcohol. A precision brew. I’d always suspected somebody could do this style as well as Moortgat...

05.22.05 Batch 01 bottle, 750ml, at Jimmack04 invitational, thanks to Jim. Straw colored brew, highly effy, lofty head. Light and bright aromas and flavors of unripe pears, grassy yeast. Not as dry as the aromas fortold, yet still firm bodied and dry enough to prevent sweetness from overpowering. Honeysuckle. Nicely made stuff.
