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.

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a large dense frothy white head. Aroma of banana and pear with light spicy phenols. Taste is light cloves, sweet malts, earthy hops with a nice smooth spicy and hoppy finish. Excellent bpa with a great smooth finish.

Maltser85 (256) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Golden colored, white head. Aroma of some sweet grain almost? Taste is well, more of the same. Not really as impressive as I thought it would be.

Belgian yeast, banana, some grainy flavors. This tastes like a Tripel, which isn’t a style I’m particularly fond of.

VinegarStroke (271) - Napa, California, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle: Clear, golden, medium head and great lace. Very lifted malty nose. Intense. Clean. Esters and grain. Classic Belgium strong ale. Honey. Off dry, not sour and medium low bitterness. Dense flavor, even texture and medium long palate. Honey malt and banana palate. Such a classic Belgium ale profile.

Mep3222 (481) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Lemony yeasty earthy aroma. Flavor is lemongrass and Belgian yeast, with some slight sweetness. Light bubbly carbonation. A step above redemption, smooth and balanced, a good almost saison like beer without the funkiness of some saisons (this isn't a saison, but it has many saison qualities). Not as good as Russian River sours but a worthy beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RRistow12 (243) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Tasted from draft. Pours a mostly clear light gold with white head and good lacing. Aroma of banana, lemon, peach, spices, yeast. Taste is incredibly smooth with similar taste to nose. Lot of spices with belgian yeast. Citrus hops flavors and malty sweet backbone. Well balanced and medium bodied. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
