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 brewmasterís 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.

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

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

Nice hazy yellow color. Just the right amount of carbonation, with some alcohol in the finish. Taste and aroma were solid but taste was a bit blander than it could have been.

375 ml bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Bottled on 01/15/14. Pours a clear light golden yellow with three fingers of off-white head. Light lacing. Aromas of yeast, lemon/lime, banana, herbs and spices. Tastes of banana, Belgian yeast, esters, lemon lime citrus, tropical fruit, herbs and spices, a bit of pear. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Medium-low carbonation. Very nice.

Did a 9/4/12 bottle side by side after the 1/15/14 bottle. Aged quite nicely. Not a big difference, maybe a little tartness and a bit more lemon/lime.

cfrancis (2312) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours cloudy light gold with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is light citrus with cereal malts. Somewhat floral notes with some telltale belgian yeast notes. Taste is light and smooth. So easily quaffable. Light honey and citrus zest. Light malt profile and a slight dry palate in the end. Wish this was closer to me so that I could have it more often.

Appearance - 4/5 - golden amber color thatís hazy with a white head on top that leaves nice lacing Aroma - 8/10 - banana, orange, pepper, mango, spices, breadiness in the background from the malts. Taste - 8/10 - same as the nose, plus a hop bitterness thatís nice. Banana, orange juice, papaya, wheat, toast, bread, pepper, spice. Almost a tart kind of a taste? Thereís something on the roof of the mouth that I canít quite pick out. Palate - 4/5 - light medium mouth feel, alc covered, aftertaste is bread banana orange goodness. Overall - 17/20 - not the best Belgian Iíve had but Damn good. Totally a keeper in my book + worth trying!
