What do you do when you get a sudden urge for a blond beer?
Check your fridge and crack out a Russian River Damnation of course!
Thanks goes out to Maek for hooking me up with this 7.75% beauty.
Served in a teku glass it pours a clear gold with a dospy head of white foam that lingers the aroma features lovely crackery light malts, white pepper, pear and mild funk. Wonderful.
The mouthfeel is exceptionally soft on a light body, the finish is dry but it’s full of flavor. Banana, funk, wheat crackers, pepper just yummy.
Yep this was just what I was jonesing for.

Bottle in LA. Pours hazy golden with foamy white head. No lacing. Some fruity belgian yeast esters in the aroma. High carbonation, medium body. No sweetness, finishes very dry with moderate bitterness and some hop aroma. Some warming alcohol on the finish. I would prefer it fruitier and less bitter (damn the style guidelines). Good BGS.

Damnation is a very good Belgian ale that leans a little on the stronger side. It’s a beer that lends itself more to a slow sip than a big chug or gulp, but its still smooth enough to not bite back after swallowing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to goblet. Look: thick golden color, lasting white head. Bubbles are small and numerous. Nose is fruity, yeast, orange, pineapple. Taste has some Belgian Wang, as expected, but not too much. Taste is refreshing, bread, orange, pineapple. Smooth finish. Beer is very bubbly all the way through. This is not my style of beer, but this is a very well crafted brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma and taste are big on the Belgian esters, clean and nice with the booze well hidden. Dry finish, good carbonation, booze well hidden, solid interpretation.
