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.

Embouteillée le 06/27/2014. Impeccable présentation. Note parfaite. Nez de blonde belge de qualité supérieure avec des épices, du malt pils, des houblons poivrés, des notes citronnées, du foin. Goût relevé. Les houblons sont forts. La céréale pique. Les saveurs de la levure sont agréables. Bouche parfaite. Conditionnement exemplaire. Finale assez amère, longuement boisée avec une présence de poivre et de citron. Bel exemple d’une blonde belge. J’aime.

Noble earth hop aroma with sweet malts. Nice golden Belgian with pear and banana flavor. Great lively carbonation. Excellent example. Glad to have things like this stateside.

Pours a clear straw with huge, persisting frothy head. Spicey nose with cloves and citrus aromas. Lost of cereals. Taste is slightly sweet in the beginning with a crisp dry finish. Banana and spicey flavors. Some floral hops. Wonderful golden ale! Perfectly balanced!

My first taste of the legendary Russian River. 375 ml bottle from C-mini mart in Dublin, CA. Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is a little fruity, pear / apple. Taste is also pear / apple with a little peppery spice in the finish, faint booze. A solid belgian strong but not quite as awesome as I was expecting.
