COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Lots of bananna, fruity yeast esters, and a crisp bread/biscuit like character in the aroma. Bananna, clove, yeasty flavors and that same dry biscuit malty flavor. The finish is very dry that leaves a tad bit of lingering sweetness

Aroma is a wonderful set of floral senses with lemongrass, citrus, straw and a nice earthiness. Taste is nice sweet body with honey, pineapple and passionfruit. Appearance is a hazy gold with a thin pearl head that retains quite well.

Draft. Beautiful clear golden. White head. Sticky lace. Fruity. Banana. Lemon. Peppery. Medium body. Yeast forward. Clean. Wheat. No booze. A bit too fruity/banana than Iím caring for, but nonetheless a very well-made beer.

Hopmaestro (1097) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2015
Aroma is soft peaches, a little yeast, smooth malt and a tad of citrus. Taste is surprisingly fruity and fresh, smooth mouthfeel even if itís quite carbonated. Low bitterness leaves you with a pleasant and quite long aftertaste from citrus and a faint tartness. Excellent take on the style

On tap, poured a lightly hazy golden hue w/ a medium white head. Big Belgian yeast and malty aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are apricot, straw, white wine, cloves, light banana, and crackers. Dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
