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 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.

Mep3222 (539) - 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

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.

GenDV138 (1620) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2014
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.
