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.

Pour from 375ml, bottled 5/29/2013. Pours an appealing straw color with a slight hazyness and a foamy white head that quickly subsides. Most pronounced aromas are a Belgian yeasty-quality and a moderate amount of banana. Medium sweetness and a hint of sour/bitter on the finish.

Bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks Jon! Pours a lightly hazy yellow with a one-finger head of foam that lingers throughout. Banana cream pie nose with some light pear and green apple aromas with some light grass. Malt-forward on the palate with some nice Belgian yeast action morphing throughout. Easy drinking and hides the ABV very well. Siky, creamy finish.

jc1762 (384) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 18, 2015
Poured into a wine glass showing neon yellow with a finger of clean white foam and moderate filtration. The nose shows a rich creaminess. The palate is moderately carbonated and full bodied. A light residual sugar sweetness throws throughout matching with the creamy aroma. Belgian yeast notes throughout. Perfect sweetness and can see how this works really well.

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

tightslice (596) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle from Dry Creek General Store in Healdsburg, CA. Aroma is banana, fruity yeast esters, mild white wine. Creamy mouthfeel with sweet / spiced flavors. Great American take on a Golden Belgian Beauty.

AgentAle (1236) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
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 I’m caring for, but nonetheless a very well-made beer.
