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.

Straw-gold with a big, dense white head that lasts a long time and leaves fairly good lace. The aroma is rich, fruity, and flowery. It’s definitely Belgian-ale aroma but a bit more complex hoppy. The taste is similar with grain, hints of spice, nuts, pears, and honey.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2016 Thanks to VanJamer for this one! Pours a clear light golden with a small white head that leaves really good lacing. Nose is of alcohol, pepper, citrus. A bit tame overall but I prefer that over a big burst of burning alcohol. Taste doesn’t feel sweet almost and is moderately bitter. More pepper and some nice lemony fruits. Not too much alcohol to be felt again here. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderately high. Some bitter alcohol kick but almost no hotness. A fine "tripel light", I can see myself sipping on this when it is time to cool off.

Bottle, 33cl. Hazy orangeish with a frothy ofwhite head. Musky, complex fruity and alcohol aromas. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Dry and oily. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Stinging bitter fruity character into a similar finish. Very pleasant.

Percy0103 (545) - MEXICO - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle, 375ml. A clear golden beer with a medium size white head. Aroma is of citrics, Belgian yeast and a hint of alcohol. Taste is bitter with a citrus finish and some hints of pine. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation and some astringency. Nice beer, but I expected a beer I’ll happily be damned for.

Caged/corked bottle into Trappist glass, cloudy golden color with white head. Aroma notes of Belgian yeast, banana, clove, citrus zest and tad white pepper. Taste adds more white fruits (pears, apricot, some peach), biscuity malt, yeast spiciness and tad herbal. Medium body, moderate-low carbonation, lively, dry with nice fruity citrus finish. Nice solid Tripel given to me as a gift.

copestx (62) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle. Cappuccino froth head, aroma of banana peel and clove, taste of banana and fruity Belgian yeast. Super well-balanced, not too sweet. Classic take on a classic Belgian style.

BlackHaddock (5849) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
On tap in the Encinitas Ale House on 7th May 2016. Golden amber pour, full white foaming blanket on top. Mild malty nose with a yeasty, spicy note or two. Taste is a combination of those malts, yeast and spices from the aroma combined with a citrus twist and woody flavours, very pleasant.

Biroholik (720) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - MAY 4, 2016
Draught @ Russian River Brewing, Santa Rosa, California (20.04.2016)
Golden Ale 7,75% alk. 16,5 BLG
Jasny, słomkowy kolor. Super-klarowny. W aromacie i smaku belgijskie drożdże, przyprawowe fenole, banany, lekkie cytrusy. SUPER MOCNY goździk! Na drugim planie silna zbożowość przełamna nutami cytryny i limonki. Średnie ciało, owocowy/bananowy bukiet, wytrawny przyprawowy finisz. Ciekawy trunek zainspirowany piwem Duvel i innymi słynnymi Belgian Strong Ales.

On tap at Russian River Brewing in Santa Rosa, CA-USA. Clear gold color, a bit shy. Decent white foam. Nose: Belgian yeast, pears, rich spicy aroma. Mouth: mirrors the nose, exciting Belgian character, reinterpreted I think. Dry/bitter finish. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dégustée en compagnie de Marc-André, cet hommage aux bières belges ne saurait être plus juste. Un liquide blond à l’allure riche et granuleuse fourbu d’une tête blanche comme neige et bien mousseuse. Un nez de levures belges à tromper un belge lui-même sur l’origine de cette bière! Quelques houblons floraux, un malt léger et un sucre résiduel important. Un corps ample vecteur de saveurs européennes. Une Belgian Ale américaine des mieux réussies!
