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.

Bottle from a trade here on RB. Fruit flavors really meld well with the Beligan yeast.

I get typical spicy yeasty bananaie aroma from this hazy golden ale with a nice white head. I get crisp at first then yeasty deliciousness with a slight alcohol feel. Its a medium bodied brew worth a try for sure.

degbert (1105) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy clear gold with a high, large-grained, lacy soft off-white head. Nose is honey, stone fruit, rose, geranium, and tropical fruit. Lightly sweet on the palate, with more honey, floral, and fruit notes, offset by a earthy or sandy undertone; a very nice balance. Finish is long, fruity, and drier. Really, really nice, and nowhere near as over the top as the name would portend.

Cloudy yellow fast dissapating head. Aroma of fresh barley, slight wheat. Tastes buttery, fresh yeast, wheat, sweet. Pretty refreshing for a strong.

Golden clear strong,,,slight aplle but the pear flavor put this over the top on greatness. Slight earthy hops and some oak....dont know if it was aged in oak but a really nice character. Something you would drink on the polo ground with the rich and famous.

Hefig trockener Antrunk, mild, nicht sonderlich intensiv. Trockener Antrunk, helles Malz, langweilig. Zum Ende Pfirsich, nicht so mehr so trocken. Ok. 10/8/8/9//9

sailracer (399) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a medium gold. Mild candy sugar flavors typical of a Belgian style with slight banana esters. Nothing really stood out as exceptionally good or bad on this one.
