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.

yourilevesque (1071) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2016
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!

Bottle in line at the MBC Dinner release. Solid Belgian golden ale, with flavors of light malt, floral hops, and yeast spiciness. Really refreshing, although it didn’t quite blow my mind like some other RR beers.

Citrus, spice, herbal and hop aroma. Pours hazy gold with plenty of carbonation and a large soft white head with excellent retention. Yeast esters, molasses, hard candy, spice, hops, brown sugar, Orange, woody and malty flavors that leave a nice after burn and a smooth silky feel.

jsporrer (416) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a pale straw yellow with a thin white ring. Light carbonation. Aroma of tart, tangy, bready yeast. Smooth, clean and crisp with notes of yeast, some spice and a slightly dry finish. Flavors don’t linger very long. Reminds me of a Weizenbier or a Witbier. Ok but not worth $11.50 a bottle.
