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.

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

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.

Delicious. Clearly inspired by the better Belgians. Always a solid bet - would compare with Ommegang when in the mood for an American Belgian-style

Defreni (2601) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Fad: Taster på brewpub. Lysegul pilsnergul klar øl med et flot skumhoved. Duft af belgisk trippel med en smule alkohol, men også meget frisk. Meget drikbar og meget lækker i sit udtryk. Helt klart en jeg gerne ville have haft en pint af, en der var bare så mange gode øl disse to dage.

5/2014 bottle. Haven’t had one in a while -- these used to be pretty regularly available down here but no mas. Shame too cuz it’s a damn fine beer. Beautiful in the glass with lively, delicate carb. Banana and pear on the nose as promised, Belgian-style malts too. Taste is slightly sweet, mouthfeel is very smooth / rich / full. Not my favorite style but an excellent American example.

Berard (291) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours murky light yellow with thin white head that lingers. The wheat aroma is a turn off for me but the taste is smooth and balanced. It's a style I typically avoid but this one is solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow! Soft fruity aroma, bananas and pears, cloudy golden with small finely beaded head. Tingles on the tongue, carbonation and alcohol warmth. Light overall, but taste is complex. Slight tart citrus finish.
