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 brewmasters 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.

Editors Note: this entry is for all batches EXCEPT batches 23, 46 and 69 see separate entry.

Ok, following two Michelob products, this feels like heaven. Bottle, split with NachlamSie and Tronraner. Pours a pale straw/blond color with some floaties, and a fluffy white head. Excellent lacing. The aroma is sweet malts, with lots of ripe fruit, a hint of a sourness, and a mild spiciness. The flavor is much like the aroma leads on. Very nice juicy fruit, especially pear, sweet malt, and an earthy, yet spicy finish.

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2006
0.75L bottle. Clear golden color with thin white head. Im having a tough time getting an aroma. A really faint sweet and tartness is Ill I can get before I start sucking beer down my nose. Nice light initially fruity flavor. Also some honey and lime. Pleasant mix of flavors makes this very drinkable and enjoyable to the last ounce is consumed.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2006
750ML bottle via Vinnie at Russian River(thanks!). Pours a semi hazy golden blonde with a large chunk white head. Nose is fruity/spicey with notes of bananna, pear, peaches, strawberries, and wheat. Flavor is the same with a sourish bitter dry chalky finish. A bit too much hoppiness for the style...Medium body. An ok beer, but i was expecting much better from RR....

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2010 Golden with a lasting white head. Fruity and spicy aroma with pepper and pineapple dominating. REALLY well used Belgian yeast here... Dry and spicy flavour with herbal hops. Like an even slightly tastier Delirium Tremens...
