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.

Svesse (8006) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2006
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 6 Oct) Golden yellow colour with white head. Fruity nose, slightly acidic, with notes of tropical fruit and Anjou pears. Fruity, spicy taste with notes of pears and banana. Slightly fiery (goes with the name I suppose). Nice beer (and can I really resist a beer with the same name as an Opeth record? Probably not).

Poured a straw colored yellow with a whispy lacing white head. Very floral aroma, slightly bitter smelling. Slithgly malty, slightly bitter flavor. Fruity like pears and pineapple. Extremely bitter, acidic and astringent finish in the throat. Could have been better.

750ml - thanks Irishboy - Aroma is yeasty bubblegum and banana. Some earthy hop funkiness as well. Pours transparent gold with cascading bubbles and a huge head, great sticky lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a bit more grassy hoppiness. Palate is creamy, clean, and dry. I was initially not too impressed, but as I kept drinking it, the complexity and depth began to show changing my aroma and flavor scores. A nice brew.

jimvy (131) - OFallon, Missouri, USA - OCT 2, 2006
GABF 2006. Clear blonde color, tight white head. Aroma - slight DMS, not much else. Flavor - typical tripel flavors are prominent, but more smooth than expected. Not as pleasing overall. Not a great beer. DMS detracts; otherwise decent.
