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.

Draught @ Russian River Brewing, Santa Rosa, California (20.04.2016)
Golden Ale 7,75% alk. 16,5 BLG
Jasny, słomkowy kolor. Super-klarowny. W aromacie i smaku belgijskie drożdże, przyprawowe fenole, banany, lekkie cytrusy. SUPER MOCNY goździk! Na drugim planie silna zbożowość przełamna nutami cytryny i limonki. Średnie ciało, owocowy/bananowy bukiet, wytrawny przyprawowy finisz. Ciekawy trunek zainspirowany piwem Duvel i innymi słynnymi Belgian Strong Ales.

On tap at Russian River Brewing in Santa Rosa, CA-USA. Clear gold color, a bit shy. Decent white foam. Nose: Belgian yeast, pears, rich spicy aroma. Mouth: mirrors the nose, exciting Belgian character, reinterpreted I think. Dry/bitter finish. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yourilevesque (1794) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2016
Dguste en compagnie de Marc-Andr, cet hommage aux bires belges ne saurait tre plus juste. Un liquide blond lallure riche et granuleuse fourbu dune tte blanche comme neige et bien mousseuse. Un nez de levures belges tromper un belge lui-mme sur lorigine de cette bire! Quelques houblons floraux, un malt lger et un sucre rsiduel important. Un corps ample vecteur de saveurs europennes. Une Belgian Ale amricaine des mieux russies!

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 didnt quite blow my mind like some other RR beers.
