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.

Hazy tiny burnt deep yellow pour with a frothy white head. Crackers, red pears and subtle but complex brett nose. Hay, minerals, dew and barnyard. Spicy and tiny fruity taste. Dry slightly sparkling mouthfeel. Simple but very much to the point. Plenty of estery fruits with a clean brett profile. Nice beer!
