COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The success of HOG HEAVEN and THE REVEREND clearly demonstrates that beer drinkers are willing to embrace "BIGGER" beers. In the fall of 2001, we decided that a lighter BIG BEER would complement its darker colored predecessors. Salvation has luscious apricot and peach aromas delicately interwoven with spicy suggestions of nutmeg and cinnamon. This heavenly soft, champagne-like elixir is cellarable for 3 years.

Sampler at Avery’s. Appearance: large white head, excellent lacing, yellow. Aroma: bread, Brett, floral, light vinegar. Palate: light body, sparkling texture, lively carbonation. Taste: heavy sweetness and light tartness. Overall, not the most unique beer, but very sturdy for the style and worth having every so often.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. I have had this beer multiple times, I am surprised that this is the first I have rated it. Caramel, estery/fruity, oxidized cardboard notes, slight mango. There is a sweet maltiness with a dry finish.

Avery very rarely disappoints, it hasn't happened to me. This is a fruity, well balanced golden ale with a pleasant palate. Very much worth trying.
