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.

Appearance is cloudy golden with creamy white foam cap. Aroma is typical clove from Belgian yeast, with hints of apricot. As it warms a bready malt note stands out. Taste is sweet, rich malt gives way to slight hint of apricot, and a bit of nutmeg. Mouthfeel is medium to light, with slight hop bitterness on the finish to balance out. Overall, good example of the style

Excellent aroma. Oranges, yet the alcohol smell is strong and quite nice. The look is ok. Standard filtered weisse. Taste is unique for a Weisse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tdmuel (250) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Pour is a clear golden/straw color with a small off white head. Lots of alcohol on the nose, nice estery belgian yeast smell, spicy, bananas, and a touch of citrus. Taste is quite malty and fairly light for the style and what the nose led me to believe. Slightly peppery and spicy, nice belgian yeast esters, and hints of banana and grape. Might be a bad bottle, but this is nothing like I remember it.

Darwenus (485) - Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2013
A very cloudy grapefruit juice color with a creamy head that clings to the glass. The aroma is big and sweet and fruity. Lots of bananas and spice, and some buttery malt. The flavor changed as I got used to it and as it warmed. It started out sweet and rich, but the heat from the 9% ABV came on strong by half way through the glass. It never got old, though. I enjoyed it.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2013
A- Pours a golden amber with red hues. 2 finger bone white head slowly sink into a thin collar. Speckled lacing. S - Lemon citrus hops, bubblegum yeast, spices, wheat. Grassy hops. T - Lemony tartness, spicy Belgian yeast, green pears, grassy wheat all on top of a solid candied pale malt. Moderate hops wraps around, takes hold, and compliments the flavors well. M - Full bodied, creamy, moderate carbonation. The citrus tartness cuts out the sweetness. Good creamy characters. Alcohol is hidden well. A solid drinker. Serving type: on-tap 01-03-2011

Fritz123 (783) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2013
750ml bottle from Total WIne in Boca Raton. Snifter. Pours an extreme cloudy, orange brown with thin white head. Aoma of sweet fruits such as apricots, orange, pears. Also picking up bread and cereals. The taste was powered by the sweet fruits, malts, and somewhat balanced by the hops. My problem is it comes across too fruity and sweet. Mouth is smooth with yeast aftertaste. Mediocre at best.
