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.

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.

Bottle to tulip. Welcome back to CA Avery!! Aroma of sweet bread, perfume and fruity esters. Pours a hazy sunset orange with white head that leaves slight lacing and dusting across the top. Taste is fruity esters, bread, orange and late spice from the yeast. Semi-dry finish.

Tap at brewery. Pours clear yellow/gold with fizzy white head. Aroma is cereal and bready malts, light toast, Belgian yeast, candy sugar, floral notes, and light fruit. Flavor is bready malts, light booze, Belgian yeast, floral notes, and some light hop bitterness; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a thin, fizzy white head. Tastes malty, nutty, like citrus and bread. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like malt and orange citrus.

valpoaj (661) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Aged bottle from the cellar - pours a deep golden color with a robust white head. Aroma is full of yeast and tropical fruit, hint of booze as well, some spice mixed in. Flavor is very similar - loads of tropical fruit and belgian yeast, dougy, peppery spices. Palate was tart and somewhat puckery with lively carbonation. Interesting beer, but good!

Absolutely superb. Belgian yeast is perfectly plentiful. Love the fruity and spicy notes, and perhaps most of all the thick mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"very spicy aroma and flavor...i can taste many of the aspects of the Avery/Russian River collaberation in here, but each part is not quite as good as the sum...it’s like the two Salvation Ales completed each other to make "Collaberation Not Litigation. This one has a nice, clean fruity and spicy yeast profile though, and is quite tasty with a decent dose of hops as well. Pours a dark golden, one finger head that sticks around. Medium bodied and pretty smooth. Very dry finish. "

Pours clear orange with minimal white head. Aroma is spicy yeast and light grains. Taste follows nose. Tastes a lot better as it warms
