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.

10/9/13: 2002 Salvation on tap at Avery during GABF weekend. Pours a hazy orange with very fine off white head. Decent retention and some thin lacing. Aroma is fruity, sweet, floral, sweet, caramel malt. Flavor is sweet, malty, fruity, with a yeasty, toffee finish. Having a hard time identifying all the flavors, reminds me of aged barleywine. Alcohol is very well masked and the flavors rounded from the aging. Soft carbonation, medium body, very smooth. Even better than fresh Salvation. I have changed my score to reflect an average between the two experiences.

10/5/13: Bottle. Pours a hazy bright orange with bright white head. Decent retention, plenty of lacing. Aroma is fruity, apricot, alcohol, yeasty. Flavor is fruity, sweet, apricot, peach, yeasty, with a yeasty, floral sweet finish, mild alcohol. Alcohol is well masked, though certainly present. Soft carbonation, medium body, and crisp finish. A sweet, fruity, strong belgian.

swesson (264) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2013
An Abbey Ale in the Belgium tradition, this beer reminds me of my first Duvel or Chimay. Foamy, foamy head. Notes of cinnamon and lemon. This is a white wine, a big white, like a chewy, oaky Chardonnay of a beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (22 oz). Clear golden with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is phenolic with candi sugar, Belgian yeast, sugar, light fruity notes, malt and light hops. Taste is moderately sweet with yeast, candi sugar and light bitterness. Light boozyness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Correct Belgian Strong Ale who look like a Tripel in many ways. Drinkable.
