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.

Terminus (3242) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 11, 2004
22 oz bottle-pours a bright orange hue with a nice big-bubble slightly off-white head. big sweet, candy sugar aroma-big banana. The flavors are like that of a belgian tripple-lots of sweetness, banana, yeast esters. very complex, but not all that well balanced. I got a peppery note in the finish. This beer is just too sweet for me to drink again. After i poured the yeast into the chimay glass, there was a bigger banana aroma going on. Avery did a good job here, just tone down the sugary sweetness and this is a find BSA.

Golden/orange in color with a medium sized white head. Smells of apricots and spice. Tastes very sweet with a hint of apricot.

Shag (2607) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Golden appearance with a moderate head. The flavor is very acidic like heartburn in a bottle. A very sour flavor is present. Lemons and more lemons. More decent stuff from Avery.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Nice cloudy golden color,medium sized head that lasted for some time and then slowly fading to a decent lace.The aroma was fruity and spicey with a decent flavor of light malt but mostly fruit and spice coming through as well as a mild hop taste towards the end.Not a bad brew but not exactly what i’m looking for eather.Decent enough to try again though in the distant future.

Nice orangy color with hints of copper. Smells of fresh citrus and a peachy hint. Soft fruity sweetness....a little fizzy and would go well with a light chicken or pasta dish. Good sweet beer to introduce to a girl friend...use like champagne.

Candi suagr and flowers. Good, deep golden. Doughy, yeasty sweet with clean floral finish like eating a daisy. Not complex.

This is a good Belgian Strong ALe. Spicy, malty, and citric flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and bitter.

Bottle. pours copper and slightly hazy with a thick white head. apricot is the dominant aroma. flavor is surprisingly refreshing. has a grape and spice flavor that finishes hoppy.

SpringsLicker (3145) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Bottle at Brewtopia ’04. Little head above a clear, deep yellow body. Hop aroma is a little much for the style. The flavor is spicy, playing between clove, corriander and orange in the background. O.K., but not hitting the mark dead on.

Brewtopia’04. Another mild smelling Avery beer, some peachy fruitiness, a bit nutty. Uninspired flavor, grapeskin, slight spice(savory), not enough alcohol presence IMO. Sort of briney. Kind of flowery/hoppy.
