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.

Orange. Very nice aroma of ripe, dripping apricots, citrus fruits, sweet malt and sugars. Sugary as hell in the flavor yet not cloying. Big, bursting fruity flavor with notes of tangerine, apricot, grapefruit and orange. Medium bodied but silky and smooth. A delightful beer.

Pretty good. This was my first tasting of a Belgian Style beer. It went down easily and gave me a nice buzz. The taste was good, but a bit too sweet for me. It had a champagne like quality which I donít really want in a beer. Good quality beer though.

This one has several different flavors pounding on your tongue: sweet, bitter, fruity, and spicy. All combine in the finish to give you a warm feeling and enough CO2 to give you a good olí belch.

Somewhat hazy amber-orange brew with a touch of biege foam.Nose is splendid,with notes of hops,bananas and some other fruit :citrus.This is a wonderful brew to enjoy with your nose.Nice ,not sweet as I thought this might be,the hops and fruits work off each other nicely.Good body and lingering taste.

DocLock (9998) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2004
On draft at the Drafting Room, Spring House, PA. Deep gold pour with medium white head and great lace. Aroma of malt, hopcit, fruit (apricot and peach), perfume. Tastes malty, fruity, rich, with hopcit, some candi sugar. Very complex and nicely balanced. Very solid, rich, smooth finish with some Belgian ale.tripel qualities. This one is just delicious. I havenít had the bottled version, but the draft kicks major ass.

TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2004
More garlic dinner smells. Rating below mentions soy, i agree. First sip took me off guard as i didnt know it was 9%. Several herb flavors and bitterness in the body, but more subdued than the Reverend. Some wine like flavors and characteristics come through: vinous, alcohol burn. Light fruit flavors in the finish.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 11, 2004
Kind of a strange beer; I didnít really pick up many Belgian characteristics, but there are a medley of aromas and flavors. Had some of the same aroma characteristics as the Kaiser which I tried the other day- namely, honey and soy, and there were also almond and golden raisin notes in this beer. Flavor was toasty, bready, and very yeasty (earthy) with golden raisins, alcohol, and caramel mingling with spices. Indeed a big "light" beer. However, the parts didnít quite mesh into a "whole." My gestalt rules the day.

jigglyjock (165) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2005 Aroma is not powerful, gives off slight fruit, hoppy sent. Head was small but it was thick and creammy. Interesting flavor. Starts with intence hopps and a slight finish of apples, pineapple, and pear. Little too hoppy but the aftertaste makes up for it by not lasting too long. Wish the taste lingered in my mouth longer (lack of body).

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Clear golden amber color with a moderate egg shell white head. Flowery mint leaf aroma. Flavor is moderately complex with mint leaf, a touch of honey, some light lemon with a lingering mouth watering spicy dry aftertaste. Palate is smooth and creamy. Interesting, but not my favorite flavor combo.
