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.

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

SpringsLicker (3164) - 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.

I was somewhat excited to try this beer, but disappointed with the taste. It smelled pretty good and the appearance was nice, but the taste was just too alcoholic. I would say if that was toned down a bit, this would be an above average beer.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2004
Draught somewhere in Chicago: This is a nice refreshing beer. Lambic/champagne finish and very fruity. A pleasure to drink in the hot humid Chicago summer weather.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Lightly hazy golden blond color with lots of carbonation and creamy thick head. Lacing is full and complete. The aroma is very earthy and spicy with some notes of yeast and a little hops. The flavor has a moderate alcohol feel along with a good malty yeast body. Some more spices are apparent in the flavor and it has that dry cinnamon feel, earthy. The finish is lightly hoppy, semisweet, dry. This is a unique BSA but it’s not too bad.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2005 Clear copper color with smallish sized white head. Very mild for a Belgian Strong where upon the taste is more malty than yeasty. A lot of funky flavors going on here and most are hidden behind the big alcohol flavor. Tastes more like a barleywine than a Belgian.

Dorwart (2382) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Decent head from the pour. Low carbonation. Great aroma. Peaches, yeast, spices, its all in there. Color is a slightly hazy golden ornage. Soft flavor, slightly sweet with more spices, light fruit, decent malt balance. Crisp and clean and very easy drinking. Finish is slightly bitter and warming from the alcohol. This is some good stuff. Surprised that it is not rated higher. A very good belgian ale!
