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.

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 (2370) - 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!

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAY 26, 2004
I was expecting a good beer, but not this good! Very malty flavor seems very German in nature, though there is a very modest amount of spiciness to slightly trigger that Belgian sensor; Fairly sweet with some honey flavor, only mildly bitter, and the alcohol is hidden quite well; Exceptional, malty aroma is similar to a German doppelbock; Dark golden color is bordering on apricot; Fairly heavy and sticky mouthfeel; Slightly hazy, though that's because the significant sediment remained undisturbed on the bottom of the bottle; Almost no carbonation bubbles rising through the beer, so the off-white head settles to a thin layer fairly quickly

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a thin white head. Sweet caramely bready Belgian yeast aroma has a touch of light fruity coriander spice. Starts semi-sweet and thick turning more dry and spiced toward the finish with some apple juice character. Reminiscent of a double wit, with more of a citrus yeasty profile. A decent Belgian strong, but could use some more balance between the spice and malt.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2004
What a nice label, great start... Poured a cloudy burnt orange color with a small head. Some lacing, nothing much here. Aroma of apricot and slight spice. Fruit forward in the taste. Nice tingly bubbles and medium mouthfeel. Very nice

Glowing hazy apricot color with a creamy off-white head. Sweet caramel, belgian candy sugar, apricot and spice aroma. Nice sweet belgian candy sugar, apricot, honey, and floral flavors with some hops in the finish. Soft feel, nice tiny bubbles.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Beautiful cloudy, glowing, orange color with a medium-sized off-white head. The aroma was full of spicy, floral, apricot, peach, and yeasty tones. The flavor was quite sweet up front with a big apricot and yeasty character and some hops bitterness in the aftertaste. The feel was soft and thick, with a tingling on the tongue...semi-wet finish.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Pours out of a bomber yellowish orange with a very light yellow head. Very fruiy aroma of mixed dried fruit. Flavor is malty thick with dried fruits and a touch of bandaid that fades. Very thick and smooth. Warming, decent, but maybe a little much for one person, yet great for three...
