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.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - MAR 13, 2004
Apricot-colored with a medium rocky white head. Fruity, spicy, yeasty, straw aroma. Golden amber in colour. Flavor is citric, fruity, malty and sweet. Sharp, strong mouthfeel. Fun and tasty.

Was looking for true salvation. Got some salivation going, but as much as I admire Avery, and I do, I wasn't bowled over by this. Does one NEED to be? No. Twas rather good, malty, complex, and more, but guess I was searching for a boarding pass to Belgium and all I got was a very good beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2004
22 oz bottle, tulip glass. Toast grain/light bread malt (L); perfume and flower hops (M); doughy yesat (L); nutmeg aroma. Clear golden-peach body has a large, creamy white head that is slowly diminishing. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic flavor becomes a moderately bitter, lightly sweet, lightly acidic finish. Medium-heavy body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: fourth bottle of Avery in a row that has wowed me.

I liked this better than Reverand. Not overly sweet, with some spices and fruit notes, tasted some hop bitterness in there too.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2004
Floral smell, sweet and citrusy. Color is orange with a little lace of head. Flavor is indeed delightful. Bananna, yeast, and some general citrus flavors.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2004
Orange cloudy with a nice head and lacing. Malty nose with some fruity hops and a faint apricot aroma. Start is smooth and malty with a good fruity hop bite. Finish is hoppy and acidic. Very drinkable for 9%. A dangerously good strong ale.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2004
Golden hay beneath a thin, but persistent white head. Sweet, fruity aroma of tart apples, oranges, yeasty bread, honey, whole grains, light hops and a touch of alcohol. The body is moderately full and fairly sticky. Nice flavors when drinking. Good fruit and nice honey/sugar sweetness. The finish is quite bitter and more than I would have expected. A flavorful Belgian with good fruits, but a,F€‘

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2004
Pours a deep golden amber with lots of egg white head foaming on the rim. The aroma is very sweet and floral. The flavor is rich and sweet with lots of honey and candi sugars. Little bits of bubblegum flavor and clove arive as it warms up. Very spicy and very complex, this is a very strong and full bodied Belgian, that is very enjoyable.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2004
#500!! Pours a rich amber color, slightly bronzed. Thin head and little lacing. Aromas of wheat, malt, some honey and citrus hops. Probably sweet orange peels. Nice floral characters as well. Complex flavors. Hops and coriander or clove come out right at the beginning. This leads into a mellow and smooth maltiness that lasts until some bittering hops finish it all off. Fruits are abundant, more orange, some sweet and some bitter. Hints of banana and bubblegum tease as well. Full body, tangy and spice filled palate, and a nice complex finish of fruits, spice and hops. Definately a delectable Belgian. Not the best, but I think it was damn good.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2004
Rich golden orange body with a fading white head. Essence of flowers, fruit, honey. Complex blend of fruit and spice in the taste. Good stuff.
