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.

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...

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2004
Bottle pours a crystal copper color with a small head and little lace. The aroma is very yeasty, with hints of apricot. The flavor is mostly bread like, some apricot notes, and rather dry with some faint hop bitterness. In addition, I'm not sure if this is hop related, but there is a lingering tobacco flavor that distracts. The palate is decent. Overall, a fairly average effort.

1more4dessert (330) - Upstate, New York, USA - APR 26, 2004
on tap at Elmer Sudd's, orange color, small head, a little on the sweet side with the peach/apricot nectar notes dominating. A good desert beer, but a little is enough

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2004
Clear golden body with a minimal white head. The aroma is sweet honey and yeast. The flavor is quite fruity and complex. The lingering aftertaste is that of honey dipped peaches. Full body with a lively carbonation. Pretty good stuff.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2004
I had a bottle of this for Easter dinner, 2004--theologically appropriate, I think. Lovely golden-amber color, not much head, apparent stickiness as it swirls. Big beer, definitely. Bright aroma of sugar, honey, citrus, alcohol. Lots of malts in the flavors but just as much spiciness, apparently from a combination of the alcohol and hops. Plenty of fruitiness, especially at the colder temperatures, with the quality fading with the temperature. Hoppy bitterness in finish. Big flavors, attractive at times, and yet disconcerting.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAR 31, 2004
Had an aroma and taste of foot after initial pour. Not very good. Mildly hoppy and semi sweet. Decent but I won't try again.

Tastes like it is straight from Belgium. Has a nice ginger flavor in front that finshes slightly dry.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2004
This beer looks very nice. It is clear and golden and alomst glows a bit. It smells sweet, with some carmel malt tones and a faint hint of yeast. The taste was somewhat sour at first. It was not great initially, but I warmed up to it about mid glass. Carmel malt was more pronounced at this point.
