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.

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.

#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.

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.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Cloudy golden color with a medium size head...or more accurately, medium size head for a Belgian Strong. Has a somewhat pineish flavor. Not as complex as I'd hoped. Doesn't excite me.

Kinz (3286) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Medium to dark gold, OK head. Aroma of pineapple hops, I think this Belgian style beer will have some American traits. Sweetish malts meld into the fruity hops, definite pineapple again, along with some peach flavors. Some interesting bitterness on the finish. Good, unusual beer.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2003
A very good and recommended Belgian Strong Ale. A medium sized off-white head that was creamy and smooth with fine-small sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The body was slightly hazy and softly carbonated with an orange-golden hue. The nose was malty, fruity, banana, spicy, cinnamon and some clove notes. The flavor was malty, spicy and fruity with a smooth and slightly thin mouthfeel. This was a medium bodied beer with good lacing.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 31, 2003
This brew poured a large sized head of fine to medium sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated light brown colored body and a good lace. The aroma was mild with fruity malty doughy and floral notes. The mouthfeel was initially biting and yet it smoothened in the finsh. It had a fruity bannana apricot doughy malty flavor. A very nice brew that gave us a nice buzz.

carboloader (673) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Pours golden amber with medium-sized white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of fruity, citrusy hops. Flavor is same but also with considerable sweet sugary malt on the finish. With the added sugar, this one is too sweet for my taste. Borders on a medicine-like flavor on the finish with a syrupy mouth feel. Alcohol is evident.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2003
Hazy golden hue with a good frothy off-white head and very good lace. The aroma is very hoppy for a Belgian. Hints of floral hops, pine, peach, strawberry, barnyard, buttered biscuit, allspice, vanilla, and wet paper. The mouthfeel was very heavy as was the taste, syrupy. Tones of citrus and sweet malts up front. The finish had a piney and bitter quality with some acidic and spicy undertones. More twangy has it warms. Light alcoholic feel towards end of tasting. This is a very well made Belgain style brew which is far hoppier than expected. Good complexity and sublime notes. Recommended since I didn't find this extremely sweet at all.

Nice belgian style strong ale! Bottle. Pours golden orange color with a small white head that disappeared rapidly but left enough of a ring of around the edge to create some lacing. Aroma is fruity and yeasty like a delicious sweet fruit bread. Flavor is apricot, citrus, honey and spice - very nice. Mouthfeel is almost syurpy with a light carbonation. Another fine ale from the folks at Avery!
