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.

skaughty (647) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2004 Pours straight orange with minimal, but laced head. Floral aroma with apricot noted, almost to the point of perfume. This comes through also in the flavor. Hello Candi Sugar! Smooth sipping, leading to semi-dry in the finish. Only gripe is the flavor didn't seem properly blended, as the floral aroma almost dominated the maltiness in the flavor.

Wow, this is an interesting beer! The nose was unusual to me, but still complex. I seriously get a vinager(ish) scent to it, like that in BBQ! But there is also light nuts and honey, maybe apricot too. And that was just the aroma! The taste sorta put me off at first. Luckly, the beer was recused by its palate. Hoppy with a decent amount of malt balance in the linger. The alcohol is very prominate.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy orange color with no head. Looks more like apple juice than a beer. Has a fruity aroma. Flavor of hops, sugar, and yeast with a light palate.

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€‘
