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.

Pretty good for a golden ale. I like it better than Pranqster. Nice lace with somewhat lingering head.n I don't think the spiciness is overdone. It's noticable, but enjoyable.

TChrome (1399) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Nice domestic belgian style. Has a nice yeast flavor. Pours golden with some a medium head which totally dissipates. Fairly heavy lacing. Flavor and palate are strong points. Good, but not quite in the same category as New Belgium.

WabashMan (1007) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2003
A lightly cloudy amberish orange color and small, thin, slightly off white head start this one. The aroma is nice, light and yeasty, with fruity notes as well. Flavor is also yeasty, with some spiciness to it. A nice Belgian Strong, but not one of the greats.

Indra (2570) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 11, 2003
Fruity, spicy, perfumy and honeyish aroma, with something like sparkling white grape juice, peach and golden apple, and a very slight earthiness. Golden amber in color, with a quickly fading head and low visible effervescence. Flavor is fruity, citric, malty and sweet, with some definite spices and pepper in the background. Finish sees the addition of some acidity and bitterness, also apparent alcohol. Fruity aftertaste. Pretty good but probably could have used another 18 months in the cellar.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2003
UPDATED: APR 6, 2011 Very floral aroma, nice and estery, with cherries and spearmint aromas. Clear clean gold appearance. The flavor is at first vbery pleasent, and is very calm. It turns to very strong alcohol, acidic flavors. The finish is very smooth and fresh, with minimal bitter bite.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2003
hazy golden body, tight creamy soft white head, lots of fast rising bubbles. Fruity and sweet. Light phenols and esters, grapefruits and a hint of spice. Some sweet maltyiness emerges as well as a hint of citrus, maybe peaches frozen in orange juice like my mom made when I was little. A bit of an alcohol kick, classic bitter yeastiness follows a dry, astringent sensation. The yeast contributes significantly, but the hop bitters and decent malt complexity help balance. the candy sugar is an interesting touch.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAY 6, 2003
Pale amber, small head. Sweet aroma & taste; almost sugary. Nice!! Fruits of all kinds are apparent: Apple, grape, grapefruit, peach, nectarine. Complex and wonderful.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAY 2, 2003
Another potentially good brew ruined by overuse of spices. I know a lot of folks like this, but there are examples of Belgian Golden Ale (Pranqster) that keep the spice notes subtle enough to enhance the flavor without crossing over to being obnoxious, which is the case here. Ended up pouring this out, which is sad since it cost so %^^& much.

Zach Diesel (906) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2003
floral yeasty aroma, cloudy and beautiful, alcohol then sweet and syrupy that meld into high pitched hops and a soft bitter palate

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2003
Clear,light amber color. Malty sweet flavor. I can taste the fruits- peach somewhat. Light on the spices.
