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.

Copper color with a small head that left good lacing on the glass. Sweet, fruity nose dominated by honey and peaches. Spices and fruits in the taste with a sweet malt finish. Nice carbonation produces a smooth and lively sampling. (beautiful label, too)

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2003 This fantastic beer was acquired in trade with Andrew196. This Avery Salvation is really great stuff. If I had not gotten into a quarrel with my girlfriend right after I opened the 22oz bottle it would have been even better.
** The appearance was a glowing coppery orange color, with a small fizzy white head, and a nice light lacing. The aroma is awesome, reminds me of canned mandarin oranges, guava, mango, and pineapple, very tropical, a tropical salvation. Not surprisingly, the flavor is citric, sweet, slightly dry finish, a great overall balance. I would really love to acquire another bottle of this beer, first-rate stuff!

sloth (2454) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Clean white, tight beaded head, splotchy lacing. Hazey orange color. Big, spicey, appley, citrus nose! sweet. Medium body with a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Kinda soda poppy also? Citrusy, bready flavor. Nice hop presence. Finish is med/dry. The alc. also makes itself known. Avery makes some interesting brews.

Bottle. First, if you don't give this beer a 5 for appearance, you never will give anything a 5 for appearance: the illuminated scene on the bottle is incredible, the beer is a super clear, intense light honey gold, and the foam hangs on the sides of the glass like Spanish moss hangs on a tree. Nice buttery, fruity, yeast and slight vinegar aroma. The alcohol is certainly noticable, but it's complemented by the fruit and spice flavors and the starchy mouthfeel. Moderate alcohol and spice burn to the finish. I'm currently quaffing this one with a pressed Cuban sandwich with seedy brown mustard, and it's doing the trick for me. Very good.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 Hoppy oranges and yeast scrape the lining of a mango peel...Burlesque, unripe honeyed bananas are tangled with candied apricots and herbal, green hop bitterness...The silky, creamy feel leads to an unforeseen alcohol bitterness...Reminds me of Dieu du Ciel’s Dernière Volonté...

Trappist (284) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Very flavorfull. Nice rich aroma, with a nicely balanced hoppiness. This is nice and light on the palate and could be enjoyed in the summer and winter. Nutmeg and cinnamon were noticed, and it has a nice deep golden color, this is a very good brew.

Suttree (5050) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 23, 2003
Fruity Vanilla aroma, which is very enticing. Dark Gold, no head Clean crisp, with all those familiar "Belgian" Flavors - Musty, fruity sweetness, toffee - right up against several American Pale flavors - resiny pine hops, citrus flavors in the finish. This is a cool style buster and a pretty good beer.
