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.

Indra (2619) - 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 (8032) - 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.

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.

Pale amber, small head. Sweet aroma & taste; almost sugary. Nice!! Fruits of all kinds are apparent: Apple, grape, grapefruit, peach, nectarine. Complex and wonderful.

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) - Sisters, 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

Clear,light amber color. Malty sweet flavor. I can taste the fruits- peach somewhat. Light on the spices.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2003
A pellucid amber color on the pour, the head immoderate in size, spumescent in texture, and the color a light tan and as it vanishes a thick glutinous sheet survives to conceal the glass. Big malt nose, citrus crisp and fresh, quite pleasing to the senses and the start thickly sweet malt, top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish has a spicy hop bite that pleases the palate, the acidity moderate to mild, the aftertaste droughty, and in my humble opinion another winner from Avery.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2003
Pretty sweet, but not nearly as I might have supposed. I think this beer is this good because of the amalgam of Styrian Goldings (imparting an Englishy or Germanic quality) and candi sugar. Quite good. Great body. Alcohol gets stronger upon warming, as you might suppose.

Medium orange color. Medium head. Aroma is fruity, touches of apricot and peach. A fuller bodied Belgian Ale. Sweet and fruity; peaches, apricots, pineapple, sweet malts and vanilla. Very fizzy carbonation. Touch of candy sugars? Hops are very prominent, floral and citrusy. Very hoppy for a Belgian Ale, but it seems to work somehow. Very smooth taste, hides the 9% alcohol very well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.
