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.

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 (5259) - 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.

GABF '02 Deep golden,with a slight haze.Yeast and fruity esters comes through nicely in the aroma along with a touch of alcohol.Malty earthy flavors dominate the profile.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - JUN 20, 2003
Apricot colored brew with a huge densely packed head of white bubbles. Nose is yeasty with drunken fruity notes. Flavor is reminiscent of fruit such as peaches and apricots that have been soaking in grain alcohol. The prominent alcohol is certainly distracting.Medium full body with a pleasant creaminess. Finishes with a lingering sweetness.

omhper (19950) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2003
Bottled. Orange coloured and lightly hazy. Aroma of almond and honey. Salty, malty, soft, complex and woody. More bitter than most belgian style ales.

gwfrankpsu (231) - McKinleyville, California, USA - JUN 9, 2003
Golden with great lace - earthy aroma and a great bit. This would be great with Thai or even Mexican. Even works with chocolate.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - JUN 7, 2003
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 (1425) - 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 (1014) - 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.
