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.

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2006
Bottle at Kookfest 2006. Gold with lasting off white head. Aroma of a Belgian Ale, some tangerine, bit metallic. Belgian triple style beer with sweetish, sticky notes. Hides the alcohol pretty well, but carbonated and metallic. I thought it was ok.

yngwie (14010) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2009
Bottle, 22oz. A hazy, orange beer with some microfloaties and a small, off-white head. Sweet, syrupy nose, a bit herbal, with peaches in the background. Sugary sweet flavor with a good dash of fruits, some herbal notes and an evident but pleasant alcohol warmth. Full-bodied, sweetish mouthfeel. Lasting finish with sweetness, fruits, some herbs and alcohol. A quite pleasant beer, not impressing, easy drinkable but maybe a bit on the sweet side. (090213)

Bottle at Københavnske Øldage 2007. Clear golden - white head. Sweetness, honey, flowery, licorice, nice hoppy, bitter/sweet finish. And the typical american hop-tastes..

MiP (13774) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2007
Bottle at KØ07. Weak, but good, sweetish hop aroma. Clear golden colour, small white head. Very malty flavour, in perfect balance with pepper and alcohol notes. Caramelly flavour also going well with the alcohol. This is really good.

TBone (12989) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2008
(Bottled 1 Pint 6 Fl. Oz, BB 11/2009). Hazy orange-amber color, small steady off-white head. Apricot, peach and spices in the fruity nose. Very sweet fruity-yeasty flavor - apricot, peach, banana and some spices. First thought was: "hmm .. this tastes very English" and sure, Styrian Goldings hops are used. Hops rise in the finish. Also Belgian style candy sugar sweetness. Aftertaste has some alcohol too and dry hoppy notes. Quite pleasant, just a bit too sugary, propably would be better after one or two years in the cellar.

Golden-brown colour. Fruity, chewy nose with light phenols. Hints of bubblegum on the palate, along with spicy notes and hints of yeast. Middlin.
