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.

TH28 (76) - - JUN 22, 2013
Appearance is cloudy golden with creamy white foam cap. Aroma is typical clove from Belgian yeast, with hints of apricot. As it warms a bready malt note stands out. Taste is sweet, rich malt gives way to slight hint of apricot, and a bit of nutmeg. Mouthfeel is medium to light, with slight hop bitterness on the finish to balance out. Overall, good example of the style

Lemke10 (682) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2014
This pours a semi-cloudy golden yellow color with a slight off-white head containing floaties. The aroma is inviting with a mixture of banana and yeast. The taste is smooth with citrus and bready tones. The characteristics are very true to the Belgian style. This is interesting, well made, and easy to drink.

Cotton off white 1/2" head, good lacing. Hazy medium to light amber. Aroma mild spice and fruit. Well balanced moderate creamy and caramel sweetness and bitter with spicy notes. Creamy mouthfeel with some bite on tongue, very warm finish. This wonderful and complex beer elevated my spirit on the first gulp! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stuedmaster (162) - Vista, California, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Pours rich gold with a slight white head that leaves spiderweb lacing. Aroma is fruity esters, bread, some nuttiness, alcohol, and barnyard character. Well balanced flavor, very fruity and sweet with a nice touch of bitterness. This beer packs a punch at 9% abv yet is very smooth and quaffable. Well done and accurate to the style. Medium body, slick and soft texture, average carbonation, and sweet, long finish.

HIGHB4LL (269) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Sampler at Avery’s. Appearance: large white head, excellent lacing, yellow. Aroma: bread, Brett, floral, light vinegar. Palate: light body, sparkling texture, lively carbonation. Taste: heavy sweetness and light tartness. Overall, not the most unique beer, but very sturdy for the style and worth having every so often.

Gription79 (2157) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. I have had this beer multiple times, I am surprised that this is the first I have rated it. Caramel, estery/fruity, oxidized cardboard notes, slight mango. There is a sweet maltiness with a dry finish.

Avery very rarely disappoints, it hasn't happened to me. This is a fruity, well balanced golden ale with a pleasant palate. Very much worth trying.

Bottle to tulip. Welcome back to CA Avery!! Aroma of sweet bread, perfume and fruity esters. Pours a hazy sunset orange with white head that leaves slight lacing and dusting across the top. Taste is fruity esters, bread, orange and late spice from the yeast. Semi-dry finish.
