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.

Golden with great lace - earthy aroma and a great bit. This would be great with Thai or even Mexican. Even works with chocolate.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a nice golden to bronze color with tinges of yellow gracing the sides of the glass. There’s a one finger white foamy head that died within about a minute and left some light lacing here and there. The smell had some light apricots, peaches and apples in front of some light Belgian spices such as some clove and coriander. Delicately hopped with what comes across to be some light pine to resinous features, the aroma smells absolutely wonderful. The taste was sweet and spicy with a wonderful fruity flavoring running all over my taste buds. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with what wants to be sessionable but shows more of a sipper aspect to it. Overall, this was a good offering by Avery well worthy of having again and could go fairly well with food.

Bomber. Pours a clear golden color. Thin white head leaves minimal lacing behind. Aroma is fruity, with Belgian yeasts and a certain breadiness. Flavor is on par with a citrus note present. A bit of resiny bitterness and a long sweet finish. Very smooth & drinkable @ 9 ABV. Nicely done.

Pours a thin head on a clear straw body. The aroma is apricots, banana, grains and butterscotch. Pleasant. The taste starts sweet and gets sweeter. It has a long sweet finish. The texture is sticky with moderate carbonation. It’s too sweet without depth.
