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.

Deep gold pour, decent white head, not much lace. Malt, soft fruit, and alcohol on the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is vanilla, apricot and medium roasted malt. Finish is dry and a little boozy.

The aroma is slight chocolate or of vegetables. The appearance is a murky gold with a thin white head. The taste is slight and sweet after taste. Could have been better, but still overall nice.

22 Oz bottle pour at Brouwers. 2007 vintage. Pours a semi cloudy golden orange color with a sweet and spicy apple juice/cider aroma. Sweet and spice flavor as well, with a mellow malt, fruit, and a smooth finish. Awesome stuff.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours good with a off white head. Taste Belgian yeast, sweet, apricots. I thought this was ok. I would not drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber, frothy beige head cover, swirls of lace. Taste is slightly bittered caramel malt that moves through the palate without incident to a finish that continues the status quo for a long while. Strong, and some alcohol shows as the taste fades, but, still seems one-note. Doesn’t earn the 9% abv.

Mep3222 (610) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Banana nutty aroma with some candied sugar. Taste is malty and slightly sweet with some noticeable hops. Almost has a slight barley wine aspect to this strong Belgian golden. Full flavored and strong. Well done beer by avery, but a bit sweeter than I tend to like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drpimento (2298) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Aroma is east mall to hop and a little spice. Appearance has a small but long-lasting off-white head, some lacing and a slightly hazy orange amber color. Flavor is like aroma plus has some malt and fruit sweetness with plenty of hop bitterness but there are some medicinal qualities to the aftertaste. Body is good with just a touch softness. Overall it's pretty good beer except for that medicinal thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ineedbeer (930) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 19, 2014
22 oz bottle likely from 2010. Aroma has a light graininess with moderate Belgian phenolics, mostly white pepper and coriander. Some overripe stone fruit and apple with moderate honey and a touch of cardboard. Light hints of alcohol and grassy hops. Pours a rather cloudy, murky brownish orange with a moderately sized, fairly thick white head with good retention. Light lacing and moderate legs. Flavor has a light sweetness with a faint grain character. Light phenolic notes of pepper and grains of paradise with medium light overripe stone fruit, mostly peach with some pear and apple notes. Light grassy hop notes with light alcohol spice. Moderate honey character and the finish has bits of cardboard and wet paper. Medium light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer that has done well with the age. The phenolics and fruitiness are still present but the hops have turned weird and the oxidation is starting to take over.
