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.

Bottle. Medium frothy head. Aroma is yeasty and spicy and fruit. Flavor is very similar, very well balanced and complex. It is malty but light, with a decently warming alcohol burn in the end.

draft. A very good brew. Like a combo of a Belgian pale ale and a tripel. Alcohol+malt+hoppy spicey= good.

Nice belgian strong. Pours golden with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, with a bit of alcohol in it also. Flavor is spiced fruit (this could work as a christmastime beer). It is a full bodied beer, that lives up to the commercial description of being champagne-like. I wish I had tried this one and the Russian River Salvation before trying their Collaboration ale. It would be interesting to taste the way it worked in that blend. Might need to try a 3 way tasting of the two Salvations, and then the Collaboration.

coldmeat23 (232) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Beautiful golden/amber liquid. Nice creamy finger and a half of head with great retention. Decent lacing. Big yeasty bread smell. Candy sugars and maltiness. Peaches and pears, maybe a hint of nectarines. Spicey notes of coriander and nutmeg. Yeast, malt and candy sugars. Citrus flavors, light and sweet. Pecan nuttiness. Slight peppery spice. Light floral hop quality. Very nice body. Creamy and smooth, yet not overly heavy. Excellently drinkable.

Big and robust. The aroma has hops and dried fruit. The appearance is light but very golden. The 9% ABV doesn’t really overpower the taste, which is always great.

(22oz bottle). Pours clear dark golden-almost orange color with white head. Nice carbonation. Aroma has lots of ripe pit fruit and maybe a little citrusy guava. The fruit really dominates the nose, but its very pleasant. Taste is sweet malt backbone that is nicely balanced by some hop bitterness. The ripe fruits peek out from the bitterness to balance this out. Thin to medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture, but not as much as many other Avery beers. Finish is slightly bitter, but pleasant. This might be my favorite Avery beer in their regular line-up. Figures, they are leaving AZ now. Oh well, I can wait a year or so til they come back.

Poured into a tulip. Aromas of citrus and herbs. Initial taste of dough and bread. Ended with a banana taste. The palate is rich and strong. Very good beer.

Absolutely superb. Belgian yeast is perfectly plentiful. Love the fruity and spicy notes, and perhaps most of all the thick mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Smells lightly fruity with a hint of bread yeastiness. Taste is fruity, hints of spices, soft breadiness. Medium to full bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Avery Salvation finishes with a soft light fruit kick.
