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 thanks to funkybrewster. thought i’d rated this before but i guess not... Pours as it should, very rich golden with a fine frothy white head. Aroma is very pleasant, honey and fresh dough, light noble hops, touch biscuit/crack like though. Flavor is not so appealing, sweet, boozy, doughy, stale crackers, estery. Bigger bodied, with fluffy mouthfeel, bit chewy, sticky, chalky. This one might be best totally fresh... and maybe a bit more hopped up! I don’t know...

Yea I’m not getting champagne like elixir at all. Old label style so at least a year old. Belgian Yeasts with light malts on nose as expected. Very sweet body and boozy. Just alcohol and sugar on this one, kinda like bum wine just not that bad. Oh well can’t win em all Avery.

rodenbach99 (4154) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2011
Bouteille de 660ml. Bière dorée très claire, peu de mousse, un simple anneau sur le pourtour du calice. Le nez semble sucré avec une touche d’amande (classique des ale belges-américaines). La bouche est très sucrée, une touche piquante épicée est bien agréable. Une touche de miel est perceptible en bouche. Le corps malgré le sucre est passablement mince. Correct. 6-7/10

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2011
(Bottle) Pours clear golden with and off-white head. The aroma holds nutmeg, white pepper, cardamom, bread spices, honey, dry syrup, crackers and (tropical) fruits like apricots, juicy oranges, ripe apples and pears. Light touch of fancy marzipan, minerals, coconut flakes, other yellow fruits, candi sugar, mint and woodsy alcohol. The nose is a bit too sterile for my liking. The flavour is near medium sweet, light to medium bitter and light acidic. Spicy, fruity, malty, honey-ish, light alcohol-driven and mild sugary. The mouthfeel is round, robust and tiny sticky with a light to medium carbonation. Tart and woody alcohol finish. Medium bodied.

On tap at Sunswick. Pours golden with moderate white head. Aroma is mild of bubble gum phenols, yeast, and peach. Flavor is a bit phenolic, bubble gum covering the fruity esters. Minimal spice presence. A bit flat overall.

I liked this better than Reverand. Not overly sweet, with some spices and fruit notes, tasted some hop bitterness in there too.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2005 Clear copper color with smallish sized white head. Very mild for a Belgian Strong where upon the taste is more malty than yeasty. A lot of funky flavors going on here and most are hidden behind the big alcohol flavor. Tastes more like a barleywine than a Belgian.

I was somewhat excited to try this beer, but disappointed with the taste. It smelled pretty good and the appearance was nice, but the taste was just too alcoholic. I would say if that was toned down a bit, this would be an above average beer.
