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.

This should be so much better than it is. This is a great brewery and a really fun style, but this doesn't come together. Ultra sweet, barleywine like character without complexity. Ham handed and disappointing.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy orange color with no head. Looks more like apple juice than a beer. Has a fruity aroma. Flavor of hops, sugar, and yeast with a light palate.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2004
This beer looks very nice. It is clear and golden and alomst glows a bit. It smells sweet, with some carmel malt tones and a faint hint of yeast. The taste was somewhat sour at first. It was not great initially, but I warmed up to it about mid glass. Carmel malt was more pronounced at this point.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - MAR 31, 2004
Had an aroma and taste of foot after initial pour. Not very good. Mildly hoppy and semi sweet. Decent but I won't try again.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2004
Tasted in NYC. Tasted at Brewtopia 04. Soapy / floral aroma. Hint of spice and hops, slightly tangy sweet taste also.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2005
Bottle poured a nice copper amber with a smallish head. Aroma of sweet malts and alcohol. Flavor is overly sweet with a lot of alcohol at the finish...to sweet for my taste.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Dark orange color with a thin head. Aroma of bread. Dry and bitter malt taste with a slight orange finish. None of the bread or spice I would of have expected and liked. Not as ’salvating’ as I wish.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Poured into my Duvel glass. Golden boardering on orange. Started with a huge head but disipated to just a thin layer on top. No visable carbonation. Crystal clear. Upon the first whiff, honey, perfume, spicey yeast character (clove, cinnamon), and some apricot. Now the drink. Pear, alcohol, sweet, and sticky. I don’t detect any hops. Its kind of solventy at the end. I think its a fine beer. I may even be drinking this too warm. Fine enough beer.

Dogfish120 (143) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Tap ashleys ann arbor: Whispy yellow with small head and decent lacing. Spicy peach, apricot and some cinamon, with a soft hop presence. Mouthfeel wasn’t terrible great, although nice. Spicy and malty flavor with a dry alch finish.

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Sample thanks to Book_M_Dano. 2006, 22 oz bottle. Pours golden and clear. Lightly carbonated with light lacing. Spicy green pepper, lightly sweet aroma with alcohol notes. Creamy sweet taste with clove and bitter spice (pepper – and too much for me as usual). Alcohol presence. Creamy medium body. These are just not my favorite styles of beer. Drinkable though.
