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.

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

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.

Brewtopia’04. Another mild smelling Avery beer, some peachy fruitiness, a bit nutty. Uninspired flavor, grapeskin, slight spice(savory), not enough alcohol presence IMO. Sort of briney. Kind of flowery/hoppy.

Golden and sweet with a citrus, floral, and peachy flavor. Not much else to say.

Beautiful orange color but zero head is a big disappointment. Taste is somewhat sour & soapy. A tad bitter too as it warms up. Quite strong. Decent but there’s better out there. Most likely I’ll never drink this again. Just found it sort of boring.

There’s a joke in here about finding salvation in a bottle, but I’ll leave that to the professionals.

An amber/orange colored brew under an average and fading, off-white head. Good Belgian character in the aromas, which ran the gamut of caramel maltiness, grapefruit hopiness and light, doughy yeastiness... along with honey and alcohol. Flavor was a bit wanting, however, starting with heavy sugars proceding to some middle malts and ending with some strong alcohol that quickly canceled out all the flavor. After a promising start, it ended rather "blah".

Had just a smallish glass of this but to me this is a generic belgo tripple with a wheatbock character. Hoegaarden Grand Cru on steroids. More hops than the average tripple but close to no aftertaste.

Very fluffy head on this orange colored beer. Another Avery beer that fills the room with the aroma, however, this one is a bit easy to take. Can distinctly taste the fruit and yeast but I also caught a hint of what I think is liquorish root. Lots of other flavors I can pick out after a while; apricot, honey, clove to name a few. Quite complex really and unlike others, I can taste the alcohol in this one. Not bad, would drink again but like The Reverend, has sugar in it.

Hmm, well I’m not really sure what the big deal is with this one. It approximates the good Belgians, with light phenolic and banana notes, along with a fairly interesting hop aroma, piney and almost citric. Further, there was a bit of a strong and simplistic caramel note, so that in the end, this seemed too sweet and lacked the fluffy body of the great examples. Also, I noticed this had no yeast sediment at all, and poured a very bright and crystal clear orange color.
