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.

A solid Belgian. Avery brews some excellent ales and though this is not one of my favorite it is still a fine glass of ale...Itís light, fruity and spicy as claimed though no one flavor overpowers so it is a good blend. The high ABV is hidden well...smooth and pleasant flavor. No lingering bitter and a slight sweetness make it complimentary to the tongue.

tightslice (728) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is floral, fruity esters. Sweet, refreshing and big carbonation. A solid American take on the Belgian Strong style.

JDBaker11058 (1737) - Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Appearance: clear honeyed gold with a creamy and short near-white head. Aroma: nice nose full of honey, belgian yeast, peaches in heavy syrup, maybe some mango and banana, definitely apricot and pineapple. Taste: as the aroma indicated; add in some biscuit dough and cracker. Finish: sweet, with lingering yeasty spice imparting a bit of peppery; alcohol is totally hidden, and the palate is almost syrupy. Notes: Fantastic take on the style. Bottle from Sarah for Beerthday 2015.

NikkTwist (2401) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Hazy gold pour. Slim soft fizzy/foamy white head. Splashes of lace. Strong sweet Belgium yeast flavors. Syrupy body. Sugared dough. Buttered croissants. Honeycomb. Blonde caramel toffee. Herbal floral hops. Horehound. Thyme. Kumquat. Dandelion. Pineapple. Honeycomb. Sweet nose. Semi-dry finish. Admittedly as good for the style as any non-Belgium brewer has produced - though ultimately not to my particular taste.

GreatDane1632 (1152) - North Dakota, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 3 July 2012 -- This was a great Belgian, and let me frame that by saying Iím not a big fan of Belgians. This was well done, enough that I really really enjoyed it. Can I have some more please.

generallee08 (767) - New York, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint 6 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 9%. Appearance: The body has a light haze and a light amber color. It is topped off with a small white head which settles out leaving just a ring of foam at the edge of the glass. Smell: The aroma offers notes of sweet tropical fruit, herbal and citrusy hops with a light boozy character backing it all up. Taste / Palate: Itís sweet up front and notes of sweet pineapple pop out of a light bready and raw grain like maltiness. If finish adds some citrus notes and mild bitterness. The palate feels smooth and full with soft carbonation.
