Light cloudy golden color, gigantic off-white lacy head. Nose bursts w/ apricot and funky cheese...a beautiful nose fo sho. Flavors contain more apricot but grains seem to get in the way...like a sour mash beer. Some dry apricots in the finish. The sourness in this beer is weak, and the grains get in the way, but that nose was nice as hell. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Tasted at Stone Sour Fest. Hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Sour grain aroma and taste with some hay/straw notes and a nice zesty finish. MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Avery 10/10/08 at brewery tasting room. Bad Sally. Salvation Belgian Golden with Brett fermentation in secondary and aged in cabernet sauvignon cask. Oak and wine balance out the Brett sourness nicely. FlagstoneHill (215) - Erie, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Sampled at the brewery.
Barnyard aromas lingering over light graininess. No hops, slight peppery phenols, lots of fruity esters (pears, apples). .
Med Yellow, Cloudy, white head with good retention . .
Tart flavor with citrus zing and lots of brett barnyard character. Little/no hop flabor, moderate bitterness. .
Light body, high carbonation, slightly prickly. .
Very nice sour beer. quite different from the regular Salvation. Brettanomyces character is prominent. rederic (3341) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2008
Sampled at the brewery, cloudy golden hue, with a white head, nice, funky yeasty fruity nose of sour green apples, tart rhubarb, and a hint of wet oakiness, hint of lemon citric in the aroma follows through on medium-bodied palate, with a yeasty bretty, fruity character of mild green apple sourness, a lemon zesty acidic, and rhubarb tartness, with a hint of white wine wet oakiness, leading towards a fruity tart, sourness finish.

Tasted at Strong Ale Festival 12/5/08. Bright yellow, big white head. Subtle whiffs of oak and not much else. Flavors of white grapes and oak. Not overly sour, very balanced. Havenot tried regular Salvation to make a comparison. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Tasted on tap at the Pizza Port Strong Ale Festival 12/5/2008. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with a touch of tartness and funk. A medium to full bodied BSA. The malts are fruity and funky, and somewhat tart. The hops are floral. Nice carbonation. Nice beer. The funk and tartness sort of hide behind the fruit sweetness. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
