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.

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: It’s 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.

12 oz pour from refrigerated bottled allowed to warm into stemmed tulip glass. Sizable white head, fairly opaque, golden, great carbonation. Mouthfeel moderate-on-creamy. Nose is fruit (citrus and tropical) and a little yeast. Taste is similar with decent maltiness as well. A little cinnamon too

Floral aromas, brilliantly citrusy with predominant notes of lime and herbs. Hazy yellow-straw with a fully lasting white head. Floral, spicy, subtly fruity. Light-medium bodied.

Aroma is very yeasty, reminds me of a lot of commercial beers out there. I am getting some of the apricot and peach from the description, but it’s muted. Some banana peel and clove also. Looks pretty standard - dark golden in color with a white head. Tastes like banana, nutmeg and brown sugar. Aftertaste is spicy, booze is hidden very well. Palate is good enough, nothing spectacular. Admittedly, this is a style that I’m not all that familiar with, but this beer didn’t really do it for me.

Nice big beer that has a nose of sweet fruit. Taste is sugary with a little but of acidity on the finish but smooth and very enjoyable.

Bottle poured into snifter glass. Purchased at Elevated in South Mpls. Mostly golden with a hint of orange. Effervescent. Half finger of white head. Smell is very Belgiany. Floral notes with yeast and some citrus. Taste is heavy alcohol with even a little bit of the back of the throat burn. Hops are there bringing bitterness but also getting a sugary presence. Effervescence seems to carry on even in the aftertaste. More sweet at the end. Very interesting beer. Kind of a blend of a tripel, Belgian pale ale, and champagne.

Big bottle from elevated with commonmac. Dark gold with small white head. Very effervescent appearance. Fruity Belgian smell and spicy. Crisp alcohol and tart apple . Sweet and slightly yeasty. Some sweet spice too. Nice beer.
