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.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2005 Aroma is not powerful, gives off slight fruit, hoppy sent. Head was small but it was thick and creammy. Interesting flavor. Starts with intence hopps and a slight finish of apples, pineapple, and pear. Little too hoppy but the aftertaste makes up for it by not lasting too long. Wish the taste lingered in my mouth longer (lack of body).

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Clear golden amber color with a moderate egg shell white head. Flowery mint leaf aroma. Flavor is moderately complex with mint leaf, a touch of honey, some light lemon with a lingering mouth watering spicy dry aftertaste. Palate is smooth and creamy. Interesting, but not my favorite flavor combo.

thegreenrooster (4184) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Pours is a nice cloudy tan. Aroma is hops and i get some citrus fruit in there. Flavor is more cloves than fruit but you get some fruity goodness in there. Very creamy and think with a nice burn at the end. The flavor is a bit weak perhaps but still a good beer. I would recomend the Reverend over this brew.

PorterPounder (7682) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Picked up at Whole Foods in Austin, Tx. Dark golden to light amber colored pour, solid, thick white head. Aroma of spearmint, cotton candy and bubble gum. Flavor has some of the same accents wirh some toffee like malty sweetness - quite delectable. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy, coats the mouth. Finish is strong - lets you know you just had a 9% ABV beer, but is hidden well. Another stellar product from Avery.

aracauna (3552) - Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Beautiful clear true amber body that catches the light wonderfully and seems to actively glow. The head is smaller and fades more quickly than Id like considering the style, but I cant take off too much for that. Very ripe stone fruit and clove in the aroma. The flavor is dry one sip and sweet the next with a bit of caramel and a bit of dry hay in the malt. The heat of the alcohol is felt, but it doesnt overpower the rest of the beer. Every once in a while I get a wish of sour dishrag, but its not strong and not always there.

CBCPaleAle (73) - Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2004
Golden amber color. I enjoyed this more than the Reverend. Not as overtly sweet. I tended to taste a spicy peach sensation rather than the citrus others have mentioned. The high alcohol seemed masked pretty well to me. Enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Poured a reddish amber color. White head fades quickly. LIttle lacing. Aroma is fruity, malty sweet. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel. A touch of spices are present, malt predominates in this beer. Sweet sugary notes in the beginning and middle, some mild hop tastes are towards the finish.

mjg74 (3050) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 14, 2004
Pours a deep golden color with a hint of red. Aroma is a little fruity and malty. First flavor is alcohol. A little grainy. A hint of sweetness and spice in the flavor as well.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Bottle: Deep gold w/ a thin, short lived white head. Grainy malt, clove; fruity esters consist of peach and lemon citrus, along with candy sugar. Also lightly solventy. Balanced to just bitter w/ a citrus hop flavor in the finish and aftertaste. Hints of clove spicy yeast and bready malt, but are overshadowed by the hops. Aftertaste is more hoppy the more you drink. Some light fruity esters as well, but overall one dimensional. Med. carbonation, lighter full m/f, lightly dry. Alc. is well hidden. I expected more from this beer. I had it a couple of years ago and was disappointed, and Im still to this day. The flavor just doesnt deliver what the nose promises IMHO.
