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.

Gold/amber color. Floral aroma, with hops and some fruit. Flavor is hoppy, but not as much as the aroma would lead you to believe. Theres a fruity flavor as well. Body is just right.

Pailhead (6489) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is fruit, alcohol, and some hops. Pours a transparent amber with a decent white head. Based on the aroma the flavor is a little suprising. Definitely malty, but not as fruity as I expected. Caramel and peach flavor with a very malty taste and slight alcohol burn in the finish. Spicey. Fruity and alcohol aftertaste. The burn is noticeable but the alcohol flavor itself isnt overpowering which is nice. It's not hidden all that well, but it balances rather nicely with the other flavors. Hops in the aroma are stronger than the hops in the actual flavor. The aroma and flavor seem to oppose each other. Whats stronger in the aroma is weaker in the flavor and vice versa.

clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - SEP 27, 2004
1 pint bottle. poured bright copper with a thin head. buttery hoppy orange aromas. sweet peach, apricot flavors, slight orange and dry bitterness in the finish. very strange and impressive. not as funky as a belgian but the fruityness seems hop induced. almost seemed spiked with fruit extract. only the brewer knows. If not, then it is a very impressive beer.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2004
No head. Golden color. Aroma is AWESOME. Candy, malt and sugar. Some floral, estery notes too. Very smooth mouthfeel. Nice ripe belgian taste. Alcohol could be much more well masked though, it does detract from the flavor a little bit.

hopdog (11774) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Poured a medium orange color with an avearaged sized white head. Aromas of yeast, apples, and some spices. Spicey apple tastes. Sweet start with a light bitter finish. Very light alcohol in the taste. Not bad I liked this beer.

Frank (4043) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Not a bad tripel but not a great one. Actually, its hard to call it a tripel at all given that it lacks a certain Belgian yeast character (like its brother the Reverend). Slightly hazy golden orange color with a quickly diminishing head. Nose is sweet, lightly spicy. Mouthfeel is nice and thick but just a bit lacking in carbonation. Very lightly tart with a stronger-than-expected woody bitterness in the finish.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Poured clear golden with thin but lasting white head...smells very citrusy, definate apricot and pear...also spicy, cloves etc. along with alcohol...very thin bodied...not impressive...difficult to define the palate...I agree with Lumpy...definately something perfumey about it...finish bitter and alcohol...

notalush (5748) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Tripel-like appearace and aroma, with notes of apricot, apple, peach and spice - the flavor doesn’t quite offer up what the aroma promises - this walks a fine line between "delicate" and "weak/thin" and it doesn’t always lean toward the good side of that line - light fruits predominate at first, pear, grape skins - saison spice shows up late, with a gradual swell of hops that don’t seem to meld nearly as well with the spice as they could (or should) - a good, albeit out-of-balance effort.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2004
Orange citrus hop nose with some alcohol apparent in the aroma.Clear, golden copper with thin, white head that diminishes to ring. Sweet and hoppy flavour with gentle bitterness and many fruity notes. A bit hot. Body somewhat thin. Bottle. Enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere. Thanks, Dorwart!

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2004
Dull totally clear golden. Honest white film. Another typical Avery yeasty/hoppy belgian aroma. Hops are grapefruity, orangey and floral and somehow hides some of the malt development into a fruitiness approaching pears. Again the avery alcohol heating limits the apparent complexity. Palate is flowery, orangey.. not much else. Alright hoppy belgian ale I guess with a gentle bitter and heating (contained though) finish. Rather light bodied and sadly very low carbonation for a belgian ale. Laughable commercial description.
