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.

fiulijn (20498) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2006
Gold color. The aroma is not impressive, the taste is much better, full bodied, malty, balanced by the bitterness, well mixed. Good.

rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2008
Bottle. Golden/yellow color, white head. Fruity, yeasty flavor, quite malty and with some citric notes. Yeast and malt flavor, quite nice fruity notes, some alcohol, nice body.

3.4
harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2006
Bottle at Kookfest 2006. Gold with lasting off white head. Aroma of a Belgian Ale, some tangerine, bit metallic. Belgian triple style beer with sweetish, sticky notes. Hides the alcohol pretty well, but carbonated and metallic. I thought it was ok.

saxo (18301) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2007

3.3
mcberko (17832) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2010
22 oz. bottle, pours almost clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, spices (nutmeg & cinnamon), apricot and peaches. Flavour of spices, yeast and dry fruits, with a very dry palate and finish.

3.2
Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2007
Golden-brown colour. Fruity, chewy nose with light phenols. Hints of bubblegum on the palate, along with spicy notes and hints of yeast. Middlin.

3.5
TBone (17532) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2008
(Bottled 1 Pint 6 Fl. Oz, BB 11/2009). Hazy orange-amber color, small steady off-white head. Apricot, peach and spices in the fruity nose. Very sweet fruity-yeasty flavor - apricot, peach, banana and some spices. First thought was: "hmm .. this tastes very English" and sure, Styrian Goldings hops are used. Hops rise in the finish. Also Belgian style candy sugar sweetness. Aftertaste has some alcohol too and dry hoppy notes. Quite pleasant, just a bit too sugary, propably would be better after one or two years in the cellar.

3.5
yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2009
Bottle, 22oz. A hazy, orange beer with some microfloaties and a small, off-white head. Sweet, syrupy nose, a bit herbal, with peaches in the background. Sugary sweet flavor with a good dash of fruits, some herbal notes and an evident but pleasant alcohol warmth. Full-bodied, sweetish mouthfeel. Lasting finish with sweetness, fruits, some herbs and alcohol. A quite pleasant beer, not impressing, easy drinkable but maybe a bit on the sweet side. (090213)

3.3
brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2010
A: The pour is a dark and mildly hazed golden color with a fluffy white head. S: Quite a bit of spice esters such as all spice, clove, and nutmeg. Some mild pear and apple fruitiness along with a bit of citrus peel. Plenty of sweet sugar and caramel malts, too. T: More of a citrus presence on the flavor than I had expected. Still some sweet fruits like pears and bananas along with the spice notes. Caramel, candi sugar, and a bit of alcohol to round it out. M: The body is medium with a medium level of carbonation. As sweet as this beer is, luckily it’s not syrupy. D: A bit too sweet for me with a sort of half hearted spice character. A bit boozy, too.

3.7
Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2007
Clear golden orange with fine white head. Aroma and taste has malts, hops, sugar, herb/floral. Some fruits (apricot/peach).Good balanced. alcohol is almost nok visible. Long finish........
