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.

From a bottle - Ah, yes... another fine brew I drank at this year’s "Ohio River Way Paddlefest". It poured a luscious, golden color with a spicey, gardeny bouquet and a finely laced white head.
It’s taste was suberb, an outstanding example of a Flemish golden beer!

Once poured from the glass there is deep golden color throughout the glass. The scent at first has a sweet intense flavor that finishs with a hint of corriander. A great tasting Beligan like beer! Has a deep flavor that coats and shocks the taste buds!

Tap @ brewery. Light yellow orange and clear appearance with a orange cream colored head. Citrusy and yeasty light Belgian aroma. Sweet and light Belgian ale flavor with some orange citrus. Some and somewhat fruity finish. Very smooth.

Aroma: Lots of fruit in the aroma--peach, nectarine maybe--and hints of spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove maybe. Smells like a winter seasonal with late summer fruit--very yummy!
Appearance: Cloudy orange-gold with a thick white head that dissipates too quickly.
Taste: Immediate medium fruity sweetness balanced by a hint of complimentary sourness, almost like drinking a glass of orange juice. Really yummy and well balanced taste.
Palate: Medium body, creamy, slick texture--almost oily, soft carbonation, loooong finish.
Overall: A bit TOO fruity for my taste, but the balance and craft is solid. This is a really well developed beer which would pair well with something fancy like Peking Duck or Duck a l’Orange. It’s got enough flavor and body to handle sweet, greasy food, but a light and fruity flavour that I don’t think would work with heavier meats.

It pours a beautiful dark golden hue, with a thick head that lingers a little before disappearing. The aroma is a little bready, but mostly the dark fruit, raisiny notes that are great in a Belgian. The flavor is similar to the aroma, low hops, and a nice light sweetness on the finish. The medium-light body make it easy to drink for a big beer.

Big and robust. The aroma has hops and dried fruit. The appearance is light but very golden. The 9% ABV doesn’t really overpower the taste, which is always great.

(22oz bottle). Pours clear dark golden-almost orange color with white head. Nice carbonation. Aroma has lots of ripe pit fruit and maybe a little citrusy guava. The fruit really dominates the nose, but its very pleasant. Taste is sweet malt backbone that is nicely balanced by some hop bitterness. The ripe fruits peek out from the bitterness to balance this out. Thin to medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture, but not as much as many other Avery beers. Finish is slightly bitter, but pleasant. This might be my favorite Avery beer in their regular line-up. Figures, they are leaving AZ now. Oh well, I can wait a year or so til they come back.

Poured into a tulip. Aromas of citrus and herbs. Initial taste of dough and bread. Ended with a banana taste. The palate is rich and strong. Very good beer.
