Avery Brewing Company Salvation Belgian-Style Golden Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Avery Brewing Company Salvation Belgian-Style Golden Ale. I have previously reviewed the other two beers in “The Holy Trinity of Ales” series and thought this was a fitting night to unleash the final chapter.
From the Avery Brewing Company website: “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. Luscious apricot and peach aromas are delicately interwoven with spicy suggestions of nutmeg and cinnamon in this heavenly soft, champagne-like elixir.
Salvation is the final installment of “The Holy Trinity of Ales” series.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden pale orange color with a nice white head and soapy lacing.
Aroma: Belgian candy sugar and yeast, sweet and bready malts, banana, clove, peach, apricot, citrus and nutmeg. An amazing nose!
Taste: Peach, apricot, pear and dark fruits, citrus, Belgian candy sugar and yeast, pale and bready malts, vanilla, banana, clove, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Overall: Crisp and tasty, Avery Brewing Company Salvation Belgian-Style Golden Ale is very good. At 9% ABV I highly suggest this to fans of the style. I would most definitely purchase again!
