Poured entire 22oz. into oversized tulip. Lovely cloudy amber, a little sediment.
Smelled the way I want my strong belgian ales to smell, sweet malts, belgian yeast.
Taste and Mouthfeel were outstanding very smooth/balanced drink, the best domestic belgian style I have had so far.
The Closest I can get to a Russian River for now and I loved it, i would have another if I would of bought two.

A: Pours a beautiful brownish amber with light white head that creeps at the edges of the glass.
S: White grapes and estery floral notes that explode from this lovely gem
T: A lovely blend of very light cinnamon that falls in the background of apple, pears, and gorgeously blended fruits.
M: Welcomely dry and holds up extremely well in the flavor department
O: This is a phenomenal beer that i cant help but keep buying. And i cant wait to try the Batch 5 that has been cellaring in my basement for over a year. A flavor bomb that does nothing but please my taste buds. Highly recommended.

From Batch #2. Pours a clear amber color with a fluffy, fine beige head that fades at a medium pace to a nice coating and lacing.
Funky, fruity, malty nose. Alot of different stylistic notes come together in the smell. Grainy, yeasty corn, mango/papaya tropical fruitiness and malted milk combine for an olfactory overload!
Taste is a Belgian yeast explosion! Brilliant use of bittering and flavoring hops to provide a clean finish to this wonderful concoction. I also get a bit of sugar-toasty sweetness in here. A top notch beer. While the Avery Salvation is good, this beer is great. Makes me want some Russian River stuff even more now.

Okay, so Avery and Russian River both create a beer named Salvation. Instead of a copyright battle, they decided to blend the two together to form this tasty number.
Pours a brick/rust orange amber with a bit of a haze into my good ole' GuldenDraak chalice. Decent head retention, without sticking to the glass.
Aroma is tart fruit and burnt sugar...maybe burnt honey. I havn't ever burned honey, per se, but I imagine it to be something like this. Very clean and short lasting aroma.
Flavor is all over the place. The sweet seems to hit first, then a tartness. Spicy finish. Good earthy bitterness here, with grape, raisin, prune/plum. If this is indeed a 9%, then they mask it well. No alcohol burn or bite, but it warms you up inside.
Drinkability says 'keep going', but the ABV numbers caught my attention only in the nick of time. As it warms up, the drinkability actually increases, making me not want to reach the bottom of this bottle any time soon.
I have not tried either Salvation, which I now look forward to do side by side to see where each of the two is adding it's characteristics.
