Picked this piece of Salvation up for my birthday, let's see if I'm blinded by the light or if Avery is just selling indulgences:
A - Poured from a bomber with bottle art reminiscent of a stained glass window. Pale yellow in color but with a fluffy head and lacing the cascades slowly on the glass.
S - Aroma is delicate with ripe banana and floral notes along with an earthy quality that makes this brew just a touch heavier than it looks.
T - Salvation hits the palate lightly like most well crafted belgians due, but blossoms was it lingers for a few moments. A bit of pine and thyme give it an herbal quality while cream and butter notes hit on the back end. Lingering flavor comes from the gentle hop quality the lightly colors the flavor
M - Light at first, but has a creaminess that makes for a thicker finish than one would expect.
O - A solid entry from the always diverse Avery canon, and worth a try if you're feeling up for a Belgian with an American twist.

Appearance: Pours dark gold in color. Streams of carbonation rush to the top of the glass. Inch of frothy white head that dissipates quickly but thin layer of head is retained for the length of the drink. Clear, no sediment. Looks delectable!
Smell: Sweet malts, caramelly. Hard to distinguish hop aroma. Distinctly belgian yeast; slightly funky, sweet and strong.
Taste: Sweet, slightly fruity (green apples?). Funky/musty taste characteristic of belgian yeast shines through but balanced well by the sweetness. Dangerously smooth for it’s strength.
Mouthfeel: Complex flavors lend to a full body, but the malts maintain lightness. Smooth start to finish. Medium carbonation. Alcohol taste lingers on the top of the mouth.
Overall: I’ve enjoyed this beer more times than I can count, on tap or bottled. It’s always a favorite, never disappointed. Accurate as a Belgian golden, but never boring for the palate!
