Avery Salvation Belgian Golden Ale (7/10)

Avery Brewing Co. of Boulder, Colorado, produces Salvation.  Salvation is described as a Belgian Golden Ale and the third in Avery's "Holy Trinity of Ales" series of beers which includes The Reverend (a personal favorite).  Avery says that "luscious apricot and peach aromas are delicately interwoven with spicy suggestions of nutmeg and cinnamon in this soft, champagne-like elixir."

Salvation pours a slightly cloudy orange-tinged gold with a thin white head.

The aroma is sweet, and definitely invokes the peach and apricot aromas Avery was going for.

The flavor starts with a strong warming note, hinting at the beer's 9% alcohol content.  This warming note is soon followed by caramel malt, and ending with a citrusy bitterness at the end.  The bitterness is mild.

Beer Advocate gives Avery Salvation an 86 or "very good" rating.  Rate Beer gives it a 94 overall.  I enjoyed it, but not quite as much as they did.  I'm giving it a 7 out of 10.
