Old Review
22oz bomber acquired at the Whole Foods in Miami. Poured into a goblet. Lets do this.

A: Not a good start. Poured a bright, golden yellow that has some orange tints to it when the light hits it. Can't get head of this bitch to save my life. I pour vigoursly and I get maybe half a finger, but zero retention. This fades faster than a 24 hour whore who is out of coke. Lame, very lame. There is zero haze to this beer and jst a bit of carbonation bubbles flowing in the glass. Moving on.

S: Smells of some belgian yeast with a touch of clove and banana. There is a touch of spice kickin in there, but nothing too crazy. A step up from the appearance but I feel like I am being nice.

T: Taste is decent. Getting alot of spice as the Belgian yeast rolls in. Clove and banana are subtle but not overdone or crazy. They are very well balanced. A bit of peppery taste going on in here. I am getting just a touch of citrus on the finish. There is also a nice touch of some alcohol in that finish.

M: This is a very silky, medium bodied brew. The silkiness is quite nice. It just slips down your throat. The aftertaste is of some nice yeast, cool, clean water and a touch of clove. Alcohol provides a touch of heat on your throat and in your chest. So far, the best thing this beer has going.

D: This beer ok, I guess. The mouthfeel is amazing. The taste, look and aroma are a bit too basic or below the standards this beer should be at. The ABV isn't too bad with just a nice warming quality. The verdict is that this beer is alright, but it could be a hell of a lot better. This was a bit of a let down. Moving on.

22oz Bomber
$4.99
Binny's Orland

Purchased this along with Collaboration to give them both a try. Salvation poured a hazy glowing golden/prange. Very fine carbonation bubbles rise to the half finger head that formed on the pour. The head fades quickly to a whispy swirling that thickens around the edges of the glass. Sticky lacing.

The smell is loaded with candy sugar. A solid dose of fruity yeast esters show through in the form of banana. A bready malt is at the bottom of things creating a banana bread aroma. Mild caramel as well. Sweet. Smells wonderfully appetizing.

The flavor has a definate banana bread characteristic. Mild caramel with a touch of sweetness. Mid-palate shows a musty quality and is quickly followed up by a lively powdery yeast and candy sugar finish. Mild spiciness on the swallow.

Body is on the lighter side of medium with lively carbonation that tickles the tongue. Really comes alive on the swallow.

Drinkability is good. Enjoyable flavors and nice carbonation compliment each other nicely.

This is a solid Belgian Golden. Not as complex and unique as some but definately enjoyable and easy drinking. The price is good too at $4.99 a bomber. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this again.

Yellow jello with a small cap of white dawning the top for a brief stay. A thinnly bubbled collar remains and lace is minimal with thin looping strings.

Stank, dark, old, past its prime citrus sitting in a basement aroma. Quite musty with a dryish yeast is prevalently upfront on this one and without much complexity. Gains an alcoholic plastic/elastic nudge as it warms.

Taste is tropical and deeply musted with candy coated yeasty dryness. Its quite a ride really. Some off areas in balance, the front and middle are the better areas. Kinda peachy, drafted with the fuzz from the skins right in there. Some old pineapple, red appley, and yellow raisin, or maybe, were once grapes but now are raisins because they've been sittin' a little too long. Ya know what I mean? The finish is drab and overstated with too much yeastyness, totally flattening out the once, interesting mixtures of over-ripe, not so ripe, tropical fruity tones and candyish malts.

Feel is smooth and quick with some very floating silkyness in a few areas where the malts do their thing. Carbonation is on the lighter side getting better as it warms; as it should.

A good brew with a few areas that made it less distinguished and impressionable then most of the Belgian Goldens out there. A good old fashion American try that works in most ways, but perhaps a bit understated and less complex then it could be.

Salvation pours a truly golden color (not quite yellow not quite amber). Limited head and laciness put that is ok. There is very little carbonation as well. The smell is more bready in my opinion then say malty. A complex smell with some fruitiness but only if your looking. Definite Belgian qualites with a sweeter smell and some apricots to it.

Salvation has a well-rounded taste to it. Surprising by its 9% ABV, the breadiness is the first thing that I notice when taking a taste. A pleasing malt flavor that isn’t overpowering, the beer and mixes nice with the sweet and sour of the beers tangibles. The fruitiness in the beer is consistent more of an apricot that is too ripe. I think the yeast creates this unique flavor. There are hints of spices such as white pepper, maybe coriander, but only noticeable it you really look for it. The alcohol is blended well but there is a noticeable bite at the end of the taste coming from the hops. This might be what people don’t like about Salvation, but I think it brings a new and good flavor to the table.

Overall I think this is a good beer. I would say that this isn’t a good example of a Belgium Golden Ale style, but rather as an “American” style belgium golden ale. Very smooth and taste, a bit more hoppier and a high alcohol that is not noticeable. Salvation at last.
