AoBF ’04: I couldnt believe this brew is in Massachusetts, and Volgon seemed pretty psyched as well! I cant wait to get my hands on more of this!!! Big Fantome yeast, cidery, spice nose. Murky ruddy/orange-ish hue. Big rocky lasting head. All yeast, fruit on the palate, pears, apricot, spices, more yeast, great texture and mouthfeel, finishing all funky, a Belgian barnyard/farmhouse in paradise! MORE PLEASE!!!

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Art of Beer Festival 2004: End of the bottle, so it was really yeasty. I saw this bottle and thought that I was dreaming. Murky cider-like color with a huge rocky, frothy off-white head. Complex aroma, with apples, brown sugar and spices. Medium bodied with lively carbonation that goes down very smooth. Ends slightly sweet and very dry. An excellent beer that I’m lucky to have tried.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Interesting. Once the cork explodes out of the bottle, just a bit of liquid comes coarsing out of the bottle, then is blocked by copius amounts of foam. The pour is very floral and sour, an almost dead flowers aroma, the glass is instantly turned foamy and then recedes into a golden amber color with that huge egg white head that I have seen in every saison I have ever had. The first taste is slightly spicy, peppery and sour, with lots of pears, peaches and apricots. The aftertaste is lightly salty, with some funky earthy notes. I mean lots of funk! Very yeasty throughout the bottle, with a nice dry finish. Interesting...

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2004
Bottle conditioned. Deep amber red, vast fluffy longlasting white head and moderate condition. How this beer avoids gushing from the bottle is a mystery. Cork explodes noisily and a slight had develops in the neck, but when you pour and the beer hits the glass it turns instantly to foam. Slightly spicy and yeasty in the nose with some background sweet maltiness, plus coconut and sweaty mushroom notes as it develops. Sweet yeast in the mouth with a refreshing dryness and a delicate spicy edge but more muted than the nose had suggested. Intense dry bitterness lingers in the finish, possibly hops or maybe spices. Many thanks to Dany and the Babble Belt for this beer.

JorisPPattyn (7820) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2004
Beautiful red colour, only slightly hazy; reddish tinted head, collapsing. Opening the bottle gives an explosion of fruity, funky flavours, but very volatile, leaving a gingery-fruity smell. Taste is smokey, tobacco flavours, cigarette ash - perpendicular on the nose impression. Some slight acidity, and -burn. Impressive for a 6% ABV beer. Alcohol/acidburn. Another great one from Dany P. How does he do it?

Ungstrup (29174) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2004
The aroma is sweet malty with notes of corriander. The color is an unclear dark orange-red and it has a fine off white head. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of corriander. The carbonation runs over the tongue before it ends on a dry hoppy note.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2004
Cloudy, dark orange. This tastes old. I'm not what exactly is wrong. Not very fresh, nor refreshing or strong. Strange brew, with an unclassifiable taste.
