Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is very fruity and yeasty. Very light tartness. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Light caramel up front with a moderate sourness and light acidity in the finish. Light yeastiness hides in the background as it warms. Caramel increase too as it warms and a toffee presence becomes noticeable.

Served on draft at Mekong. Pours a hazy amber color with a large creamy offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Spicy, yeasty aroma with notes of stone fruits, citrus and lemongrass. The taste is stone fruits, yeast, spices, strawberry and faintly earthy, vegetal notes. Medium bodied. Nice.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Best before end of 2005, drank in the middle of 2004. Light hazy light orange color with a rock white head. Grass, lemon, flowers and yeast make up the aroma, and the body is fizzy, but in a good way. Ends adicic with a touch of bitterness with the yeast taste hanging around for a while.

I was fortunate enough to have one of these in Antwerp. It was quite nice. Hazy golden with a long lasting white head. Sweet with a spicy hop aroma quality that was very surprising. Medium-full bodied. Spicy taste that lingers for a minute and then is gone.
