COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with fig juice. A traditional style named for John Darby, preacher of temperance whose parishioners were oddly moved by a "soft drink" they insisted was just fig juice...

Bottle. Hazy/unclear golden with a medium sized white head. Fruit, dust, barnyard in the nose. Toasted bread/baguette, lots of fruit - like over ripe apples/pear, some barnyard, then it turns a bit sweeter with some darker fruits in the background. Fluffy mouthfeel, prickly carbonation, medium sweet and light/medium acidic. The finish gets a bit sweet, otherwise enjoyable yet not spectacular. I would have enjoyed it a lot more if the finish had some bitterness.

Great pour into a wide tulip. The beer holds an expected Belgian head of mixed off white bubbles. The color appears orange amber hue. cloudy. the aroma appears to half a great malt sweetness, similar to pre boiled wort. i think this is the fig component. it also has a great spicy character that i think goes well with the beer. the beer taste very similar to the aroma with an additional chalky character, slight cork taint and a soft acidity. the beer though seems semi sweet actually finishes quit dry with a great complementary European bitterness. i really enjoy this but the price point is a bit high.

Mad_Ferret (684) - SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2015
-99 vintage 75cl bottle @ Akkurat. Slight hazy golden, impressive big thick off white head. Went down pretty fast though. Frisk yeasty citrussy aroma with orangepeel, red apples, hay, white pepper, some brettanomyces kind of funk. A bit stale though. Citrus and apples with hay and slight brett and white pepper. Light bodied with bigh mushy carbonation, light texture. Pretty potent carbonation and flavour though 15 years old. Nice.

skaughty (650) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2015
750ml from Bottleworks - Seattle, WA Vinous aroma of a ripe dubbel. Light caramel in color with some red. First hit of mild tartness, then sweet fig. Mouthfeel is thin, but lively. Even the rookies appreciated this. Better subjectively than objectively.

Alengrin (2622) - BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2014
Classic Blaugies beer, a saison with fig juice added; tasted from an older bottle, pouring a cloudy orange blonde under a moussy white head. Fruity (peach, pineapple), yeasty and estery, spicy notes, some funky barnyard accents and still noticeable fig flavour; refreshing tartness, a bit dusty, sweetish, malty with dry yeasty finish, grassy and floral hop bitterishness, drying tartness too. Lovely saison, need to taste this again soon.

Vignale (2243) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Relativt stiltypisk belgisk bärnstensfärgad ale med karatär främst från jästen och fikonjuicen. Relativt torr trots smaken av torkad frukt i allmänhet och fikon i synnerhet och en lite besk jästig avslutning. Riktigt trevlig.

burg326 (3983) - Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Poured a pale orange colt with aromas of fogs, light lemon, hay, and some light funk. Flavors match the aromas fig and lemon lime soda almost like a fig shandy. Interesting beer overall.

ericdevin (943) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours a cloudy brown, aroma very funky, some fruit. Body juicy -and dry, yeasty. Not to my liking, really.

Mortlach (1037) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 14, 2014
On tap @Bir&Fud (Rome). Unclear, light amber appearance, white foam. Nose has notes of raisin and sweet fresh fruits, malt, no trace of hops. Taste is basically sweet, a bit unbalanced, but ok. Notes of malt, fruits, raisin, peach, a bit more bitter in the end. Medium body, medium to low carbonation. Strange, but quite good.
