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...

Små doftar fikon, hö,lite rök & läder. massa olika kryddor: Saisonigt. Rejält kolsyrad. Stort vitt huve. Stor fikon smak som går igenom de andra kryddorna med ändå aldrig blir att ta över; fint balanserad. Smaken av fikon ligger kvar vägen igenom. Man känner även humle, läder, hö & lite jord. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lore (1335) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 8, 2015
cloudy orange colour, minimal yellowish head; aroma of earth, wet wheat, barnyard, some acidic fruitiness, but I can’t feel any traces of figs; taste is sourish fruity, lemony, wheaty, slightly bittery with some earthy notes and minimal figs; drinkable

Ambrée trouble, effervescence moyenne de visu, très faible au palais, col beige moyen. Principalement maltée, belle présence de figues mais sans sucre ajouté, petite acidité, un rien boisée.

HammerTroll (685) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 4, 2015
Cloudy yellow color, small white head. Aroma is sour fruit, plum, but mostly rotten apple. Taste is heavily sour, wine, apple cider vinegar, coriander. Thin to medium body, soft carbonation. More like saison than traditional ale, and highly overrated?
(Vrutak 0,75l bottle)

ogivlado (6100) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 2, 2015
Bottled 750ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Murky dark golden coloured, minimal off-white head, sourish nose. Sweetish malty, sourish fruity, light yeasty and some notes of caramel and banana without any notes of figs (plums maybe but figs not for sure). Hint of spices in the finish but all in all didn’t like this one. Average or should I say below average brew.

Thanks Ogi I guess for sharing this with us! Murky deep amber body, tiny white head. Sourish, malty, vaguely sweetish aroma, yeah, traces of figs. Flat, mild, empty sweetish taste, tart over some typical Belgian maltiness. No figs in the taste. So, basically, ends up being a typical Belgian pale with an overlay of tartness that, for me (us?) didn’t work as well as I’d hoped. Just OK, and that’s not enough for the price.

Cloudy amber colored, quickly dissipating offwhite head. Aroma is unpleasant, boiled eggs, tart barnyard.Taste is malty grainy, tart fruit, medium sour, hay. Light to medium bodied, crisp. I say nope.

erickok (4005) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 27, 2015
Amber body, small head. Very yeasty, dough, funky aroma, lactic even. Full yet carbonated palate. Yum, very good, earthy, rustic. Very unique, only Fantôme comes close to this (in the good days). Great rustic, characterful brew. The reason classic Belgian beer has a historically great name. It’s not all sugar alcohol bubbles. (75cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

Lilja (1898) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2015
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Tack Daniel. Relativt stiltypisk belgisk bärnstensfärgad ale med smak och doft av jäst, gräs, och fikonjuice. Relativt torr trots smaken av torkad frukt i allmänhet och fikon i synnerhet och en lite besk jästig avslutning. Riktigt trevlig.

SlackerMads (1869) - DENMARK - JAN 27, 2015
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.
