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...

skaughty (652) - 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 (3019) - 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 (2415) - 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 (4438) - 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.

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 (1143) - 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.

750ml bottle from Belgian eshop Aroma of some Belgian esters-light fruity, a hint of funk and sourness, sweet grains, wheaty notes too. Amber color, hazy with white-off white head, nice lacing. High carbonation. Moderate sweet taste, some fruity and dried fruits notes (must be from the fig juice), baked bread crust, some citrusy fruits(lemon?), amazing light tartness that counters the sweetness and helps with the undrinkability. Very nice brew but I would never figure out about figs if I didn’t know...

Bottle from Humulus. Gusher! Pop from the corker, then it emptied itself over the kitchen. First pour was therefore a bit flat, with a huge head - second and third glasses had better carbonation. Aroma of raisin, caramel and sweet malt. Carbonation was disappointing to start with but subsequent glasses were acceptable. Flavour of dough, malt extract, dried fruit, slight acidity. Quite good but not u[ there with the other Blaugies beers I’ve had/

adnielsen (10028) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Foco. Pours a fairly clear golden appearance with a large sized cream colored head. The aroma is spicy, toasted grains, light fruit, herbs, and a bit of dough. High carbonation. Some grape / date notes in the flavor which was a little strange. Some acidity. Toasted bread, lemon, and twangy fruits. Certainly interesting but not my all-time favorite from Blaugies.
