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...

Expected something fruity, sweet, and thick. It looked ok - golden, cloudy, with a littleof whitehead, but wasvery sour and thin. Not sure what the figs added to the brew.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2007 Cloudy golden body with a medium beige head. Body is full but soft with a cotton candy mouthfeel. Malt profile is dry hay and wheat. Yeast is moderately wild. Shy hops essence flavour. Felt like those lambics dry-hoping but with this type of beer it was just too blah. Dandelions is the best word I can find to describe the hops flavour. A bit perfumy. Add to that a lemon muffin flavour with a bite of peach on the side and some herbal spices. Light tartness/astringency. My least favourite of the Blaugies lineup. It’s kind of… you know… there. You can feel the potential greatness of other Blaugies but this is obviously meant as there entry beer and they played it as safe as a politician’s acceptance speech.

jimvy (131) - O’Fallon, Missouri, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours an orangish color. Could be a clear beer, but there’s a ton of sediment in my pour. White thin head that sticks around. Aroma is dark fruits and some phenols. High acidity in the this one, with some hints of dark fruit. Definitely some phenolic character as well. Overall, highly disappointing. If there’s figs in this, you wouldn’t know. The high acidity and phenolic character dominate the beer rather than add to the complexity. Not something I’d recommend.

Light orange body with a large head. Nose is yeasty with some tropical fruit, fig and herbs. Balanced and subtle in flavour, with green apple, flowers and citrus. Soft carbonation with some pepper and herbs in the finish. I could drink this beer all day.

Fancy new Adam and Eve with strategically placed fig leaves label. Pours a a strinking glowing orange with a large foamy off-white head. The aroma is earthy dark fruit (fig maybe, you think?) Nice sour yeasty aroma also. The flavor is loaded with a pruney-figgy flavor that is interesting for sure. A nice sourness throughout that firs well. Fizzy medium body. Sweet lingering finsih. Good and interesting stuff.

rederic (3207) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2006
Hazy yellow honey hue, with a frothy white head, the nose is one of yeast fruitiness, wheat malt, pale malt, plums note, hint of spiciness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty character, the usual Blaugies yeast, wheaten note, hint of acidic and wineyness fruitiness, subtle notes plums and figs, with a faint floral hops accent, leading towards a low hop bittering finish.

thegreenrooster (3501) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 8, 2006
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is of citrus fruits and candy sugar. Flavor is of tart candy sugar with some citrus on the tounge. Finishes very musty and earthy. All three saisons from this brewer taste almost the same with a few differences but i think this is the most tasty.

750ml corked bottle. Hazy and cloudy. Dull golden hue. White clinging head. Apples and citrus in the nose. Also slightly musty and peppery. Spicy and Good! Tart and tangy, sour and lively. Banana flavors along with a hoppy, wheaty, grainy, figgy, 7-up flavor. Delicious!

750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy deep golden/light amber color has a fair amount of sediment. Long lasting cream colored head, somewhat dense. Aroma of fruit, yeast, somewhat cidery. Flavor has a strong Blaugies house character, some farmhouse, lightly tart, yeasty, fruity. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, highly drinkable. Very tasty.
