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...

Amber color, with a fantastic yellow head. Restrained aromas of citrus peel, yeast, with herbal and sour hints. Smooth, slightly bitter beginning with subtle fruitiness, which then gets intensified due to a chewy sourness. Slightly stings the tongue, then dough yeast softens the fruit impression, opening up the palate for bready malts, adding a decent complexity and balance to the beer. Yeast stays visible till the end, reminding me almost of a Witbeer, which is only partly true, because vivid fruits still add a sour hint, assisted by high carbonation. A bit too watery, neither of the flavors is convicing on themselves, they do mix up well, but could use a little push to intensify the overall flavor.

Bottle at DTE tasting. Hazy gold pour with white head. Aroma is really fruity, not sure about fig juice, but definitely fruity, malty, lots of honey, light herbal notes. Taste is grainy, fruity, lingering Belgian yeasty finish. Palate is sweet, a bit heavy with medium carbonation. Not my favorite Blaugies by far, their beers are usually so much drier and brighter than this. Too sweet.

jmgreenuk (5226) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle at the DTE tasting, Den Haag. Poured a hazy light amber with no head at all. The aroma is apple, yeast. The flavour is light sour with a watery bubbly dry earthy mineral veggie palate. Light bodied with lively carbonation, despite the fact there was no head.

lusikka (6670) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma of bread, wet earth and mild pungent fruitiness. Flavour of smooth bready malts, pungent fig notes, floral notes, green apples, orange peel, earthiness and some yeastiness. The fig notes clearly stand out towards the end. Medium bodied and a juicy, dry, slightly sour finish. Extremely well balanced. I like this brewery.
