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...

GlasgowTAD (1352) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 19, 2015
Pours unclear amber yellow with a modest white head which soon disappears. Aroma is biscuits. Boy, I sure do hope the taste outperforms the aroma. Taste is syrupy, slight corn, weak sour, moderate conserved fruit sweetness.

alteregoo (913) - POLAND - NOV 17, 2015
Pana obfita, drobna i średnia, całkiem trwała, choć szkła nie zdobi. Barwa pomarańczowa, mętna. Aromat dziki, są nuty stajni, siana, trawy cytrynowej, w tle suszone morele, świeże figi. W smaku kwaskowe, czuć ten sfermentowany sok figowy, przypominający domowej produkcji wino z kwiatów modraka, powtarzają się motywy funky z aromatu, przejrzałe brzoskwinie, mirabelki. Goryczka pestkowo głogowa, nieduża, choć dość długa, potęgowaną lekką cierpkością. Wysycenie wysokie, szampańskie. Fajne piwo, lekko dzikie, orzeźwiające, całkiem sesyjne, aczkolwiek brak mi tu większej ilości estrów, owoców, belgijskich nut znanych z Saisonów czy Tripli, ewentualnie amerykańskich chmieli... Możliwe, że refermentacja spowodowała całkowite przetworzenie cukrów resztkowych na alkohol - piwo jest wytrawne, pozbawione słodyczy i wyraźnie rogrzewające, warto byłoby spróbować świeżej warki.
