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...

SamTheBarrel (693) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2015
750ml green corked and caged bottle poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy dark orange with a small tan head that reduced quickly leaving no lacing on the glass. Aroma of barnyard, green apples, lemon zest, pears and banana. Flavours of green apples, table grapes, lemon zest and wheat bread. Taste is light sweet and light-medium sour. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Blaugies Bière Darbyste is surprisingly tart and light on sweetness considering the added fig juice, which I could not distinguish in the flavour.

Pours hazy copper with two fingers of off-white head. Aroma of funk, wheat, light bretta. Taste is tarty and fruity with a funky finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

PalCabral (145) - SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget. Looks lovely orangey with a nice head There’s not much aroma (too cold served?) but the one there is isn’t pleasant. Taste is sour, like a gueze or a sour red ale. Maybe it’s figs, maybe it’s old socks, hard to tell, but it isn’t nice. Not my cup of tea, sorry beer.

fkoolen (670) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2015
37,5cl bottle at home. Nicely cloudy, darkish orange colour topped by a nicely lacing and creamy offwhite head. Cork smells like slivovich, ripe prunes and figs. The ale is nicely balanced between fruity white grapes, dry, slightly acidic, very lightly spicy like clove and pepper. Fizzy carbonation, light body, dry mouthfeel: would qualify as a champagne beer imo.

gyllenbock (6285) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2015
Sample at Systembolaget. Hazy light orange with a white head. Aroma of yeast, fruit and something that reminded of "tutti-frutti". Sweet and with a similar taste. The finish was slightly sour. The body on the thin side. Quite interesting.

Bouteille 75 cl. Conservée couchée et périment fin 2016. Gros bruit a l ouverture du bouchon, mais pas d expulsion de bière. Levure active apparemment, premier verre clair léger trouble ensuite. Mousse fine qui tombe vite, ou nez ça sent la gueuze et ça va être acide/amer. Mais ça sent bon au dessus du verre. En bouche, ça se confirme, mais sans exagération dans aucune direction. On a du fruité abricot, figue et piquant gingembre accompagné de groseille blanche et un petit côté litchi voir longane, aucune astringence ne ferme la bouche, la bière reste super jusque fin de la bouteille, en effet, y avait un fond de levure. Une vraie réussite cette bière qui nous sort des sentiers battus.

mile (3572) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish aroma, light fruitiness - green apples and light sourness with light spiciness (coriander). Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, light caramel, light fruitiness - green apples with faint spiciness. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, light fruitiness - green apples and light sourness, faint spiciness. Bit thin and too soft/meek. This fig juice just does not work here.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
750 ml bottle. Pours a veiled and flaky pale amber-golden with a thin, yet resilient, white head. Aroma is oldish, lemon, vanilla and bread. Flavor is oldish, brettish, peach, pear, apple and barn. Finish is lemon, lime, dusty, vanilla and herbs. Lingering funk and tropicalness. Light to medium body, frothy, creamy mouthfeel and average to strong carbonation. Superb!
