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...

Pours light copper with a huge head that wants to jump straight out of the glass. Aroma is restrained funk, sourness and dust with not so much fruits and spices. Taste is not puckering, really just a soft sour and quite dry. Carbonation level is medium-high enhancing the drinkability of this beer IMO. Not so much fig in the flavor but there is a strange woody (I’d describe it as woody) that takes a while to get used to. Would I drink this again? Yes. Would I go out of my way for it? No.

daje (2729) - NORWAY - JUL 30, 2015
On tap at Nedre Foss Gård, july 17th 2015. Hazy golden with a rather big lasting head. Fruity aroma with barnyard. Taste adds peppers and pear, with a sweet chunky taste I believe is the figs. Mild spicy aftertaste. Not sure if I’m a fan of fig juice in saisons, but a cool idea.

Nästintill hel klar, gul-lätt orange, guld färgat och snabbt försvinnande skum. Doft: Malt, belgo, parfym,lite jenka, lite syrligt. Smak: Som doft, bara att ta bort lite framför jenka.

Senap (469) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2015
Väldigt syrlig men samtidigt rätt uppfriskande. Mycket grumlig och rödbrun. Rätt vid rätt tillfälle.

ClubGonzo (4726) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Hazy amber body with a hay, figs, sulfur, straw and hints of red berries, mild bready tones and strange meaty notes. Taste is strange fruity tones, meat, straw, bread and hints of caramel and red berries. Medium body, high carbonation. Weird, and not completely pleasant, but interesting at least. Hard to rate this one.

Bottle shared with BBGTC. Hazy deep golden body. Aroma is highly sulfury with hints of stables and hay. Taste is light tart with more sulfur. Not quite sure about this but it pairs well with food/cheese. Medium body and co2

dodskenta (91) - Rönninge, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2015
Really nice amber hue with a fast setteling beige head. Nose is tart, funky belgian yeast, dark fruits, fresh grass. Flavour is malty sweetness that mixes nicely with the tartness. Yeasty fruits and banana. Bit thin in my opinion but it’s the first time trying this style. I quite like it.
