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...

Ungstrup (29699) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2005
Another explosive beer from Brasserie de Blaugies. When opened it just came foaming out, which gives it a huge head when first poured, but the head collapses only leaving slight curtains on the glass, but there are yeast specs in the off-white head. And the beer is an unclear orange. The aroma is quite sweet and quite fruity combined with hints of spice and yeast, but also a touch of dustiness. The flavor is sweet fruity combined with a slight acidity like a grapefruit, and is quite spicy with coriander and cloves. The end is very dry - spicy and woody. I don’t pick up the figs.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Golden with a gigantic head and the typical Blaugies super carbonation. Lovely dry with some undefinable spices - none that appears very fig-like though. Actually this is more down Orval alley, although without the refined complexity of this beer. But still a nice one. 111097

omhper (19809) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy golden with rich head and lots of sediment. Fruity,lightly raisiny aroma. Sweetish with pleasant malt and yeast character. The body is however a bit thin, an the character of the fig juice and hardly noticable. Subtle, and a bit lacking in body.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Crisp beer. Sourish. Caramel and fruit. I guess it must be the figs imparting the sourness. Refreshing. Nice beer!

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2004
Golden color; wonderful perlage; huge rocky head. Very nice Triple aroma: coriander, cork, light yeast. Quite dry mouthfeel, with a very light sourness, but below expectations.

Bottle. Gusher. Huge head with excellent duration. Color is hazy amber with some floaties. Aroma and taste are tart fruits, little caramel, malt and hops. A little acidic and also a bit odd.
