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...

[bottled] Hazy yellowish copper color. Fruity, tart aroma- almost sour. Flavors are quite spicy, full of citrus and phenolic yeast character. Apple and pear fruits combine for a nice dry, tart finish.

juffage (136) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle from the Grove, Huddersfield. Wow, this is badass and unusual. The fig flavour is actually kind of light, but somehow this is way more unusual than your average saision. Brown murky with fluffy head. A little musty and funky flavour, and a little lemon. Definite stewed prune/fig vibe. Very smooth. Dry finish. Do try this.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3429) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2015
Kind of a splurge at 12.50€ from Nuetnigenough but it was the only place I saw Blaugies beer. Got it to go and drank it along the Saint-Martin Canal. In the glass it looks like dense raw organic honey yet has a dense light beige head of foam leaves great sheets of belgian lace costing the glass. The aroma is complex, this is a saison par excellence: wheat, lemon, pepper a bit of tangy cloves. The taste is light and refreshing, mild tangy lemon, biscuity wheat, white pepper & cloves. Really nice easy drinking 5.8% I just wished I’d opened it when the sun was shining rather than at night. A brewery I will seek out on my next trip to Belgium. Man I didn’t get figs from this at all. This was also drunk fairly warm.

kapusil (832) - HUNGARY - AUG 20, 2015
0.75l bottle. Hazy deep orange body with a thin white head. Aroma of vinegar, candi sugar, apple cider and some funk. Taste of lemon zest, vinegar and candi sugar. I don’t get the figs at all. Interesting beer. It’s like a gueuze-faro-saison :-)
