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.

Hazy dark yellow with low head. aroma is sweetish, completed, not so strong and only a bit old. Some fruits and flowers. Taste is strongly sourish, old apples, light juice, water, birch juice, sour fruits. Nice!

yourilevesque (1109) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Dégustée en accompagnement d’une salade de concombres sunomono et d’un filet de morue citronné. Couleur ambrée, robe non filtrée, mousse abondante et non persistante. Un nez qui verse dans la levure gomme balloune, le poivre blanc, des fleurs jeunes et fraîchement ouvertes. Des arômes printaniers, emballés dans cette levure Belge que je connais par coeur et que j’affectionne tout autant. Un corps presque moyen, presque mince; aérien. Les bulles qui explosent dans ma bouche allègent considérablement le tout et confèrent à ce liquide typiquement Belge, une minéralité qui lui va à ravir. Saveurs peu complexes mais peu me chaud. Une délicate figue me salue de la main sans toutefois faire de bruit, accompagnée de cette levure a qui on a confié le premier rôle. Des raisins rouges à l’arrière-goût et des notes délicatement boisées. On apprécie cette bière pour sa délicatesse et son agréable compagnie.

De nouveau une très belle bière tout en fraîcheur et en fruit, la bouche est finement acidulée et d’une belle longueur, la finale est raffraîchissante. Une bière de plaisir.

At Mrk’s. Bottle courtesy of Maakun. Hazy pale orange/ darkngolden. Little head. Figs reprazent! Figgy bizzness, caramel. Fruity sweet, very light sour and salty. Some mineral/chrystal texture going on. Interesting table beer, bit like a gose, also makes me think of medieval times. Like!

Big bottle shared. Slight hazy dark golden with short lasting bubbly white head. Sour fruits, rotten mango, figs, quite dusty, cotton, dank cellar notes, rotten weeds, light grains and herbs. Light sweet and sour with soft herbal bitter finish. Medium bodied with nice mouth coating carbonation. Quite nice, but a bit too dusty.

Rask0lnikov (502) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 17, 2016
A bit hazy amber colour. Medium white head. Fruity, acidic, juicy, refreshing aroma. Sour, fruity beginning. Reminds a bit home made beers, because of hints of dark bread and raisins in the middle. But it is interesting. Sour, fruity finish. Light bodied, medium carbonated, refreshing and interesting brew. Worth to taste and enjoy.

Pours an amber body with a medium head. Fruity aroma. Taste is a bit weird for a beer, it is probably the fig juice. It isn’t bad in any way, just not what’s expected. The taste does however go very well with the rest of the beer and balances well. In other word, interesting :)

W aromacie początkowo uderzenie brettów, mocno wiejsko, prawie jak lambic, z czasem więcej nut saisona, owocowych, dominuje słodka, czerwona pomarańcza - jest dobrze! W smaku wytrawnie, na poły soczyście (pomarańcza, brzoskwinia), na poły zbożowo, mocno nagazowane przy całkiem sporej pełni, leciutka kwaskowość owocowa - pewnie skutek użycia fig. Pijalne, bardzo smaczne!
