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...

Fresh out of the fridge, this definitely needs some settling down, as it is overly carbonated and produces a huge meringue-like head. Once warmed and aerated, its a nice golden brew, heady with aromas. Grassy, lemon-pepper, hints of various fruits, cider, toffee-malt, whiskey and a bit of cheesy yeast. The beer is distinctly, though subtly sour, with a slightly clean finish. Classicly, farmhouse-style, this is a great refresher, especially for fans of sour ales. I preferred this over their Seasonal Moneuse, which may have been a bit stale.

Pours unclear amber yellow with a modest white head which soon disappears. Aroma is biscuits. Boy, I sure do hope the taste outperforms the aroma. Taste is syrupy, slight corn, weak sour, moderate conserved fruit sweetness.

Pana obfita, drobna i średnia, całkiem trwała, choć szkła nie zdobi. Barwa pomarańczowa, mętna. Aromat dziki, są nuty stajni, siana, trawy cytrynowej, w tle suszone morele, świeże figi. W smaku kwaskowe, czuć ten sfermentowany sok figowy, przypominający domowej produkcji wino z kwiatów modraka, powtarzają się motywy funky z aromatu, przejrzałe brzoskwinie, mirabelki. Goryczka pestkowo głogowa, nieduża, choć dość długa, potęgowaną lekką cierpkością. Wysycenie wysokie, szampańskie. Fajne piwo, lekko dzikie, orzeźwiające, całkiem sesyjne, aczkolwiek brak mi tu większej ilości estrów, owoców, belgijskich nut znanych z Saisonów czy Tripli, ewentualnie amerykańskich chmieli... Możliwe, że refermentacja spowodowała całkowite przetworzenie cukrów resztkowych na alkohol - piwo jest wytrawne, pozbawione słodyczy i wyraźnie rogrzewające, warto byłoby spróbować świeżej warki.

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.
