19th July 2008. Brow beer brewed with fig juice. Not sweet at all .Toffee bitterness plus a hint of fig. Quite drinkable but was hoping for something more sumptuos.

Oakes (15805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2008
Golden-brown. Clear, but sufficiently dark so as not to see through it. No head. Figgy aroma with date syrup, tomato and a piloncillo like dark sugar note. Soft, somewhat chewy but the sugars tone it down. Understated bitterness and a warming finish. Fits in somewhere between a dubbel and an old ale. One of Hebrew’s better efforts.

bhensonb (14162) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Bomber from the Coop in Davis, CA. A great, or at least very good, place to seek beer. Pomegranate color. Sort of a beige smear for head. Medium dark fruit aromas - might be ripe fig. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. Starts sweet and fruity (fig newton?). Lightly bitter. This is a weird combo which I have no recollection of tasting before. A little thin for the high ABV. Still, different is good. I can imagine coffee in here. Can you take seriously a brewer who never brews? Who always comes up with new strange stuff? Well, we better, cause no one else is coming up with crazy brews like these folks. Finish is damn near cola. Dry it’s not, but it has me believing it’s balanced. And the commercial blurb challenges the guys at Lagunitas for silly verbosity. I’m looking forward to the next release.
