Bottle. Brown with a frothy-creamy head. Very citrusy, surish-yeasty aroma - another of Valscura’s beers that reminds me of sour ales. Bready malt, orande, fruit bubble gum, fresh figs, plums, ripe apples. Light sour, full and soft taste, with a velvety carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. A soft bready maltiness combined with a ripe fruitiness that ends with a faint bitterness and an aftertaste of figs and plums. Delicious!
Fruity but complex and beery.

Cloudy red - brown beer. Small off white head. Smooth palate with moderate carbonation. Rich malts with an undertone of sugary fruits salad. Finishes semi dry with vague spice. Doesn’t quite gel for me, a bit cloying.

Bottle at Cropredy Festival, Cropredy, Nr Banbury, Oxon, Friday 12th August 2011 Craig brought this beer along and shared it, cheers Craig. Never realised that that this beer was fermented with figs, so I was quite pleased to be able to pick these out in my description along with over ripe plums dates, and soft dark sugars. It;s a touch sweet at first , but very fruity and most enjoyable. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.7

750 ml bottle courtesy of SHIG - thanks! Murky reddish brown, few edge bubbles. Wonderful fruit aroma upon opening the bottle! Taste is sweet and syrupy, low carbonation, medium body, no bitterness. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a dark coppery to light brown with a off white head. Aroma is dark fruit and fig. Taste is sweet malt which leaves way to a strong fig and metallic hops. The only thing fruit about this beer is the fig. One of the best beers I have tried this far from Valscura!

Saison al fico che aveva un discreto appeal in Birroteca; del tutto assente però - oltre la schiuma - anche la fragranza dell’aroma che mi sarei aspettato da una birra del genere; il principale problema è che credo non fosse molto a posto, il problema secondario è che anche a posto probabilmente non sarebbe niente di eccezionale.

Good, persistent yellow-orange head, copper-foxy beer. +/- roasted, caramelly, toffee nose, not fruity. Again toffee, pear-syrup, sirop de Liège . Bit of astringency, alcohol. Aftertaste yields incense and fusels; fiery MF. Some tasters find fresh figs. I don’t, for one. More fig/pear breadspread.
