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...

Interesting, different, good. Smooth saison-style sour fiinish, excellent head, nice texture, etc. Fig is slight but adds to the richness here.One of the most interesting to be had in Estonia

jamestulloch (3771) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Hazy amber body with a thin off-white head that fades. Steady carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of fig, caramel and earth. Flavour of bread, light salted caramel and peanuts. Thin body with a watery texture. Light fizz. It’s very thin and light but there’s a nice rustic flavour to this.

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 15, 2016
Feb. ’16. A 0.75 l bottle that poured lightly hazy deep golden body with medium sized, nice yellow hued head. Lightly sour aroma, cidery, fresh, fruity, but weak. Flavor was lightly sour, too, with subtle notes of apples, figs (I was right now when I read the commercial) and spices. However, it was all weak, unimpressive with watery, thin body and almost non existent, mildly sour finish. Seemed like some stupid experiment like saison-sour? Now it makes more sense from the description, but it’s still a waste of money. Unless you’ll pretend to enjoy it when you already paid, what, 20 euro...

solidfunk (8304) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Some light bretta and a little barnyard funk. A hint of bubblegum and old hay. Golden pour with great head and lacing. Tangy finish with some citrus. Good balance, and interesting. Tap at The Sovereign.

ALIBALI (1285) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2016
Feige schmeck ich zwar nicht, aber ansonsten ist dieses mit mit einem üppigen Korpus ausgestattet, der am auffälligsten durch seine Milde besticht. Säure & Würze spielt auch einen Rolle. Interessant. 0,1/1Jetson beim ZYTHOS BEER FESTIVAL 2016 in Leuven.

yourilevesque (1658) - Montréal, 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.

Ysok02 (1264) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAR 27, 2016
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.
