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...

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2008
750ml bottle. Pours a very active foamy white head with a hazy golden color. Nose of lemon zest, dust, apples, spice, and mild tartness that lingers in the background. Initial taste of fruit, fig, apples, citrus and mild tang on the sides of the mouth. Finishing with an average palate duration. Absolute great head retention and minor lacing of the glass. Body is light, mouth feel was crisp and this was a very drinkable and enjoyable brew. Nice job.

downender (8882) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2008
375ml bottle. Lively pour with a deep, hazy orange colour, some floaters and an enormous white, foamy head. Aromas of figs, yeast, the barnyard and citrus fruit. Easy drinking with some fruit and tartness, yet a soft, slightly dry finish. Enjoyable.

thewolf (12801) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 13, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
Pours dark orange with a great, super, medium, creamy white head. Lots of bubbles in the liquid. Aroma is super fruity, lots of oranges and a bretty feel. Light carbonation, perhaps a bit thin. Flavour is quite fruity tart, apples, funkiness, caramel and lots of oranges. Unfortunately, the aftertaste disappears rather quickly.

BDR (2535) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2008
normally I hate beer that’s gone bad but this seems to be a terminal Brett infectiom. Sour aroma with a bit of citrus and fig. Very sour taste with a more noticable fig undercurrent

agl108 (1306) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2008
750 mL bottle at Flat Rock Saloon, different than that pictured here. Poured hazy amber with thin white head. Started extremeley sweet and faded into a dry, slightly spicy finish. Expensive, but worth the price tag once for a try.

3.5
OldMrCrow (2446) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2008
2005 bottle sampled March ’08 (750 ml)

Pours a light orange yellow with a nice white head, clear toward the top, hazy once I get further into the bottle. Dusty aroma, apple, bready malt notes, a bit of spice. Surprisingly tart flavor, malt vinegar and a bit of lemon, very slightly sweet early but with a dry close into saison and almost gueuze territory. Again dusty, bready, very mildly spiced. I wouldn’t have called it as brewed from fig juice. Interesting beer for certain, pleasant enough to drink, but not knocking my socks off.

yespr (47545) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2008
ZBF2008: From tap. Pours hazy deep orange to brown with a dense light orange head. Light spiced and caramel malty aroma. Dry to light sweetend. Ends dry and spiced.

BigBen2120 (687) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 8, 2008
750ml green bottle from A-1 To-Go in Gardiner. Pours a deep golden hazy body with an inch or so of off-white head. Smells like orange, lemon, spice, apple. Tastes citrusy, slightly malty, yeasty, slightly spicy. Rather dry. Mouthfeel is somewhat aqueous with moderate carbonation. Finishes rather clean, surprisingly. Tasty and complex and fairly drinkable. A solid Belgian, but not sure it was worth the 14$ price tag.

3.2
joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2008
Draught at ZBF 2008. Hazy golden coloured with a white head. Fruity aroma of spices, bananas and yeast. Fruity flavour of spices and yeast with notes of bananas.

3.2
Fin (10917) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2008
ZBF 2008 on the Saturday Poured on draught, Light amber in colour with a small white head. Some fruits on the nose and a bit syrupy as well, actually there is a little bit of sweet molassess also. Honey and a little sourness on the tongue, little bit shallower, almost with a etallic tinge, the figs are there maybe, soft mouthfeel, not quite up to the very high standards that Blaugies have shown with their other beers in my opinion.
