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...

Bottle sample from notes. Pours a hazy orange color with a large fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart fruit, figs, raisins, floral notes, pale malts, some earthy character, funk, yeast, decent.

On tap at Avenue Pub. Pours a cloudy gold with large thick off white head that lasts. The aroma is yeast, spice, dark fruit, wood. Medium body, yeast, fig, spice, light finish, decent.

Bottle. Hazy orange beer, big fizzy white head. Fruity nose, some barnyard, caramel, spice notes. Flavor is fruity with tart notes, some acidity, sweetness. Barnyard kicks in in the finish along with yeast and spice notes. Crisp carbonation. Pretty refreshing.

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 (4210) - 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 (2890) - 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...

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.

martjoobolut (4814) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle (from Koht, Tallinn). Pours amber with huge beige head. The head stays. Aroma is fruity, apricots, malt, some sweetness. Flavor is sweet and sour, fruity, apricots, citrus, some alcohol. Overall: good.
