mathieuc (3496) - Québec, Quebec, - JAN 11, 2013
Pours light copper with a huge head that wants to jump straight out of the glass. Aroma is restrained funk, sourness and dust with not so much fruits and spices. Taste is not puckering, really just a soft sour and quite dry. Carbonation level is medium-high enhancing the drinkability of this beer IMO. Not so much fig in the flavor but there is a strange woody (I’d describe it as woody) that takes a while to get used to. Would I drink this again? Yes. Would I go out of my way for it? No.

SaintMatty (6956) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2016
750ml Bottle - Amber with a foamy head. Pear, figs and apple in the aroma. Fruity, spicy and fairly sweet taste. Sultanas, figs, spice and caramel. Bit too sweet for me.

haukur (1833) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - OCT 18, 2016
backlog. Cloudy golden. Aroma has peppery notes, with noble hops, gras and slight fig notes. Palate is balanced, figs are not overpowering. Complex

unclemike (2949) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Cloudy golden with rich head and lots of sediment. Fruity,lightly raisiny aroma. Sweetish with pleasant malt and yeast character. The body is however a bit thin, an the character of the fig juice and hardly noticable. Subtle, and a bit lacking in body

suurjuust (2998) - ESTONIA - JUN 24, 2016
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
