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...

Really nice beer. Cork flew out of the bottle with little resistance. Pours an apricot colored brew with a huge white head. Flavors hint at peaches and mangos with a slight underlying yeast funkiness. Very enjoyable.

bluejacket74 (1972) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2017
750 ml caged and corked bottle, no date I could find on it. Served in a Blaugies chalice, the beer pours an orange/amber color with a couple inch off-white head that stuck around for a while. There’s a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and earthy, the brew smells like wheat/grainy malt, grassiness, figs, peppery spice and some citrus. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some white grape and apple (both sweet and tart) flavors noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, its high but soft carbonation makes it creamy, smooth and easy to drink. I think this is a good overall brew, I liked it. Certainly worth picking up!

Zlotta (2928) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2017
0.75 l bottle from ’Rudat’, best before December 2018. Clear, amber with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish-sourish, moderately fruity, slightly grassy-spicy, a bit funky-dusty aroma of lemon peel, hay and dark fruits (figs). A bit sour, quite fruity, moderately grassy-spicy and a little funky taste of lemon, gooseberry, figs, oak and hints of white grapes, followed by a medium long, moderately tart, slightly grassy-spicy and very dry finish. Thin to medium body, moderately astringent and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very interesting, really refreshing, I like it!

Bottle in the Salt Horse, Edinburgh shared with Pix. Golden with a foamy off white head. Funky aroma with Belgian yeast notes. The taste has mildly sour light cider notes along with grain. Refreshing and pleasant.

En bouche, jus de figues, citron, levures légères, sucre à glacer. Très doux en bouche, le coté saison est bien caché par le fruit. Texture huileuse et juteuse, corps mince à moyen.
