Darbyste (ABV 5.8%) from Brasserie de Blaugies is named for John Darby, a preacher of temperance whose followers were oddly moved by a 'soft drink' they insisted was just fig juice . . . It is a saison made with wheat and fermented with fig juice. A variant of the Belgian "Wit" or "Blanche" style, but a little drier and a lot more substantial and flavorful. The figs are not evident in the flavor, which is lemony and dry. Very spritzy, as a saison should be – be careful popping the cork! rating: 86 (out of 100) 12.7 oz (corked) bottle.

Brasserie de Blaugies was founded in 1987 by married schoolteachers Marie-Noëlle Pourtois and Pierre-Alex Carlier, who are adventurous in recreating traditional farmhouse beer styles. Their tiny brewery is built into the garage of a comfortable farmhouse, and is operated by Pourtois, Carlier, and their two sons. Their output is small, but so well-crafted that it's highly regarded among connoisseurs of fine Belgian Ales.
