this is great stuff, a funky tart dry saison brewed with fig juice. i have almost no experience with fig juice at all, so to pinpoint its contribution here is difficult. i expected sweetness, but instead its more of an earthy tart character, and almost all in the finish. the nose smells a little like fresh figs, but more saison yeast and the belgian green bottle skunk, although less of that in this one than many others. wheat and pils malts appear to make up the base, while the fig juice adds that cool earthy thing. the saison yeast does a real nice job of drying it up, i am quite surprised the alcohol content isnt higher than it is. dry finish, perhaps a little under carbonated, although it isnt really, the body is just so light and the finish so quick that its all gone and it fools me into thinking its a little flat. i wouldnt mid just a little more fig character in this, but i am impressed with it on the whole, and think its a very clever brew. havent seen much done with figs...
