La Moneuse is named for A. J. Moneuse (b. 1768), a famous local bandit and gang leader, and ancestor of the brewers’ family. It is a classic "saison" beer by virtue of its strength and its earthy, aged quality. It has a hardy, semi-dry malt character, a fresh but not overpowering hoppiness, abundant yeasty, fruity flavors and a fairly strong, but pleasant and enticing mustiness.

TURDFERGUSON (4004) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a cloudy orange layered with dark yellow with a ready white head that is retained throughout. nose is semi-dry as suggested, a little bit of Belgian Tripel like candi sugar like esters, light grass, bread, frosted cake. Flavor is more dry than nose suggests, bread, light herbal and grass. A tad on the boozy side, but still very good. Shocked I never rated this back in the day. Glad to have this back on the shelves in NC.

Bottled 750ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Clear golden coloured, small white to off-white head, mild fruity nose. Moderate malty, yeasty, fruity and mild spicy with notes of peach and light alcohol. Dryish spicy finish. Not bad but rather ordinary brew.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2015
75cl bottle bought at Brassigaume [out the back of the brewer’s van ... ;) ]. Pours initially golden with a massive head. As the head quickly settles and becomes denser, the beer darkens to copper. Aroma is funky with sweet hops, honey. Flavour is sweet, hoppy, biting, soothing. Very nice beer. One more please!
