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.

marazzurro (1) - catania, ITALY - FEB 25, 2015 does not count
Birra di corpo intenso , non filtrata dal colore arancione denso . Presenta traccia di lieviti che ne caratterizzano sia l aspetto torbido che il gusto . Schiuma abbondante molto compatta e persistente di colore chiaro . Si presenta molto frizzante , Poco profumata con sentori fruttati,cereali e frutta secca . Finale piacevole ma moderato A mio avviso per godersela si dovrebbe far riposare nel bicchiere qualche minuto ,meno frizzante rende di piu sprigionando I vari aromi.

beer_est_deus (860) - örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2015
Dimmig, guld-orange med ett stort, orange-lite khaki färgat skum. Doft: Jäst, vete, belgo, hårda karameller, tulsi, nyklippt gräs, sommar i skogen. Smak: Belgo, jäst, vete, knäckebröd, gräs, örter/växter, humle, söt malt, apelsin marmelad. För kraftigt kolsyrad, får skvimpa runt ölen för att smakerna ska komma fram och inte bara en massa kolsyra i munnen.

erickok (4248) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 22, 2015
Shining amber body with, depending in the amount of yeast poured, clear to misty body. Fruity aroma, more so than most beers nowadays called Saison. Also has farmy yeast, French bread, some darker grains. Quite a crisp body, helped by the heavy carbonation. I think this would age and improve greatly, as there’s not much hop but a superb body, rustic and full of potential. In all honestly it’s far from the collaboration they did with Hill Farmstead, but then again, that way my favourite beer of 2014. This is still great. (75cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

Cunningham (5463) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2015
Nice hazy dark golden color with a fine off white head that last. Good lacing. Some yeast, banana and wheat. Nice smooth body with a fine carbonation that made it easy to drink. Was worried that it was a bit to high carbonation because the enormous head. But it was very pleasant to drink. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. Somehow it felt like a hefe weisse. Lovely balanced flavor with some yeast, mild banana, whaetish and mild spiced. Really lovely ale.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order, Sweden]
