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.

lello4ever (196) - ITALY - FEB 8, 2015
Belga interessante. Colore arancio pieno, schiuma non troppo persistente, alcolica con 8% eppure non si sentono, un amaro nel finale che resta al palato rispetto al sapore appena appena dolce e fruttato iniziale, anche speziato e secco direi. Una saison da provare.

bytemesis (4089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours crystal clear amber, very large off-white head, dissipates fairly slowly leaving nice lacing behind. Aroma is dusty, black pepper, hay, Belgian yeast, some honey/caramel, earthy. Flavor is light sweet and light bitter, with that touch of honey once again. Herbal and field grass notes as well. Medium body, high carbonation.

Fat på Söder om Småland. Smak och doft av jäst, vete, apelsin, jord, hö med toner av koriander, örter och aprikos. Lagom sötma, fruktig och fin beska.

TET (1946) - FINLAND - JAN 17, 2015
A beautiful and lively beer, color is slightly reddish-yellow, a head is big, blond and clouding. The nose is fresh and fruitful, oranges and lemon, some sourness and spices, hint of bananas. Taste is fruitful, pears, some sourness and spicyness. Nice, sour and spicy aftertaste. Medium bodied, strong carbonation that is nicely smooth. Great balance, frutful saison. This feels better than aroma and taste indicates.

joeneugs (3816) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 17, 2015
On draft at the Trappist. It pours a mostly clear rich, gold color with a nice off white head. The aroma is lightly malty with some honey, stone fruit, peach and a rustic, dusty yeast note. The flavor is really nice with some mildly sweet maltiness, good fruity notes of mild peach and plum. Good amount of floral/spicy bitterness. The yeast profile is mildly spicy and phenolic. Warming alcohol in the finish with more honey, florals, dry toasty malt and peppery phenolics. Very tasty stuff that opens up and gets more complex as you drink it.

mile (3313) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle. Dark golden, hazy, large and mostly lasting head. Moderate malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, light fruitiness and spiciness (coriander, light pepper), light citrus and faint hoppyness. Body is medium, malty - lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, light caramel, light fruitiness and faint spiciness, faint hoppyness and alcohol. Finish is short to average malty - faintly wheaty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and spiciness with faint hoppyness, light alcohol. Sweetish saison with caramel. Could use more bitterness to balance caramel sweetness and alcohol.

Vaiz (3734) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle at home. Huge gusher, lost most of the bottle. Hazy golden pour, creamy white head. Aroma is quite spicy, slightly fruity, some citrus and some yeast. Flavor is slightly bitter, spicy and quite dry. Decent body and smooth texture. Wish I would have more left after the gushing...

tectactoe (2944) - Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Cloudy, rich amber body with a sudsy, foamy, slight off-white cap that perches nicely on top. Aroma of hay, farmhouse must, light mushroom-y earthiness, strawberry flavored Pez candy, Belgian yeast, moderately fruity & spicy esters, musky barnyard floor, & faint driftwood. Flavor is very dry, full of yeast, & plenty of barnyard floor funk. Mild cork, dry wood, mild wild strawberry fruits, hints of clove & Belgian spice, mildew laden cork, & plenty of earthy funk. Dry, some funky old cotton notes, & a semi-fruity finish with a little bit of citrus, melon, & a ton of barnyard floor. Fluffy, effervescent mouth feel.
