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.

750 ml bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have lemony citrus, herbal notes, dry toasted malts, light caramel, earthy, grass, pretty decent saison for one of my early entries to the style.

lusikka (5937) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber orange colour with a large frothy white head. Aroma of fresh floral notes, toffee, citrus and mild clove notes. Rich and rustic flavour of floral hops, rich citrusy tanginess, white bread, pepper, orange and herbs. Quite nice mild toffee sweetness. Medium bodied and a rich mouthfeel with lively carbonation. Very refreshing and rich. Alcohol is quite well hidden. Lovely.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2014
From the June 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml green bottle this beer poured a hazy golden-amber color with a huge fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish, tangy and yeasty with a hint of golden fruit. The flavor was dryish and malty with bread dough, must and a hint of golden fruits. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

Color cobrizo diáfano con espuma blanca ligera y abundante. Aromas de fruta verde algo débil. Cuerpo ligero, muy carbonatado con sabores suaves afrutados, ligeramente ácidos y un final seco. El regusto es afrutado y duradero. Buena.

Terminus (3214) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 5, 2014
bottle-received from the beer of the month club february 2014 sampled april 2014 Pours hazy orange with lots of particulates and yeast haze with a nice soapy fluffy white head and generous lacing. nose is musty, funky, cobwebs, like an attic. flavors follow suite with lots of funky yeast twang, earthy notes and some spice characteristics. much like a saison dupont in terms of its consistency. long funky finish with lots of yeast character, barnyard and some lite spice (mostly hops). a very solid saison if you ask me.
