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.

Ungstrup (30009) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2005
A very explosive beer. The color is hazy orange with some sediment of yeast floating around, and a huge whipped cream off-white head. The aroma is sweet spicy and fruity - I pick up coriander, yeast, peaches, and oranges. The flavor is sweet and very fruity, but also spicy, with the spiciness balancing the sweetness well. It has notes of oranges, cloves, citrus, and cardemome. The mouthfeel is very carbonated and the end very dry.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2007 (Bottle 75 cl) Very beautiful amber, with an exceptionally huge, rocky head. Some haze. Very high in carbonation (as with most Blaugies beers) and hence rather quenching. Spicy almost herbal notes in there on a malty background. Has some of the fustiness so often found in artisanal Belgians - it’s very much either/or if you like it. Rather bitter finish. 280597

oh6gdx (22105) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle (from thebelgianbeershop.com). Slightly hazy orangeish golden colour with mediumsized creamy beige head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, earthy with some slight notes of berries and alcohol. Flavour is quite much the same in a nice balance. Leaves a nice earthy/spicy/fruity aftertaste with some slight warming alcohol as well.

omhper (20759) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2007
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy golden, rich airy head. Minerally and orangey. Densely malty with balanced sweetness. Complex with some indistinct spicynessMinerals and hops dry it out towards the finish. A beer with a balance and richness out of the ordinary.

fiulijn (16214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2005
Corked bottle
Hazy blond color. Malty aroma, good malty taste and the typical Belgian hops. A classic Belgian Stgrong Ale, very good, showing at the end a light liquorice character.

Travlr (15204) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Deep copper color with an enormous white head that melts gradually and leaves wonderful lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel and licorice. Flavor has good malts, caramel, butterscotch, dried fruits, and a dry, grassy finish. Complex and interesting, classic example of the style.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 Bottle, 75cl. Tasted at the Delirium Tremens cafe in Gothenburg. Had Håkan, the manager, to pick this to go with Trappist-cheeses. Maybe I am a bit influenced by the setting in this rating, but I did my best not to. It is a lovely beer, hazy and amber in colour, with a high, dense, white head. A mild, vinous, yet sweet taste with candisugar. Round aftertaste. The alcohol content is well disguised. Rating: 7-4-8-4-17-4. (051008)

Bottle, 37.5cl corked. The cork came off like a rocket, but no gushing. It pours an orange-golde body with lots of microfloaties and a big off-white head. Some alcohol on the nose, but far from unpleasant, along with fruits and sugars. Some cellar in the mouth, with white sugar, some alcohol and grapes too. Lasting herbal, bitter finish. Full-bodied and almost sticky. Definately not a big beer, dangerously drinkable and very tasteful. (090213)
