COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at Eiderdown, Louisvile, KY. Aroma: Fruity, estery. Pear, slightly vinous. Apperance: dark gold pour, fine white head faded fast. Flavor: fruity (pear, apple), floral hops (hint), slight alcohol hint. Nicely bitter finish with a slight alcohol warmth. Palate: medium, slightly effervescent. OA: very tasty example of a saison. Quite refreshing and deceptively strong.

Alusmamuts (911) - LATVIA - JUN 13, 2015
Amber-oramge with rich light beige head. Malty aroma. Good complex taste: dry malt mixed with some fruity sweetsourness and follwed by medium strong bitrness, both components remains in the aftertaste.

MichaelAwesome (5552) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2015
Das Bier hat eine leicht trübe golden-braune Farbe mit einem schnell verschwindenden Schaum und einer recht starken Kohlensäure. Der Geruch erinnert an Dachboden, Heu, Getreide, Brot und Hopfen. Geschmacklich steht das Bier dem Aroma in nichts nach, dazu gesellt sich dann noch eine leichte Gerstennote. Sehr interessantes Bier, jedoch nichts für mich.

The beer has got a hazy golden-strawy colour with a small head and medium body. Aroma of hops, flowers and yeast. Taste of malt, hops, barley, straw, flowers, grains, bread, basement and yeast. Smooth to drink, good one.

Bottle from bieresgourmet.com. Pours a hazy orange-amber body with a huge foamy white head. Nose is citrus peel, hay, straw, hints of caramel, grains and hints of manure (!) and Belgian ale yeast. Taste is caramel, grains, hay, white sugar and prunes. Medium body, high carbonation. Nice enough Belgian with some strange tones.
