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.

Golden pour from 22 oz bottle. Heavy foam but typical saison. Taste is a bit funky with a hay flavor. Good alcohol pct for a saison. Enjoyed it, would try again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (2269) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a huge rocky head that dissipates little by little. Big farmyard nose with apple and pear, wet hay, cobwebs. Very earthy with some manure notes as well. Full-on farmyard. Highly carbonated and a little fruity sweetness, but as the finish starts the bitterness kicks in. Dry finish with peppery hops. A lot going on and great for the price. Hides the alcohol very well.

ksiwzos (120) - GREECE - AUG 2, 2016
Funky aroma, sweet wortish, light caramel sweetness with some fruity notes and some floral overtones. Light amber with white head that lasts and laces. Taste is spicy phenols with candy sugar sweetness, some very light tartness and very smooth bitterness. There is an obvious amount of funkiness all over but not very intense. Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, too drinkable for it’s alcohol content.

heavy (2736) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
May ’16. A 0.75 l bottle that poured hazy orange body with a big head. Nice fruity aroma, mostly peach and lemon with a touch of yeast. Flavor was lightly sweet, too, fruity, yeasty (although not as much as it could be judged by thick bottle sediment) and only lightly peppery hoppy. Highly carbonated with occasional metallic and muddy yeast notes. Thin to medium bodied with moderately long finish. Alcohol was not felt at all, making it really easy going and dangerously refreshing even on a hot summer day like this. One of the tastier Saisons around, for sure, almost like an average "Belgian ale" proper to be ironic. Or just objective? :) Anyway, it was fine.

750 ml bottle in vejbystrand. Slightly golden with big white head. Aroma malty, yeasty, banana, sweet bread and slight cloves. Taste is sweet bready, yeast, banana, cloves with a medium sweet yeasty finish. Tastes like a Belgian hefeweisen
