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

TET (1812) - 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 (3569) - 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 (3167) - 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 (3601) - 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 (2519) - 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.

Mortlach (1037) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 14, 2014
On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Unclear amber appearance with big white head. Aroma is yeasty with spices, malt, some floral notes and yellow fruits. Taste is medium sweet at first, then balanced by hops, malt, bread, some fruits and grass, dry and crisp, well done! Medium to full body, medium carbonation. A fantastic belgian saison.

popery (1499) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Orangey amber in color. Opaque with haze. Big puffy off white head. Very good retention, though it’s a touch fizzy. The aroma is grass, lemons, fresh grain, very light caramel, peppercorn, a little mint. Big bready malt. Lots of spice and grassy hops. The taste is dry and moderately bitter. Tasty grain background. A little citrus. Fairly dusty with maybe a little cheesy funk. Easy to drink and refreshing. Lots of pleasant saison flavors bouncing around. Lots of carbonation. Fairly prickly. Settles into a full, round feel. Excellent saison.

Palme (3606) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2014
On tap @ Una. A light clouded orange golden one with a nice small lacing off-white head. Really nice sweetish fruity nose with grapefruit, lots of melon and that yeast.. Lovely saison yeasty! Yeah, this is one saison smelly lovely saison. Lots of flavor also! Definitely a bit sweet, but also balanced with a near soapy zesty bitterness. Lots of good things here. Melon, cantaloupe and green grapes. Lovely. I’ll actually go have another one cause this one is empty - and there’s nothing else I really want on the board. 19.09.2014

Bottle from Humulus. Pop! Clear sparkling amber in the glass, rocky white head... towards the bottom of the bottle, a few flecks of hop and yeast in evidence. Bready Belgian malt aroma, with a touch of fruity tartness. Big carbonaton, champagne-like palate but without being bone dry. Peppery, fruity yeast character, more bready malt, and a touch of herbal hop character before a dry finish. Nice.
