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.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Cloudy gold color with lots of sediment. Huge, loose head. Gentle aroma that’s slightly herbal and slightly sugary. Flavor is balanced with plenty of Belgian yeastiness and a mildly bitter aftertaste. The beginning of the beer, the first flavor on the tongue, is a tad watery, but it pretty quickly fills out. It’s just a slightly odd sensation. A nice, pleasant, accessible beer.

Flaska från SB, ca 1 år gammal. Orangedisig vätska med rejält högt vitt skum. Syrlig, unken doft av spya och svett. Smaken har inledningsvis kvar något av syrligheten men ger sedan utrymme åt en del beska, belgojäst och bittert hö. En aning sötma anas i bakgrund. Kroppen torr och sträv.

McNeillR (2032) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 24, 2015
Debt dark golden haze but visible carbonation and a lovely white cap. Nose is creamy dusty spice and straw. Initial taste is creamy lemon pepper and soft zest. Very firm carbonation and peppery yet creamy mouthfeel. Finishes bright bright chalky lemon and a bit sickly yeasty linger. Pear. Loads of pear then.
