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.

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.

eduardovl (915) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
375ml bottle bottle served in a chalice. A: Pours an orange to amber color forming a huge yellow head. High retention and many lacings left. Very dirty beer. Many chuncks can be seen floating in its bottom S: Quite "Belgium" on the nose. Mainly because of the very bready Belgian yeasts. Caramel, caramel malts, spicies (notes of coriander), honey, white grapes and earthly hops T: Follows the nose. Very bready fruity an "winy". Smell reminds a white wine. Spicy too. Upfront is slightly sweet but in overall it’s not sweet and the end is mild bitter M: Medium creamy body. Good carbonation. Bitter sweet Belgian style) O: Very drinkable but heavy beer. Well done, anyway. A winner [ BA Review @ 5/14/2012 ]

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.

Beer4000 (4565) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2014
On tap @ Kick. Unclear deep orange body with a small, lacing off-white head. Nice, quit mild spicy aroma with fruit and berries, light malty. Flavor is sweet, smooth pale malt, spicy yeast, some fruit and not much bitterness. Fine body and pleasant aftertaste. Balanced all the way, subtle complexity with really high drinkability.

Draught @ Gastropuben KICK Malt & Mat, Kristiansand
Pours slightly hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, yeast and hint of pepper and some fruits. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a fruity, slightly malty and pepper finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

NordicV (1194) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2014
Lätt dimmig orange öl med vitt småbubbligt skum. Doft av deg, halm, citrus och lätt funkighet. I smaken tillkommer en pepprighet. Torr munkänsla. Döljer alkoholen mycket väl.

Alengrin (2331) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
Classic ’strong saison’ since 1988. Off-white, thick, rocky head leaving pretty lacing on the edge of the glass, warm orange blonde colour, clear but gradually becoming more cloudy as the bottle is emptied. The aroma is a pleasant combination of fresh, sweet fruitiness (orange, pineapple, apple peel, melon) and an earthy, saison-like spicines (pepper, hay, nutmeg, herbal hops) with further impressions of bread, honey, biscuit, sherry. Fruity taste, fresh citrussy touch, light caramel malts, vaguely sweetish but above all dominated by an appetizing, spicy, earthy, rooty dryness stretching deep into the finish, where leafy hops and gin-like alcohol appear. Great example of its style, like all of Blaugies’ beers.

Draft at Edmunds Oast. Cloudy golden pour with a large frothy white head. Nose presents peppery yeast, earthiness, orange and lemons peels and wet dough. Palate is fairly dry with musty yeast flavors, earthy, citrus peels and peppercorns. Rustic and delicious.

BenoitLhoest (3) - Liège, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2014 does not count
Mousse dense et crémeuse par dessus un liquide orange clair, troublé, doré, effervescent. Nez frais rappelant le pamplemousse, amertume franche, désaltérante, malt riche, nourrissant. Une vraie merveille.
