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.

rodenbach99 (3619) - Longueuil, Quebec, - DEC 4, 2012
Bouteille de 750ml. Bouchon de liège. À consommer de préférence avant 2016. Bouteille offerte par Patrick. Bière dorée avec une mousse beige à grosses bulles. Le nez est bien houblonné, il y un côté de vomi agréable (dur à croire), des bretts sillonnent le tout. La bouche est un peu suret, agréable, mordante. La finale est bien houblonnée. Lisez Viper et Slovak pour une description plus exhaustive, je suis tout à fait d’accord avec eux.

SlackerMads (2226) - DENMARK - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle. Hazy orange with a large frothy off white head with good retention. Nose is slightly sweet with notes of fruit and berries; raspberry, peach, candied orange, hay, dry grass. Same thing goes for the flavour, it has some candied fruit, pear, flowers, raspberries, apricot, light pepper, hayloft, musty. So much going on. Medium body, initial sweetness is lifted by the fluffy prickling carbonation and the finish is light bitter and dry with lingering fruity notes. Very enjoyable.

Been awhile. Light, hazy golden pour. Big white head that quickly falls. Plenty of lacing. Aroma is slightly hoppy, slightly. Funky lemony note. Yeast taste with some of the citrus notes coming through. Okay. I guess.

Akiro (22) - ITALY - AUG 8, 2015
Degu stata in bottiglia da 75 centilitri. Molta schiuma persistente bel colore oro torbido. Al palato leggermente amara buon retrogusto secco. Corpo equilibrato. Birra carica da conversazione. Una leggera nota balsamica la rende ancora più gradevole.

JBPortland (1216) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 13, 2015
750ml bottle pours cloudy burnt orange with huge fluffy 3-4 finger head. Nose is wet earthy dough, light spice, yeasty pepper, old citrus, grain. Taste is full bodied, lots of grainy earthy wet malts, balanced by spicy yeast, peppery, some apple and orange zest. Finishes dry, a little bit boozy on the tail end, a faint hint of copper, chewy damp cereal, spicy grain and wheat fields. Pretty classic saison, on the "big" side.
