750, corked and baled. This is evidently an older bottle. Not sure how much older, but it has the tan label with green text, and just calls itself "Moinette Belgian Ale." And it’s awesome.
Pours cloudy medium amber with bright gold highlights and a towering fluffy platinum blonde head. Big bold funks horse blanket and old wet grass nose. Almost overpowering at first, but not after a minute, and never unpleasant at all. Doesn’t show much lace but the film that sticks around is thick and egg-white-y.
Lovely creamy medium body with plenty of churning carbonation. Caramel, funky horseblanket, old wet grass, and a bit of herbal hop on the mid-palate. This is sooooo much more farmhouse than abbey, but who cares what they call it? It’s fantastic. I’ll snag any of these bottles I can get my hands on. Not sure how the stuff with the yellow label (pictured) is drinking.

Nez : la chouffe. Bouche : bien plus équilibrée, du malt léger, un houblonnage bien plus présent et finale plus sèche.

Color albicocca, velata dai lieviti, schiuma bianca di ottima persistenza. Aroma di lievito belga, erbaceo, miele, leggero frumento e leggero chiodo di garofano. Al palato stesse caratteristiche con un piacevole amaro erbaceo finale misto a miele. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata.

Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się drobno i średnio oczkowa, obfita, kremowa piana, trwała iładnie oblepiająca szkło. Barwa złota, opalizująca. Aromat lekko kwaskowy, lekko dziki (stajnia, spocona klacz), ze sporą ilością estrów (białe winogrona, brzoskwinie, ananas) i fenoli (czerwony pieprz). W smaku wszystko to co w zapachu, choć jest więcej rodzynkowo biszkoptowej słodyczy, kwaskowatości praktycznie brak. Oczywiście sporo brzoskwiń, moreli, winogron, białego wina, trawy cytrynowej i pieprzu w różnych kolorach na finiszu. Goryczka niska, ziołowa migdałowa. Alkohol perfekcyjnie ukryty. Nagazowanie dość wysokie, drobne, szampańskie. Świetny przedstawiciel stylu, z fajnym "brettowym" aromatem, piękną pianą i perfekcyjnie ułożonym alkoholem. Przypomina Funky Tripla, choć do pełni szczęścia brak mi bardziej zdecydowanej dzikości w smaku. Idealne piwo na sylwestra zamiast półsłodkiego szampana!
