DavefromChicago (201) - Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2003
Earthy brew with lotsa musty, yeasty character. Thin bodied, smoothly hopped, with a good head - ultimately without much to grab onto other than its farmhouse ale aromas and a nice sour finish. Could use some fruitiness or sweetness for a fuller mouthfeel, especially for a Winter brew. Compare (unfavorably) to Fantome Black Ghost - a Flanders red.

DuffMan (10664) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2017
On tap @ Avenue Pub in NOLA. Slightly hazy deep orange, brief white head. Spicy plum, pale malt backbone despite the appearance, dry spicy finish. Unexpectedly elegant.

Grzesiek79 (4433) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 13, 2017
Piekna piana, pechezykowa. Kolor bursztynowo czerwonawy. Metniste i na koniec blotniste. Aromat wina, sliwek nieco octu. W smaku winne, drozdzowo owocowe, drylowane wisnie i sliwki. Kwaskowe nieco. Ale przyprawowosc lekko wyczuwalna, zwlaszcza kolorowy pieprz

MelvinKalksma (1717) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Saison yeast, fruit, apple, bread and funk.

Appearance:
Opaque amber/orange beer with a medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, Saison yeast, fruit and apple; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread and funk.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Really balanced thanks to that Saison yeast. Fruit and bread are the most dominant flavours, with some apple as well. Perfect appearance and a great palate.

Kavu (5119) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2017
0,75l bottle as La Moneuse Special Winter Ale, shared with wiosna @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear deep golden with a medium white head. Aroma is slightly tarty malts with some apples. Flavor is tarty malts, apples, a hint of vinegar and some hops. Good.

Veey good. Slighty tart and sour in finish. Hints of green apple and raisin. Enjoyed it very much

3.8
Ysok02 (1826) - Mons, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2017
Robe ambrée, mousse crémeuse, persistante. Nez sur le malt, les épices douces, une pointe de levure, touche de caramel et de noisette, assez complexe. Bouche à l’attaque fraîche et acidulée, bulle fine et belle tension, mais finale un peu abrupte et manquant d’ampleur.

3.3
Bawelt (874) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 16, 2017
Légère (pour du 8). Nez avec pas mal de levures. Un fond pomme voir epoire. Bouche bien équilibrée. Acidité très modérée.

3.3
rumore (757) - Rimini, ITALY - JAN 13, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours amber with nice reflections, and limited foam (white and fine). Aroma has fruits under spirits, dried figs, white-pulp fruits. Body is medium-dense. Taste is sweetish, with an apricot feeling and more sugary sweetness. Finish is fortunately not too long.

3.3
mikeyo1 (871) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2017
bottle @ home, aged a year. Hazy amber color. Aroma of fruits, caramel, malt, yeast, spices. Medium body, dry taste with high carbonation. Similar taste, with a dry finish and some alcohol warmth.

3.6
Lilja (3489) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2016
Flaska från SB 2015. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, torkad frukt, brunt socker, belgiskt jäst och kryddor. Fruktig, rund och len, fin sötma, bra balans, lagom beska.
