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.

MelvinKalksma (1472) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2017

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

Appearance:
Turbid amber/orange beer with a large off-white head.

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

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Lovely balanced Saison with no real flaws, besides the aroma that could have been stronger. Have to say that I always think it is really hard to write an overall for this style.

750ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy apricot golden, rich and dense white head, good lacing. Soapy, peppery, yeasty aroma, bubblegum, hay and barnyard. Medium bodied, smooth and soft mouthfeel. Mild funky barnyard taste with peppery yeast, hay, bubblegum, orange zest and soap. Pleasant yeasty and floral finish.

Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - MAR 24, 2017
Aspetto: ambrata abbastanza torbida, schiuma bianca e perfetta. Aroma: decisamente speziato e anche un tocco di floreale. Gusto: all'attacco è molto speziata, maltata, un po' fruttata, per poi evolvere in un avvolgente scorza di pane. L'amaro emerge timido nella parte finale del sorso, ad equilibrare il tutto. Carbonizzazione giusta per la birra, corpo medio. Veramente una buona saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
