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.

ksiwzos (137) - GREECE - AUG 2, 2016
Funky aroma, sweet wortish, light caramel sweetness with some fruity notes and some floral overtones. Light amber with white head that lasts and laces. Taste is spicy phenols with candy sugar sweetness, some very light tartness and very smooth bitterness. There is an obvious amount of funkiness all over but not very intense. Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, too drinkable for its alcohol content.

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
May 16. A 0.75 l bottle that poured hazy orange body with a big head. Nice fruity aroma, mostly peach and lemon with a touch of yeast. Flavor was lightly sweet, too, fruity, yeasty (although not as much as it could be judged by thick bottle sediment) and only lightly peppery hoppy. Highly carbonated with occasional metallic and muddy yeast notes. Thin to medium bodied with moderately long finish. Alcohol was not felt at all, making it really easy going and dangerously refreshing even on a hot summer day like this. One of the tastier Saisons around, for sure, almost like an average "Belgian ale" proper to be ironic. Or just objective? :) Anyway, it was fine.

mgajdaczewa (1921) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 16, 2016
W aromacie jako pierwszy uderza... skunks zielonobutelkowy! No przykro mi bardzo. Poza tym przyprawy, pachnie nieco korzennie. W smaku mamy już rasowego saisona z dobrą owocowością, przyprawami i niską goryczką. Nieco skopany.
