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.

La biere est rousse, avec un beau collet de mousse, et aucune effervescence. Au nez c’est citronné, avec une grosse arôme de levure saison. En bouche, l’absence totale d’effervescence me frappe. Le goût est assez citronné et sucré, comme une vraie saison à la belge. Le goût apres quelques gorgées devient assez caramélisé et alcoolisé, indiquant une belle balance levure - malt.

Bottle. Etre Gourmet. Hazy, dark gold. Loads of lively, fast rising bubbles. Huge, frothy, lasting, off white head. Nose has granary bread. Soapy yeast. Baked apple. Taste is sweet, and bready, and yeasty. Soapy mouthfeel. Foamy carbonation. Some fruity esters on the finish. Dryish close. Ok.

750 ml caged and corked bottle, the cap on the caging is smudged but it looks like the printing on it says BL10115. I guess it’s a 2015 bottle? Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with a couple inch off-white head. Head retention is really good, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like clove, apple, earthiness, wheat/grainy malt and peppery spice. It tastes like yeasty earthiness, wheat/grainy malt, hay, peppery spice, apple, clove, and a bit of apricot. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s somewhat dry with a lot of carbonation. But the carbonation is soft, and I thought it was easy enough to drink. I liked this brew a lot, it’s a very enjoyable saison. Definitely recommend this to anyone who likes saisons.

75cl bottle. Hazy golden amber beer, big white head. Nose is fruity, malts, yeast notes. Flavor is caramel notes, malt, fruit and yeast. Yeasty finish, some mild funk. Not exactly impressive, but not bad either.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a huge rocky head that dissipates little by little. Big farmyard nose with apple and pear, wet hay, cobwebs. Very earthy with some manure notes as well. Full-on farmyard. Highly carbonated and a little fruity sweetness, but as the finish starts the bitterness kicks in. Dry finish with peppery hops. A lot going on and great for the price. Hides the alcohol very well.

ksiwzos (140) - 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 it’s alcohol content.

@ Basunen 16-7-30: Lätt syrlig doft, smakmessig inte stor men små toner av frukt och hö. Maltig eftersmak.
