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.

Kathy's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Cloudy gold color with lots of sediment. Huge, loose head. Gentle aroma that’s slightly herbal and slightly sugary. Flavor is balanced with plenty of Belgian yeastiness and a mildly bitter aftertaste. The beginning of the beer, the first flavor on the tongue, is a tad watery, but it pretty quickly fills out. It’s just a slightly odd sensation. A nice, pleasant, accessible beer.

Robe orange claire, limpide. Mousse abondante (petit gush) blanche, aérée, légère, rocailleuse, tenue moyenne. Nez épicé (poivré), levuré, doux fruité et suret. Bouche douce légèrement fruitée (pêche, prune), caramel. Petit côté sûr fruité. Malté présent, pointe levurée épicée poivrée. Houblon léger, herbacé. Amertume très légère en fin de bouche. Masque très bien ses 8%. Corpulence moyenne, texture légèrement collante, carbonatation moyenne. Bière douce, maltée, légèrement fruitée et épicée. Trop forte pour une saison, pas assez "buvable" pour ce style à mon sens.

Poncjusz (223) - POLAND - JUL 7, 2017
Zloty, lekko wchodzacy w pomarańcz, zamglony, piana sredniej struktury ale wysoka i dość trwała. Aromat klasyczny, czuc kwas, szampan, przyprawy, delikatne dzikość i estry. W smaku petarda! Aksamitna mieszanka słodu drożdży, przypraw, owoców. W tle ciasto drożdżowe kompot z suszu. Pijalnosc wysoka jak nie ekstremalna. Najlepszy klasyk jaki pilem, mimo braku wyraznych przypraw jakie lubie w saisonie.

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

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

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

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.

Fules (1262) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 12, 2017
Nagy, örökké tartó hab, nagyon szép borostyán szín. Enyhe, fűszeres illat. Fűszeres, korianderes, malátás ízvilág, tökéletes arányokban és nagyszerű egyensúllyal. Közepesen testes, erős de selymes szénsavassággal és enyhe keserűvel. Nagyon finom saison.

Gylden brun klar med høyt beige skum. Lukte halm, nesten fjøs og gjær. Middels fylde. Godt med bitterhet mor besk smak i denne. Grape og sitrus, gjær, halm og noe syrlig eple. Lang tørr avslutning.

Bottle, 75cL. @Naintré, France shared with my dad. An orange light opaque beer ; bubbly ; big white foamy head -omelet-like- with a good retention. Herb, flower, citrus, light roast, light biscuit. Light to medium sweet, round, medium dry lasting bitter refreshing. Light to medium body, silky texture, good carbonation, floral citrusy dry bitter finish. Overall, awesome !!

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.
