An organic ale that is called Forêt in the U.S.A.

The Moinette Biologique is a top fermentation blond beer with refermentation in the bottle. It was created in 1990 and is, together with the “Saison Dupont Biologique”, one of the first two organic beers. The Moinette Biologique has the combination of malt aromas, fruitiness and fine hops. It is very thirst-quenchening and strikes a fine balance between mellowness, fruitiness and bitterness. The long refermentation in the bottle ends up in a very complex beer. The production is being controlled by Certisys and has the label Biogarantie®.

Ingredients: water, organic barley malt, organic cane sugar, organic hops, yeast.
