Corked and caged 750 mL bottle; 2.004 imprint on the cork.
Moinette Brune pours a hazy amber-brown color into my chalice. After popping the cork, the bottle foamed over. A monster head initially appears after the pour, but it collapses in on itself within a few minutes and leaves no lacing. Lots of carbonation. The aroma is predominantly sweet, with caramel and plum elements. The alcohol content makes an appearance here with an astringent smell.
The taste follows up on the aroma by once again being mostly sweet and with caramel and plum flavors. There's a hint of chocolate and butterscotch here as well. The Belgian funk is present here, but not in a distinct sense beyond an undifferentiated tartness; any bitterness derived from the hops blends in here. The alcohol is much more hidden here than it was in the aroma. The mouthfeel is surprisingly light, to the point of being a bit thin. Finishes clean, with only a little alcoholic "heating" in the throat; leaves a caramel aftertaste.
Overall, a reasonably drinkable beer, but with nothing noteworthy in its composition to recommend it, except for those who are new to Belgians. Given the time I've been sitting on this beer (≈1 year), I wonder if I waited too long to open it up.
