Notes/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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750 ml corked and caged bottle pours a cloudy bright orange-amber color with a huge wispy off white head that leaves a sticky lacing in my glass. Spicy citrus aromas, tart apple, pear, lemon and spicy flavors. Medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel, lingering sour finish. This is an amazing saison, I will be buying more of this one.

Thanks to hoppypocket for another great trade.

A: Pours a slightly murky reddish pumpkin colour with 5 fingers of big billowy head with plenty of lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: Yeasty bread, fresh cut grass, dry crisp pear, light funkiness with some sweet pale malts in the background.

T: Sweet honey malts upfront followed by fresh cut grass, dry pears, lemon zest and light notes of wet hay.

M: Light bodies and high carbonation. Dry finish.

O: A perfect summer patio beer. Crisp and clean with a pleasant drying finish.

Poured out of a 750mL bottle into a tulip.

A: Reddish golden body, with very active carbonation. Off white head, massive! Great retention and lots of lacing.

S: Bready and sweet. Spicy. Typical Belgian phenols- wet grass and straw,

T: Flavor follows the aroma. Caramel throughout, with a bread character. Comes in spicy, stays sweet to the end, with a slightly bitter finish.

M: Medium body with lots of carbonation. Slightly dry, more at the end, but not so much to unbalance the sweet flavors.

O: A well made, balanced saison. It is different than the typical saison, while not as light or dry, is still quite enjoyable.

The beer comes in a dark reddish copper with a light white head.

The aroma has caramel sweetness, Saison yeast and breadiness. A good amount of phenolic and spice.

The flavor follows as that caramel flavor drives throughout the beer. There's some spiciness along with the breadiness and yeast character. More towards a sweeter saison than a dry one. Reminded me of some Fantomes I've had.

A well made saison for those interested in something different from a light, refreshing dry versions of the beer.

Serving type: on-tap
