Small stubby bottle that alot of the belgians come in. The color was a shiny yellow. A bottle swirl clouded things up a bit. Dense small bubbled head. Foamy. Smells of grapefruit, citrus smells, and earthy belgian yeast. Maybe some soap, or is that my glass ?
Taste was tart citrus, grapefruit, fresh hop bitterness. Sweet underlying malty goodness with the ctirus shock. Maybe some honey and fresh mown hay. A pretty good, tangy, citrus strong ale. Light to medium bodied, highly charged, but with a enough snap to be refreshing.

Shared a 750 mil. bottle with Clvand0 and Ding at Pazzos. The beer is distictly an artisanal Belgian. Lots of fruity aromas (pineapple, grapefruit, bruised oranges and apples). Medium tartness and spiciness from the yeast and fermentation. Perhaps more agressively hopped than usually expected from the Belgians. Looks murky yellow / orange with very nice retention, lacing, and carbonation. Tastes as fruity, spicy, and hoppy as exhibited in the aroma. Though the beer boasts of having licorice added, I don't really detect it in the flavor. However, there is a bold sweetness (pineapple) that boarders on saltiness. Medium textured and prickly (co2). Finishes with a crisp dryness and a lingering hop flavor. A slight soapy flavor late is the only real flaw.

Great drinkable beer. Very soft, but nice alcohol keeps the tension. Is there Corsendonk yeast in it?

L: good top, could last a little longer? Golden colour.
S: grandma's apple pie! Vanilla, bread, cinnamon, raisins, butter: exactly the same recipe plus some malts.
T: soft, almost no bitterness, in line with the smell.
M: if it would have a little bitterness and extra body it would be a 5. Lovely though.
O: I love this beer.

Served at between fridge and cellar temperature in a Unibroue tasting tulip. Best by 08/08/09, cellared for 6 months.

Appearance- Fiery gold, this beer pours beautifully and full, with a traditionally thick four finger crown that pops away for several minutes. As the head diminishes, thin webs of lacing with outlines of each individual bubble are left behind.

Smell- Subtle, fruity notes of orange zest are clearly present. Then comes coriander and licorice, perfectly balancing and rounding out the spicy, earthy hop aromas.

Taste- Solid... a terrific palate of fruity citrus peel, grassy/herbal hops, and a drying finish. As good warmed up as it was ten degrees cooler... this has the right balance, all ingredients come together beautifully.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability- A home run in mouthfeel... slick, smooth, foamy almost to perfection. It does thin out a bit after being in the glass for several minutes, but otherwise it's a pleasure. I'd definitely recommend this and would personally go out and but this again.

Pours out a golden/yellow hue with a small, soft head, with low carbonation. There is little lacing.

Soft nose, with some orange peel, slight spices, and citrus. Hints of honey, sweet orange and grapefruit.

Full of citrus sweetness, with orange, grapefruit, tangerine and some mild honey, caramel and marmalade flavours. Slight clove spiciness to the finish.

Quite a different, and interesting brew. Mild mouthfeel and low carbonation. Superb price for a delicious tasting beer.

Coming in a short 330ml brown bottle, BB 19/08/09, served chilled in Hapkin's tulip-shaped bowl sniffer.

A: pours a dark golden hue with abundant but not fierce carbonation, topped with a well-lasting white spongey head.
S: lovely orangey+lemony fruitiness and dustiness come on top of grassy hops and a thick bedrock of sugary pale malts. Give it a good swirl: the exotic fruit esters, rather harmonious, come aboard and hint at a slightly stinky edge of dried citrus peels and a faint touch of coriander-seed-ish spiciness behind the façade. Overall, all pleasant elements are firmly in place and in harmony, not overly assertive but ve...ry pleasant.
T: a delicious and softly-carbonated foretaste consisting of sweet green-tea and a yeastiness like "Chinese green-bean paste" is backed by a smoothly citric hoppy flavour and a light flow of spicy yeastiness, leaving the maltiness and slightly rock-sugar-like sweetness to balance with slowly expanding mild bitterness. The finish is clean, but the quietly chewy palate thanks to the bitter hops and yeasts seems to linger somewhat.
M&D: mildly effervescent with microscopic fizz rubbing the taste-buds ever so softly, clean on the palate, light-bodied for a 7.3%abv. ale but never going thin, this Golden Ale commands respect for its integrity of taste and structure. A very well-made beer that is almost quaffable!

Nose light but with little fruity side, including apple. Round and soft palate with some bitterness, the taste is, in turn, neither bitter nor sweet, subtle and lightweight (a little too much so) despite the presence of an attack flowery hops on the finish. Good beer, very pleasant tasting, but still A bit too light to claim the top podium Strong Pale Ale. Very digestible.

BB 26/02/10
a) Cloudy honey/yellow, big white head.
s) Initially a burnt match note from the bottle, that dissipated. Tinned peaches & Farex, stale hop. Warms to spiced ham.
f) Musk candy, perfume, spice, biscuit, well constructed.
m) Tingly, tangy feel, smooth & balanced
d) A very nice ale, and easily drinkable - the whole 750mL.

Purchased as part of an order from the Adelaide Bier Shop.

Pours a hazed and rather pleasantly bright golden colour, with an initially frothy head of white, that collapses to a manageable size. Some lacing, but not a lot. Looks decent enough.

Nose is quite smooth, but rustic with those classic slightly raw Belgian yeast characters. Some sweet esters of crushed vegetation and a roundness. Rather pleasant. Maybe not as complex as some Belgian examples, but good nonetheless.

Taste is similar. Very smooth, with a slight lingering acidity on the back to freshen the palate. Light peppery, spicy phenols through the centre, and an overarching character of green vegetation, which doesn't quite tie everything together. It's very pleasant nonetheless. Again, not as rich and complex as some examples, but certainly still good.

Alcohol is well hidden, and overall, it's pretty smooth and pleasant.

I bought a 750ml bottle of this at the Bier Tempel in Brussels (5.60 Euros) and quaffed it late one night in my room while in London...
Moine is a medium golden colored bier, with a steady stream of bubbles rising upwards. Fairly clear, it has a foamy, rocky white head, though it fades rapidly to a thin layer leaving better than average lace. Aroma has bready malt and light sweetness, plus mango notes and hints of spice. It has medium body and passes well over the tongue despite the rather abundant carbonation. A taste (or 6...) reveals a light crackery malt backbone providing subtle sweetness. Further investigation (and inbibing) discovers passion fruit-like notes and a touch of spice (coriander, maybe?). Finish is quick and drying. A decent Tripel...could be more complex, but still good.
Prosit!!

From bottle, pours a hazey almost clear golden colour with a big white head that disapates to a small layer. Aroma bready, grape, apples, bubble gum. Taste lemon, peach, yeast, spices. Not to bad.
