Blaugies La Moneuse

The Brasserie de Blaugies is in Dour, Belgium. This is a tiny micro brewery working out of the garage of a pair of Belgian school teachers. According to the bottle, this beer is named for A.J. Moneuse (b. 1768), a famous local bandit and gang leader and ancestor of the brewers' family. It is 8.0% ABV.

The beer pours a hazy copper and orange in color. There is a massive, bubbling, foamy head that is just off-white in color. The aroma is tangy, yeasty, floral, straw, bread dough, earth, a bit of damp rotting log. The taste is semi-sweet, caramel, bread, flowers, tangy. The finish is quite dry and a bit bitter. It is well and finely carbonated. This is a very nice saison.
