The 3MONTS beer : A wonderful return to nature, with its flavour of yesteryear, this is a beer that was drawn from the wooden metal-circled barrels to fill so many mugs in our Flanders bars! Its bitterness comes from our hop fields scattered throughout the region. Brewed by infusions, it is an old-fashioned rising beer made with strong and hearty Flemish hops. Fermented using top yeasts, like the barrel brewers of yore and clamped like bonderised barrels.

574deadzone (1208) - North Central, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2015
2011 vintage, listed at 8.3% ABV. Pours a remarkably clear if somewhat oily looking amber/copper with a dense, fluffy and rocky off-white head that hangs out a while, settling to a thick film and leaving some walls of foamy, coating lace. Nose involves some sweet, sugary doughy confections, almost some maple notes, subdued grassy and spicy hops, some peach and white grape, some honey. Pretty sweet, somewhat bitter. Medium toward full bodied, oily, soft, dusty, finishing toasty and toward dry with bitterness. Elegant, nuanced, and it held up pretty well. Cool.

Schönes goldgelb im Glas. Feinperliger weiße Schaumkrone, extrem stabil. Malz sowohl im Aroma als auch im Geschmack. Süßlich, leicht alkoholisch. Leider nicht besonders gut.

guzgorog (459) - FRANCE - APR 4, 2015
Blonde dorée limpide, forte mousse blanche crémeuse qui retombe lentement en laissant une grosse dentelle sur le verre, forte pétillance. Nez de cérales, fleurs, bonbon ,levures. Bouche fortement sur l’alcool et le sucre, ensuite un peu de céréales et un très léger fruité/noisette. La carbo est très bonne, la texture est légèrement crémeuse et liquoreuse. Finale légèrement amère. Pour moi, c’est LA bière de garde du Nord-Pas-De-Calais, même s’il y a en des meilleures, c’est la "classique" que tout le monde connait. De plus rapport qualité/prix excellent !

Robe blonde, limpide. Pas de mousse. Saveurs fruitées, herbales et boisées. Bon équilibre sucré/amer. Carbonatation fine. Moyennement longue en bouche.

Different than anything I’ve had. Has a hoppy sweetness with almost a white wine characteristic. Very light mouthfeel. It smells like a cross between a lager, a saison and a glass of white wine. Very refreshing with a nice bite at the end. I found this in a grocery store in France and thought for 3 Euros I might as well try it. Definitely good stuff.

ksiwzos (88) - GREECE - MAR 21, 2015
Crystal clear, yellow to golden with medium head that dissipates. Aroma is candy, light sweet malt, sugar, mainly light malts. Nice but a bit one dimensional. Taste is medium sweet, alcohol notes, light herbal and floral notes, some fruitiness(white grapes), some light citrucy notes too. Some bitterness at the finish. Medium body, light to medium carbonation. A bit one dimensional in general but decent brew.
