COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Mr_Pink_152 (3636) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2016
large bottle from Real Ale Store, Newark. Rich golden colour with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is grassy, bread spice and yeast. Taste is smooth light honey sweet and dry bitter on the finish. So refreshing, nice beer.

LeWorm (61) - FRANCE - APR 6, 2016
Une belle mousse, un nez un peu «forestier», tourbé. Le goût de céréales reste bien au palais. L’alcool n’est pas trop présent en bouche.

Barwa herbaty z cytryną. Piana biała, sztywna gęsta i wysoka. W aromacie nuty cytrusowe, przyprawowe ale też wyraźnie alkoholowe. W smaku dominują nuty alkoholowe, poza tym na finiszu wytrawne, nuty słodwe, chmielowe i ziołowe.

AssKicker (208) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAR 5, 2016
Blonde claire à la mousse abondante et assez onctueuse. Amertume assez prononcée et goût largement porté sur les céréales. L’alcool se fait assez discret malgré ses plus de 8%. Sympa.

Zilb (152) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - FEB 7, 2016
Arôme sur la banane bam’s. Beau col de mousse. Carbonée mais pas trop. Amertume bien équilibrée et alcool qui se ressent en final.

Bygers (1144) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle 0,75l. Pours a pale light straw colour with a fine head leaving some lace. Light and complex aroma with bread and honey, vanilla and even a little licorice. A satisfying bitterness and the same malt dominant taste as hinted by the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kolor jest z?ocisty, klarowny. G?sta, gruba, bia?a piana. Aromat: lekki chmielowy, z nutami kwiatowymi i czerwonymi owocami w tle, jest minimalnie miodowy i s?odki. Smak jest nieco wytrawny, nuty kwiatowe, owocowe. Tym razem bia?e winogrona, które nadaj? lekko winnego charakteru. Goryczka lekko ziemista i alkoholowa. Wysycenie wysokie, bardzo pasuje. Alkohol delikatnie rozgrzewa.

Druss (16) - Goulburn, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2016
Ya know...I LOVE this beer. Great aroma, pours a light gold in glass with a decent head. It’s a bittersweet beer with bananas and a bit of caramel with a touch of sourness that compliments the sweetness well. A hint of pear and the taste lingers like a fart in an elevator...except it’s very pleasant. 3 Monts, it should be "French for beer!"

Bottle at private tasting with Justin J (7/1/15). Great European example of what a Biere de Garde should be. Lots of bready and sweet malt character, but tempered by a lively carbonation. Earthy, sweet, effervescent -- really good.

PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2015
APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: very sweet, pilsener like, but lacks a lot. TASTE: mostly sweet, some malts as well... Nothing special.
