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.

beerfest5 (1065) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Brian. Clear yellow, almost lambic in nature when poured. Huge pillowy white head that stays for awhile. Aroma is yeasty bread with a floral hop note, taste is the same with a very nice finish.

Erzengel (1923) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Der Geruch ist süßlich-mild, im Aussehen erinnert es stark an ein helles Pils oder Kölsch. Das Bier ist vom Antrunk her sehr frisch, die 8,5% schmeckt man aber deutlich. Es hat einen sehr vollen Körper und ist schön süffig. Feinherb im Nachgeschmack gibt sich dieser mittellang und leicht süßlich. Sehr sprudelig br> --> ein sehr schönes empfehlenswertes Bier!
Test vom 20.2.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,8,13,10 - 10,50

@Weilands Market/Columbus. Clear golden amber with a generous white head, thin strands of lace. Aroma is pungent wheat and earth. Taste is toward lambic/geuze - wheat-malt combine to open things, adding sour grass and carbonation near the end of the palate. the malt lingers some in the finish, even though it is mostly about the sour mown grass. Different, palate cleansing, good with food (surprise! even with pizza!). Worth a try.

VinegarStroke (208) - Napa, California, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle (1 P 9.4FL OZ): clear, golden, moderate head that lasts. Lifted malt, fruit. Pale malts and almost a hint of wheat. Very fresh. Subtle hops. Layers of aroma. Dry, mid palate sweet. Moderate to low bitterness. Almost sour or acid. Very Bright, rich, long palate. Pale malt and lo who’s flavor. Wonderful freshness and depth of flavor. Stone fruit. Wine like. F:::ing good beer. Classic like the label says. Big but elegant. Beer does not need to be bombed with hops or dark malt to be good.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Draught at Abbots Ale House. Pours a clear pale golden yellow, nice white head, good lacing. Grassy nose. Grassy bitterness in the flavour. Lively carbonation, grassy aftertaste. Poor beer, I thought, lacked body, flavour and complexity. One dimensional and dull.

budedou (260) - Villemandeur, FRANCE - NOV 24, 2013
Très bonne bière avec un gout agréable (on ne sent pas trop le gout de l’ alcool malgré ses 8,5°) Un gout caractéristique, un peu acide

johnnnniee (2042) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle from Jaspers. Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a huge white head that persists forever leaving copious amounts of lace on the way down my glass. Pear and plum with pepper and sweet sugar make up the bulk of the aroma. A light mineral and yeastiness rounds out the nose. The flavor is sweeter than I thought with the honey like and bready pilsner malt shining through. Light pitted fruits a touch of warming and a hint of pepper round it all out. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice brew, if it weren’t a country tick I never would have picked it up, but I’m glad I did, I rather enjoyed it.

beautiful head and clarity, nice aromas - like a forest, a touch hot, very crisp mouth feel, dry, a hint of citrus, very well made

Flaska i gåva från frankrike. Halmgul vätska med vitt skum. Doft av jäst, hö och lite sirap. Ren neutral smak. Eldig fyllig munkänsla. Kort eftersmak.
