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.

Whiff of yeast. Golden pils like colour. Tiny bubbles foam head. Tastes this typical metallic trait of cheap pils. Carbonation is shy but abundant. After a few sips its alcohol content is dominant. Mouthfeel is ok. Could quench thirst ok but not worth more.

Bottle in a hotel while in France with Susan. Pours a pale gold with a white creamy head. Aroma is earthy, yeasty, malty with some grassy / flowery hops, light zesty citrus. Finishes dry. Really nice beer. Picked up at a random grocery store.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 My everyday beer, perfect for warming up before a cold evening or a party! Good French bière de garde although the alcohol taste is a little bit too strong.

McWorta (839) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 21, 2015
Dark yellow colour with a pillowy light creamy white head. Aromas of grass, straw, barnyard and dome light citrus notes develop underpinned by some maltiness. Light effervescent with a slick texture and medium body. A good balance between sweet and hoppy bitterness. Medium finish and an excellent companion for dome creamy cheeses.

Une bière de type belge basique, au gout d’alcol trop marqué à mon gout. Un petit gout de noisette mais pas de quoi se damner. A boire quand il n’y a vraiment rien d’autre.

Bonne bière basique, pas complexe. Peu d’arôme, peu d’amertume. Mais belle présence en bouche toutefois, dans le style abbaye. Robe claire, mousse idéale.

Probablement la meilleur bière de garde (ou d’abbaye) Française disponible en grande surface, j’le trouve meilleur que la Jenlain, la Goudale, la Ch’ti et le packaginig fait très authentique/artisanal. Cependant en terme d’arome, elle est pas au niveau d’une Duvel ou une Triple Karmeliet mais elle est aussi nettement moins cher (2.20 euros les 75cl). Excellent, i recommand it. PS: Par contre l’embout en métal qui bloque le bouchon de liège, c’est plus casse-pieds qu’autre chose.

tom10101 (3670) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle (750 ml). Split 3-ways with family. Extra from Whatup14, thanks David!

Appearance: Clear golden with a small off-white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Quite yeasty with some fruits, perfume notes, grains, a touch of alcohol and light herbal presence.

Taste: Yeasty again, some fruits action, good malt backbone, hints of alcohol and herbal notes. Light bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Moderately dry finish.

Overall: Fairly easy to drink for the abv. Not the tastiest beer, but it’s enjoyable nonetheless.
