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.

Bottle 750ml. Those have always a great presentation :) Pours with light amber, yellowish colour. White, not big but persistent, small bubbled head. Nose: descendants of saaz type hops, bready, pilsener malt scent. Mouthfeel: average carbonation. Taste: bready, malty, medium sweet, really slightly acidic. Obvious presence of high level of alcohol, but mildly covered by sweetnes and bitternes in aftertaste. Beware! It’s not a session beer, almost 9% abv!! :) Good for fiestas, goes excellently with proper meat portions :) Really good example of regional bière de flamande/garde. Brasserie de Saint Sylvestre, merci beaucoup!!

Bottle from Monoprix, Nice. Pale golden with a light lager style - it certainly doesn’t feel its strength. Has a fair carbonation and a frothy head. It’s certainly a notch above lager with a slight smoothness and a nice malt-hop taste, but it’s not that far removed.

gegwilson (1690) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from a French supermarket. Pours golden with a frothy white head. Nice, bitter and refreshing. Spicy hop notes over quite a syrupy base. A bit of aniseed in the finish. One of the better mainstream biere de gardes

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Cool bomber... Good label. Weird clasp on the cork that I haven’t seen before. Murky brownish brew, with tinges of green. Vanilla notes over malt and yeast give it a cakey aroma. Pleasantly effervescent and bitter, not very esteric, dry toffee. Medium body. Finishes out with a vanilla ladyfinger effect. Beer Stop, Tallahassee.

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle 0.75l. Pours hazy light yellow with minimal head. Aroma is malty, grassy, citrus, slightly spicy. Taste is light bitter, light to medium sweet, yeasty, some citrus, spicy, bit floral. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and sweet, lively carbonation, bit watery, alcohol is well hidden. Ok.

MarkoNm (1033) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 17, 2014
Pours a golden color, toppd with a decent frothy white head. The aroma is mild, some malts and some fruity addition. The taste is bittery, but not unpleasantly. Some fruitiness towards the finish. One of the better biere de garde I had.

ha1ag (748) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2014
Bottled, Tnx Jenő! Clear dark golden color with a thick creamy white head. Vivid carbonation. Soft hoppy nose. Aroma is soft buttery malts with sweet tones. Flavour is slightly sweeter with mild but lasting dry hoppy bitterness in the finish. Great balance, excellent beer!

Geschonken uit een 75cl fles, een lichtgeel helder bier met een mooie witte schuimkraag. Hoppig aroma, licht bittere hop smaak, lichte tinten van citrus, mout, honing, kruidig, heerlijk drinkbaar wanneer hij koud geserveerd wordt in een warm klimaat. Een van de betere Franse bieren die ik tot nu toe gedronken heb.

Maakun (1081) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
75cl bottle. Golden with very big fluffy white head. Sweet malts, honey, some dough, fresh tropical fruits and light herbal notes. Quite sweet. Medium bodied and quite big alcohol presence. Not really that good, boring aroma and too much alcohol.
