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.

My first biere de garde. Pours light yellow with medium head. Aromas of grass, barnyard, citrus, cloves. Taste is sweet and fruity, much like a triple, some spice, green grapes, apple, lemon. Solid body, a bit boozy. Really enjoying the white wine notes. Nice.

Pours crystal clear, very pale yellow. Quite hoppy aroma, spicy. Medium body and bitterness. Aroma promises more than the taste delivers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - A cloudy golden color with a thick white head when poured. A malty sweet smell on the nose and a malty flavor on the pallet.

750ml bottle - What a really nice beer, and while beers from France are (for me) typically horrible, this brewery continues to impress me. The beer pours out a beautiful looking lemony yellow body with a huge, fluffy, airy white head. Aroma has many layers of complexity. Lemon cake batter, shortbread cookies, light Champagne/white wine, and light spice. Flavor is also just as incredible with clean flavors of white grapes, sweet grain, apples, vanilla and light lemons. Really complex and each sip brings a different mix of flavors. Some sips are really sweet, some are fruit forward, some have a lemon twist. Love, love this beer but the price is a bit of a put off. Maybe the best BDG I’ve had? Not sure but damned close.

Weak, almost Saison style yeast aroma, good bitter finish, but also quite sweet with its 8.5 abv alcohol hit. As some else said, quite similar to Duval.
