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.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2005 Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, tupalev - courtesy of blankboy. Poured clear bright light gold with a huge foamy white lasting head. Aroma a bit funky-herbal, sickly sweet, not really different from most pale lagers. Taste is very mild and grassy, lots of stale hops that build and conquer the honeyish malt - mouthfeel lively and thin, very herbal and bitter. I just don’t seem to like this style.

Bottle. Golden colour with a large white head. Aroma is a nice fruity, floral, spicey, malty mix. Flavours are sweet, lightly fruity and malty with a dry bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel, fair amount of carbonation. Some late warming alcohol. Very good.

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2005
Pilsner gold, with excitable carbonation and a voluminous head. The aroma has a slightly fruity, light malt character that wafts from the glass. A full, creamy palate leads to a smooth, ever-so-lightly hoppy finish. Delecious and fine. Recommended.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour with a huge white head. Yeasty, citrus aroma and a sweet fruity, light hoppy taste. Medium to full body and a sweet finish.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Ultra clear deeper golden color, firm white head. Certainly fruity, apple, citrus, some yeast, the slightest of funk. Pretty sweet as well. Medium to full bodied with a touch of alcohol coming through. A touch sticky. This kind of falls between a Belgian golden and a truer to style biere de garde. Not bad.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2005
My first bière de garde. Ain’t bad at all. Big white head, Malt & hops, acidic(citrus). You can really feel the alcohol. Not the best stuff but still good!

750ml bottle. Lot of pressure in the bottle. Smells like blonde beer and alchool. It’s missing a little something to make it extra. The beer is good but it’s without that little...
