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.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2006
Pale golden colour with a thin foamy white head. Malty aroma with a brewmash note, a vague fruityness and hints of flowers. Malty, grainy sweet flavor with yeasty notes and a spicy finish.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Poured a light golden color with a thick head that disipated quickly. It has a floral aroma with a hint of spice. The beer has medium carbonation with a nice hoppy flavor and medium bitter finish.

Bottle shared by <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank> mds, thanks Mike. Golden colour, lasting off-white head, very small patchy lace. The aroma was bready, light spice, some lemons, light honey and grass. The flavour was doughy and bready, some yeast and spice, grassy, some floral hops. Bitter dry mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes light, buttery, lingering. Not to bad.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2006
Aroma: Pilsnermalt, fresh hops, sourish as of white currants & lemon balm, candisugar, soft floweryness, rich, aromatic. Appearance: Yellow like cider (a bit orange), greentinged, white foam for head, looks really fresh. Flavor: very soft, soapy bitterness, rich (some sweetness), slightly acrid, (malic acid?), bitter aftertaste of alcohol and flowers. Palate: fluffy, pretty sticky/doughy (sort of fat...), pretty dull, refreshing and musty. It feels heavy. Like eating cookies. Even though I’m not superfond of it I suspect this is the kind of beer you’re gonna get abstinence from.

eaglefan538 (3009) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Poured a crystal godlen color with a very respectable head that laced quite well. The aroma was sweet, somewhat of honey and grass. The flavor really brought out both and was somewhat disappointing, much like a strong european pilsner type lager, transitioning to a bit of a hefeweizen upon warming (light bananas). Mouthfeel was carbonated. A decent beer, nothing to write home about.

Dedollewaitor (15230) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2006
Hazy yellow with fine lasting white head. (Looks very much like a pilsner) Aroma and taste is spicy and yeasty. Fine and pleasant bitterness from the hops. Medium carbonation. Long and bitter finish! Great

rlgk (16554) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2006
Golden with a quite small white head. Malty aroma, a bit sugary. Fruity and hoppy flavor that felt quite ok. Alcohol is well hidden.
