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.

Cornfield (5506) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2005
This pours quite a pale yellow for a biere de garde. The carbonation is slow & lazy and the thick, tightly beaded head lingers only briefly. The aroma is grassy and yeasty with a light fruitiness - apples and grapes - and a hit of alcohol. Quite vinuous in the mouth, it has a ligfht, sweet malt flavor with yeast and a spritz of lemon. The finish is long, warm, and dry. Nice drink.

harrisoni (13884) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 Bottle from france. Creamy tight head and golden colour. Not fantastic nose or amazing flavours, but the whole is greater than the sum of the parts to deliver a wonderful refreshing strong golden ale. It is one of my favourite fridge beers

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 9, 2005
(on bottle) Light sent of grass and hay; the real biere de garde-aroma. Perlyfresh, a bit stngdy, with a good alcoholfeel the palate. A tad bitter/metallic finish.

Sample courtesy of Pailhead. Pours copper with fluffy white head. Aroma is very yeasty with hints of fruit. Flavor just about the same, but very astringent. Highly carbonated. Agree with Pailhead in, not a fan of the style so far.

Pailhead (4900) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Bottle: Fruity and vinuous with some watered down kriekbier aromas in there too. Pours a hazy orange with a white head that has good retention. Light up front with light fruit, yeast, and a little acidity in the finish. Not bad, but I’m just not that big a fan of the style.

Bottle. Hazy amber color with lots of floaties. Decent white head with little lacing. Aroma is fruity and yeasty. Well carbonated. Medium bodied. Spicey, fruity and yeast flavors. Solid.

highlandlad (1417) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2005
Smooth, dangerously drinkable biere de garde. Deep gold colour, huge lacing head. A "big" nose, full of apples, grassy hops and yeast. Full-bodied, sweet on entry, with a long, wonderfully dry finish. Syrupy mouthfeel. Almost wine-like in intensity, with some spice, hoppy grapefruit, and plenty of warming alcohol. (Bottle)

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2005
Golden color, with a large white, frothy head and lacing to match. Malty sweet aroma, with some doughy yeast, spicy, and grassy hop, very faint pear, and apple. Malty, grainy, fruity and lightly sweet with some herbal hopness. Full bodied with a very effervescent palate and winey mouthfeel. Very nice beer.
