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.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy, pale gold, with a small white head. Nice lace. Aroma of yeast, malt and hops. Ditto for flavor. Sweetish. A bit on the thin side, frankly. Not what I had expected.

sammy3D (141) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Pours a nice golden color with a fair head and good fizz. Aroma is licorice sweet with bready malts. Excellent flavor with a licorice sweet tone similar to the aroma but with a buttery malt body like home baked loaf finishing with a smooth, dry bitter character that balances the whole brew quite well. Pleasant and fizzy in the mouth and quite the refresher. The 8.5% ABV makes its presence known on the tongue but is well blended. This is a great beer.

Kosovar (48) - repentigny, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2006
Il faut aborder cette broue comme l’on ferait avec une femme : au premier regard elle intrigue, puis on ose la prendre, l’examiner, puis on finit par la gouter avec force au début mais la finesse prend le dessus. Une finesse que seul la flandre parvient à atteindre. Sa beauté n’a d’égale que son charisme en bouche et sa broue inspire le respect du plus inique critique.

Lubiere (11394) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2006
Golden coloured with a thick white head. Skunky aroma with strong oxidized honey notes. Crisp malts, sweetish notes with light hops in finish. Overhyped Kronenbourg type lager, which was oxidized. August 2005. Bought at Joanette.

TBone (14618) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2006
Bottled, 75cl (BB 05/2006)
Pale yellow, small white head. Bready, malty and sugary aroma. Alcoholic and metallic flavor over the malty base. Quite sugary palate. Rude and simple.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev -- courtesy of me. Pours a clear light gold with a large lasting fizzy white head. Dissapointing sugary aroma of yeast and light skunky hops. Slightly funky flavour of yeast, malt, alcohol and hops. Light bodied. I think this is a case of the style not being for me, I did not much care for this at all.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of blankboy. Clear, bright gold with a moderate head. Aroma has a slightly skunky herbal hop aroma with some sweet sugary notes in the background. Flavour is like a slightly sweeter & stronger Czech pils. Not bad.
