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.

ALLOVATE (2828) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2006
Glad to finally rate this one after downing many-a-bottle and having the repeated pleasure of re-trying it at every beer tasting event in Perth. Poured into a chalice, chilled from the fridge with my wife dishing out her opinion on it in the background. Sparkling, pale straw gold body filled with a huge flurry of carbonation that raised an immense, pillowy white head beyond the brim. Head retained well to leave a thick layer of frost coating over the glass. Musty, barnyard grains, honey and very spicy herbs, yeast and alcohol tickle the nose. Sweet lemon-concentrate and light yeasty ’horse-blanket’ notes come in as it warms, but are still mere undertones to the strong peppery spices. Quite gentle on the tongue, well conditioned as the mild carbonation offered only a little bounce to the generally smooth body of this beer. Lemon and honey, gritty palest grains and an apparent taste of shellfish like fresh cut oysters in brine water make up the unusual flavour profile that fills every inch of the mouth. Juicy notes of grapefruit and chardonnay wine balance the sweeter flavours with all the spices coming on with vigour in the back end. Finish is rather fresh, juicy and fruity with a little warmth brought on by the alcohol. It was honestly more refreshing warm than chilled, with the unusual flavour of shellfish adding to it a depth of flavour I haven’t come across yet. Unusual, to say the least, but it’s certainly addictive. A good summery quaffer. (75cL, 22/12/07, Morley Liquor Merchants)

CapFlu (5074) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2006
(Bottle) Purchased at Marche Jovi in Gatineau, Quebec, for $5.79. Pours a medium, white, frothy head with a very clear light ginger ale coloured body. The nose is disturbingly lemony with a buttery malt and adjuct yeastiness. The flavour is incredibly poor ginger ale and lemon concoction. Yuck... brush my tongue...

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.
