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: JAN 31, 2006 This is a nice, gold-colored brew with a large white head. It resembles a Belgian style, with the very high alcohol well-hidden in the nose and taste. The acidicity is medium to high and the bitterness is present but not lingering. The carbonation is high, the sweetness is light, and the breadiness is high. Overall, this is a brew characterized by its breadiness - it tastes like a liquid baguette. The huge problem, however, with this style is that there are no hops. This is almost unforgivable.

a sparkling body shrouds the excelent full flavor of this beer. I really love it and will drink it again. I love the funky cork stopper wire thingy- Unique. The beer was fantastic. I have a pallete easy to win and this ale won a special place in my heart- it is fantastic. Btw,. we are going to cut off your Johnson Lebowski-

Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Vegetably malty nose (very lagerish). Flavour is hoppy and malty with vegetable notes. Sweet alcohol and notes of vanilla and weak pear saves the beer. Gets very pleasant when it’s been poured for a while and gotten a few degrees warmer.

DrunkenCumquat (86) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2005
Bottled. Golden honey colour, white medium sized head. Fruity, malty flavour with a hint of honey and an alcohoic aftertaste. Fairly sweet, with a small but unpleasant metallic taste, reminiscent of Delerium Tremens. Overally quite nice, though.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2005
Fête Bières et Saveurs 2005. Robe blonde voilée surmontée d’une mousse blanche persistente. Arômes de sunstruck (moufette). Saveurs de métal, de blé, d’épices et de moufette. Corps bien présent. Mauvais entreposage j’imagine. À regoûter.

rederic (3222) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2005
Honey golden hue, with a frothy white head, with yeasty, pale malt, floral hops accent, straw aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with pale malt, fruity, malty note, hoppy, leading to a sweet dry alcoholic finish.

Belial (71) - BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2005
Pours a nice golden colour in the glass with a thick head lasting a fairly long time. Taste is strong, inviting, and you can taste aromas of bread and spices. The finish is long and spicy too. A beer I’d drink along eating cheese, or before lunch for example.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2005 Pours cleer yellow, with a white head. Nice lacing. Sweet and full/creamy. Aromas of malt, iron and spices. Slightly bitter and citirc finish again with a nice hint of spices.

Tmoney99 (12224) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Bomber corked bottle. Clear golden color with a large white head that diminished slowly. Full sweet hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body. Complex sweet flavor with a moderate bitter finish and small alcohol bite. I will try more in this style.

Eructoblaster (3418) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2005
Limpid golden body with average carbonation. Although its white bubbly head tends to fade quickly, a thin creamy lacing remains until we empty the glass. Nice malty aroma with sweet, honeyish and fruity notes. Alcohol is easily detectable, without being unpleasant. Taste is well balanced and surprisingly mild. It carries some hoppy, bready, and corny notes. Ends with a good warming finish. This is a good and pretty well balanced bière de garde, but I must admit that I was expecting something more complex.
