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.

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.

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.

sunevdj (3500) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2005
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 (12050) - 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 (3397) - 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.

bkurtz (1007) - PERU - AUG 14, 2005
A full bodied beer with a big head and a honey sweetness, yet a slightly bitter finish. Soft on the palate with a flowery hops. Good brew.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2005
Couleur dorée foncée, apparence claire comme de l’eau, pleinement filtrée. Faible mousse blanche diminuant rapidement, un très faible dégagement gazeux observable au travers du liquide. Arômes initiaux de sucre allant entre le sucre candi et les sucre inverti, rappelant ainsi le miel. Arômes secondaires introduisant un houblon légèrement fruité, style Hallertauer, et également un faible mais grandissant profil de malt. Une touche de maïs, maïs en crème est aussi apparente. L’alcool apparaît initialement comme évidente et très détaché du reste des saveurs. La vraie magie se produit lorsque le liquide attend la température de la pièce…beurre et butterscotch se fusionnent sous des notes phénoliques, boisées et épicées (gingembre) se mariant ainsi très bien avec le malt au ton de caramel, masquant conséquemment la plupart de l’alcool apparaissant initialement comme déplacé. L’étalement devient ainsi plus long, les goûts plus évolutifs. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, carbonatation piquante. Vraiment à boire température pièce. Bouteille, Dép. Rahman, août 2005.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2008 Pours a clear golden color with numerous tiny bubbles forcefully spiraling upward, the head is white, thick and fluffy, the head diminishes slowly and leaves nice lacing on the glass. Subtle and inviting aroma of fruits and spices. The flavor is composed of fruits, spices and yeast, the intensity is moderate, it feels slightly subtle and it goes well with the mellow texture, comfy like a good old chair. As with the rest of this beer the carbonation is moderate, just enough to transport the different elements. This beer is very relaxing, subtle, smooth, the kind of beer I would enjoy on a quiet sunday morning, delicate harmony.

DYCSoccer17 (3499) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Bottle. Sour, funky, DMS-like aromas in the nose of this. Some acidic fruit-like notes and maybe a bit of bananas. Transparent yellow color with a white head a la BMC. Start is kind of must, and funky. Like an old swampy cellar. In the middle, there are sweet malty notes with a nice body turning very very woody to finish with some bitterness as well. A different beer.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Lovely golden beer with a decent head. Starts clear and hazes the closer you reach the huge sediment at the bottom. Very full-bodied and quite potent without being alcoholic as such. Has the typical earthy, musty artinal touch often found in Bière de Gardes. 090602
