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.

Light amber color with a tall head that, when diminished, leaves a spider web behind. Grassy aroma. Watery body, but a good taste of grasses and wheat. Not nearly as bitter as some Biere de Gardes.

Shared big bottle at Monks in Philly. Nice clean beer. Smelled like grass. Had a good yeasty character to it.

Good beer. Light golden color. This is my first beer in this type, and it seems to me like a good introduction. Very crisp and refreshing. Nice winey flavor.

bluevegie (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2004
Clear golden body with a large frothy white head. Sweet, yeasty aroma with hints of lemon and spice. Taste is lovely, from the malty sweet start, then the pleasant alcohol, on to the robust dry finish. I get light grains, lemon, oilly texture, thin to medium body with a fairly long finish. The only thing that I wasn’t wrapped in was the cork but it was worth the wait. Cheers!

Clear and golden. Aromas are lemon, grain and spices -- pretty mellow. Flavours are lemon sherbert with extra sugar. A touch of whisky and grain follows. The alcohol isn’t especially warming for its abv. Still, after 75cl it grows on you!

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - OCT 19, 2004
Clear yellowy appearance, lots of foam, lively streams of carbonation. Soft malty, lightly spiced aroma, mild fruit. Fruity, winey flavor, mild apricot. Astringent dryness towards the end, fair woody spice.

Bottle in France. Found this in the supermarket when on holiday, a pleasant surprise. Golden yellow with white head. Unusual cork. Crystal clear. Very gassy on pouring. A well crafted beer with lots of subtle flavours, would probably benefit from conditioning for a few years in a cool cellar. Too highly carbonated for my taste.

75cl bottle 12/12 written on cork?? Bronzen copper color, super bubbly, incredible resilient head that rose above the rim of the glass and held, like whipped cream. Malty sweet aroma, slight farmhouse funk hiding behind the spicy hop perfume. Not massively aromatice, but it is there and I’m a bit stuffed up right now. Wildflower honey drenched malts meet some sassy hops in the grass near an old hay barn for a picinic beer and walnuts. The malt is nice, not carmelly or grainy, just malty. Not sweet or dry, it finishes with some bitterness, but the emphasis is mostly on the malt and farmhouse meeting. They melt together like butter on warm mashed potatoes. Awesome. Lace coated glass remains. Did seem to thin a bit as I finished it, but not much to complain about here. Wish I had done a side by side with the La Bavaisienne, because I’m rating this one higher, although I think I like the Bavaisienne better! Thanks hey_kevin! Very nice indeed.
