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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Golden pale color, huge carbonated white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is lightly citrusy and musty with some funky cheese in there too. Flavor is lightly salty. Good beer, I enjoyed this one.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2003
Very pale yellow pour with a medium size layer of head and some lacing. Lot's of carbonation playing around in the glass on this one. Somewhat sour nose, yeasty, kind of a wet hay smell, though it's not too strong. Sweet malt, yeast/bready, and quite a bit of spice comprise the flavors on here. Starts off pretty mild and hits hard with a spice filled finish. Tingly palate and light bodied. Nice.

Quite flat, blond color. Simple aroma, corn and peanuts flavor. Quite disappointing.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Let me start by saying that for some reason this is one of the most difficult beers I've tried to rate. Pours a sparkling gold color with persistent white head with tiny bubbles swimming around, lively carbonation overall. Slightly sour white wine like aroma with hints of yeast, something musty resembling a lambic. Flavor really varied from taste to taste, ranging from a malt sweetness to mineral water, white wine again, woody. Medium body. Finish gets a bit dry, with sharp pepper and spices tingling the tongue. Classy and very good overall.

jonas (6053) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 Some bitterhop aroma, some sulphury notes as well, later some alcohol aroma. Deep golden, champagne carbonation, big rocky head. Warming medium body. Quite nice balance between fruity malt and hops, but i wish a particular flavor would stand out a bit more, this way the beer is more like a strong Helles. Smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol aftertaste comes when the beer warms up.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Pale golden color with a substantial, solid white rocky head. Aroma was strong - lots of coriander and cloves, along with some citrus orange and sugars. Flavor was spicy and warming - not overly sweet or syrupy - crisp. Slighly nutty - good malt body. Nice hops at the finish. I really enjoyed this beer - very good.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2003
UPDATED: APR 20, 2004 A crystal clear yellow body with a thin, white head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma is balanced with equal parts sweet malt and alcohol. The aroma didn't really capture me much at all, and neither did the flavor. I don't think this is bad, but I certainly don't think it's all that good either. Obviously the malt is most important part of this beer, but even that seems rather one dimensional. Sweet and delicate and subtle, but the no real discernable flavors or aromas, just sweet malt. It may be my lack of appreciate for this beer and this style, but I was not overly impressed, even after my third bottle.

Hansen (7351) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2003
Special palate, foaming, sparkling mouthfeel. Light-yellow, low head. Has something like nuts in the aroma and flavor, a bit to bitter.

Rastacouere (6155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 24, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 Golden coloured and very carbonated. From the appearance only, I could almost believe it's a macrobrewery's beer if it wasn't of the nicely laced white head with small regular bubbles that stick to the glass greatly. It's as golden as it gets too, not so macroish finally:) This head, while diminishing stays until the glass is empty. It's also showing intense carbonation. The aroma is very herbal, hoppy with light notes of lemon, bread and flowers. Mouth entrance is sweet, but hops rapidly take over, it gets grassy, nice bitterness. Light sourness surrounds the fresh floral hops. Medium mouthfeel. I guess I should try to age one, because it didn't quite leave that much of the expected impression on me.

egajdzis (5527) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Poured a clear golden color with a large rocky white head. Aroma of orange, coriander, and yeast. Slight nutty flavor, also lighter fruits such as grapes, some banana and a little lemon. Carbonated mouthfeel. As it warmed, it lost the carbonation and developed a sort of slightly stronger witbeer characteristic.
