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.

mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2011
This is a 3 Monts grande reserve, 8.3% ABV. Spicey hop aroma, bright yellow golden color with a big rocky white head. Juicy malt and spicey hop flavors. Surprisingly light on the palate, but with full and complex flavors. Definitely not belgian in character, and much hoppier than expected for a biere-de-garde. Rather, it doesn’t claim to be a biere-de-garde, but a hoppy "special ale." Delicious.

Tap at molenhof. Pours clear blonde, small white head. Smell is Sharp and malty. Taste is bit bitter. Very pilsner-like taste, but a tad more malty. Ok.

Evilman (31) - Taverny, FRANCE - MAY 12, 2016
Very average beer to me. Somewhat similar to La Goudale, with a higher alcohol level but also less taste. I always found this one a bit difficult to drink until the end.Correct, but clearly not something i’d choose for a degustation. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

Ce qu’on peut trouver de mieux parmi le commerce "tout venant". Une de garde assez équilibrée : corps/alcool, levurage "épices", notes herbacées/sèches de houblons nordiques, douceur/sucre maîtrisé.Bue fraîche assez désaltérante et nous met de bonne humeur, elle fait plaisir, nous régale comme on dit chez nous (Provence) ! Vive la France (même si y’a largement mieux en micro/jeune brasserie) !

large bottle from Real Ale Store, Newark. Rich golden colour with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is grassy, bread spice and yeast. Taste is smooth light honey sweet and dry bitter on the finish. So refreshing, nice beer.

Une belle mousse, un nez un peu «forestier», tourbé. Le goût de céréales reste bien au palais. L’alcool n’est pas trop présent en bouche.

ROSE1962 (194) - POLAND - MAR 18, 2016
Barwa herbaty z cytryną. Piana biała, sztywna gęsta i wysoka. W aromacie nuty cytrusowe, przyprawowe ale też wyraźnie alkoholowe. W smaku dominują nuty alkoholowe, poza tym na finiszu wytrawne, nuty słodwe, chmielowe i ziołowe.

AssKicker (147) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAR 5, 2016
Blonde claire à la mousse abondante et assez onctueuse. Amertume assez prononcée et goût largement porté sur les céréales. L’alcool se fait assez discret malgré ses plus de 8%. Sympa.

Arôme sur la banane bam’s. Beau col de mousse. Carbonée mais pas trop. Amertume bien équilibrée et alcool qui se ressent en final.
