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.

Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Aromas of apple, wheat and a little citrus on the nose. Taste is more apple, followed up by lemon juice and hoppy bitterness, backed by biscuity malt. Has a slightly odd metallic tang at the end, and the alcohol is evident too, making it a bit unbalanced for mine. Still, this is a cut above the everyday.

Different than anything I’ve had. Has a hoppy sweetness with almost a white wine characteristic. Very light mouthfeel. It smells like a cross between a lager, a saison and a glass of white wine. Very refreshing with a nice bite at the end. I found this in a grocery store in France and thought for 3 Euros I might as well try it. Definitely good stuff.

Crystal clear, yellow to golden with medium head that dissipates. Aroma is candy, light sweet malt, sugar, mainly light malts. Nice but a bit one dimensional. Taste is medium sweet, alcohol notes, light herbal and floral notes, some fruitiness(white grapes), some light citrucy notes too. Some bitterness at the finish. Medium body, light to medium carbonation. A bit one dimensional in general but decent brew.

0,7 l bottles at the Olivarius hotel in Conflans. Apperance: Allmost clear yellow colour with a hint of hazyness with a pillowy light creamy white head, which leaves some lacing.. Aroma: Light malts, Grass, Straw, light citrus and floral hints with quite some yeast. Taste: Moderate sweet,Light malt backbone, some lemon and grass with quite some yeast, alcohol and a odd ok herbal notes. Good bitterness. Slick texture, medium body, below average carbonation. Good Beer de Garde, maybe they yeast is slightly to dominant.

Ulysse (256) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2015
Whiff of yeast. Golden pils like colour. Tiny bubbles foam head. Tastes this typical metallic trait of cheap pils. Carbonation is shy but abundant. After a few sips its alcohol content is dominant. Mouthfeel is ok. Could quench thirst ok but not worth more.

Bottle in a hotel while in France with Susan. Pours a pale gold with a white creamy head. Aroma is earthy, yeasty, malty with some grassy / flowery hops, light zesty citrus. Finishes dry. Really nice beer. Picked up at a random grocery store.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 My everyday beer, perfect for warming up before a cold evening or a party! Good French bière de garde although the alcohol taste is a little bit too strong.
