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.

Golden pour with thick foamy head. Complex aromas with citrus, dried fruit and crackers. Good balance, light maltiness, hints of sourdough. Not a fan of the finish. Oily and alcoholic.

Aurelius (4115) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Cool bomber... Good label. Weird clasp on the cork that I haven’t seen before. Murky brownish brew, with tinges of green. Vanilla notes over malt and yeast give it a cakey aroma. Pleasantly effervescent and bitter, not very esteric, dry toffee. Medium body. Finishes out with a vanilla ladyfinger effect. Beer Stop, Tallahassee.

hobsch (435) - Cologne, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle 0.75l. Pours hazy light yellow with minimal head. Aroma is malty, grassy, citrus, slightly spicy. Taste is light bitter, light to medium sweet, yeasty, some citrus, spicy, bit floral. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and sweet, lively carbonation, bit watery, alcohol is well hidden. Ok.

MarkoNm (498) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 17, 2014
Pours a golden color, toppd with a decent frothy white head. The aroma is mild, some malts and some fruity addition. The taste is bittery, but not unpleasantly. Some fruitiness towards the finish. One of the better biere de garde I had.

Bottled, Tnx Jenő! Clear dark golden color with a thick creamy white head. Vivid carbonation. Soft hoppy nose. Aroma is soft buttery malts with sweet tones. Flavour is slightly sweeter with mild but lasting dry hoppy bitterness in the finish. Great balance, excellent beer!

Geschonken uit een 75cl fles, een lichtgeel helder bier met een mooie witte schuimkraag. Hoppig aroma, licht bittere hop smaak, lichte tinten van citrus, mout, honing, kruidig, heerlijk drinkbaar wanneer hij koud geserveerd wordt in een warm klimaat. Een van de betere Franse bieren die ik tot nu toe gedronken heb.

Maakun (563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
75cl bottle. Golden with very big fluffy white head. Sweet malts, honey, some dough, fresh tropical fruits and light herbal notes. Quite sweet. Medium bodied and quite big alcohol presence. Not really that good, boring aroma and too much alcohol.

Case (239) - GERMANY - JUL 28, 2014
My first biere de garde. Pours light yellow with medium head. Aromas of grass, barnyard, citrus, cloves. Taste is sweet and fruity, much like a triple, some spice, green grapes, apple, lemon. Solid body, a bit boozy. Really enjoying the white wine notes. Nice.

Corked bottle, pours clear gold with a white head, has a spicy floral aroma, taste is light sweet malt with some hop spiciness and subtle alcohol, light bitter finish, not bad

Pours crystal clear, very pale yellow. Quite hoppy aroma, spicy. Medium body and bitterness. Aroma promises more than the taste delivers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - A cloudy golden color with a thick white head when poured. A malty sweet smell on the nose and a malty flavor on the pallet.
