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.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 1, 2006

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Lovely golden beer with a decent head. Starts clear and hazes the closer you reach the huge sediment at the bottom. Very full-bodied and quite potent without being alcoholic as such. Has the typical earthy, musty artinal touch often found in Bière de Gardes. 090602

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2005
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Vegetably malty nose (very lagerish). Flavour is hoppy and malty with vegetable notes. Sweet alcohol and notes of vanilla and weak pear saves the beer. Gets very pleasant when it’s been poured for a while and gotten a few degrees warmer.
