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.

Well balanced and deceptively light for an 8.5% tripel. Not outstanding but very drinkable.

Chudwick (1782) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 13, 2014
A 75cl bottle that is a bitch to open. Nose is weedy, grassy and wheaty. Almost dry. Slightly sweet. Almost refreshing. Decent bit nothing more.

AgentAle (401) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
Aroma is a sweet maltiness hints of Belgian sugars and some dark fruits. Taste is a fruity snap with some bitterness that finishes well but somewhat plain. Body is a clear gold with a very frothy head

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Bière correcte de soirée. Peu chère, toujours le même goût mais plaisant à tout le monde car facile à boire.

Bu en bouteille de 75cl, une bière très correct pour un rapport qualité prix intéressant, avec un côté très moelleux... Honnorable

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, hefig, würzig, leicht herb. Geschmack malzig würzig, hefig, leicht alkoholisch.

Pale yellow, nice top. Looks more like a lager than a specialty beer. Hops dominate, medium bitter finish

Douberd (1694) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2014
750 ml bottle at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 8.5% Pours a pale golden yellow colour, with light activity in the body in the form of tiny bubbles. Almost three fingers of thin, white head, with okay retention, I wouldn’t mind the foam staying a bit longer though. Light lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts, straw, light alcohol, some grass. I have to agree with previous ratings, this one smells like a pale lager. Taste is sweet, very malty, and basically follows the aroma, with some hay, nuts and grass. The alcohol notable on the finish mainly and along with some floral notes, possibly the only thing that makes this beer interesting. Medium thin body, fizzy carbonation. Overall an average beer.

Rotaldinho (22) - Paris, FRANCE - MAR 13, 2014
Blond slightly dark but clear for a special beer of this strength. Its foam is abundant and persistent. There is clearly a strong alcoholic presence that masks fruity aromas moderate to low. In the mouth, the 3 Monts is surprising lightness. The final reveals aromas of apples with hints of spice and a hint of bitterness, all accompanied by a lighter than the nose augur but clearly present alcohol presence.

Une bière convenable pour le prix le houblon est bien dosé idem pour le céréale.
