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.

Zilb (21) - FONTENAY SOUS BOIS, FRANCE - FEB 7, 2016
Arôme sur la banane bam’s. Beau col de mousse. Carbonée mais pas trop. Amertume bien équilibrée et alcool qui se ressent en final.

Bygers (1099) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle 0,75l. Pours a pale light straw colour with a fine head leaving some lace. Light and complex aroma with bread and honey, vanilla and even a little licorice. A satisfying bitterness and the same malt dominant taste as hinted by the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PlutonowyMan (265) - POLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Kolor jest z?ocisty, klarowny. G?sta, gruba, bia?a piana. Aromat: lekki chmielowy, z nutami kwiatowymi i czerwonymi owocami w tle, jest minimalnie miodowy i s?odki. Smak jest nieco wytrawny, nuty kwiatowe, owocowe. Tym razem bia?e winogrona, które nadaj? lekko winnego charakteru. Goryczka lekko ziemista i alkoholowa. Wysycenie wysokie, bardzo pasuje. Alkohol delikatnie rozgrzewa.

Druss (9) - Goulburn, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2016 does not count
Ya know...I LOVE this beer. Great aroma, pours a light gold in glass with a decent head. It’s a bittersweet beer with bananas and a bit of caramel with a touch of sourness that compliments the sweetness well. A hint of pear and the taste lingers like a fart in an elevator...except it’s very pleasant. 3 Monts, it should be "French for beer!"

Bottle at private tasting with Justin J (7/1/15). Great European example of what a Biere de Garde should be. Lots of bready and sweet malt character, but tempered by a lively carbonation. Earthy, sweet, effervescent -- really good.

PriorL (2906) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2015
APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: very sweet, pilsener like, but lacks a lot. TASTE: mostly sweet, some malts as well... Nothing special.

Ippopodio (108) - ITALY - DEC 8, 2015
Bellissimo colore dorato con una schiuma bianca fine e di media persistenza. Al naso sentori vinosi di frutta maturauva bianca sotto spirito e nocciole. In bocca il corpo medio e morbido celano l'alcol fino ad un finale secco che inganna la bevuta rendendola facile.

Pale, clear straw colour with a fine head leaving some lace. Light and complex aroma with bread and honey, vanilla and even a little licorice. A satisfying bitterness and the same malt dominant taste as hinted by the aroma. At first I felt that the balance was perfect however alcohol does linger on the palate.

Golden ver carbonated. Taste is sweet and complex. Hazelnuts, vanilla, silky malts very smooth and tasty. A bit sweet to be an any meal kind of beer, but a nice enjoyable beer. Sweet desserty finish.
